About This Property
The allure of the logs; meaning it's more than just the physical essence of the home. It's a mysteriously attractive and fascinating feeling one experiences as they step into the home and feel the calming and relaxing atmosphere. A comfortable home where folks can spend time in a setting where they can truly be themselves. The homeowners found this spectacular four and a half acres of lovely cohesion offering secluded wooded privacy filled with sprawling trees along with a vast variety of wildlife and birds. Best of all, the property fulfilled a desire to be on the water with 212 feet of stunningly beautiful Lake Michigan private waterfront while protecting the investment from any impact of Lake Michigan cyclical water level fluctuations.The private beach was exactly what they were looking for with white sugar-like sand and a place to take peaceful walks, kayak, canoe and enjoy the brilliant and wondrous colors of many sunsets. The owners built this log home in 2008 spending considerable time on strategic planning of the site design. A low bluff was chosen for the location of the home allowing the owners to take full advantage of the secluded privacy and enjoyment of wildlife, while taking in the gorgeous water views from almost all vantage points within the home. Additionally, this placement would also allow for focus on the lifetime safety of the home from an investment perspective, as historically Lake Michigan (like all the other Great Lakes) can encounter cyclical water level fluctuations. So, this placement of the home on the property made the most sense to solidly protect their investment to be enjoyed by future generations to come. Exceptional Craftsmanship has been used throughout this four bedroom, four bathroom, 5,938 square foot custom built home with attention to detail. Distinct features include the use of hand scribed, fourteen-inch spruce logs from Montana finished in a natural warm honey hue with a few notable "character logs" which are quite large and placed in the exterior and interior entryway areas as an eye catching and welcoming focal point leading into the heart of the home. Log homes are noted to be highly energy efficient, acoustically sound, allergy friendly, constructed to be weather resistant and are a green choice supporting the use of a natural sustaining wood product for the better of our environment. As an architectural focal point to take full advantage of the breathtaking wooded and water views, numerous floor-to-ceiling arched windows are used throughout the home which allow for light filled, bright and spacious rooms; of which most feature tall vaulted ceilings. This home features beautiful hardwood floors with radiant in-floor heat, a large professional well appointed gourmet kitchen and a generous, spacious yet cozy living room with a quintessential Michigan field stone fireplace complete with a custom mantle of split old growth timber. There are two quiet secluded rooms: one to use as a library or study, and the other to use as a craft | sewing | music | or artist's studio room. The private master bedroom suite is the perfect place to read your favorite novel curled up by the home's second handcrafted field stone fireplace or take a relaxing bubble bath while enjoying the outdoor views from the well designed master bathroom. The remaining bedrooms along with the upstairs can accommodate up to twelve guests or the upstairs can be used for a wonderful recreational space or home gym depending on your preference. There are plenty of ample size closets and storage areas within this home, along with a sought after, generous sized three car garage complete with handsome custom wood overhead doors which are ideal for housing your everyday drivers as well as collectibles. This home offers many inside and outside gathering areas to enjoy time spent with family and friends and is perfect for entertaining; which is what life's all about. Offering a unique lifestyle and the best of both worlds, this year round, four-season, exceptional waterfront log home provides seclusion and privacy coupled with ample outdoor activities including: hiking, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, SUP boarding, sailing, fishing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and biking. While nearby are marina's for boating, golf courses, tennis and equestrian riding facilities along with boutique shopping and dining, farmers markets and art & music events as well as plenty of opportunities to enjoy a car ride and explore all the wonderful quaint lakeside towns along the coast of Michigan.
