An Elegant Weekend Escape:
A weekend retreat is distinguished by light, airy spaces with sweeping views of Lake Michigan. A gravel drive through the woods terminates in a paved entry court defined by a long pergola which forms a transition between the exterior and interior. Once inside, an entry hall dissolves into tranquil, open living areas which flow effortlessly into one another. The rear façade of the house is punctuated by two curving bays housing a screened porch and a family room which capture views of the changing light and color of the lake. A pale palette of colors, including silver gray shingles on the exterior and whitewashed reclaimed wood floors on the interior, enhance the feel of spaciousness and light.
