This remarkable home’s location at the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula may set it farther afield, but that’s part of its magnetic appeal. Take a gorgeous drive up M-22 to Northport, a charming bayside village that blends old-fashioned charm with many new businesses in its vibrant downtown and nature just steps away. Spend time shopping, dining, and exploring after you tour this head-turner on Fifth Street.
CMB Construction built this custom design for a work-from-home family with a love of the outdoors. The homeowners and their architects brought a bold, modern sense of style to the project, resulting in a house that perfectly fits the family’s needs and taste. The crisp, white, gabled house is defined with black accents and warm knotty cedar for a look that’s modern but approachable, drawing on Northern Michigan traditions while still looking current and original.
Every detail was customized to express a minimal, Scandinavian-influenced aesthetic on the tight in-town lot. You’ll see unusual features like a fully tiled “wet room” bath, polished concrete flooring, sleek maple built-ins, a bayview office perch, a separate workshop and art studio, and a backyard sauna. The homeowners mixed both high-end and budget-friendly materials for a look that’s undeniably fresh, fun, and chic. This is the house you don’t want to miss!
