If you buy this huge estate that sits on 2.95 acres overlooking Michigan’s Torch Lake (one of the world’s most beautiful lakes), you will have water views from almost every window and a gated entry to welcome them home after a day out and about.
Located on Torch Lake’s Sand Point in the city of Kewadin, Michigan, this home was built in 2016 and offers 1,100 feet of water frontage with stone patios, private decking and your very own park. There’s also a sandy beach, stone retaining walls and docks.
The home is 9,600 square feet and features a chef’s kitchen with Carrera marble countertops, backsplash, island and prep kitchen/pantry adjoining, a Wolf range, double oven, two dishwashers and Subzero refrigerator.
The first floor master wing has marble flooring in the bath, a walk-in closet and wet bar. In total, there are 5 bedrooms, all en-suite; and two extra half baths. Imported marble flooring and toilets can be found in seven bathrooms.
The main level flooring is rift and quartered white oak with in-floor heating.
Homeowners can spend cold winter evenings relaxing in front of one of 5 fireplaces throughout the home, which also has an elevator.
The original home on this property was built in 1965. It sold on June 12, 2012 for $2.2 million dollars. The new owners bulldozed the home and built a brand new estate.

About TORCH LAKE (Michigan’s finest)
Once upon a time, Northern Michigan’s Torch Lake had a great 4th of July boat party all weekend long at the Torch Lake Sandbar.
Torch Lake is about 40 minutes east of Traverse City, which is the nearest big city.
Torch Lake is one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in the world.
The water is so clear its like looking through plate glass.
Torch Lake is legendary for its Sandbar, which is shallow enough for people to walk around at.
Torch Lake is Michigan’s deepest (max depth 285 feet deep!!!) and longest inland lake.
It is also Michigan’s 2nd largest inland lake. Houghton Lake is the largest and Lake Charlevoix is the 3rd largest.
The lake is 19 miles long, 330-feet deep in the center and 2.35 miles wide.
Indians used to fish for whitefish by birch-bark torch, hence the name “Torch Lake”.
