This showpiece home on a 50-ft. bluff overlooking Lake Michigan combines a variety of limestones, stucco and zinc in a vibrant blend of the modern and the classical. Inside, multiscored custom mouldings, granite, stainless steel, and Anigre wood help reinforce that balance. The living room seen here can be viewed from a walkway gracefully framing a coved ceiling.
With aching hands and bleeding feet
We dig and heap,
lay stone on stone;
We bear the burden and the heat
Of the long day
and wish't were done.
Not till the hours of light return
All we have built do we discern.
— Matthew Arnold
