This Majestic Craftsman Style home with contemporary flare presides on 50 country acres and is enhanced by the attraction of llamas.
As an Established, owner occupied Inn, operating since 2000, Topliff Tara is a popular stayover for M.S.U. visitors and couples seeking a quiet getaway within easy driving distance of the Detroit suburbs. Many travelers between Chicago and Toronto find this halfway point to be a surprising destination of its own. Visitors will enjoy quiet country vistas from every room and from the various porches and decks where they can watch the fireflies and enjoy the beautiful flowering gardens and fresh country air. The gracious llamas are a big attraction to the Inn and could stay with the property.
The property was purchased by the current owners in 1992. The original farmhouse portion which houses the bed & breakfast was built in 1905 and in 1985 the second portion of the home was added which now serves as the owner's living quarters. There is over 6000 sq ft, 9 bedrooms and 5 full baths with 2 powder rooms. The main living quarters offer a dramatic 2 story foyer with an often-photographed winding oak staircase. The handsome architectural design of the post-and-beam construction and volume ceilings in the new addition is amazing and impressive! The designer kitchenette in the b & b was remodeled in 2011. The generously sized gourmet kitchen is gorgeous and boasts an oversized granite center Island with cook top and miles of granite counter space for food prep and serving.
The main living quarters offers: great room, expansive kitchen, formal dining room, den, Library, family room, Master Bedroom with sitting room and second bedroom, and 2 powder rooms. The Bed and Breakfast side offers 7 potential bedrooms; one is currently used as an office/gift shop and the other as a den. There are 4 full baths and one of the bedrooms has a sink for freshening up. This incredible home and property offers perennial gardens, picturesque views during all the 4 seasons and is close to the desirable community of Williamston that offers live theater, movie theater, new outdoor bandstand, trendy eateries and fine dining, award winning schools and state of the art sports facilities.
