Brolin on the Bay 4491 Sherwood Point Rd., Sturgeon Bay
Brolin on the Bay is a spectacular transitional style Door County home overlooking the waters of Green Bay, near Sherwood Point Lighthouse. Built in 2021, and designed by the owner, this spacious 3,800 square foot home exemplifies an open plan on the main floor with a seamless living, dining, kitchen, and great room area that accommodates large events while keeping guests comfortable in spacious areas. The dining room’s live-edge wood table was made by a local artisan from trees harvested on the property, and the coffered ceiling of the living room has wood planks that were harvested from the interior walls of the former cottage. A unique feature of the outdoor space is the two fire pits: the front overlooks the water, and the rear overlooks the backyard.
Horseshoe Bay Farms 7212 Horseshoe Bay Rd., Egg Harbor
This year’s House and Garden Walk is proud and excited to feature Horseshoe Bay Farms for Walk goers. “The mission of Horseshoe Bay Farms, Inc, is to act as a responsible steward through preservation, rehabilitation, and activation of historic Horseshoe Bay Farms to secure its future for generations to come.” Walk goers will have the opportunity to take self-guided tours of the grounds showcasing the dahlia garden, vegetable garden and horse barn on the 102-year old property. HSBF represents the largest intact historic farm complex in Wisconsin established in 1870. In addition to the historic grounds, Horseshoe Bay Farms welcomes “Patrick Dougherty, award winning, internationally known creative director behind Stickwork, a larger than life, interactive creation made entirely of locally sourced sticks and saplings.” In addition, the Auxiliary is planning to have artists, local musicians and food trucks.
Robb's Idea/Ray’s Folly 8039 Thimbleberry Lane, Baileys Harbor
Ray’s Folly, a Lindal Cedar Home built by Shaw Building and Design located in Bailey’s Harbor, combines modern and traditional design elements with many nods to nature inside and out. Floor to ceiling windows fill the home with light and offer unobstructed views of the towering white pines that surround the property and inspire the home’s “tree” theme. The owner worked with Milwaukee interior designer, Angela Westmore, to conceptualize her vision for this bright, relaxed, and playful home. Like the interior, the spacious backyard, designed by BayLake Landscape, prioritizes relaxation, art, and nature, and it is home to whimsical sculptures by local artists from the Idea Gallery, a large patio table, and a cozy fire pit.
SVART HUS 9165 Rasner Way, Fish Creek
This spacious 3,200 square foot Scandinavian style home on five acres (three bedroom, 2½ bath and open living / dining concept) was designed and constructed in 2021, by owners, Kate and Scott Smith in partnership with Form One. Their goal was to create “a visually passive home” within the area. Yakasugy (Japanese charred siding) is the featured siding for the home. The home consists of two buildings connected by an entry breezeway resulting in separate living and sleeping quarters. The buildings “also offer an opportunity to see from one into the other creating extended sight lines. The build is a case study for Nakamoto Forestry as it features a unique combination of their suyaki shou sugi ban black cladding and silver weathered sugi (Japanese Cypress).”
Hoke Home 9225 Rasner Way, Fish Creek
Built in 2021, this unique modern and energy-efficient home was designed by the owner and the builder, Factotum, with architectural drawings by Terrance W. Martin, and design assistance from Sturgeon Interiors in Whitefish Bay. The owner, who is an artist, chose to construct the home from 20 x 40 foot shipping containers “using traditional rural vernacular and shapes, but reinterpreted for a modern aesthetic.” The home showcases the owner’s art collection. When entering the 1,700 square-foot home into the open-concept living, dining - kitchen area, visitors have views of the backyard deck and gardens. The home’s atmosphere is bright and airy facilitated by white walls and floor to ceiling windows. The industrial feel can be recognized in the ceilings formed by the container.
