By Ross Boissoneau | Sept. 23, 2022

Leelanau County? Check. Stunning setting? Check. Near Traverse City? Just eight miles away, so check. Beautiful inside and out, ready for the whole family? Oh yeah, that’s a check all right.

This craftsman-style home (10484 S Leelanau Way, Traverse City; $1,850,000) boasts hardwood floors, a custom kitchen with the =de rigeur= high-end appliances, a massive stone fireplace in the living room, and a light-filled main suite with sitting area and Juliette balcony. From the expansive covered front porch, enjoy views of Lake Leelanau and the rolling, wooded acreage. What, you say the four bedrooms and three bathrooms aren’t enough for the whole tribe? Not to worry – there’s also a hand-crafted guest cabin and a custom studio building. The former offers a serene retreat with a cedar interior, exterior and deck, while the studio includes an insulated additional garage, exercise/playroom with infrared sauna and cork floors, living space and an additional bedroom and bath. Don’t forget the greenhouse, potting shed, raised garden beds, and the outstanding landscaping, with rockwork and beautiful native perennials. Over 5,100 total square feet on 15 acres, plus access to a large shared beach on Lake Leelanau with a swimming area, beach house, and boat docks.
