Most of you know I have a passion for Door County Wisconsin Vacations.  While searching various things in Door County on line, I found this lovely home.  It's for sale!  But, alas, it's way over my budget.  But who says we can't dream?  So, I am sharing it with all of my Home Tour Dreamers!  This is truly a beautiful place, surrounded by water - Door County is a 72 mile long peninsula, filled with beautiful scenery, beaches and homes.  There is alot to do and see in Door County.  If you're considering a vacation...check it out!

12676 Door Bluff Park Road

Ellison Bay, Wisconsin 54210 

Built into the side of a bluff in the secluded wooded community adjacent to Door Bluff Headlands County Park, this mid-century modern gem was designed by Wisconsin Architectural Hall of Fame "Green" pioneers Willis and Lillian Leenhouts. Wraparound decks are on both levels of this totally rehabbed home. The high end teak kitchen boasts fossilized Ontario limestone countertops, stainless steel SubZero refrigerator, 6 burner WOLF range, Viking hood, Miele dishwasher, and separate SubZero beverage cooler. The baths feature German porcelain Duravit sinks and commodes.  There's over 400' of Lake Michigan frontage with a new 120' steel and concrete pier with 60' dogleg and 60' extension with extra wide dredging built before the state-wide moratorium. Moorings for 4 boats are possible. The buildable adjacent parcel and teak furniture designed for the original home are included in the offering.
