Tucked in a private woodland without another home in sight sits the perfect home for entertaining and for quiet contemplation. Enter through an 8 foot hand-carved cherry front door by Thomas and Milliken and feel the worries of the world fall away. This home exudes calm. Superior craftsmanship is immediately evident by the four 10' ebonized cherry tapered columns in the foyer. Felix Rice selected and set each stone of the fieldstone fireplace. The grand dining room stuns with a 14' vaulted ceiling, 2 chandeliers, and wall of windows that capture the light and bring in nature. The kitchen features a sleek wall of custom cherry cabinetry, hand-cut slate floors, and stainless steel countertops which are a chef's dream. Covered decking and Michigan Zen terrace with space for outdoor living, dining, and sunning runs alongside the main living area. Stone walls and solid cedar columns reveal the solidity of construction. Cherry woodwork is continued up the stairway and in the master suite where you can enjoy breathtaking winter sunsets. The master bath has dual vanities, a large ceramic tile walk-in shower with 5 showerheads, and a soaking tub with a view. The roomy bedrooms enjoy walk-in closets and a Jack and Jill bathroom with slate floors. The top floor gathering area for music, games, or reading also features a stage. Also offers a rec room/fitness room, guest suite, a private home office on its own floor, laundry room with chute, and mudroom convenient to the attached 2 car garage with bonus area for a sports car or boat. Unique spiral floor plan. Challenge yourself to fill the abundant storage, oversized closets, and butler's pantry. Drive mere minutes to the scenic heart of Leland and a short, serene commute to Traverse City. Land takes care of itself--where each Spring brings new volunteers, wild Orchids, Geraniums, Strawberries, Sweetpeas, and lots and lots of trees. Spaces galore to be alone and be together. Seamless indoor/outdoor flow in the Land of Delight.
