Lake Michigan, Leland

Perched on a beautiful sandy beach, this is another home whose design takes full advantage of its breathtaking water views. And in spite of its size – 4645 square feet – it retains a cottage look and feel, with wide-plank knotty-pine flooring throughout, painted cabinets in the kitchen, many rooms with knotty-pine tongue-and-groove paneling on the walls, and two split-stone fireplaces. The vaulted ceiling in the living room features hand-hewn exposed ridge-and-rafter beams, and the large custom kitchen has a wood ceiling. Even the bathroom designs follow the cottage theme. Professional decorating ensures that the interior design echoes the up-north vacation mood that the owners wanted to create for this warm and inviting residence.
