It's time to experience "the Captain's House"...a Kenilworth exclusive treasure set above the sailing beach with private access to sail your summer away. Celebrated by the same family for over 50 years, this coastal cedar shake & stone beauty shines bright with lake views from every room in this home. Built to stand the test of time including a 3rd floor "lookout" with sweeping panoramic views of Lake Michigan to see the most beautiful sunrises. Expansive first floor with arched doors, oversized bay windows, and grand rooms allowing the outdoors to be the centerfold of this living experience. Handsome office nooked off the front foyer entrance with custom built-ins reveals the historical essence of this house. Expansive Great room with gleaming sawn oak floors & stately limestone FP leads to the formal dining room with another stone FP. Light and airy dining room showcasing the views of the lake so beautifully with a large bay window & matching custom window seat. It's time for nighttime cocktails with cool breezes from the veranda down to the entertaining bluestone patio. Gourmet chef's kitchen by Paul Konstant is the anchor of this floor with a separate breakfast room perfect for early morning coffee to watch the boats sail by. Butler's pantry with old-school cabinetry reminds you that this house must have many stories to tell. 2 sets of staircases to the second level, each outfitted with great windows allowing the light to flood in. 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the 2nd level, beautiful master suite with the best views in the house. 3 additional family size bedrooms one with access to an outside deck to raise the flag. Awesome 3rd level with the Captain's look-out room featuring nautical wallpaper, a built-in desk, a full bath & two bedrooms. Incredible storage in the lower level, laundry room & bathroom. Gorgeous grounds & mature landscape outline the lake views so perfectly. An entertainer's dream with a grilling patio and additional patio that perches right above the lake for separate occasions. Just steps to the sailing beach down the romantic windy pathway with a boathouse for all your water toys. Step on to the sandy shore and launch your paddle or sailboat as there is no better place on the lake. Uniquely positioned, this home has all the conveniences of being on the lake with none of the expense - as the village of Kenilworth takes care of this beach with a modest tax number to match. The best of lakefront living...waking up to lake views with none of the lake maintenance worries! It's time to live well and enjoy the finer things of life as you will be reminded the second you see the views and feel the thrill and serenity of lake living.
