46880 Reeder Rd – REIMAGINED and REMASTERED, THIS STUNNING 8750 sqft LEGACY ESTATE ON ONE OF THE FINEST IN-LAND LAKES IN SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN FEATURES THREE BEDROOMS, SIX BATHS, A BUNK ROOM/LOFT, 3.24 ACRES, 221' FRONTAGE AND SOME REALLY COOL SPACES. What I love about it is its truly unique. It's unconventional. It's a special. With thoughtfully designed spaces for sleeping accommodations, entertaining and everyday living, you're gonna agree... This is no ordinary lake house.

The unassuming entry portico projects confident sophistication and promises that something spectacular lies just beyond the copper paneled barreled ceiling and double leaded glass doors. Without disappointing... the grand foyer is steeped in refinement and features a custom mosaic tile inlay, a lavish Kalco chandelier and Kalco wall sconces, a vaulted ceiling and the reveal to a majestic, floor-to-ceiling granite fireplace surround which defines the grandeur of the main living space.

The gourmet kitchen offers a full complement of top of the line appliances and beautiful surfaces, finishes and materials. Here you'll find the best of the best: Sub-Zero refrigeration, Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher, Viking Professional 6-burner gas range with griddle, double oven, down draft venting and warming drawer, a NEW, extraordinary, glass mosaic tile backsplash, a hammered steel sink, high-end granite, custom cabinetry and island with eat at counter. For larger gatherings, don't miss that the grand foyer is able to function as a service de buffet.

The informal and very cozy breakfast nook is a fantastic space for an intimate meal, and the very appealing dining area is ideal for hosting larger gatherings with family and friends. Seamlessly open to the kitchen and dining areas is the lake room with high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace with that floor to ceiling granite surround we mentioned earlier, and, of course, beautiful, captivating views of the lake and the expansive distant woodland backdrop. This is the perfect place to entertain, to sit with family and friends and to relax and do pretty much anything.

The primary, main level en-suite is truly spectacular. Located in the west wing of the home, this space is best described as enigmatic, intimate and comfortable. With gorgeous lake views taking center stage and with direct access to the 2300sf composite deck and out-door hot tub, this room is designed to capitalize on everything great about exceptional lake living. A bespoke etched glass and metal balustrade leading to a 2nd story loft, high ceilings and a wall of glass make this posh suite truly magical. No master bedroom en-suite would be complete without a walk-in shower and soaking tub. This one has both. A truly magnificent glass block shower room features a custom mosaic tile inlay and a large opaque window--The result is a practical but sensuous, spa-like feel. Custom cabinetry, dual walk-in-closets, a jetted soaking tub, high ceilings, elegant lighting fixtures and more than enough space to comfortably accommodate couples daily routines without friction... this master bathroom is something quite special.

So now we've toured the main floor, let's go upstairs and look at the multi-functional bunkroom/loft. This incredible space is really the ideal getaway for the littles to have their own sleeping quarters, and is complete with a half bath, a lounging area and plenty of space to romp and roll. Vaulted ceilings and two balconies make this a truly magical getaway for everyone, however. So when I said unconventional and special, I meant it. This palatial space could also be converted into two or three separate bedrooms with a lake-side lounge, perhaps a center kitchen, full bath and an office/study area (NOTE: Renovation ideas are subject to structural adaptability and relevant municipal approvals).

And now two floors down to the lower level walkout of the east wing... this is really the 'Entertainment Wing'. This area feels a little more separated from the rest of the home and its been created to deliver the ideal space for entertaining on a grand scale, or to offer a more intimate lounging and gaming are. Designed as an eclectic banquet room complete with a wet bar and heated floor, this area sets the stage for the whole entertaining experience and offers direct walkout access to the garden level terrace. Because this area also includes a full bath, it could also be transitioned into additional sleeping quarters. Just around the corner is one of two rooms designed to support tanning beds as well as a 665sf room of wall-to-wall, dense core rubber mats--this is the beginning of an amazing home gym. (NOTE: This room has been virtually staged and the wall mirrors do not exist in fact.)

And after all of that, there's only one thing left inside the home: The west wing lower level. With two additional sleeping quarters and an intimate family room with the second wood-burning fireplace, think of the lower level west wing as an escape and tranquil reprieve from everything and everyone. Both bedrooms and the family room have direct access to the 1000+ sf screened veranda and to the beautifully landscaped grounds. The main full bathroom features the second room for tanning, and the part I love the most... The sauna. Like I said... this place is truly unique and special.

And if the house wasn't enough to inspire and excite, the outdoor living spaces offered by this lakefront retreat are perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The freshly painted cedar shake exterior is absolutely stunning [2022] and the renovated landscape [2022], sandy beach with fire pit, pergola, enclosed gazebo, screened veranda and composite deck with new vinyl handrail [2022] all combine to offer more than enough space for personal and social activities.

This home is also features a Generac whole house generator and a 2800+ sf heated, metal pole barn with four overhead doors, separate office space and dedicated well. So if the attached three stall, 1400+ sf heated garage isn't accommodating enough, then you'll have plenty of space to store additional vehicles and watercraft.

Christie Lake is spring fed, all sports, 211 acres in size and is known for her water quality. It is located in Lawrence Township, a short distance from I-94, and apx 2hrs from Chicago, 60 minutes from Notre Dame, 90 minutes from Grand Rapids, 30 minutes to Kalamazoo and apx 40 minutes to the Lake Michigan resort town of South Haven. An important feature of Christie Lake is that it's private--There is no public access. This limits boat traffic and helps to keep the lake healthier.

With a home of this caliber set on this amount of acreage and frontage on a beautiful, pristine lake in Southwest Michigan, we discover why the appetite for luxury real estate is far from diminished. Expect a better lake house. This is no ordinary lake house. Make the right move. www.46880ReederRd.com.
