Stunning large 4200 square foot executive lakefront log home sits on over 1 acre of heavily wooded land. Located 1/2 mile off scenic Rt. 22, down a winding lane, which opens to a private retreat with panoramic 180 degree views of all sport Big Platte Lake. The property is directly adjacent to the southern aspect of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, voted 'Most Beautiful Place in America' in 2011 by Good Morning America.
Upon entering the foyer, one will be immediately struck by the view into and 'through' the great room as soaring 30 foot floor to ceiling windows bring the outdoors in, and provide unparalleled views of the lake.
Ideally suited for large families or get-togethers, the property boasts 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. There are 2 master suites on the first floor with King beds and down comforters, with one having a steam sauna, shower, whirlpool tub, while the other has its own full bathroom. The first floor great room has ample comfortable seating with 60' flat screen TV and Bose sound system. Dining area seats 8.
The upstairs includes 3 large bedrooms. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a king bed, while the other 2 bedrooms each have 2 twin beds. The upstairs loft area has a Queen sleeper sofa. In addition, there is an upstairs 'bonus room' with futon and large flat screen TV. Poker/gaming table with a breathtaking view of the lake completes the upstairs.
The property sits on over 100 feet of direct lake frontage, with a hammock gently swaying between cedar trees. There is a very large wraparound deck with grill and numerous lounge chairs, for casually taking in the stunning Northern Michigan scenery. Bald Eagles, Wild Turkeys, Deer, Flying Squirrels, and Great Blue Herons are frequent visitors. Platte lake is incredibly clear and generally calm, perfect for swimming, boating, and fishing. The property is also located approximately 150 yards from the Platte River, where one can enjoy a real 'lazy river' ride. The Sleeping Bear Dunes 'Dune Climb' is a 10 minute drive to the north, while Crystal Mountain Resort is 15 minutes to the south. Numerous outstanding restaurants are also nearby. There are too many other attractions to list here, but we will gladly provide further information upon inquiry. Just ask.
