The yard and gardens are an artist and master gardener's extension of the Arts and Crafts style. The purple wisteria-covered pergola enclosed patio is magical in the spring, and enchanting and private any time of day. Well-established trees including gingko, redwood, Japanese maple, wisteria and climbing hydrangea. Healthy, established perennial and spring bulb beds. The handmade A&C inspired copper rose and garden trellis' are a special artists accent. Designed to fit the garden spaces perfectly and accent the style of the home. The same pergola design wraps around the property, enclosing the north gardens with climbing hydrangeas and ruby red viburnum bushes. A 20 x 30 tent fits perfectly to enclose this space and make it even more magical! The pergola extends behind the garage to provide the most artistic, efficient firewood storage area in West Michigan! The 2-car A&C inspired garage with ample storage also contains a level 2 Tesla Charging station. Guests travel to and stay at the Cocoa Cottage for this unique feature.

Between the gas, forced air Energy Star heating system, Central AC and real wood burning fireplace, cozy and comfortable has been the name of the game at this home/guest retreat! Ample, "hidden storage", has been created in all the 2nd floor knee-walls. The basement is well designed and organized. An efficient, laminate cabinet and countertop enclosed workroom is the handy man's delight.
