Receive all the gifts of Northern Michigan’s beautiful seasons in this unparalleled Craftsman home overlooking the stirring beauty of Lake Leelanau. The superior quality of construction extends beyond the granite surfaces, white oak wood flooring, luxury Loewen windows, and custom cherry cabinetry. Solid mortise and tenon joints secure tremendous timber beams to posts throughout that bring architectural interest and rhythm to the space. The hefty footings of the foundation were built to withstand all of the area's elements (and beyond), and a double-roof system ensures the sun’s heat disperses before it enters the interior, keeping the home cool in summer. The great room with its soaring cathedral ceiling and wall of windows is the highlight of this home. The incredible view carries your eye outside; it’s impossible to ignore. The elegant open kitchen is the perfect size to cook efficiently while friends gather around the marble island. Upstairs, a huge primary bedroom is a calming place to unwind, and an ideal space for a den or nursery sits just off the primary ensuite bath. The lower level was recently remodeled toward a more relaxed minimalist feel, while offering plenty of space for guests when they just keep on returning to your beautiful home. (Can you really blame them?) There’s also room for a home theater, a gym, or playroom. Be sure to find the hidden door in the bookcase wall leading to a secret room. Solon Township Park is only a minute’s drive to take a swim—it’s a sandy bottom—or drop your boat in for waterskiing or fishing on sublime Lake Leelanau. You can also kayak through 548 acres of protected waterways to downtown Cedar and hike the nearby Ingraham Preserve. The home’s three covered decks and the yard's easy terrain offer every opportunity to engage with the abundant wildlife. While the home is for sale, this property truly belongs to the resident deer, rabbits, and sandhill cranes.
