Island Terrace

Explore +

Aptly named, Island Terrace overlooks a southwest ridge of Mercer Island and provides expansive lake, mountain, and territorial views. Most spectacular is Mount Rainier over Lake Washington at sunrise and sunset and the sparkling city lights across the water.

This is a peaceful and private neighborhood of several cul-de-sacs and approximately 30 lots, mostly developed in the 1960s and 1970s. Many of the homes feature Northwest Contemporary-style architecture with characteristic soaring ceilings, walls of windows framing the views, warm woods and natural stone, and generous indoor and outdoor spaces.

Tucked off of Island Crest Way on the south end of the island, this neighborhood is within walking distance of Pioneer Park, the Mercer Island Country Club, the QFC Shopping Center, Lakeridge Elementary School, Islander Middle School, and the South Mercer Playfields.
