Lake Michigan Homes For Sale

Property Description

A coveted location on historic Michigan Avenue set back from the sandy shores of Lake Michigan where many have come to enjoy splendid summers for generations. Originally built in 1901, this nearly 7000 square foot home has been painstakingly restored back to its glory days. The wrap around street side porch is the perfect spot for reading the latest novel in the morning sun or just taking in the summer promenade that is Charlevoix the Beautiful. During the day, enjoy cool Lake Michigan breezes and build sandcastles on the 130 feet of sandy beach or explore the indigenous plantings and landscape designed by award winning naturalist Larry Weaner to protect the home and lot from Michigan weather. Inside this gracious home you will find period details including hardware, woodwork, tile, and plaster walls installed by master craftsmen. The spacious floor plan captures lake living at its finest. The large living room with an attached sunroom captures the sun’s rays perfectly and with a toasty warm fireplace even the winter ambiance is unmatched. Enjoy memorable dinners in the large lakeside dining room or on the expansive covered porch. You’ll watch the sun drop below the horizon and marvel at the spectacular Northern Michigan sunsets. The kitchen, breakfast area, and office have been brought up to modern high standards with a tribute to the past. Up the grand staircase there are four bedrooms and en suite bathrooms, three sweeping waterfront views. After breakfast, and a trip to the farmer’s market or a walk along the beach, you may sneak away for a quiet respite in one of the two sleeping porches or in the garden room tucked away behind the two-car garage. The third level will be a favorite amongst the young at heart with lots of nooks and hideouts great for games, puzzles, and storytelling. Rarely does an offering of this magnitude and location become available; please request a detailed portfolio today and you too can work and play year-round in Northern Michigan.
