11721 N Pa Be Shan Lane, Charlevoix, MI 49720
A stunningly unique four bedroom, 5.5 bath full-log home on 199’ of sandy Lake Michigan frontage. Each bedroom is en suite with its own fireplace. Don’t let the number of bedrooms fool you, this home comfortable sleeps a large family and all of their friends. Four wooded acres are lush with evergreens and mossy underfoot. This is a magical place from sunrise to sunset, spring to fall. The hushed woods are filled with woodland creatures (hence the deer-deterrent sprinkler system), and the changing sound of the lake in its varied rush to shore. Inside, the home is a work of engineering genius and pure artistic flair. The logs are huge and intricately structured; the windows are massive, including a house-long sky light, letting in more sun than the woods would otherwise allow, and throwing a kaleidoscope of light over the logs. There are eight fireplaces, each with salvaged architectural elements, which are also found elsewhere in the home – a confessional door in the master suite dressing room, leaded cabinet doors throughout the home retrieved from a Chicago industrial building, a cleverly disguised file cabinet, the living room light fixture salvaged from a Scottish castle. Highest-end details in a relaxed, inviting atmosphere. Approachably luxurious, this would be a perfect seasonal retreat or a full-time residence. Each bedroom has a fireplace, and the Great Room’s grand fireplace is two-sided, so the dining room has its own crackling hearth. Full-finished lower level with a game room and bar, media room, wine-tasting area and huge utility room with a workshop. There is a carriage-house style apartment over the garage, with a full kitchen, living room and cozy bedroom, as well as storage and extra sitting room, and of course a full bath. Additional 200’ of frontage is available.
