House of the Day: Mercer Island Magnificence

This 13,721-square-foot chateau is the cream of the crop in a land of really creamy crops. The upper-crust denizens of Mercer Island, Wash., are straight-up winners, and their knock-you-on-your-heels waterfront mansions, sitting across Lake Washington from Seattle, wouldn't ever lead you to think otherwise.

Commanding 120 feet of the islands' lakefront, this $21.8 million, eight-bedroom chateau looms large, at its front, over lushly landscaped grounds and, in the back, over an infinity pool that stretches seamlessly toward Lake Washington.

The home's interior features a massive great room, artisan kitchen, "sports wall of flat screens," rotating bar and, for special effect, a gallery that opens onto the grounds of the estate. (The name for that sort of room is a "loggia" in case you were wondering.) The home also has a dock and mooring for your gazillion-horsepower cigarette boat.

Wendy M. Lister of Coldwell Banker Bain has the listing.
