Picturesque Michigan

This home design is meant for a scenic location such as a hillside or lakeside. It could be either a primary residence or a vacation home. It’s exterior has a modern appeal with rustic materials to complement natural surroundings.

The first floor is arranged for family comfort with spacious areas for living, dining, lounging and enjoying the views. A large deck off the kitchen expands the living space outdoors. When the air is chilly outside, back-to-back central fireplaces will warm the home on both levels. Multiple window seats offer cozy nooks for curling up with a favorite book.

Off the dining room and kitchen is the mudroom, powder room, pantry, laundry, a roomy garage and stairs to the basement.

A short, private hall, leads to the first floor master suite with ample amenities including a sitting area with access to the deck, two closets, and a master bath with a large glass shower and wide vanity.

Michigan First Floor

On the second floor are three large bedrooms with ample closet space and a shared bath that you’ve probably noticed is a common feature in my designs. The best part about the second floor is the loft space overlooking the living room below. A common area for the kids or guests, the loft can be a lounge area, game room, media room, whatever the family desires. An added bonus is the set of french doors with a shallow balcony to take in the scenery from the height of the treetops.

Michigan Second Floor

This is one home where I would love to spend long weekends and holidays, for certain. I can already smell the cedar, pine and fresh air. Ahhhh!!!!

Next week…midnight train to Georgia!
