    Property Details

    On the banks of the Red Cedar River, tucked away and surrounded by hundreds of heavily forested acres sits the ''The Neuchterlein House'', a spectacular Mid-Century Michigan Modern work of art built to commercial standards in the 1950's. An extensive renovation after 1998 modernized this home for the current millennium emphasizing reuse of natural material and use of the highest quality materials including granite, glass, bamboo, cork and more. Its passive solar design and south-facing wall of windows moderate the summer sunshine while brightening the home throughout the winter months. This rare and exceptional home on 2.3 acres with spectacular river and forest vistas in Okemos offers 4 Bedrooms, 3 baths, a 2nd floor Master Suite and expansion capability for 5 to 6 Bedrooms if desired. An architectural gem, a work of modern art featuring design cues that honor Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies Van der Rohe. 250' Frontage on the Red Cedar River, 2.34 acres offers incredible views of the Red Cedar River and Legg Park, a Meridian township natural park. Main floor built on a slab with over a foot of insulation beneath it, and incorporates a four-zone in-floor hydronic heating system. A steel I-beam structure lends strength and stability as there are no load-bearing walls on the main floor and allows flexibility for any future renovations. Interior walls feature brick on the East and West ends, and all other walls on the main floor are covered with ¾ inch random width hardwood featuring oak, cherry and butternut; all of which were milled from trees felled on the property. Complete kitchen remodel includes extensive custom cabinetry; stone counter tops and resilient cork flooring. An entry atrium and a Sun Room added on to the Kitchen contribute to the indirect light, space and peacefulness to this home. UPDATES/IMPROVEMENTS include: Renovated first floor Laundry, both main floor Bathrooms; preserving the cabinetry and "Princess Bath" in the guest bathroom. Replaced roof, attic insulation, all interior and exterior doors, interior walls, windows and skylights; window treatments. Flooring was replaced with a wool-blend carpet and cork. Replaced the entire first-floor ceiling with custom crafted acoustic ceiling, hand-made from bamboo and incorporating custom recessed lights allowing heating vents to be invisibly placed in the ceiling. A front concrete drive was added, incorporating subtle color cues to better integrate it with the home. The rear yard and grounds were re-contoured and hardscaped, garden beds and a new gazebo were added. Existing concrete slabs were re-purposed to create a driveway for the downstairs walkout basement workshop/garage. Appliances/Utilities were replaced with new high-efficiency products, including a gas hydronic system boiler , gas forced air furnace and air conditioning, well pump, regulator and water treatment system, water heater and kitchen appliances including gas cook-top and convection oven. "The Neuchterlein House is extraordinarily serene. This is in part due to the beautiful views in every season available in every living space. It is also due to the sound insulation provided by the hardwood on the walls throughout the house, and an additional foot of insulation between the main floor and the upper floor. This is one of the quietest, most relaxing and beautiful homes you will ever experience."
