This 7,500-square-foot Bloomfield Hills lakefront home fulfills the homeowners’ desire for a contemporary home with a private, understated front and an open, welcoming back, ideal for entertaining. The home’s clean lines, glass walls, and natural elements – stone, wood, light – invite the outside in and accentuate the beauty of the setting.
From the street, the house has a discreet one-story appearance, with an entryway glass wall offering just a glimpse of the interior and a view of the lake beyond. Stepping inside reveals the bold dynamic within, with a space unfolding into multiple levels, offering sweeping views of the lake seen through glass walls and a covered patio.
The architecture and interior furnishings work together harmoniously. The richness of the wood, stone, and raw steel complements the lighter tones of the walls and furnishings, creating balanced textures and layers. Features such as the stone wall, wood slat screen, hidden light details, paneled walls, open double-sided fireplace, and soft textiles continue the contemporary design.
The glass walls facing the lake provide an open-air feeling, enhanced by the outdoor living spaces: a covered patio, mid-level terrace with firepit, and a walkout to a lower patio. These areas provide ideal gathering spaces for family and guests. Great care was taken to preserve and highlight the century-old beech tree that towers over the backyard. This elegant home honors and contributes to the beauty of its setting.
