Captivated by South Haven’s natural charm and waterfront beauty, this storybook shingle beach house is exceptionally true to its lakefront character.
Designed by Mike Schaap Builders, this beach house features over 3,600 square feet with five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The careful design of this open and charming layout paired with grand views from nearly every room capture all the warmth and playfulness of lakefront living.
When it comes to the exterior of this storybook shingle beach house, a beach friendly fiber cement siding in a soft shade of blue blends seamlessly with the water backdrop, while contrasting white trim and darker blue window clad lend definition to the exterior.
Inside, you will find trendy design elements like cabinets painted in navy, braided hemp lighting, cabinet insets and white-washed European white oak floors. These complement the home’s coastal flair with nautical décor and warm hues.
Now, enough talking… I’m sure you’re dying to see the interiors, right?
This beach house features fine finishes and rich trim details including wainscot and various painted ceilings. Navy cabinets are Benjamin Moore Deep Royal 2061-10.
The wall is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter and ceiling is Benjamin Moore White Dove. The inset is Benjamin Moore Kentucky Haze.
The entire main floor features whitewashed hardwood floors. The one we see above is Chateau Collection / White Oiled/European Oak floors. Very beachy and serene. Also very durable!
“Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter HC-172”.
A built-in desk was placed just off the kitchen for easy access. Notice the stunning whitewashed oak floors.
Cabinets and trims are Benjamin Moore White Dove OC-17.
An impressive kitchen painted in Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter (walls and cabinets), and with stunning Ann Sacks tile backsplash, quartz countertops, richly stained bistro table and Viking appliances overlook the generous, but clearly defined, living and dining rooms.
The backsplash is Ann Sacks from the Koi line in a shark skin color.
Kitchen pendant lighting is Uttermost Gironico Round 5-light Metal Glass Rope Lighting Fixture Pendant – $371.80
I’m loving every detail of this dining room, including this bold rug!
This dining room also features extensive built-ins with extra storage and workspace, such as that distinctive dining serving piece featuring quartz stone and a lake reflecting mirror, which certainly maximizes space and make entertaining a breeze.
The dining room chandelier is Uttermost Gironico Chandelier. (Discontinued).
This living room looks stunning with the louvered doors on the cabinetry. The fireplace surround with quartz stone coordinates with the kitchen counters.
Once again, the paint color is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter HC-172.
Skillfully designed, upstairs presents a restful master retreat with private balcony with close-in lake views.
This is the life! 🙂
The master bathroom tile simulates the hardwood floor in the main area of the house. The floor tiles are Urban Wood White Birch – Florim – Porcelain Floor Tile.
This guest bedroom feels cheerful with this coastal palette of blues and greens. Wall paint color is BM Revere Pewter as well.
In the small bunk room you will find space maximizing built in bunk beds with ultra-clever steps that provide storage.
The lower level features a extra guest quarters with additional laundry room, full beach bath, and a basement kitchen with navy cabinets and beach-friendly stained concrete floors.
This sectional is by Sam Moore and it’s a great sectional!
The basement opens directly to the sands of Lake Michigan.
I don’t think I would want to leave the house with a view like that…
We can see many beautiful places, but my heart always beats a little faster for shingle homes…
