If you’re a midcentury lover dreaming of a lake getaway, this three-bedroom, two-bath home might be your answer. Located on the eastern shores of Lake Michigan in Coloma, Michigan, the glass-and-brick gem was designed by Chicago architect Winston Elting in 1956.
The home is currently on its third owner, and the 2,000-square-foot structure has been meticulously restored with authenticity in mind. The interior is lined with redwood walls and tongue-and-groove ceilings, while a brick fireplace and walls add contrast. Like many midcentury homes, the exterior walls facing the street are nondescript, creating privacy for the floor-to-ceiling glass walls that open onto views of the lake.
A central courtyard provides an airy feeling for the bedrooms, and the bathrooms integrate the same brick and wood motif found in the main living rooms.
Outside, a patio stretches the length of the house and a larger section provides ample space for dining and entertaining with an outdoor fireplace. The 2.3-acre lot boasts a long paved driveway and parking area, trees, and a trail down to the beach.
