Once in a lifetime, a legendary home becomes available that has a captivating and lasting effect on its owners. Built in 1967, this custom colonial was designed by Richard B Pollman and has only had 3 owners in over 50 years. Offering a beautiful western view of West Bay and a shared beach, the two-story home is tucked in a cul-de-sac in a private wooded setting at the base of the peninsula just 5 minutes from downtown Traverse City. Impeccably maintained and designed with careful detailing, this home features a bright and light layout with solid wood oak floors, 2 living rooms each with a fireplace, a finished basement, beamed ceilings, and the flavor of a mid-18th century Connecticut farm-house. The main floor boasts a spacious kitchen with brand new appliances, corian countertops, and a sunroom overlooking the beautiful grounds. The kitchen is the center of the house -- you doorway flows into the formal dining room and living room while the other direction leads you to the spacious family room. French doors in the family room lead you to a back yard paradise with a large deck, beautiful matured landscaping, irrigation, and sprawling on 0.60 acre yard overlooking the bay. The finished lower level offers a large recreationroom with built-ins as well as two storage rooms. The upper level boasts 5 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Yes, 5 bedrooms upstairs! The master suite features a newly updated bath, walk-in closets and a bay window to take in the views right from your bed. Don't miss the 4-car 46'x24' garage for additional storage and projects! The highly desirable Franklin Woods neighborhood offers 80' of shared frontage for your friends and family to enjoy swimming, kayaking, and paddle-boarding just steps from your front door.
