Doug and Sue Beat lost the auction but gained a new home down the street when they built their 6400 sq ft. on three lots with Mack Moon and Gary Zachrich. The home is their regular, vacation and retirement home all in one, built with ADA specifications and is absolutely stunning.
Doug took a hands-on approach with the architectural elements while Sue decorated the home with some assistance from Cathi Lloyd. The huge floral arrangements gracing the home, both inside and out, were handcrafted by Sue, who keeps a room just for her hobby.
Variegated shades of green are used in the foyer and living areas, artfully paired with black and white. A state of the art kitchen, sunny dining area and abundance of bedrooms make the space perfect for the Beat’s children and grandchildren to come and visit.
The basement is one-of-a-kind featuring another kitchen, a theater, pool table and private spaces to hide all of the toys and games. The outdoors is spectacular featuring an infinity pool from CC Pools, outdoor dining areas, bath house and patio space to host a party of 200.
Doug who sells new and used industrial electric equipment and Sue met at the University of Toledo as freshmen. This is their dream come true home and they certainly have turned that dream into a picturesque reality.
