Cottage in the Woods

Set on a secluded wooded lot, this new home is reminiscent of the cottages that the Owner has visited over the years on the southwest shores of Lake Michigan. The 5,000 sf home is for empty nesters with lots of grown children and grandchildren. The master suite and main living areas, situated on the first level, capture views to the pool as well as the surrounding mature trees and yard. The house is detailed traditionally, albeit quietly, to capture the relaxing atmosphere the client desired. Spaces are open to each other, yet delineated with trim, transoms and wide openings in order for each room to have its own individual purpose.

Three guest suites are situated on the upper level, to afford privacy to visitors. The basement has two additional guest bedrooms and game and media room. The screen porch and pool changing room are conveniently located near to the pool and allow easy access for both adults and kids.
