Celebrating the Residence at 820 Southlawn Drive in East Lansing, an artfully designed H style mid-century modern home by Manson and Carver Architects in 1956. Fast forward to the thoughtful renovation impeccably executed by the Owner and Stevens & Associates to reflect and attract the new century modern buyer of today. The expansive and diverse uses of clerestory windows, bullseye and privacy glass, dramatic 11 foot ceilings and bright open spaces connect you to nature while the completely remodeled landscape offers privacy and tranquility in the Glencairn neighborhood. Exterior-wise every square foot of the lot was reinvented from grass to gardens, lighting and landscape and driveway to drainage. A gated entry at rear carport leads to the gorgeous backyard and gardens and the restored retaining iron wall extending along the rear lot adding to the privacy and mystery of this home. The backyard and limestone courtyard with gas fire pit is entertainment space intended for nothing but simple enjoyment of time and space. Breathe in... the magnificence of this home. The main floor renovation in the Kitchen, Dining and Primary Bedroom/bath areas down to the studs have redesigned these spaces! Finishes including wood and porcelain tile floors, 100% wool carpeting, custom wood cabinetry, built-ins, quartzite counters and professional grade appliances accentuate its vibe, while the glass detail, light, and design complete the masterpiece. The transformed open-kitchen area is jaw-dropping, heart thumping phenomenal and the heart of this home! All who gather here will surely be enchanted with the space and view. The 1st bedroom/study with en-suite bath located off the kitchen area, is perfect for extended stay guests or family. Along the west side of the residence is the gallery hall that connects two bedrooms with an adjoining marble and tile bath, a study, and the primary suite. Each room have their own unique distinctive features. Bedroom one is large enough for two queen beds, has a decorative fireplace and 3 closets including one with built-in bureau. Bedroom two is adorned with 3D wall tile and walk-in closet. The study has grass covered papered walls and wood built-in shelving and cabinetry. Both bedroom 2 and study feature solid wood hinged and pivoting door enclosures that are original to the home. Down the gallery hall and overlooking the courtyard is the simple yet elegant primary suite with built-in bureau and seating area. Walk through a very generous walk-in closet and be prepared to go-gaga-over the porcelain tiled bath with sleek mirrored medicine cabinets, floating and electrified vanity and glassed-in shower with transom window shedding light in from the courtyard. Take a moment to step outside the primary suite and envision sipping coffee or beverage of your choice to rev-up or wind-down your day. Before heading outside or downstairs, take a moment to check out the back hall mudroom area with built-in organized drawer and cabinet storage. Downstairs, features a multi-purpose room with built-in workstations, exercise room, half bath and workshop. The owner fully respects and appreciates this home's history and design intent. Homes of this era were built to last, however, modern day improvements and energy efficient updates are essential for the home to sustain today's market and tomorrow's trends. Awaken your mid-century dreams where modern day intertwines with post era finishes in one of East Lansing premiere neighborhoods and home to MSU. A complete list of updates is available upon request.
