This custom log-sided home offers privacy & space on a 3.88 acre elevated setting. With premium details and a touch of Up North decor, you will appreciate it as either a vacation retreat or full-time home, conveniently located just south of Alden near spectacular Torch Lake. The covered porch offers a space to enjoy the stunning sunsets, and an expansive deck provides a quiet spot for a morning coffee at sunrise, or evening cook out. Enjoy one floor living w/the kitchen, master suite, office, living room, laundry & sunroom on the main floor. Your guests will enjoy space upstairs with two bedrooms, bath and two lounge areas on the loft. Over 2200 sq ft in the walkout lower level is waiting your ideas, as additional living space. The island kitchen includes plenty of storage, tile backsplash, and a wall oven, dishwasher & vent hood that are less than 2 years old. Open to both sunroom and living room, you can prepare meals, while socializing with family and friends. If you work from home, an office is just off the foyer with lovely sunset views. The 2 story stone fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room, as well as a functional heat source. The wood bin can be loaded from outside, so you don't have to carry the wood through the house. The master suite enjoys private views of the woods and rolling landscape, & the ensuite bath is complete with double sinks, water closet, and glass block shower with double shower heads. The expansive walk-in closet enjoys natural light and convenient built-in dressers. A large laundry includes an ironing station and cabinets. You won't have to park outside with the spacious 3-car garage, and you'll appreciate an irrigation system, with drip lines in the beds. To top it all off, you will have the ultimate of peace of mind with a whole house automatic generator. All this is just moments from Torch Lake, and nearby ski and golf resorts, trails and year-round recreation.
