Beautifully decorated and maintained, this custom-designed 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom ranch home is nestled on 12.5 wooded acres with 778' private frontage on the pristine Boardman River. Expansive decks make the home an ideal place to relax and entertain. Adventurers can take a leisurely float down the Boardman, hike its manicured paths, catching glimpses of white swans and eagles, or join other anglers on this blue-ribbon trout stream. The house is just minutes from year-round enjoyment: Traverse City's many local wineries, microbreweries, restaurants, shops, annual cherry and movie festivals, as well as exhibits and performances at Interlochen and Northwestern are world-class. Extensively remodeled in 2004, this open-concept, vaulted-ceilinged home will delight the most discerning decorator, home chef, and host with its main floor gourmet kitchen (custom cherry wood cabinets, limestone counters, Wolf stove top, double ovens, SubZero refrigerator, SubZero wine storage, walk-in pantry, and seating for 10), dining and living room with fireplace, guest bedroom and bathroom, and generous master suite all overlooking the river. Double sets of sliding glass doors open onto a newly installed ipe-wood deck, ideal for lounging, grilling, and dining. The lower level features a large, walk-out family room, two bedrooms, and full bathroom as well as a large, cedar-lined storage closet. In addition to the attached garage, this riverfront retreat offers a 2-car detached garage with a high-end, completely private knotty-pine artist's or fly-tying studio: bedroom/office, bathroom, comfortable sitting area, break room with large sink for pottery or baskets, and extensive walk-out deck.
