Banks Period Homes, LLC
Built in 2015, this historic reproduction is 5100 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms. A massive center chimney with brick exposed through the cathedraled third floor is visible interiorly from the open foyer. The common spaces incorporate an open floorplan achieved through the use of concealed steel beams throughout the home. Many antique and luxury details, not commonly found in new construction, are the heart of this home. Single carrera marble slabs form the shower walls, 300 year old hand hewn beams support cathedral ceilings, a hand crafted reproduction front entry taking 400 hours to complete graces the façade, handmade tumbled brick surrounds the foundation, large granite slabs form the exterior steps and massive kitchen fireplace, hand crafted cabinets and high-end European appliances comprise the kitchen and wide antiqued white oak creates the floors throughout the home. Perched high on a hill with 1000 feet of road frontage, privacy, and views across the Saugatuck River, this home includes a swimming pool with granite details and patio, a cedar roof, and an oversized custom cupola on the barn styled garage to match the enormous chimney mass.
From a mechanical standpoint the latest in systems technology is utilized including a constant pressure variable speed well pump, high efficiency mini split HVAC inverter, 96% efficient furnaces, a high efficiency tankless propane water heater and ZigBee/Z-Wave compatible devices.
Overall, this home represents the best of traditional artisan craftsmanship and the latest technologies.
