Parade of Homes includes Crystal River modern farm house

From staff reports

The Grand Traverse Area Home Builders Association’s Parade of Homes, June 14-17, will include a modern farm house on the Crystal River just steps away from downtown Glen Arbor.

This custom crafted home by CMB Construction is wooded riverfront living at its finest. The home’s spacious layout was designed for the owners to live comfortably while also entertaining guests.

The clean white board and batten exterior and gable details echo both modern and craftsman styles. The interior boasts large vaulted ceilings with decorative trusses, hickory hardwood flooring, shiplap accent walls, and a spacious chef’s kitchen which features a bar table and granite countertops. Every window has views of the Crystal River and the natural forest surrounding. The master bedroom features a double-sided fireplace, a vaulted ceiling, and sliding glass doors with river views. The master bathroom offers a luxurious feel with its large tub, custom cedar vanity which is reminiscent of driftwood, and spacious closet. On the second floor there are two bedrooms, a bathroom for guests, and a large balcony which offers a high vantage point of the cavernous main living area below. Inside and out every detail in this custom home has been painstakingly thought out to ensure the stresses of everyday life simply melt away.
