For $5.75M: Barn Meets Modernist Temple on the Lakefront


A 4,000-square-foot 1981 contempo on a private Lake Michigan beach has just listed for $5.75M. On the approach, one expects the rabid barn-like exterior to exert a major influence on the interiors. That's not the case as the drafty white-walled living spaces hold the dimensions of a barn in places, but little of the aesthetic. To to ensure you're getting six mil worth of home, the owners have the place dripping with "custom European finishes": for the cabinets, counters, sinks, baths, and tile. The geometry of rooms is very unexpected and unpredictable, as are the number of living rooms— six by our count. Numerous decks and patios address the lake and a broad white sand beach is yours for the taking. According to Jameson Sotheby's listing agent Nathan Skillicorn, the architect is Moore, Lyndon, Turnbull & Whitaker. This isn't the only astounding home on the block: NBC featured a neighboring property sold a couple years back.
