This stunning historic home in downtown Traverse City offers extensive updates and state of the art interior design. Originally built as the Oak Park Branch Library, the elegant interior features high ceilings, cove moldings, hardwood floors, traditional gas fireplace, built-in bookcases from the original library and a new matching custom entertainment center. Huge windows fill the interior with natural light. The main floor offers two separate dining areas, a large private office with classic wainscoting, and a remodeled powder room. Access the chef's kitchen through French doors with features including white Woodmode cabinets, Corian counter tops, Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, and a convenient walk-in pantry. The walkout lower level offers a luxury master suite with large windows overlooking the lavishly landscaped private and fenced back yard, a second or guest bedroom, another luxury bath, laundry room, and ample storage. An addition completed in 2006 features a 13x28 custom indoor pool w/Badu Power Jet for swimming in place. Walk out from the pool to two patio areas offering a secluded retreat for sunbathing, and entertaining amidst hydrangeas, shrub roses, birch, and towering oaks. Timeless architecture, a private setting, and fabulous location all combine here in a truly exceptional property.
