Description

Timeless style and casual elegance are the hallmarks of this dramatic, lakefront masterpiece offering spectacular views, glorious sunrises, and over 260 feet of private, sandy beach on the shore of Lake Michigan. A long, winding driveway leads past the single story guest house as it continues to the grand courtyard through a magnificent setting of towering trees and lush landscaping on 4.877 secluded acres. A testament to sophisticated style and fine craftsmanship, presents in this stately stone manor, meticulously designed with intricate moldings, exquisite ceiling work, inlaid hardwood flooring, and luxurious finishes. An awe-inspiring compound of sorts with an open, versatile floor plan, filled with natural light via the abundant windows at every turn. The gracious foyer immediately welcomes as it directs to the rear sightline of stunning lakefront views. Formal dining and living rooms, each have a fireplace and access to the backyard veranda. A large butler pantry with custom cabinetry, wet bar and stone countertops, connect the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, and entertaining spaces. Overlooking the backyard oasis and indoor pool, the expansive family room boasts an additional fireplace, wet bar, exterior and lower level access. Among the many amenities that make this home unique, the heated indoor pool and spa is a retreat of its own with planked, vaulted ceilings, expansive entertaining space and a two story sport court. A home office, mudroom, powder room, full bath and utility room complete the main level, while a centrally located elevator unites all three levels of the home. Five ensuite bedrooms with individual baths, large closets, hardwood flooring, and rooftop balconies round out the second floor, each offering their own sense of privacy. The opulent owner's suite with fireplace, boasts breathtaking views, extensive walk-in closet, and a luxurious, updated bathroom with dual vanities, tremendous walk-in shower, and soaking tub. Providing additional entertaining space, the walk-out lower level offers a second kitchen, wine cellar, recreation room with media space, game room and enormous, wet bar with seating for many. A graceful presentation of a remarkable residence. The ultimate in north shore lakefront living that truly needs to be experienced, to be believed.
