Located with an amazing view of Sodon Lake in the heart of Bloomfield Hills, this once tired 1950’s dated ranch home underwent an extensive 2-year addition and remodeling. The style and theme was completely reworked into a French County home with a transitional fair. The main directive was an open-flowing floor plan with defined rooms maximizing the lake views and providing natural day lighting.
The designer and client saved a good majority of the foundation while adjusting and tweaking the structural elements, to help in maintaining the integrity of the design. The home exterior features the perfect proportions of natural limestone, hand-troweled stucco and galvalume exterior metal roofing and drainage system. The use of oversized wrought iron lights fixtures help give the white exterior an anchored feeling. The exterior has a simple, yet sophisticated rhythm and overall clean lines. The interior of the home is a clean blend of the client’s tastes coupled with transitional elements such as floating wall cabinets, oversized industrial style kitchen sconces and a marble waterfall edge on the kitchen island. Overall, the home appeals to the masses due to captivating proportions and timeless aspects, all while being understated clean and uncomplicated.
