Description of 600 Washington Avenue, Grand Haven, MI 49417

Every home tells a story... this one has many chapters. A dilapidated church dating back to 1872 was once a historical Grand Haven landmark and now has been transformed into an astounding work of art and a legacy that will live on for generations. The delicate balance of a complete renovation from church to home while still maintaining the original character took over 2 years of intense effort and creative talent before the vision became a reality. Stained glass illuminates the entire interior adding brilliant color and the glass patterns became the inspiration for much of the design carried throughout the entire home. Soaring ceilings lined with wood hold majestic light fixtures while maintaining the warmth and comfort of the main living space including a beautiful wood-burning fireplace. The custom built staircase leads to an upper loft and continues upward leading to the highest point in the home - the bell tower! A new gourmet kitchen features the latest amenities and is surrounded by a striking curved snack bar accenting the loft design above. Luxurious master suite embraces more stained glass, custom tiled bath, and continues the beautiful architectural detail. The wine cellar (former boiler room) highlights aged brick walls and doorway flanked with an iron gate. Many of the materials found during the demolition were repurposed through the home including the original cornerstone buried under the basement floor and the church pews that were meticulous taken apart and reprocessed for stairway and accent pieces. The owners were mindful of the thousands who have worshipped within these walls over the past century, and have left the "reverence my sanctuary" piece in its original location over the back door. This truly has become a new sanctuary... one they now call home.
