Redberry Court – Real Estate Photography – Whitmore Lake, MI

We stopped by a beautiful walk-out ranch in Whitmore Lake, MI that was For Sale By Owner (FSBO). This brick home has three bedrooms, three baths and sits on just over 11 wooded acres in addition to being 4,700 square feet. The main floor of the home has an open concept feel with an encompassing kitchen, living, dining, and family rooms. There are two fireplaces, a spacious finished basement, a 4.5 car garage, and a jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. From the main floor, you have access to the deck that overlooks the wooded property, and from the basement, you can walk-out onto a Trex patio. There is also a fire pit in the backyard, which can be used any time of year in Michigan! If you’re selling your house and want professional photography done, don’t be hesitant to reach out!

From this angle, you can see the stairwell leading to the basement.

From here you can see the connection of the foyer, kitchen, and living room.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and a 6 x 9 foot island!

Another look at the open floor plan. Tons of natural lighting, and check out the fireplace!

As you can see, there are hundreds of different ways you could set up furniture in this floor plan!

A peak at the master bedroom- so spacious with a lot of natural light and a sliding door leading to the deck.

The bathroom is inside the master bedroom. Very convenient!

There’s enough space in the basement for a seating area around the fireplace.

There’s also space for games! A round of pool, anyone? The sliding glass doors lead to the walk-out patio.

From this back exterior shot, it makes it easier to imagine the deck and walk-out patio.

Here is a closer look at the walk-out patio.

Terminal Coding Competition – Event Photography – Ann Arbor, MI

University of Michigan held a Coding Competition at the Michigan League on their Ann Arbor campus. The competition started at 11 a.m. and students spent the day coding for Terminal, a game where the goal is to beat the “boss” by writing algorithms that would automate their gameplay. The students were broken into teams of three and together they worked to defeat the boss in Terminal and to win a cash prize plus exclusive job opportunities. This event was hosted by Society of Women Engineers and Correlation One, and sponsored by Citadel Securities, who had recruiters present to talk with students about their interest in coding. It was an all day event with lunch included. At the end of the day, only two teams could win with their boss-beating algorithms. It was a super cool event to witness with so many intelligent and motivated young adults. Check it out!

When students checked in, they received free “swag,” like these Terminal t-shirts.

With 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms to complete the two-story home, the property is the definition of privacy in its secluded location, allowing for large windows that let in natural lighting in every room of the house, including the master bathroom which features a private veranda. The property sits on just over 11 acres of land, and has a beautiful view of a small pond and natural skyline just off the back deck.

The kitchen is one of the biggest bonuses of the house. With granite counter tops, hickory flooring, and Amish-made Graybal cabinets, the chef’s kitchen features a stove-top island, snack bar, pantry, and a very open floor plan: leading right into a breakfast nook and family room.

The home also features an office space, with built in book shelves, and full laundry room on the main floor. The master bedroom and bath are also on the main floor, featuring a spa bathtub, tile shower, two vanity sinks, and dual walk-in closets. The main-floor living area also has a fireplace in the sitting area just off of the kitchen.

The lower-level is also fully finished with a kitchen, fireplace, and bathroom, walking out onto the back patio and in-ground pool. The pool itself comes with a slide, and is surrounded by an iron fence for safety. In case of rain, the deck overhangs across the patio, providing a dry space to listen to the rain or host a few friends.

The video continues with a look into nearly every room of the house, showing both a wider view as if you were standing in the room for yourself, and various intricate details of the house’s most interesting features — including marble flooring, wood-work, granite counter tops, appliances, and even a look into the backyard pool.

The video ends with the home’s gorgeous view  — a look off the back deck and into the yard, complete with surrounding trees, pond, and beautiful natural skyline.
