Abstract: A luxurious 14,636 square foot lakefront home in Petoskey, Michigan has entered the market for $18 million, making it the most expensive property in the state.

The sellers built the home on Walloon Lake in 2018 and used it as their primary residence.


Reclaimed Douglas fir beams were used to build the 30-foot ceilings in the great room.


The rest of the walls were constructed of maple or planking.


This is one of the few true post and beam homes in the area and not everyone would have gone to the extra time and expense to create something like this.


There are six full bathrooms and four bedrooms, including a guest suite with a full kitchen and separate access.


There is also a charming cottage that was on the property when the sellers bought the place.


It was one of the original cabins on Walloon [Lake], so they just kept it, and there is a fireplace there.


A boathouse, two boat wells and a waterside gazebo are also included in the sale.


There are probably only a couple of these on the lake because they don't let you build houses on the water anymore and haven't for a while.


The gazebo is also a no-brainer.


Back in the main house, a large three season activity room has a fireplace, grill, hot tub and plenty of space for entertaining.


It is fantastic and overlooks the water. You can open up this area and let the breeze blow in off the lake.


The fun-filled lower level includes a bar, media room and fitness room - with a sauna and steam room and an adjoining bathroom.


While northern Michigan winters can be cold, this home has an efficient geothermal HVAC system with underfloor heating and a whole-house generator.


Even though this listing is the most expensive in Michigan, it is worth it.


The details, even in the roof system, are paramount and this is more of a hand built home.

When you walk through the door, you feel like you've entered something special that few people have ever been inside.


Buyers will probably make this place a second home and be able to enjoy it immediately.


Ideal for those who don't want to go through the three year build process and want a really well thought out home.
