Escape to the magic of Leelanau in one of the county's most exquisitely crafted waterfront homes. Timeless architecture best describes this retreat! Boasting over 14 acres and 183’ of Lake Michigan frontage, this property is one of only five private harbors with a covered boat dock in the State of Michigan. Perfect to house the restored Chris Craft or even a small yacht right outside your door. Expansive verandas, patios, and decks are wonderful for absolute relaxation just steps from the sandy beach. This waterfront location is protected enough to enjoy all types of water sports (kayaking, paddle boarding, etc) with the privacy 14 secluded acres provides. Friends & family will not want to leave this paradise. The quality-built custom home offers a great room with a jaw-dropping stone fireplace (MI native rocks) and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the private harbor with water views that stretch as far as the eye can see. Tongue and groove cathedral ceilings, locally sourced hand-hewn beams, stunning walnut and flagstone floors, copper accents, four fireplaces, chef's kitchen with high-end appliances (Wolf gas cooktop/stove), custom built-in Sub-zero refrigerator and wine cooler are just the beginning. With multiple main-floor suites, five total bedrooms, and six bathrooms spread out over three floors, the almost 7,500 square foot home is perfect to house all your loved ones while giving adequate space for all to enjoy. Have fun with unique over-flow nooks (guaranteed to be the kids' favorites) including a quaint carriage house complete with an additional 2-stall garage, potting/gardening shed, and upstairs apt./artist studio with sleeping quarters and bathroom (not included in total square footage above).
