A contemporary-style house in Novi with an interior that gives the impression of being a seafaring vessel and offers panoramic views of Walled Lake may be off the market soon because its sale is pending.
The more than 4,400-square-foot, four-level home is located at 1270 East Lake Drive on Walled Lake’s eastern shore and near Novi and 14 Mile roads. It also has private, direct access to the lake.
Built in 2004, the house has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and one powder room. The asking price is about $1.4 million and the house is listed by Keith Brandt, broker and owner of Brandt Real Estate in Northville.
Brandt said the home was designed by Bloomfield Hills architecture firm AZD Associates Inc.
It has a two-story foyer. And it has curved and angled walls that mimic a ship’s hull. The home’s interior has a modern look composed of hardwood, steel and glass with art deco finishes, such as the three-story steel and glass wall that’s part of the staircase or the tempered glass floor panels. Brandt said those make it seem like walking on air.
Another outstanding feature of the house: there’s a view of Walled Lake from all four of its levels.
Brandt said the home’s most attractive quality has to be the views of the lake it affords.
“The home sits near the center of the lake’s eastern shore and has the most amazing view of the sunset every evening,” he said. “At night, when the house is lit up, it’s like a beacon, making it easy to find the way home. And like the owners say, ‘After a long day at the office, being in the house is like on vacation every night.'”
He said there’s an area of the home’s main and second floors with a bay window “where you can stand and literally see 98% of the lake.”
The main floor has an open floor plan that compliments the home’s design, the broker said.
The house also has a treasure trove of amenities, including an abundance of built-ins, high-end cabinetry, motorized blackout and privacy window blinds, fireplaces, a multi-zoned HVAC system, heated floors in the master bathroom and lower level and walkout access to the backyard, and a stone patio complete with a natural gas fire pit.
It also has an attached two-car garage, a covered porch and a deck on the house’s second level.
Brandt said he thinks the house would be perfect for someone looking for a daily escape to a peaceful setting on the water.
“You can lounge on any level of the house, outside on the patio, the deck, or the dock, and enjoy the beauty all around you,” he said.
