Creative and Contemporary: Calkins Point Residence on Mercer Island
Situated in the midst of lush vegetation and green topped lawns in Mercer Island, Washington, the Calkins Point Residence by Scott Allen Architecture incorporates all the modern concepts in residential architecture that create sleek and stylish homes.
