This lovely Victorian home overlooking Lake Huron, was built in 1887, the same year as the Grand Hotel! In 1997 the home went through a complete renovation, which included a new foundation. Bedour Construction helped complete the renovations on this 5-bedroom, 5 bathroom home. The walnut woodwork was constructed on site and is comprised of original hand-carved trim, walnut flooring and cabinetry. Steven Seebohm, an architectural painter, oversaw the exquisite hand painting of the ceilings in 4 of the 5 bathrooms, kitchen and dining room. The homes furnishings include 2 Lotton crystal chandeliers, collections of high-quality Victorian furniture and lighting. This superior decoration also contains handloom silk and wool rugs from Iran and India that have been collected throughout the past 30 years. You will find Pratt & Larson hand-painted tiles throughout the bathrooms and gorgeous granite counter tops in the kitchen. In addition to granite countertops the kitchen also holds a stain glassed dome giving off soft, muted lighting, perfect for any time of day. The home comes complete with its own library. The library holds a rare Huntzinger table, unique gold leafing on the ceiling and classic canvas paintings throughout. There are 5 gas fireplaces throughout the house, including the living room which also displays a 8.5 ft x 5 ft stained glass panel.Outside and around the home you can relax and enjoy Northern Michigan on the 3 porches, which are complete with bronze light fixtures, mahogany railings and rot proof iron wood steps. You and your guests can explore the 2 ponds, guest homes and basketball court found on the property while still enjoying privacy provided by the naturally landscaped barriers. The carriage house, now a finished guest house, is a perfect place for your family and friends to come and stay when they are up north. The guest home displays hand-hewn white oak barn beams, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, laundry, air conditioning and a gas fireplace!
