Spectacular 46-acre estate with 135 feet of private Lake Michigan water frontage and endless West Michigan sunsets. Luxury and quality abound in this custom built 7 bedroom, 7 full and 2 half bathroom home, which includes two fully self-contained apartments, providing perfect, private guest retreats. Unrivaled construction quality defines the home, with reclaimed Jarrah wood from Australia, metal roofing, and high-end materials throughout. Open floor plan combined with traditional spaces makes for an inviting and warm feel, while the kitchen acts as the heart of the home, with comfortable gathering spaces, a Chef worthy kitchen featuring high end appliances, and provides ample space for taking in the incredible natural light from the large windows. The lakeside screened-in porch with pot belly stove makes for the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing afternoon listening to the waves lap the beach, or meander your way out to the large slate front porch and take in the lake views. Main floor guest/primary suite is positioned for optimal privacy, and is finished with a dramatic custom ceiling, built-ins, and custom bath with solid surface throughout. Upstairs in the main home you will find two of the guest bedrooms with their own private decks, and a primary suite that is nothing short of a luxurious sanctuary. Large bathroom complete with radiant heat floors, solid surfaces, walk-in closet with custom storage, and views of the water. The upstairs primary suite also features two decks on the lakeside, one of them accessed via the secret door and acts as the owl's nest, providing maximum views from the highest point on the home. While up there, enjoy the private daybed relaxation room, ideal for a moment alone with a good book. Lower level is finished with a rec room, workout space, and unfinished area that could easily be converted to a theater room. The outdoor space of this home is like nothing you have ever seen. Descend the stone staircase from the patio into an oasis-like, perfectly manicured backyard, the likes of which are only found at the finest resorts. Inground pool and spa, along with large deck area provide a space that will ensure decades of summertime fun and memories at the lake. The 40 acres to the east may be split for future development possibilities, and still offer privacy for the home and remaining 6 acres. 3 stall heated garage, separate bicycle garage, whole house generator, central vacuum, and top-grade mechanicals are just some of the additional fine features you will find in this once in a lifetime opportunity ideally located near Saugatuck, Douglas, and Fennville.
