Through a magnificent forest, at the end of a long winding road is where you’ll find 426 feet of sand beach on Lake Michigan, views of four islands, seven acres with a custom main house, a vintage cabin, and a flowing stream that can all be yours today. Located between Leland and Northport, this property has been owned by the same family for more than 80 years. The main house is craftsman style, with one level living, an open floor plan, a main level master suite; a laundry mudroom leading to the two car garage; a full bath off the hall; great kitchen layout with a stainless island, a walk-in pantry, and of course beautiful lake views at every turn. On the upper level you’ll find two guest rooms and full bath. A notable feature between the guest rooms is the open loft, flexible space with a lake view to the west, and a balcony to the east. Designed by the architect owner, and built by Easling Construction, this comfortable home includes a gazebo, a spacious studio/storage area above the two-car attached garage, a workbench alcove, a detached one car, and an exterior storage structure. Then there is the 1940's cabin, on the original family campsite . This simple utilitarian charmer has wood floors, a wood-burning stove, a kitchen, two sleeping rooms and a bath. Beneath the foot bridge over the stream is the remnant of a water wheel that once pumped water to the cabin. Upgrades to the main house include new refrigerator, hot water heaters, 2014 forced air furnace. Some personal property is included in the sale.
