Situated perfectly on the shores of Lake Michigan, this 4,300 square foot home was designed to capture the stunning waterfront views. With an eye for details, coupled with fine craftsmanship and a coastal flair, this lakefront home is comfortable, functional and timeless.
The exterior reflects the coastal style showcasing a nautical blue with contrasting white trim. A matching oversized garage sits comfortably next to the home, providing storage for the largest water toys.
Upon entering the home, the main floor captures the incredible lake views.

Isn’t this a great place inside and out? I love the navy exterior with the gray stone, the dreamy lake views and that amazing kitchen! I hope you enjoyed seeing this home as much as I did! 🙂
It’s raining here and quite cold… I’ve baked some bread yesterday and will enjoy some of it today. I woke up and the house still smells freshly baked bread and this bring memories of my grandmother. She used to bake bread for us almost every week and I remember coming back from school and feel happy every time I opened the door and smelled her bread.
Furniture, decor, walls can’t create a home. The people that lives in it are what really transforms a house into a home.
Create special memories where you live.
See you guys tomorrow!
