ANN ARBOR, MI – From its mid-century modern design to its high-end contemporary renovations and addition that doubled its size, a home in the Ann Arbor Hills neighborhood offers the best of all worlds, real estate agent Laura Fisher said.
Built by noted Michigan Stadium addition builder Henry deKoning in 1950 as a family home, 2225 Belmont Road has been updated and expanded as a dream home for a pair of former University of Michigan athletes and their family.
Listed at $4.3 million, the home at 2225 Belmont is MLive’s House of the Week.
“It’s true mid-century architecture where you’ve got a lot of windows, floor to ceiling,” said Fisher, the co-listing agent with Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “You get the contemporary amenities of the home gym, the spa, the sauna and media room, which you don’t find with the traditional mid-century home.”
The five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom home offers 7,310 square feet of space after undergoing extensive renovations and a 3,600-square-foot addition in 2016, along with two acres of private land with modern landscaping.
Located one mile from the University of Michigan campus, the home features a natural creek border and numerous outdoor amenities for entertaining guests.
The addition includes four new bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, a laundry room, media room and third garage space.
The renovation added numerous modern amenities, including the installation of a Control4 smart home system with wired surround sound inside and outside the home. The home includes three furnaces, three high efficiency air conditioners and a hot water heater with continuous hot water loop.
Additional improvements include a new sewer line, roof, concrete driveway, sprinkler system, dog bath, steam shower, dry sauna and home gym.
The lower level of the home features a 3.5-car garage garage with resin chip flooring, offering storage space with two separate doors for entry.
A spacious family room on the lower level features a wood-burning fireplace, two built-in queen-sized Murphy beds and built-in book cases.
A mudroom with built in lockers, additional refrigerator and a dog bath with marble floor round out the lower level.
Custom hickory plank floors are included throughout the home.
The main floor of the house includes a kitchen featuring custom cabinetry, Ceasarstone quartz counters and premium appliances, including a 48-inch stovetop with stainless steel hood, farmhouse sink and a 10-foot center island with drawer microwave.
A spacious living room and family room with flexible space offer extensive views of the outside, with a wood burning fireplace featuring custom limestone surround and vintage Chevron hardwood floors.
The master bedroom offers French doors and views of the surrounding yard, and matching closets.
It is accompanied by its own bathroom that includes a tub, shower and double vanity.
Three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms round out the main level of the home, with a shared bathroom at the end of the hall.
The third floor features a large media room and wet bar, with access to both a screened-in porch and balcony with composite deck.
A workout room with surrounding glass walls is equipped with a sauna, and half bathroom with shower.
A fifth bedroom closes out the third floor with another built-in Murphy bed and an en suite bathroom.
Surrounding the exterior of the home are a concrete patio with dining space and grill and a bluestone patio with an underground line for a gas fire table.
The yard also includes a hot tub, horseshoe pit, play structure and fire pit.
