Spectacular lake house boasts midcentury design elements in Michigan

This spectacular modern lake house was designed by J. Visser Design, nestled along Gull Lake, in Kalamazoo County, Michigan. Midcentury design elements, low slung rooflines and a neutral color palette gracefully blend this stunning custom home into its lakefront setting.

The main house is cradled atop fourteen helical piers, the height of its crawl space methodically calculated to keep the dwelling above the water table while concurrently as low to the ground as possible for aesthetic purposes. Generous glazing and an array of doors — one, a 20-foot bi-folding glass door off the recreation room — line the back of the home, encouraging interaction with the lake and outdoors.

An open floor plan integrates the kitchen, living and dining rooms and keeps this home’s inhabitants feeling connected. Sleeping quarters offer tranquil sanctuaries, including isolated and sound-deadened master and guest suites, children’s bunk rooms, an accessory guest building, and even a quiet spot reserved for the family’s beloved Airstream trailer.

An abundance of amenities make this home the ultimate refuge for summer vacations, including an outdoor shower, a firepit, a swinging daybed for lazy afternoons on the back porch, a built-in dog kennel and a regulation bocce ball court.
