This lake house will WOW you with wonderful water and Manitou island views the minute you walk through the door! Renovated in 1999 by Easling Construction, the stylishly appointed and meticulously maintained home has 115 ft. of sandy, west-facing Lake Michigan frontage and is located on one of the best stretches of beach in Leelanau County! Have fun searching for beautiful beach glass and Petoskey stones, play in the waves, watch the passing ships and sunsets. Natural low-maintenance yard (with irrigation) is a magical forest that provides privacy and is home to many species of birds. Main floor master has access to the deck, a beautiful ensuite full bath with amazing views from both the tub and shower. Main floor guest room (currently used as a den) also has a private full bath. You'll find a total of 3 fireplaces - 2 made of stone on the main level - a stunning feature wall in the great room and the other in the master bedroom. The 3rd is made of brick in the family room on the lower level. New carpet (2019) in great room. Vaulted ceilings with cherry beams, solid cherry doors and trim on main level with maple cabinets and trim on the lower level. Slate floors lead to the kitchen with new wall ovens and refrigerator (2019), large pantry and amazing water views. Walk-out lower level boasts 2 additional bedrooms, full bath, kitchenette, family room, game room, workshop & storage. Host dinner parties on the spacious deck and follow the patio stones and wood walkway to the beachside deck and bon fire pit. No stairs or bluff, it's an easy walk to the water! Efficient Geo Thermal furnace and 2nd propane furnace for generator. Backup generator will keep you powered in the event of an outage. Ride your bike to Fischer's Happy Hour Tavern for lunch or dinner, take a quick trip north to the Village of Northport or head south a few miles to historic Leland. If you are looking for a quality constructed and well-maintained lake house - this is one of the finest.
