Located in one of Birmingham, Michigan most desirable neighborhoods, this transitional style gem stands out as one of the jewels.
The home is located on a prominent corner, therefore, has two front elevations that must seamlessly flow together. We used architectural elements that turn the corner, such as stained clear cedar, heavy-gauge metal wide corner boards that match the color of the window frames, and stucco projections blended into a clean ledge stone.
The interior and floor plan of this home is anchored with an interior core stairway, that is positioned in the center of the home, allowing for optimal transitions and flow between floors and adjacent rooms. Upon entering the front door into the foyer, the occupant is able to see glances of the rooms beyond thru the open stairway design. There is even a glass floor detail on the upper landing that provides natural light to the kitchen below.
The home features a main level refreshment bar positioned perfectly between the dining room and kitchen. Ceilings soar over 10.0 feet in this 2-story home, but they are uniquely detailed to keep the scale lower and spaces more intimate. The family room has 2 secret concealed doors that lead into a private study that has a large covered patio to interact with people on the sidewalks.
The busy family that resides here appreciates the large mudroom with lockers for all their sports equipment needs. Add to that the well-thought-out spaces on the main level, upper level and even the lower level equipped with a golf simulator, wine cellar, cigar room, guest suite and large open spaces with no HVAC drops because they were coordinated during the design and construction drawing phase of the project.
This home will always be a jewel in the neighborhood and appreciated by the homeowners for many, many years to come.
