This enigmatic, hidden treasure on Springwood Lake, located in Oshtemo Township, features 170'+ lake frontage, stunning lake views and over 1.5 acres of dense vegetation, a lush green lawn, an abundance of wildlife, beautiful gardens and a providential natural habitat. An UNEXPECTEDLY PRIVATE sanctuary off the well-traveled M-43/W. Main corridor consistently excites and amazes the moment guests pass the mature canopied entranced. If you're looking for something TRULY UNIQUE, this perfectly serene and delightful getaway is it! The 425sf lake-side terrace is ideal for lounging and entertaining and the 270sf deck off the primary suite includes a hot tub and outdoor shower for private moments. MESMERIZED by large open spaces, the expansive lake room and adjacent dining room feature a 17' vaulted ceiling with skylights and large windows and doors that fill the home with an infectious, energetic display of natural light--you can't help but smile when you're in this space. And with the addition of a gas log fireplace in the lake room for cold autumn and winter nights, this home is truly romantic. With a minimalistic style and iconic relaxed appeal, this home has both midcentury modern and coastal influence. I think the charm of this house is the natural, organic feel of the interior and how it effortlessly incorporates the expansive lake views and the exterior elements of the outdoor living spaces. The main level also includes the primary en-suite with large, open walk-in-closet and French doors both entering the room and exiting the room to the private deck; the galley kitchen; laundry; powder room and mechanical room. With lofty expectations that don't disappoint, the second floor is introduced by an open family room loft with a spectacular panoramic view of the main floor and beautiful views of the great outdoors. Three additional bedrooms, the second full bath, a very unique 'hobby closet' and an incredible storage area make for well-equipped addition to this thoughtfully designed home. Pay close attention to the amazing opportunity that the second storage room offers... With a few modifications, about half of this space could potentially be added to the adjacent bedroom and half could be retained for storage with drop-down-ladder access from the garage and/or access from the home.
