Luxury. You know it when you experience it. From the road, a private drive winds unobtrusively through a forest forever protected from development, and shared by just six others. You arrive to find an informal lake house nestled in the dunes on the shore of Lake Michigan—light filled, it captures the beauty of the outdoors from every room. Architecturally designed, casual and cozy this home combines the finest materials with time-honored craftsmanship and a sincere dedication to creating something unforgettable and beautiful.
Notable extras include arch shaped doorways, eight inch sidewalls and deep window sills; two natural stone fireplaces, true divided light windows, and custom millwork. A recent make over included new 50-year shingles, exterior and interior painting, new carpeting; a kitchen remodel with all new cabinetry, soapstone, Sub-Zero, Viking, Wolf, glass mosaics; new Geothermal heating and cooling and more. Here nature is at its best—the views of the Manitou Islands, Clay Cliffs, Pyramid Point and Fox Islands across the water. The sound of waves and the melodic rush of a flowing stream fill the air. Endless beach walks, brilliant sunsets, and starry nights.
Designed by Dave Hanawalt and built by Bob Biggs, this beautiful home has 3-bedrooms, a study adjacent to the master suite for extra sleeping space, a lake view loft over the great room, and 3.5 baths. With the improvements made, it’s like new. The subject property has 200 feet of sand beach and 1.36 acres. The sale also includes a 1/3 ownership interest in a 3.22-acre common area for the benefit of the three lake front owners. It is to remain wooded and natural but may be used for a replacement septic.
North of Leland, just a short drive to several wineries, villages and restaurants. This is truly the best on Lake Michigan. 6899 N Manitou Trail, Northport, MI
