DIRECTIONS 68th St. East to Alaska Ave. Alaska Ave. South to Fairbanks Estates.

OVERVIEW Solomon Custom Homes welcomes you to visit our Spring Parade. Over the years we have received compliments, recognitions of excellence and awards, but the one thing we love to hear is “This just feels like Home.” Nestled in Fairbanks Estates, just south of the quaint village of Alaska in a charming country home setting amid old barns and pastures, this home overlooks fields and deer paths just a short walk through the grasses to the Thornapple River. The design is a dynamic combination of contemporary clean and vintage farmhouse style, offering efficiency conducive to family life with elements from simpler times. The centerpiece of the house is an oversized kitchen that spills out onto an open floor plan. The see through fireplace offers a peek at the cozy sun-filled Library just beyond. Wide plank white oak and tile floors are spread through the main floor. The family-style kitchen is custom built and has space to welcome an active family, a house full of guests to entertain, or a couple children working on a school project. Extensive Wainscoting runs through the Entry, front Den and Boot-room as a nod to nostalgia. Custom crafted wood beams are in place to create a beautiful and luxurious look in just the right places. Second floor bedrooms offer contemporary custom built vanities, barn doors, and a can’t-miss, craft room complete with 12’ ceilings and third floor dormer windows.

INCLUDES Square Feet: 6,346 Bedrooms: 4 Bathrooms: 6 Full, 1 Half Price Range: Contact Builder for Pricing OVERVIEW “COASTAL PLANTATION” In our not-so-distant past, beach cottages responded simply and intimately with their settings and the seasons. This response continues with our spring parade home.

Scan QR Code for home info and map

Coastal Plantation, built on the shores of Lake Michigan, was designed in a southern vernacular style where cottages have sweeping porches and verandahs, sleeping rooms, and low-pitched metal roofs with ample overhangs. Douglas DeHaan of DeHaan Homes and Laura Davidson of Dwellings collaborated on the design and the interior architecture. You are invited to this charming cottage which nods to the past—leaning on historical architecture— and winks at the present: an open and inviting floor plan, cozy nooks, built-in beds, and layers of textures and fabrics. See how we work with our clients to arrange their spaces, design the casework, furnish their home, and even plan the landscaping to take advantage of the beauty which surrounds their home. Allow extra time to take in the hand-crafted beamed ceilings, the custom-built double island in a spacious kitchen, open air dining and sitting rooms on bluestone indoor patios, the outdoor fireplaces-grilling areas, and the beach bar. This is just the beginning...
