Roles & Responsibilities
This gracious 4,500 square foot Modern Home is situated on one of the highest dunes in Miller Beach, Indiana. Lee Companies, custom home builder, was involved from the initial planning stages to completion, working intimately with the homeowner, architect and interior designer. The primary focus of the home are the breathtaking 360° views of Lake Michigan and the surrounding communities. The house also has many custom features including a multiple level custom artistic book shelf and a transparent dining table which opens to the office below. The siding, windows, staircase and cabinets were all custom-made in Germany specifically for this project. The master bedroom and bath suite features a walk through shower with marble walls and a soaking tub with 180° views. The home also features the exact oak floors featured in the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago, which gives the home the distinct feeling of a gallery or museum. The garden design was inspired by the High Line Park in New York City and pays homage to the local history of industry and railroads.
