This luxury retreat is nestled in the trees on 10 beautiful acres of mature spruce and hardwoods in the picturesque resort community of Harbor Springs Michigan – often called the Aspen of the Midwest. It is the perfect vacation home....would be lovely for an intimate wedding gathering as well.
Located on a private 10-acre parcel, yet just a two-minute drive from downtown Harbor Springs, you'll enjoy the feeling of 'getting away from it all', while still being close to Lake Michigan, dining, shopping, boating etc. For skiing, Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are less than 10 minutes away.
Custom built by Richard Darnton/Darnton Builders, this 5,930 square foot log home has many beautiful artistic elements –a hand-crafted timber stairway with twig railings, pine wall paneling with custom milled edge detail, interior hewn beams salvaged from a local church, and a reading nook in the great room built from a hollowed-out tree trunk.
The gourmet kitchen featuring a Wolf range, Subzero refrigerator, large walk-in pantry and granite countertops is open to the cozy gathering room and takes advantage of woodland views and a spectacular stone fireplace. A large screened porch (also with a stunning stone fireplace), and expansive deck provide plenty of room to enjoy nature and the outdoors in this extraordinary northern Michigan setting just a few minutes from Lake Michigan.
The home is ideal for entertaining and family gatherings. Rooms are spacious and thoughtfully furnished. The great room has a twenty five foot high ceiling; the walk-out lower level features a game room and family room. And if you love sports, there also an indoor basketball/sports court!
The master suite is on the main floor and features two walk-in closets, a private deck and a large bathroom with tiled shower and double sinks. The bath area is designed for relaxing with a vintage tub set into a niche framed with hewn timbers. Three spacious bedrooms,full bath and a loft are located on the 2nd floor.
A personal office space just off the spacious foyer is the perfect place to work from home.
