Tucked into the small southwest Michigan town of Coloma is a cube-shaped, modern cottage. Wrapped in steel and featuring sliding glass doors and many windows, the home stands out with its minimalist aesthetic.

Listed for $499,000 with Bryon Farmer of Coldwell Banker Anchor Real Estate in St. Joseph, MI, this gorgeous home appears to be a steal. Given what a modern and sleek two-bedroom, two-bath abode would cost in pricier locales, this architectural delight can be snapped up for less.

Built in 2011 on a half-acre lot in Western Michigan, the 1,152-square-foot cottage would make an ideal second home for a buyer looking to escape Detroit or Chicago on the weekends.

Lake Michigan’s shoreline is only 5 miles away. But right across the street from the cottage—at the end of a short footpath—is another body of water: Paw Paw Lake, with a private boat dock for the owners.

The home sits on Paw Paw Lake.


Dining area

A walk-in closet, stone fireplace, luxury kitchen appliances, and dedicated laundry room are some of the features and amenities. An outdoor hot tub and cozy fire pit boast lake views, and there’s also a cement patio overlooking the lake. Storing personal vehicles is easy thanks to a detached two-car garage.

The soothing bathrooms feature blue wall tile in the walk-in shower of one and slatelike tile in another. Both feature raised sinks for a modern accent. Bamboo flooring, a ventless gas furnace, and 1-foot-thick, energy-efficient walls mean the bathrooms are efficient and built to last.

Remotely controlled shades and a built-in sound system are just a couple of the smart features built into the cube. For a buyer who wants to think inside the box, this modern lakeside retreat is a marvelous option.
