Welcome to a nature lover's paradise. Truly a masterpiece of timeless design, typical of architect Balfour Lanza, dramatic spaces that live like pieces of art, seamlessly integrating natural beauty, bringing all that is outside in! A complete kitchen renovation in 2004 by Jeff Lynch incorporates natural materials that complement the enduring design, framing prairie gardens while offering seasonal glimpses of a sunrise over Lake Michigan. Top of the line Thermador ovens and gas range, 2 Miele dishwashers, 2 stainless sinks and garbage disposals, beverage center, and a Subzero will please the most discerning gourmet. The breakfast room is adjacent to the dining room making it ideal for large family gatherings, or use as a sitting room should one choose to do so. A mud room and large craft room compliment each other for laundry and mudroom overflow. The 1st floor entry offers a distinctive and versatile living space that is perfect for a baby grand piano and is inspiring in all seasons, encompassed by floor-to-ceiling windows. A cozy LIVING room is the place to LIVE in this home with an adjacent library/card room and large gas-start fireplace. Two bedrooms and a bath complete this floor, one with a Murphy bed allowing for a flexible conversion to a yoga studio with a large exterior yoga patio. The second-floor primary bedroom has a recently renovated Orren Pickell bath, 3 walk-in closets, and a balcony that is perfect for star-gazing or morning coffee while listening to the waves crashing on nearby Lake Michigan. Adjacent to the primary bedroom is a well appointed office, with privacy, built-ins and beautiful views to the southwest. A private 4th bedroom has an ensuite 3rd bath completes this floor. Enjoy the finished lower level with 2 ample storage rooms and a mechanical room with 3-zone HVAC. The outdoor space is as inviting as the indoor, with a spacious deck and boardwalk encircling the property and providing access to a free-standing, heated and cooled "gazebo" that is perfect as a home office, artist's studio, or enchanting all-season retreat. The pathway continues to the deeded access to Lake Michigan and a private beach shared by contiguous neighbors. New cedar shake roof in 2015 with cedar preservation treatment in 2022. The 2.5 car garage enjoys a heated, locked workshop with skylight. This home has been meticulously maintained and includes an outdoor sprinkler system, security system, and plenty of outdoor lighting. This combination of a premier neighborhood location, privacy, and home design are uncompromising. Welcome home!
