This is Clearwater Builders’ first home built in Michigan and first feature in the HBA of the Grand Traverse Area Parade of Homes. With 20 years building experience in Idaho and North Dakota, choosing a location for our first build in Northern Michigan was an important decision for us. We believe we chose a great spot, located in the beautiful woods behind Long Lake. With mature hardwoods surrounding every window view of the home, you get a perfect all-season view. Leading up to the front entrance is a custom built-in cedar deck porch with copper accents and tongue and groove ceiling. The main entrance features a beautiful 16-foot high barrel arch ceiling finished with gorgeous tongue and groove boards. The main living area showplaces a granite stone gas-lit fireplace with 12-foot custom built-in shelving on each side.

The kitchen has a coffered wood ceiling with a custom two-step crown molding finish. The cabinets are solid maple with top and bottom crown molding, finished above and below with LED accent lighting. The countertops are Cambria Summerhill quartz finished with ledgestone backsplash.  This kitchen features a corner pantry with an etched glass door. The kitchen island has a raised breakfast bar for optimal hosting space.  The final sweet touch is a built-in wine bar located beside.

The home’s master bedroom includes a 9-foot, lighted coffered ceiling with a glass chandelier. The walls in the master are complete with wainscoting. The master bathroom has heated porcelain tile flooring. His and Hers sinks with custom-built cabinets and Cambria Summerhill quartz countertops make the room a must-see. The bathroom features a jacuzzi tub with a separate walk-in glass shower that features a rain head and handheld shower heads. Both tub and shower have dull tile with blue stone mosaic accents.

The walk-in master closet features floor-to-ceiling custom built-in cubbies and hanging space. The guest bathroom also features heated porcelain tile and custom wainscoting with mosaic accents. Other interior finishes of the entire home include a hand-textured finish on walls and custom trim accents throughout every room. The home is also equipped for smart living with Bluetooth speaker exhaust fans installed in the master and guest bathrooms. The entire home gives a warm nautical vibe that complements our beautiful natural water area – a sense that Clearwater Builders wanted to incorporate into our first Northern Michigan built home. We are excited to move forward with more custom-built homes in our region. Clearwater Builders are now accepting new clients.
