Amazing Northern Michigan Homes: Home & Vineyard on Grand Traverse Bay

For this week’s Amazing Northern Michigan Homes, Whitney Amann and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson take you to a beautiful home on West Bay in Leelanau County that has a wonderful view of water and wine grapes.

It’s your own personal stop along the Leelanau Wine Trail.

This beautiful home comes with the appropriately named “chardonnay shores vineyard” that is completely irrigated and has over 1,400 established chardonnay vines producing tons of fruit for some of the local wineries.

The four bed, three and a half bath home is three floors and has a “Mackinac Island design”. “There’s approximately 3,400 square feet and the main floor has the master with the master bath, fireplaces,” said Misty Franklin, realtor for Mark Hagan Real Estate professionals. “The lower level is completely finished with bedrooms, full bath and sitting room with also a fireplace.”

On the third floor you will find some more sleeping areas and a large work space.

Back on the main floor is the formal dining room and a high end kitchen to prepare your meals.

“In the kitchen, you have upper end, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a slider going out to a beautiful deck,” she said.

The best way to spend those beautiful, Northern Michigan, summer days is by making your way down the stairway to your 250 feet of frontage on West Grand Traverse Bay.

At the end of the day, you can pour yourself a glass of wine made from your very own vineyard and the next morning, grab a cup of coffee to enjoy the incredible sunrise.

“We’re elevated to capture all of the views of the water,” said Franklin. “You can see forever, you’re perched up here, it to maximize all of the views throughout the house.”
