Port Austin house description

Built in 1924, this beautiful home sits at west end of 62 home sites located within 975 acre private township. Sandstone cliffs line the west end, offering unique cove beaches and incredible sunset views. 300 yards to the east begin over 1 mile of private beach. You'll enjoy lake views from five bedrooms (3 with screened balconies) and every room downstairs. Stepping outside, nearly an acre of grassy lawn and towering oak trees add to 200 feet of private lakefront splendor.

Stroll only 100 feet west of the yard and you'll be standing on Thumbnail point, offering perhaps the most incredible sunset views on Lake Huron. Immediately behind you, gentle waves will lap landmark Turnip rock as you take in the magic of a Michigan spring/summer/fall.

Established in 1896 and [summer] home many 20th century industrialists, Pointe Aux Barques community retains courtesy, friendliness, and respect toward others common to that era. While in our home, you'll have access to our modest, private (no fee) golf course, tennis courts, miles of walking and biking trails, kid play structure, and golf cart rentals. Dress codes required for golf and tennis. NO WEDDINGS or large reunions.
