Built in 2000, this custom-built log home was made with 100 year-old White Pine logs from Ontario. The house itself is extraordinary, with ‘magazine quality’ interior design, and an abundance of features that are truly unique, including the 100+ year-old Main level interior doors recovered from a historic home in Buchanan, MI, and the limestone slab Kitchen counter tops, from a quarry in Wisconsin. The ceilings and floors are Douglas Fir, with the floor being varnished, and the ceiling whitewashed. The logs themselves are massive. With an average diameter of 24 inches, they are hand hewn and full Scandinavian scribed.
The main level features a massive stone wood-burning fireplace, in the Great Room, with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook an outdoor living area, and woods beyond. With its high-end appliances, the Kitchen offers a blend of unique and intimate, with modern and natural. Beyond the Kitchen is an Office, which overlooks the woods and the St. Joseph River. The main level also offers one of four bedrooms.
The extraordinary Master Suite is upstairs, featuring an open floor plan, a balcony, a stone shower in the Master Bath, and laundry facilities in the closet, which adds a touch of brilliant function in midst of the unique design of the entire upper level.
The lower level features a large Guest Room, that can also double as a second office, as well as a fourth bedroom, and another large living area, with its own stone fireplace.
The property also includes a large Guest Quarters, above the 3-car garage. This 1,500 square foot apartment offers a very comfortable one bedroom/one full-bath, including a large living space, full kitchen, and laundry facilities. Complete, with natural gas, forced air heat, and AC, this space is ideal for overnight guests and family.
The 3-car garage itself has radiant heat throughout, as well as a bathroom, making it very comfortable as a work area, and for storage.
