This stunning beachfront masterpiece on the shores of East Bay on Old Mission Peninsula - just 8 miles from downtown Traverse City - is now offered for sale by the original owners. Designed by an award-winning Seattle architect, this captivating modern home elicits feelings of awe as soon as you step through the door. The intentional interplay of light, space & glass creates a feeling of one-ness with the beautiful exterior, bringing the outside in through each spectacular season. Panoramic water views wow from every room, including the primary bedroom suite which includes a spacious dressing room. An open staircase reveals the open-concept kitchen, dining, & living room with a wall of 11 tall floor-to-ceiling glass windows running the length of the entire space. The gourmet kitchen is made to entertain with floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry and a 14.5 long island. The dining & living room provide ample space for hosting & lounging, while a separate family room off of the other side of the kitchen provides a quieter space for reading or watching television. The resort-like outdoor spaces become an extension of the interior spaces; two sliding glass doors open to a 90 deck that runs the length of the house, a stunning setting for sun bathing or al fresco dining. Step off the deck right onto the sandy beach and into the water. No retaining walls, no stairs down to the water just dune grass, sand and water. An outdoor shower provides a fun, easy spot to rinse before heading back inside. The deep water here is ideal for boating. This listing is for both the house (11596 Bluff Rd) AND an independent yet adjoining vacant lot (11649 Willow Point Dr). Both the house and the vacant lot have their own private frontage for a combined 191' of continuous, private frontage. The vacant lot is part of the Woods of Willow Point development and therefore includes access to the 320 shared neighborhood beach, in addition to the private frontage. Lot is mostly flat & buildable.
