Leelanau Residence


Lake Leelanau, Michigan

Up North at its finest! Along the shores of Lake Leelanau this vacation house is complete with wrap around porches, private hot tub terrace overlooking the water and a hidden historical boat house for the owner s collectable wooden speed boats.

The wrap around porch is interrupted by a carefully detailed screen porch perfectly positioned for that sunset view in the evening. The wood detailing of this porch is intended to recall an age now past; Quiet contemplation with a natural setting, while gathered around the wood fire.

Every room is designed to have a view toward the water while being discreetly planned for privacy along the sides. This home also features locally available stone and wood materials (which are part of the historical vernacular of lakefront cottages in this area), making it perfectly nestled into its surroundings.

From the Judges
The exterior of the home features smart design choices, including a boat house that goes away from the home with outdoor space on top and a curved outdoor porch with heaters built into ceiling for a seamless look. The creative detailing on the siding adds interest as well.
