Through solid Cherry, leaded glass, French doors, an expansive vestibule features imported Italian marble, a 27' vaulted ceiling and a lavishly bespoke Black Walnut staircase graciously introducing the second floor. Beautifully produced and extravagantly appointed, this 6600sf, five bed, three-and-a-half bath home was recently transformed by a number of improvements and upgrades that have indisputably elevated its stature to a work of art in and of itself. To reproduce this level of mastery today, a number of custom home builders and appraisers' have estimated the cost between $1.7MM and $1.8MM. The heart of every home is an inviting and functional kitchen, and the exceptional renovations to this breathtaking belle maison will ensure that your personal culinary endeavors and social galas are richly rewarded, deeply enjoyable and an unfettered success. Complementing the custom cherry cabinets, this stunning kitchen features new granite counters and backsplash, new Minka Lavery lighting, new under cabinet lighting, new professional grade Moen and Delta plumbing fixtures, new stainless steel sinks, and a new stainless steel appliance suite including a GE built-in double oven, Danby dual zone wine cooler, Jenaire Downdraft Gas Cooktop, Bosch Dishwasher, GE Microwave Oven and a Krüshr Trash/Recycling Compactor. The view from the Great Room undeniably takes center stage with a wall of windows and doors, but a commanding brick wall with fireplace and a 27' cathedral ceiling with skylights, Cherry beams and elegant 72" Minka Aire ceiling fans offer a fair amount of competition. The home's three additional bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, laundry, formal and informal dining and intimate lounge with gas fireplace and convenient access to the brick terrace complete the main floor. The second level is devoted entirely to the master en suite and fifth bedroom. If a home office is a necessary convenience, the fifth bedroom will serve ideally well. An impressive Gatsby era en suite is introduced by leaded glass French doors and elegant Minka Lavery sconces that are repeated elsewhere throughout the home. Extraordinarily calming and sophisticated, this very special space features a 240sf private balcony with a freshly painted 'Mackinac Blue' ceiling; sitting area with gas fireplace; posh bath with onyx tub, shower and counter; custom cherry vanities; decorative sinks; elegant lighting fixtures; and an uncommon multi-dimensional closet. This is an estate made for entertaining, celebrations and comfortable, relaxed living. Covered and uncovered outdoor dining, lounging and sunning areas are available on the 1700sf brick terrace. Refurbished, rebuilt and better than new, all walls and flat surfaces have been touched by one of the area's finest masons and new limestone pier caps and wall caps were added for greater aesthetic appeal and durability. The unfinished lower level is replete with opportunity and has theoretically defined space for a large family room, game room (or theater room), fitness room (or wine cellar) and copious storage including over 1000sf of additional storage in a crawl space. Two crown jewels of the lower level are the split stone, gas-log fire place in the family room and the ramped access through the 3.5 stall heated garage to the great outdoors. 43535 Carla Drive is an incomparable fusion of artistic design, superior construction and finishing materials, incredible personal comforts and conveniences, and exceptional lake and sunset views. To own an estate of this caliber is to enjoy the thrill of finding a unique luxury experience that is seldom replicated for this price. At almost 200 acres, this spring fed, all-sports lake has a maximum depth of 60 feet, is known as a recreational hotspot and is renowned by anglers for an abundance of bluegill and largemouth bass. More importantly, Eagle Lake is known for the exceptionally clean, clear water. Successfully controlling invasive weeds such as Milfoil for almost 20 years, Eagle Lake is one of the few lakes in Michigan that boasts successful biological management without the use of chemicals. Whether you're looking for a permanent residence or a sophisticated vacation get-away, convenience and accessibility are always key. Less than 3 miles from the I-94 corridor and surrounded by agriculture, Eagle Lake is only 128 miles from Chicago, 40 miles from Elkhart, 46 miles from South Bend, 144 miles from Fort Wayne, 162 miles from Detroit and 72 miles from Grand Rapids. Kalamazoo and the Lake Michigan shoreline are both apx thirty minutes from home. Serving as the Van Buren County seat in the heart of southwest Michigan's wine country, Paw Paw is home to St. Julian Winery and the annual Wine and Harvest Festival. If you're a connoisseur of wine or beer, wine and vineyards are to Paw Paw as Microbreweries are to Kalamazoo. Numerous museums, shops, cultural opportunities, concerts, festivals, dining, beaches, parks and recreational venues populate Kalamazoo, South Haven and the surrounding communities. Eagle Lake has two assessments that appear on the tax roll: (1) Eagle Lk Weed $62.97 and (2) Gates Drain $4.36 (fluctuates per parcel). Eagle Lake also has a voluntary association but membership is encouraged to help with water management activities. Dues are currently $25/yr. Membership is necessary for voting privileges. [The ELPPA (Eagle Lake Paw Paw Association) represents the lake itself from the shoreline to the center of the lake. NOTE: Pre-approval or Proof of Funds MUST accompany showing requests.

