Summerwell Homes hosted its first Holiday Street of Lights on Wednesday at 3051 84th Ave. SE, Mercer Island.

All were invited to join the holiday cheer as Mercer Island’s first new neighborhood in 30 years was lit up for the holidays. Realtors from Coldwell Banker Bain gave tours of two of the finished homes (Lot 15 and Lot 7), and hot cocoa, marshmallows and cookies were provided for the kids. Visitors who brought an unwrapped toy for Toy for Tots were entered to win a glassybaby candle.

The model home on Lot 15 was furnished by Mercer Island’s Six Walls, which also provided interior design services for the whole neighborhood. Summerwell contains 16 custom designed homes, built on the former Coval estate. Future owners will have the opportunity to customize interior color schemes and other features in consultation with Six Walls owner and Summerwell lead interior designer, Dawn Wilkinson.

Each home is a “unique creation” and a cutting edge contemporary design by the renowned McCullough Architects team, according to the neighborhood’s website.
