Modern Residential Architect in MI Designs Lakefront Home

This modern residential home takes lakefront living to a whole new level. An infrared spa, steam shower, hot tubs, sauna, lounges and pools create the feeling of living in a mini luxury resort on Walnut Lake in West Bloomfield, MI.

The floor to ceiling walls of glass and linear fireplaces that surround the home provide breathtaking views of the lake. Since the site is fairly steep, you need to take a 20 ft. bridge to the front door. This created an opportunity to install more floor to ceiling windows on the walk-out level front of the house, making the lower level feel like part of the house. The 20 ft. bridge continues into the house and many of the exterior materials, such as limestone, clear cedar, stone and metal flow through the interior.

The covered porch has a 20 ft. wide retractable door off of the kitchen. The retractable door slides open and at the press of a button, screens come down, which creates an additional sunroom on the lake side of the home, equipped with a bar, pizza oven, outdoor heaters and other amenities.

The 5 bedroom, 13,000 square ft. modern residential home has a flat roof and boasts 4 levels of floor to ceiling windows and high, dramatic ceilings. Floating stairs and glass bridges help connect various rooms with a modern and luxurious feel.

The space under the 5 car garage was used to create a home theatre and storage area.  Another unique feature is a range that was taken apart and custom built into the quartz counter top in the kitchen area.

The views of walnut lake, 3 bars, 2 kitchenettes, pools, a pizza oven and a floor hockey arena on the lowest level provide great entertainment for guests and makes the homeowners feel like they are living in a mini resort every day.
