The Beach House at Storm Hill is tucked into a breathtaking wooded acre-plus with 153 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline in the still relatively quiet and undiscovered village of Empire on the Leelanau Peninsula. Perched on a small dune, just a stone’s throw from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and its miles of preserved silken beaches, this 7,000-square-foot, five bedroom, five and a half bath home was built with family, comfort and serenity in mind. Timeless design elements, including barreled beadboard ceilings, mahogany trim and expansive field stone walls and fireplaces, are familiar and welcoming, while the craftsmanship and exacting standards of execution are immediately evident. The home is large but not overbearing, elegant but not ostentatious, and possesses a thoughtful blend of intimate spaces and inviting gathering places. Favorite spots include the private master suite with its attached library, and the large, screened porch that is graced by a magnificent stone fireplace—the perfect spot for morning coffee or toasting marshmallows with the little ones at sunset. This is a home to gather in, to escape to and relax in… to always return to.
