Ann Arbor home with ‘transparent cabin’ vibe is listed for $ 1 million
ANN ARBOR, MI – The second major overhaul of a mid-century modern home in the Ann Arbor Hills neighborhood helped give it a ‘modern twist’ as it begins the next chapter in its evolution.
The 2,883 square foot home, located at 2671 Bedford Road and listed for $ 1.02 million, was built in 1951 before the addition of large windows and other architectural improvements in 1974.
The latest renovation in 2019 helped transform the home’s lower level into a finished space, adding three new bathrooms and two bedrooms to the residence, which is MLive’s home of the week. Houses of architectural style and prices are presented every Wednesday.
To learn more about the home, which features three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and plenty of views of the surrounding neighborhood, see the list.
“The most important thing when you’re inside is that you kinda feel like you’re up north in a see-through cabin,” said Avery Evenson, co-rating agent for the home with Megan Mazurek of The Charles Reinhart Company.
That’s the feel of the classic mid-century modern home, Evenson said, highlighting the clean lines and symmetrical architecture, the two-story foyer with floor-to-ceiling windows and a newly renovated four-season room with a sliding garage door opening. the bedroom to an outdoor patio.
The renovation has opened up the main living level, which includes a chef’s kitchen with a quartz countertop island and new stainless steel appliances, including an industrial refrigerator and a separate pantry for the butler.
“Before the renovation, the kitchen was just a lean, pantry kitchen,” Evenson said. “The builders wanted it to be an open concept so they completely removed the wall, remodeled the entire kitchen and added this huge and beautiful island to make it more of a gathering space.
Overlooking all this, a front living room with views from all angles, equipped with a wood fireplace with a gas outlet.
The formal dining room leads to the indoor / outdoor four-season room or greenhouse featuring a fireplace, slate tile, and a transparent garage door.
“They completely drywall, insulated and added a garage door, so in the summer, fall and spring you can roll it up and have fun inside and out,” Evenson said.
The master suite has a balcony, two closets, double sinks and a powder room with two shower heads and a bathtub.
A second bedroom on the main level includes a brand new full bathroom.
The first floor has a bedroom, a brand new full bathroom, a utility room and cloakroom, a wine cellar, and a fourth bedroom – completely surrounded by glass panels – which can also serve as an office.
“The idea of the builder behind the (office) was with COVID once everyone is working from home and they want a nice office,” Evenson said. “It’s sound private, but he still has that view.”
