About This Property
This is one of the most stunning 4-acre lots on Lake Michigan and has a unique history. In the 1950's it was a museum and housed restored Rolls Royces and Bentley automobiles that fit through the double front doors. Then in 1983 it was converted to a home and later flat roof was turned into a Prairie style home with large eaves. From the moment you enter the driveway to entering through the front doors of the home, you're surrounded by natural beauty in this wooded dune setting. With 13' ceilings on the main floor and 10' in the lower level of the main home, the home was built like a fortress with steel I-beams, R41 fiberglass ceiling tiles, newer Dryvet-style siding, beamed ceilings and it comes with a guest house and a total of 4 garage stalls.The kitchen features newer granite countertops and has a large center island. With neighbors to the north and south that can barely be seen, the one to the south is about 15 acres and shares the first part of the driveway that forks off to the south past the guest house. There's still good beach despite record high lake levels and usually much more and it is a lower bluff. The main floor master suite has both bidet and toilet, double sink, and makeup counter. Pocket doors in many places. In the open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen is a wood burning stove that's unique and the kitchen has custom wood cabinetry. There are black locust and other unique trees on the property. The main home has 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and lots of living space upstairs and down. Windows are replaced. There is a speaker wire running throughout the main home. There are 3 furnaces, 2 natural gas, 1 is wood burning that hasn't been used. There home is easy to heat.k You'll love the looks of the home from the outside to inside. There's a lakeside deck with tempered glass and you can see the beach even when sitting down in the living or dining rooms. The guest house has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 2 living areas. Both homes have an attached 2 stall garage. Theres a cedar closet, a whirlpool tub and shower in the master and an office/living room plus another large family room in the basement with a 2nd kitchen (that could easily have a sink added to tap into the sanitary lines that are already there).
