A Tranquil Legacy
The confluence of Ann Arbor’s Mallets and Swift Run Creeks has created the South Pond wetland area, home to over 100 bird species. South Pond is the focal point for the amazing views in this custom-designed home. The previous home on the lot, built in 1958 by the current homeowner’s parents, was the site of many treasured childhood memories. It’s also where our client has lived throughout adulthood. The previous home was in disrepair, so it became clear that it would need to be deconstructed and a new home built in its place. Throughout the project, our shared vision was to create a structure that would preserve those memories for the next generation of family. The site plan ensured that old-growth pine trees were carefully preserved during construction. In addition, the well pump, water filtration system and original kitchen cook top were salvaged and reused in the new home.
Designed to capture the serene views of the Huron River, this new home is as aesthetically stunning as it is resource-efficient. Features like a Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) roof, radiant in-floor heating, low-flow water fixtures and advanced framing techniques all help ensure that this home will be easy to maintain, energy-efficient and durable. A zero-threshold master bath, polished concrete floors, and grab bars will enable the residents to age in place.
If you’re thinking about building a new home and not finding what you’re looking for with large-scale developers, maybe a design-build contractor is right for you. Come see this one-of-a-kind Meadowlark home and experience the difference.
