Property Details

This fabulous, one-of&a-kind, Lake Michigan waterfront estate features 300 feet of sandy beach front, a main house, a guest-house, an art studio, and its own nature preserve with a boardwalk that connects to a charming Adirondack - style pavilion. Conveniently located within 5 miles of downtown Harbor Springs, in the private Association of Windemere, this 5+ acre retreat captures the essence and beauty of Northern Michigan. The unmatched quality and artistic beauty of the interior and exterior stone and wood work create a natural elegance rarely seen, even in Northern MI. The main house and guest house offer a total of 8 bedrooms, 5 full and 5 half baths, 9 custom field stone fireplaces, and water views galore! The main house enjoys a main floor master suite, kitchen, dining area, den, office, family room and covered wrap-around porches. The guest-house features a kitchen, living room, dining area and a stunning game room that connects to a theater room with a spectacular lighting and sound system. The decks are topped with a watch tower, while tucked away in a private corner is an outdoor field stone fountain and fireplace with stone seating. The art studio boasts a gleaming, bead board porte cochere, a spacious work/play space highlighted by a field stone fireplace and it features a half bath. The Pavilion has a rustic elegance, a great field stone fireplace, and a table that seats 12, built by Andre Poineau. Winding stone paths bordered by wild flowers, ferns, white birches, cedar and pine trees complete this lovely setting. This home has been featured in Veranda, Coastal Living, and Traverse Magazine and was built by Wentworth Builders and designed by Frederick C. Ball Architect, Landscape design by David Root, and Interior design by Kay Root. Please ask the listing agent for the features list and details.
