About This Property

Unique family retreat, first time offered by original owners. This hidden gem offers absolutely stunning views of Big Blue w/access to miles of Lake MI beach. Enjoy direct private frontage on Lake MI along w/front row seats to the most glorious sunsets on the planet. This custom built and designed retreat boasts 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths. Perched on a slight dune gives a commanding view of lake and beach front from one of many decks and patios. Open soaring ceilings give the modest square foot home a much bigger feel. The main floor features a large kitchen island that serves as a gathering point for your friends and family. The kitchen and island blend into the spacious dining area (w/fp) living space (w/built-in seating) and sliders to a lake front deck. A full bath, bedroom and mainfloor laundry complete the main floor. On the 2nd level you will discover the master bedroom suite w/full bath and additional space for a reading nook or study. Plenty of closet space compliment the suite. The lower walkout level has its own entrance. Smartly designed, this space can double as a rental unit! The lower level includes a kitchen, full bath, 2 bedrooms and large family/dining space. A wall of glass brings tons of light into this space and opens to a ground level patio. Use this space for family and guests or weekly or weekend rental-you decide! Additionally, the home includes a privately owned boat slip on Pigeon Lake (an easy walk from the home) with provides you w/access to the open waters of Big Blue for fishing, sailing, boat cottage tours (always a hit w/your guests). Lake Michigan a little rough? No problem, enjoy boating on the protected waters of Pigeon Lake! Back to the beach! The private 45 feet of frontage feels much larger due to excellent site planning and placement and also an unused 12 foot easement between the neighbor to the north. Originally platted back in the early 1900's for beach access for association back lot home owners. However, the easement was not developed, maintained or used and is not navigable. (It is on paper only). There is another easement for back lot members approx 100 feet to the north that includes a well maintained lighted path, parking and a sunset viewing deck for those members.
