This property is the finest family compound I've seen in a lifetime of selling unique waterfront homes! There's lots of room for family and friends... or a quiet weekend getaway for two. The main home has 4,700 SF, five bedrooms, and 4.5 baths with geothermal heating, central air, and the Internet. The Coach House has a to-die-for apartment which doubles as a perfect office retreat for remote work duties. The Guest House has three bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Local craftsmen built it all with quality that rivals the best in Detroit or Chicago. All are offered exquisitely furnished, except for art and antiques. The total is 8,093 SF with nine bedrooms, eight full baths, and two half baths. The land includes 2,500 feet on Lake Michigan's Big Bay de Noc, and 76 acres of hardwoods and privacy. There are tennis and pickleball courts and two docks with lifts for the pontoon and ski boat. An 18-hole public golf course is just around the corner. The Garden Peninsula is 20 miles long with stunning rocky cliffs, surrounded by Lake Michigan's crystal clear waters. Geologically, Wisconsin's Door Peninsula and Garden Peninsula may have connected long ago and today share the Niagara Escarpment that runs through the property. Garden Peninsula has avoided the development associated with Door Country and northern Michigan. Privacy is the feature here, with no car traffic, no boat traffic, no crowds or summer surge of people, no noise, and no neighbors within earshot. There are miles of undeveloped shoreline, great fishing, abundant peace, quiet, and incredible sunsets over the bay. Days are filled on the water, roaming the woods, reading a book, visiting with family and friends, and getting away from the busyness of the rest of your life. Being on the quiet bay side of the peninsula allows docks on the property, boats on lifts, and water that warms up nicely for swimming. A sense of peace and calm settles over you. It's your place to relax, unwind, and explore.
