Location: Holland, Michigan
Overlooking one of West Michigan’s premiere inland lakes is the refined Bayside residence. A study of the exterior reveals a series of dormers, oriel windows, wings, and bays breaking this sprawling floor plan up into smaller spaces, while prioritizing vistas to the lakeshore. The exterior is clad in tan quarried stone and is sheltered by double pitched roofs with deep overhangs of grey slate, crisp white trim, and Doric columns.
The Foyer sets the tone for this home and serves as the dividing element between the Master Suite to the right, and more public spaces to the left. A second floor bell-shaped balcony traces the light and airy Foyer, with wrought iron railings standing in contrast to the white trim and tan walls. The Master Suite has a centrally placed bathroom, which grants access to both the bedroom and dressing rooms. At the center of the Master Bathroom is a saucer dome with chandelier overhanging a large soaker tub flanked on the opposite wall by a pair of vanities.
On axis, and in sequence, to the Foyer are the Great Room and Lake Room, both of which are trimmed in neutral tones and natural woods. The Lake Room, with its floor to ceiling windows, overlooks the Bayside’s grand terraces and lush landscaping. The Great room terminates the homes other main axis, which includes the centrally located Kitchen and subsequent Dining and Lounge rooms.
Trimming the Kitchen are painted white classically detailed cabinetry and coffered ceilings. Anchoring the center of the Kitchen is a large island painted in a soft black and topped with marble and natural wood counters. Further past the Kitchen and anchoring the homes left edge is the octagonal Study, with white built-ins and a saucer dome painted with a depiction of a sky on a summer day
