Modern Tudor

This home is a celebration of contemporary design and traditional beauty. Its open, 12,500-square-foot floor plan is infused with style and ingenuity, and provides a dramatic setting for the owner’s unique furnishings and fixtures. Marvel at the remarkable engineering of the suspended staircase. Be awed by the floor-to-ceiling windows that allow in lots of natural light and provide spectacular lake views. And ponder the unique 500 bottle clear glass wine room adjacent to the indoor pool, home theater and exercise room.

Harmony on the Lake

Colonial charm and intimate character highlight this sprawling lakefront estate. Distinct living spaces blend beautiful form with intelligent function while modern amenities create the perfect living space for this generational home.

The main level features a grand foyer, a formal living room, cozy family rooms with custom wood paneling and mantel, separate sitting rooms, a home office and a sunroom that provides beautiful lake views. Three glass corridors connect into an impressive, bright, gazebo area that lead to the garage, fitness wing or back entry of the home.

Chic Chateau

A renovation to make this home more closely reflect the owner’s personal style involved reconfiguring space and redesigning rooms to maximize lake views. The stunning result is a much airier and more modern home featuring an open foyer with floating staircase, a redesign of the living and family rooms, and the addition of oversized sliding doors. To better entertain family and friends, a custom chef’s kitchen was created and the dining area was expanded.  The all-new, private master suite features a large bedroom with exposed beams, a one-of-a–kind closet, and a master bath with a euro shower, bidet, marble floors, freestanding tub, and glass shower.

Scenic Sanctuary

Updating this Lake Michigan treasure added not only the open floor plan and amenities this active family desired; but also provided clear, unobstructed views of Lake Michigan. The existing floor plan was updated to make room for a mudroom, butler’s pantry and large kitchen. The main living space was reconfigured to gain better views of the lake while bedrooms and baths were all renovated and made more functional and appealing.

The exterior was painted a cheery yellow, new garages were added and additional living space was added with the installation of new decks and screened in porches.

We recently returned to this home to add more living space for their growing family. We seamlessly added an addition over the garage that features a full bath, kitchen and sitting area, two bunk rooms along with a clever play area loft.

Serene City Dwelling

Built on a secluded, 20-acre lot in 1957 by renowned architect John Randal McDonald, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, this mid-century home is characterized by its simplicity and timeless modern design that features natural materials such as quarried stone, wood, and glass.

In keeping with the artistic beauty and design of the home, an addition was built using a combination of new and reclaimed materials that, indoors and out, seamlessly blend the existing and new areas of the home.

A garage, new main floor entrances, a combination mudroom/laundry room/dog wash area, and a full bath were added. The kitchen was reconfigured and modernized, and the living area was freshened up. A wood beam separates the old ceiling from the new, larger space. A stunning staircase leads to the private master suite and balcony.

Victorian Beauty

The renovation of this Victorian-style home includes updates to give it many modern amenities and a brighter, more colorful style while keeping its original character and allure. The original floor plan was untouched with the exception of the reconfiguration of a master suite on the second level. Original moldings, floors, and fixtures were repaired and updated throughout. New furniture and design elements were added to enhance the original beauty of this classic home.

Fresh Outlook

Two families have come together to share this one renovated space that provides them with two distinct living areas, each of which is ideal for their separate lifestyles. These two generations live side by side in harmony without sacrificing space, privacy, or style. The original home was completely renovated and now features a large gourmet kitchen and eating area; an open family room; a new, four-season room; and a master suite. The lower level was updated and reconfigured to include a second kitchen and family room, an additional laundry room, and extra kids’ bedrooms and baths. Connected by a breezeway, the other side of the home features an addition with the same great amenities.
