Home to one of the most unique settings on Mercer Island, East Mercer features a rain forest setting, with deep ravines and steep hill sides. The homes here range from smaller cabins to luxury waterfront houses. The feeling of the neighborhood is open and light-filled. East Mercer Way does have hairpin style curves running through this neighborhood. This area of the island tends to get more rainfall than other neighborhoods.
