The third stop on the 2015 Northern Home & Cottage Home Tour is located in Glen Arbor at 7190 Arbor Pines Drive.

Designer Angela Goodall describes this residence on Lake Michigan as a contemporary beach house with some industrial edginess as expressed in accents of weathered bronze metal. In this extensive cosmetic remodel, the only structural changes were to the master bedroom where the ceiling was raised to introduce a unique feature called a bronze collar tie. Additionally, a closet was removed to widen the bathroom, allowing space for a contemporary freestanding soaking tub—with a view of Sleeping Bear Bay. Soft gray cabinetry and Calcutta Gold marble round out the bathroom.

In the kitchen, a water-colored glass tile backsplash replaced pickled wood paneling and a whimsical mermaid mosaic-inset, once set behind the stove, was moved to where she belongs: in the bathroom shower. High-end appliances, white-painted custom cabinetry, a new island and marble countertops complete the kitchen.

In the living area, a country style woodstove was replaced with a contemporary stainless model that shines against its backdrop of Ann Sacks stacked-stone tile on the wall. A new wet bar and dark-gray stained cabinetry complement the newly refinished and stained hardwood floor.

Other must-see’s: A girl’s bedroom and Crow’s Nest with soft white walls and chartreuse shag carpet; built-in bunk beds in the boys’ room; an entertainment room with dark navy blue walls to enhance the in-home theater experience, and a one-of-a-kind hand-blown glass fixture in the foyer.
