South Haven Two Story

This home was honored with a national award for excellence in home design



by Myles Biggs

This home was recently recognized as an entry of distinction in the 3,001 - 4,000 sq. ft category of the 2015 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Home Design from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

Perched on the highest geographic point in a gated community near Lake Michigan in South Haven, Michigan, this South Carolina coastal inspired Contemporary Colonial was designed to be family friendly, with plenty of indoor and outdoor gathering space as well as open concept interior designs.

With 3,300 square feet of toal living space, the architecture of this home is indicative of homes already in place throughout the neighborhood and takes sprawling lake views into consideration.

The home owners wanted to put an emphasis on places to gather with their extended family. They were also seeking a coastal/beach retreat feel and were able to accomplish their vision through a two tiered deck and the use of varying coastal finishes and colors.
