About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The Coffou Cottage, designed by Brininstool-Lynch and completed June of 2008, has a modern aesthetic and is set in a sweeping meadow and black oak hardwood reserve. The home was awarded a 'Citation of Merit' from the American Institute of Architects for 2010. It has been featured in international design and architectural publications. The 2700 sq ft linear design includes an open plan of the kitchen, dining, living area and porch as one room intensifies the views to meadow and woods to the South. The arrangement of the rooms and glass throughout every area of the house are to maximize views of the outdoor environment. A fireplace is positioned in the front hallway that divides the bedrooms from the living area faced by a custom built sofa. The screened in porch is a perfect summer haven for relaxing and dining.

The home has many classic mid-century modern furnishings, some dating to 1948, all collected with comfort in mind. A tribal and modern art collection enhances the redwood and glass lines of the home. The kitchen accommodates both the serious and the casual cook. Every bedroom has an in suite private bath.

Located amid the cottage community of Michiana Shores, the house is secluded and offers total privacy while interacting seamlessly with the outdoors. The Lake Michigan beach is an 8 minute walk.

This is a rare property to experience contemporary modernist design while affording a relaxing and tranquil living experience. The property is located just 68 miles from downtown Chicago.

Home featured in Azure Magazine in Jan/Feb 2009 issue, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Magazine, Martha Stewart Living 9/09, and Dwell 11/09.