    Through solid Cherry, leaded glass, French doors, an expansive vestibule features imported Italian marble, a 27' vaulted ceiling and a lavishly bespoke Black Walnut staircase graciously introducing the second floor. Beautifully produced and extravagantly appointed, this 6600sf, five bed, three-and-a-half bath home was recently transformed by a number of improvements and upgrades that have indisputably elevated its stature to a work of art in and of itself. To reproduce this level of mastery today, a number of custom home builders and appraisers' have estimated the cost between $1.7MM and $1.8MM. The heart of every home is an inviting and functional kitchen, and the exceptional renovations to this breathtaking belle maison will ensure that your personal culinary endeavors and social galas are richly rewarded, deeply enjoyable and an unfettered success. Complementing the custom cherry cabinets, this stunning kitchen features new granite counters and backsplash, new Minka Lavery lighting, new under cabinet lighting, new professional grade Moen and Delta plumbing fixtures, new stainless steel sinks, and a new stainless steel appliance suite including a GE built-in double oven, Danby dual zone wine cooler, Jenaire Downdraft Gas Cooktop, Bosch Dishwasher, GE Microwave Oven and a Krüshr Trash/Recycling Compactor. The view from the Great Room undeniably takes center stage with a wall of windows and doors, but a commanding brick wall with fireplace and a 27' cathedral ceiling with skylights, Cherry beams and elegant 72" Minka Aire ceiling fans offer a fair amount of competition. The home's three additional bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, laundry, formal and informal dining and intimate lounge with gas fireplace and convenient access to the brick terrace complete the main floor. The second level is devoted entirely to the master en suite and fifth bedroom. If a home office is a necessary convenience, the fifth bedroom will serve ideally well. An impressive Gatsby era en suite is introduced by leaded glass French doors and elegant Minka Lavery sconces that are repeated elsewhere throughout the home. Extraordinarily calming and sophisticated, this very special space features a 240sf private balcony with a freshly painted 'Mackinac Blue' ceiling; sitting area with gas fireplace; posh bath with onyx tub, shower and counter; custom cherry vanities; decorative sinks; elegant lighting fixtures; and an uncommon multi-dimensional closet. This is an estate made for entertaining, celebrations and comfortable, relaxed living. Covered and uncovered outdoor dining, lounging and sunning areas are available on the 1700sf brick terrace. Refurbished, rebuilt and better than new, all walls and flat surfaces have been touched by one of the area's finest masons and new limestone pier caps and wall caps were added for greater aesthetic appeal and durability. The unfinished lower level is replete with opportunity and has theoretically defined space for a large family room, game room (or theater room), fitness room (or wine cellar) and copious storage including over 1000sf of additional storage in a crawl space. Two crown jewels of the lower level are the split stone, gas-log fire place in the family room and the ramped access through the 3.5 stall heated garage to the great outdoors. 43535 Carla Drive is an incomparable fusion of artistic design, superior construction and finishing materials, incredible personal comforts and conveniences, and exceptional lake and sunset views. To own an estate of this caliber is to enjoy the thrill of finding a unique luxury experience that is seldom replicated for this price. At almost 200 acres, this spring fed, all-sports lake has a maximum depth of 60 feet, is known as a recreational hotspot and is renowned by anglers for an abundance of bluegill and largemouth bass. More importantly, Eagle Lake is known for the exceptionally clean, clear water. Successfully controlling invasive weeds such as Milfoil for almost 20 years, Eagle Lake is one of the few lakes in Michigan that boasts successful biological management without the use of chemicals. Whether you're looking for a permanent residence or a sophisticated vacation get-away, convenience and accessibility are always key. Less than 3 miles from the I-94 corridor and surrounded by agriculture, Eagle Lake is only 128 miles from Chicago, 40 miles from Elkhart, 46 miles from South Bend, 144 miles from Fort Wayne, 162 miles from Detroit and 72 miles from Grand Rapids. Kalamazoo and the Lake Michigan shoreline are both apx thirty minutes from home. Serving as the Van Buren County seat in the heart of southwest Michigan's wine country, Paw Paw is home to St. Julian Winery and the annual Wine and Harvest Festival. If you're a connoisseur of wine or beer, wine and vineyards are to Paw Paw as Microbreweries are to Kalamazoo. Numerous museums, shops, cultural opportunities, concerts, festivals, dining, beaches, parks and recreational venues populate Kalamazoo, South Haven and the surrounding communities. Eagle Lake has two assessments that appear on the tax roll: (1) Eagle Lk Weed $62.97 and (2) Gates Drain $4.36 (fluctuates per parcel).
