In the late 1920's, architect Charles Whitney Stevens designed this exceptional residence at 151 Sheridan Road, located on 118 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline, using the finest exterior building materials available from the stone facades to leaded glass windows to copper gutters/downspouts and Ludowici roof tiles. Situated on 1.5 acres, the 350 foot approach to the home is a winding aggregate concrete driveway along a manicured front yard that terminates with a circular drive at a front door through which you can see the lake. The entrance is enchanting. The architectural significance of this Jacobethan Revival style was recognized by the National Park Service and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in March 2006. This prestigious honor was achieved because of the efforts by owners for nearly 100 years to maintain and preserve the essential exterior elements in pristine condition. The forward-thinking Stevens also designed an interior that too stands the test of time taking full advantage of coveted lakefront living. The stunning two-story gallery with marble floor leading to French doors and a blue stone terrace and the expansive lakeside yard is breathtaking. The wood paneled living room with wood burning fireplace and 12 foot ceilings is bathed in light and the banquet sized dining room with marble floors and French doors to screened porch is ideal for entertaining. Beyond these formal spaces that showcase the high-style interior decoration from the 1920s, this is a home that is practically designed for today's lifestyle. The attached/heated three car garage leads to a nice white kitchen with big butler's pantry & breakfast room for everyday living. The second floor with dual stair/elevator service sports six bedrooms (all with hardwood floors under carpet), four full bathrooms, a den and sitting room, most with east facing windows capturing sunrises and lake views. The basement also with dual stair/elevator service features a family room with fireplace, exercise room, full bathroom with steam shower, laundry, and tons of storage. A 1600 square foot walk up unfinished attic awaits. The sprawling lakeside yard leading to a fortified bluff and gentle stairs to Lake Michigan brings you to the shoreline where beaches come and go with the tides but built in a manner to provide easy access to the water for swimming while protecting the integrity of the shoreline. There are few lakefront properties along the North Shore that compare. So when you combine a 1.5 acre parcel running from Sheridan Road to Lake Michigan, a home that enjoys national recognition as an architectural gem, an interior with space, style and practicality and a lakefront setting you have more than a residence but a treasured retreat.
