Located just off Douglas Road about a quarter-mile north of Sterns Road in Michigan, Crystal Water offers villa homes starting at $149,900, including lot. A low monthly homeowner’s association fee covers lawn care and snow removal, and for those who are anticipating retire-ment, Michigan does not tax Social Security or public pen-sion benefits. A large lake in the center of the neighborhood is aerated by a playful fountain.
The home at 2029 Fountain Circle, the model for the community, is a fine example of what you may expect if you choose to build here.
The exterior is clad in stone and gray vinyl, and the cov-ered front porch shields your guests from the weather.
Inside, the foyer boasts a ceramic tile floor. To the left is the first of three bedrooms. This gracious space is notable for its high vaulted ceiling and a beautiful palladian win-dow. A large closet and an alcove are included in this room.
The bedroom is adjacent to a full bath. A white vanity with a cultured marble top looks lovely here. Nearby is a guest closet.
The foyer opens to the great room, framed beautifully by classic pillars. The tall vaulted ceiling adds space and drama to the great room. A gas fireplace boasts a granite surround and white wood mantle with classic dentil molding.
Off the great room, the master bedroom boasts a deep tray ceiling with a convenient ceiling fan. This generously proportioned room is large enough for a king bed, a dresser, an armoire, and bedside tables.
The master bathroom has a large vanity with plenty of storage space. White wood is topped with white cultured marble for a clean look. The step-in shower has two seats, and a large walk-in closet provides even more storage.
Off the great room, the open kitchen features beautiful tall maple cabinets with brushed nickel hardware. Counters are topped with Wilsonart laminate in a hi-def finish, giving them the look of stone, while the floors resemble Tuscan marble. A peninsula snack bar is lit by attractive pendant lights, and provides extra counter space. A pantry offers storage for your foodstuffs. Stainless steel appliances provide a professional look. An adjacent dining area has attractive recessed lighting.
A back hall off the kitchen leads to a laundry room, a coat closet, and access to the two car garage. The garage is well insulated and finished with painted walls. It contains pulldown stairs to a large attic.
Each home comes with a one-year warranty and is Energy Star rated. Sixty-six homes will make up the neighborhood, many of them waterfront; others are on serene wooded lots.
