Sitting atop a bluff overlooking the big water of Lake Michigan just north of Manistee, this traditional, yet modern, lake home commands a spectacular view. Mature trees line the property keeping it private from the road, but the terraced hardscape with multi-level patios and stunning outdoor fireplace flow down to an expansive lawn which lures you down to the water’s edge. The nautical blue and white exterior with stone detail compliments the property without ever distracting from the natural setting.
Upon entering this 3700 sq ft home, you are greeted by an open floorplan with hickory floors traveling the main living area. The 10 foot ceilings, along with expansive transom windows gracing the entire lakeside of the house, give the home a spaciousness that is felt throughout. The custom built bookcases and fireplace surround lend an elegant old world touch to this modern relaxed home.
The dining room and kitchen have two-toned custom cabinetry with walnut butcher block accents. White cabinets with light Quartz countertops are accented with gorgeous blue tile work as the backsplash and as an impressive backdrop for the professional range. Just off this open airy kitchen is a pantry any chef would love. With butcher block counters, additional refrigerator and oven, and the microwave all easily accessible, this large workable area gives new meaning to the word storage. The main floor also has a powder room, an office which can be made private with a sliding fir barn door, along with an efficient mudroom that has a cubbie for everyone.
Upstairs there are three ensuite bedrooms all with impressive custom glass tile work, each bringing in the different shades of blue from the lake. Guests are invited to enjoy the bunk room suite with built in custom beds and dressers. A large whimsical laundry room with quartz countertops and extra storage finishes off the second floor.
Enjoy your tour!
