The historical Hannah Lay Beach House, built in 1927, is a spectacular 7 bed/5.5 bath Cape Cod style home which boasts 235’ of private, sugar sand East Bay frontage along Traverse City's Miracle Mile!

A beautiful kitchen with gleaming countertops and ample cabinet storage is adjoined to the dining area, surrounded by windows. Beyond the living room into the water-facing family room is the opposite side of the stone fireplace, a handsome wet bar, and panoramic water views. The views continue with an expansive Primary bedroom boasting a traditional bay window, large walk-in closet and a private en suite bath featuring a dual vanity and a tiled corner shower-for-two. A large, designated laundry hosts a charming built-in window seat and separate exit point. On the west side of the home is a sizable guest bedroom with water views, full hallway bath, and a mudroom, connecting to the carriage house via a breezeway.
