Racine house description

Sip your morning coffee while enjoying the beautiful sunrise from the front porch. This cozy 3 bedroom two bath charmer has been completely updated with refinished hardwood floors, ceiling fans and period details throughout.

There are plenty of sleeping arrangements. The two bunk beds allow sleeping for 4, 2 twin beds, a queen bed, a king bed and a futon. Sleeps 11.

Cook great meals in the fully equipped kitchen and dine in the separate dining room with seating for six. The living room has comfortable couches, cable TV and WIFI throughout. There is a full sized washer and dryer located in the finished basement.

Just a short 300 steps to the water, set your eyes on miles of shoreline at North Beach, voted cleanest beach in Wisconsin for 2004***. Life guards are on duty during the summer. The nearby Pugh Marina makes this location water sport friendly. Bring your boat, jet ski or wave runner. There are 12 sand volleyball courts. The North Beach Oasis is a concession stand on the beach where you order tasty treats and can hear live music on weekends.

Charter a boat for excellent salmon and trout fishing. Walk two blocks to the Racine Zoo. Walking and bike paths are right outside your front door. Kids will go crazy over the new two million dollar playground located on the beach. Sample some of the fantastic nearby restaurants.

Whether you're looking for peace and quiet or an exciting fun-filled vacation, this home offers the best of everything.

***Since 2004, North Beach in Racine, WI has been awarded the 'Blue Wave Beach' by the Clean Beaches Council. The first in Wisconsin to receive this designation.
