Lakefront Cottage with Coastal Interiors


Designed by Wayne Visbeen and meticulously built by Mike Schaap Builders,this lakefront cottage features inspiring coastal interiors and a view that you won’t soon forget.
Situated perfectly on the shores of Lake Michigan, this 4,300 square foot home was designed to capture the stunning waterfront views. With an eye for details, coupled with fine craftsmanship and a coastal flair, this lakefront home is comfortable, functional and timeless.
The exterior reflects the coastal style showcasing a nautical blue with contrasting white trim. A matching oversized garage sits comfortably next to the home,  providing storage for the largest water toys.
Upon entering the home, the main floor captures the incredible lake views. The living room, seating area, kitchen and dining room, all overlook the shimmering water with an abundance of oversized windows. The hickory hardwood floors and alder wood ceiling beams add a natural finish to the relaxed setting.
Complementing the outside view, the kitchen’s rich white cabinets and tall ceilings help keep the space feeling light, and the island, made from the same alder on the ceiling, brings a cohesive feel to the open space. Off the kitchen, an effective use of space is featured with a butler pantry and extensive built-in cabinetry lining the hall.
As you will see, no detail was left undone in this gorgeous lake home – the rich textures, custom woodwork and timeless style are evident around every corner.
