2124 Tuomy - FrontQ. What distinctive features set this home apart?
First impressions are important, and 2124 Tuomy makes a good one. A Georgian colonial with lovely formal design elements – classic symmetry, a pediment and columns at the entrance, a wide cornice at the top, seated atop a rise on a large lot. Inside, more of the same – a lovely banister in the entryway, solid six-panel doors, and refinished hardwood floors. The formal dining room features lovely built-in corner cabinetry with shell detail, wainscoting, and French doors to the terrace. Rooms are spacious, ceilings are high and large windows throughout bring in loads of natural light.

2124 Tuomy - Dining RoomQ. What are the advantages of the location and neighborhood?
Lucky residents on Tuomy Road enjoy the quiet of the Ann Arbor Hills neighborhood and are just a short hop to Washtenaw. Turn left to easy access to shopping and highway; turn right and you’re on campus and on your way to downtown. It’s close to schools and a short walk to Gallup Park, the Arb, and walking paths.

2124 Tuomy - Sun porchQ. Have there been any recent renovations or upgrades?
The kitchen has been remodeled with marble and granite counters, farm sink, and lots of cabinet space – originals with leaded glass are complemented by new white ones. The walk-out basement has a finished family room with high ceilings and fireplace and a half bath.

2124 Tuomy - KitchenQ. What Amazing views will the new homeowner be able to enjoy?
At 2124 Tuomy, the best view of all is your own backyard – a secret garden! There is a large brick terrace with plenty of room for a dining table and seating area. The yard is large, quiet, and private with lots of perennials and mature trees. Off the back of the house and sharing the same views is a sunporch that has paned glass on 3 sides – the perfect place to perch. For a view from above, the master is a 2-room suite with attached bath and private balcony which overlooks the backyard.

2124 Tuomy - Master BedroomQ. Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about the house?

Private Retreat with a Prime Location


This week we are featuring  Ryan Team’s listing – 1248 Westview Way, Ann Arbor, MI 48103

1248 Westview Way - Ann ArborQ. Can you describe the architectural style of the home?
This is a contemporary design by Bill Farrand that is both stunning architecturally and quite practical and functional in its design and floor plan.

1248 Westview Way - EntryQ. What distinctive features set this home apart?
The house is built of wood, stone and glass. The stone fireplace and exterior is hand hewed rock and not a faux façade. This home was built to entertain. With its open floor plan, you have an unobstructed view throughout the main living space. Adjacent to that space is a multifunctional room with beautiful maple plank ceiling that can be used as a den or parlor. It is plumbed for a wet bar and can be a great space for entertaining or a dream office.

1248 Westview Way - KitchenQ. What are the advantages of the location & neighborhood?
Saginaw Estates is just inside Scio Township providing lower taxes, but it’s just minutes to downtown Ann Arbor, shopping, highway entrances and schools. You feel as though you are miles from anything, but in fact you are very close to everything. At the end of a cul-de-sac, at the end of the scenic driveway and set deep in the lot, the house feels like an escape from reality; an oasis that is worlds away from anyone and anything.

1248 Westview Way - Eat in KitchenQ. Have there been any recent renovations or upgrades?
Extensive landscaping and gardening has been done. Many of the huge windows have been replaced, newer roof, newer furnaces and central A/C, newer hot water heaters, much of the interior was recently repainted, and the hardwood floors were recently refinished. Everything has been meticulously maintained in order to retain the original architectural integrity.

1248 Westview Way - LivingQ. What amazing views will the new homeowner be able to enjoy?
The home was designed so that every room has an incredible view of the 3 acre lot. Whether you are looking out over the waterfall and landscaping or at the woods that create complete privacy for the house there is a peaceful view from every room. You can sit out on the many decks, patios and balconies and listen to the peacefulness of the woods and the water.

1248 Westview Way - Deck 2Q. What makes the price of this home so great?
This home is unique and in a prime Ann Arbor location. It’s rare that you can get such beauty, privacy, architecture, and space for this price. This is not another ostentatious million dollar home, but rather an architectural expression of the union of function, beauty and nature.
