 A perfect property begs for a perfect home, and a tear-down is often the simplest move toward achieving what works best for your family. When our clients acquired this truly stunning parcel, perched high on a critical dune along Lake Michigan, the existing structure was dark, dated and in need of reconfiguring to function comfortably as the family’s vacation home. Leaving only the garage standing, we started from square one with the rest of the 3800 sq ft house, taking care to stay within the former home’s footprint. An open floor plan extends the well-appointed kitchen to the back patio, showcasing a spectacular wine cellar and custom fireplace along the way. Sound-proofed bedrooms offer solitude, and a new game room above the garage is a cozy play space for kids and adults alike. We call it The Aerie because eagles love it here… They kept a vigil in the backyard trees throughout construction.
