Sadly we don’t know the name of the architect behind this design. But we know we love what he has done with the 1960s midcentury modern property in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, USA.
A great house in an equally wonderful lakeside setting, located on a three-quarter acre site on Wing Lake. You can see why the architect went for plenty of glazing on the rear of the house.
That’s just one selling point. The other is a design that looks to have been updated, but without losing the striking detailing of its original era.
That includes built-in walnut furnishings, some amazing stone interior walls, double height ceilings, a floating staircase, beams and much more.
Some spaces looks quite contemporary, including what looks like an extensive gym / leisure space (which might just be the finished basement), but overall the character of the 1960s is the dominant force here.
As for the internal living space, that covers 3,609 sq. ft. over two floors, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms in total, one of which is the master suite with study, separated by a large stone fireplace overlooking the ‘great room’ and its double height ceiling.
Other reception space too, plus a bathroom and nanny suite in the lower level.
Outside is of course that lakeside location, with extensive patio space and a double garage also included.
The agent points to this as a ‘wonderful opportunity & potential for renovation or expansion’, which might well be the case. But we like the house just as it is. If you do too, $1,429,000 is the asking price.
