Gorgeous chalet-style home on Crystal Lake in Benzie County brings Aspen or Vail to mind. Beautiful evergreens frame this wood-sided contemporary home situated to best take advantage of the mesmerizing, south-facing lake views. 106 feet of private sandy beachfront is yours to enjoy exclusively on the turquoise waters of this all sports lake renowned for boating, sailing, swimming and BIG fishing. Step inside this light-filled home with cathedral and vaulted ceilings and windows in four directions. Main floor includes living room, dining area, kitchen, laundry, large bedroom and a private location for the full bath. Second story includes a TV room/den, two bedrooms and a full bath. A half bath in the one-stall detached garage serves the “bonus” room above it for living and sleeping. Throughout the house, combination wood and painted walls, wooden ceiling beams, and white ceilings please both cabin lovers and those who prefer a modern ambiance. A fieldstone hearth rises toward the soaring ceiling in the living room with a second-story window, slider to the lakeside deck, door to the screened-in porch, and access to a raised dining area with its own lake views and skylight. A stunning white and light-gray kitchen includes storage in the breakfast bar, built-in curved corner shelving, recessed lighting and plenty of counter space. The screened-in porch is pure Northern Michigan with wooden lap siding, vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan, multiple skylights and evergreen-scented air. Air circulation inside the home is provided by ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms. There is a lakeside storage shed for the toys and sandy beachgoers can rinse off at the outside shower and the garage bathroom is very convenient. Close to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park trails and beaches on Lake Michigan and approx. 3 miles to Beulah shops and dining. Best of both worlds!
