J. Visser Design in collaboration with Scott Christoper Homes has created this modern treetop home located in Montague, Michigan. Nestled high atop a wooded dune, a quarter-mile-long steel boardwalk connects an opulent garage/loft to a 6,500-square-foot contemporary residence with three distinct living spaces.

The striking copper-and-stone exterior complements the multiple balconies, Brazilian Ipe decking, and outdoor entertaining areas, which feature an elaborate grill and large swim spa. Highlights of the main structure include an in-floor heating system, an enchanting wine grotto, and a large, climate-controlled wine cellar. This dwelling also boasts a sauna, elevator, and a private master balcony with an outdoor fireplace.

Surrounded by forest, this home offers the ultimate in privacy, while Lake Michigan’s crystal blue waters expand beneath you. Summer days are spent luxuriating on the beach, swimming, and boating, while evenings are for enjoying this incredible lakeshore lifestyle.

This is the most beautiful home I have ever seen in my entire life, and I am 71 years old! I sure hope you have a professional wash the windows.
