Manufactured stone and E.F.I.S. ( stucco ) were used on the front of this ranch home to give it a bit of a Mediterranean flare. The dramatic high ceilings in the dining room and open design give the sense of this home being much larger than it actually is.
With their love for northern Michigan as inspiration, the owners requested Lynn to design this home as though it would be built to overlook Little Traverse Bay in Harbor Springs. Large wrap around covered porches, ubiquitous for that area, are prominently used on the front of this home. The enclosed widow's walk, accessed by ladder, elevates far above the property offering spectacular views of Cedar Creek as well as being a great space to just get away. With an in-home office, there seems to be little reason to leave this wonderful home.
This ranch home with a split 3 bedroom design sits on a partial basement with separate access directly from the garage and from the main stairway off of the great room as well. Lynn designed an in-law suite over the garage to be somewhat removed from the other living areas to providing for a private get-away.
This colonial styled two-story home has the appeal of homes from a bygone era yet provides the owners with today's modern amenities. The curved stairway off of the central hall provides for an elegant entry and the uniquely painted dining room ceiling gives the illusion of being endless sky. The side entry 3-car garage is located in the rear of the home as to not detract from the stately beauty of this home.
Brick covers the entire exterior of this beautiful single story home located on a private lake near Angola. The home is laid out to take advantage of the spectacular lake views from most of the rooms in the house. We were contracted several years after completion of this home to build an unattached all-brick garage as well.
