About Janet Matzke

We bought the property from the original family and did a studs out remodel. We originally planned to sell it but enjoy the house so much we decided to keep it in our family and share the pleasure of this gorgeous home. We have fun and are sure our guests will enjoy the same.

Why Janet Matzke chose Mercer Island

The minute you walk in to the home you unwind. The huge windows invite the outside in and entice you outside. It has a very relaxed vibe yet immaculately maintained. People who come to visit don't seem to be in a hurry to leave!

What makes this house unique

Private dock with paddle boards, kayaks, near walking trails. We can help you charter an airplane, offer concierge guest services like laundry and house keeping.

Amazing waterfront home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! We were fortunate enough to find this gem for our trip up to Seattle for a Seahawks game. Not only is the location convenient; nestled right in between Seattle and Bellevue, but the home itself is absolutely stunning. We often found it hard to leave to go sight-see because it was just so relaxing to stay at the house and just stare out at the lake view.

It was recently remodeled so everything is top of the line and new. So new, that they didn't have blinds on the bedrooms just yet--but the home is so secluded that it didn't bother us. We'll have to come back in the summer to utilize the BBQ, outdoor living space, and the little private beach area.

You have to rent a car, but that said, there is a park-and-ride on the North End of the island that we used to take us to the Seahawks game/Centurylink Stadium. Super convenient.

The homeowners live right next door so it was convenient for us if we had any questions or needed anything. They were very helpful and responsive--a pleasure to rent from!

Owner's Response: We have now installed window coverings in the bedrooms-the view is so nice from the master and so private we didnt put them up initially.
