Escape to the magic of Leelanau in one of the county's most artisan crafted homes. Custom details by local expert makers fill this premier place, crafted with hand hewn pine logs, chinking, fine masonry work of natural stone, slate, Australian cypress, and solid cherry wood details. Dream exclusivity with private drive winding to home perched on large secluded hill presenting stunning panoramic views of the 165+ acre property (open meadows, woods, streams) and miles beyond of natural beauty. The observation turret provides even more scenic experiences: distant views of Lake Michigan, Manitou Islands and Sugar Loaf Mountain; This castle-like tower is also perfect as a reading or mindfulness space. A number of rooms to entertain in: open kitchen/dining/breakfast nook (with Viking and Subzero appliances), billiards room (featuring a wet bar), home theatre (carpeted wall paneling), indoor swimming pool room (with massive windows and access to outside), great room (boasting exposed beams and built-ins). The extravagant architecture and materials are visually appealing, but also provide comfort of modern niceties: Couples walk-in closets (other two bedrooms also feature walk-in closets), couples separate master baths (including steam shower and oversized soaking tub), full guest suite (kitchen/dining, bath, bed, living), massive pantry (custom cabinetry and rolling ladder), main level living, and sauna. Two-story log barn with private paddock. Built with energy consciousness, this home features solar panels, solar water heat (radiates floors too), wind turbine (renewable energy) and drought resistant landscaping (water conservation). Cost and energy savings! Minutes from sandy beaches, hiking, restaurants--and not far from Traverse City's attractions and amenities. This property has endless possibilities: sustainable agriculture for farming enthusiasts, destination event (wedding, corporate) venue, retreats (artist, writing, yoga), vineyard with estate chateau, + more!
