Take the bluestone walkway, into the formal courtyard entryway, which is lined in brick knee walls & boxwood hedges, and then framed with lilac trees. As we head into the backyard, you’ll see that this lake house estate resides along Lake Michigan, so we were mindful of the water backdrop, when designing the patio and landscape. The owners sure do enjoy their spectacular view of the lake from their bluestone terrace, accompanied by their brick fireplace, which reflects the brick of the home.
