Find Out What's Inside This $15.750 Million Dollar Mercer Island Estate
For those seeking an exceptional waterfront lifestyle, this gated Ben Leland estate on a level .75+/- acre boasts 98+/- feet of waterfront, a spectacular dock that accommodates a large yacht + 2 covered slips, & a panorama of views of both the Seattle & Bellevue skylines. Multiple sets of LaCantina doors, patios & lush grounds create lovely indoor/outdoor living. Four ensuite bedrooms including a primary suite w/sweeping views & spa-like bath. The lower level is hang-out central w/rec room & lake access while the upper level also features a bonus room. An outdoor oasis awaits - pickleball court, hot tub & 2 jet ski lifts. Soak in sunsets while roasting s'mores at the sandy beach. Perfectly placed on the North end minutes to shops & restaurants.
Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America
Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
