This 5,000 square foot Japanese-inspired, modern country home fits into the eclectic and transitional neighborhood of Mercer Island Heights. Situated on a flat parcel of land that backs onto a lush private greenbelt, this home was designed for a young couple with a new baby who will have in-laws living on the grounds part-time. A strict budget of $400 per sq/ft will include everything except furniture, resulting in a challenging project where the clean detailing of this custom modern home will accommodate an extensive wish list from the client.
