Northport house description

Newly renovated four bedroom, two bath house in the center of town with HOT TUB, babbling brook running through the front yard, bridge, huge willow trees, shady, peaceful, yet in the center of everything. New golf course in town, and a new family fun center with upscale bowling and dining within walking distance. Rental Stand Up Paddleboards and bikes also a block away.

New 450 square foot 'Key West Style' covered porch with ceiling fans, dining and sitting area, and deluxe gas BBQ grill. 100' setback from main road gives elevated view of town and privacy. Lake view from front yard, short walk to beach and harbor. Everybody loves this house! Take a tub in the North yard and listen to the mill stream while having a peaceful soak. Downstairs bedrooms have full double and queen beds, upstairs 'kids room' has 2 twin beds and a futon for friends to sleep over. Full basement has an additional well lighted and ventilated bedroom, additional recreation space with foosball table, 2nd bathroom with shower, washer/dryer and sitting area.

Great fall and winter activities in the area in addition to the nicest summer town on the planet. Walk one block or less to everything in town, including beaches, restaurants, harbor and grocery. Great for wine touring, snowshoeing, and summer is packed with fun. 2 public beaches and parks within view of the property, free concerts in the park every Friday all summer -- right down the street. Short walks to all including grocery, health club, several coffee shops, restaurants and bar. This house is in the dead center of town, but it is quiet and private. Safe for kids, mill stream in the yard, willow trees, paradise!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Will Harper has been spending summers in Northport since he was crawling on the sandy beaches as a toddler. He moved to Northern Michigan year-round in 2005, and purchased Mill St. Manor in 2008. After spending a full year renovating the house, he now loves having people enjoy the house he 'built' and turning people on to the best little beach/harbor town in Northern Michigan!

                  Why the Owner Chose Northport:
                  Northport combines beauty and recreation in a small-town, 'Mayberry-Like' setting. I grew up sailing on the bays here, working the cherry orchards, and roaming the woods and beaches. There is so much to do here that after 40 years my heart still skips when I pull into town. Everyone is so friendly, the beaches are amazing, and I love the food at the Eat Spot. When I saw this house in the very center of town, with the huge lawn with the mill stream running through it I knew it was a place I would want to own and share for the rest of my life.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  One of my favorite things to do in summer is walk down to the beach and park, just a block away. I also love to take a short ride out to the state park behind the airport (3 miles) and walk through the woods to the dunes and beach on Cathead bay. There is usually almost no one in this amazing dune area, so great to explore or just relax. The road biking in this area is about the best in Michigan, we have the Tour de Leelanau to attest to this, and I love to get on the bike and pick a 20-mile loop through wine and cherry country. Almost no traffic on smooth winding roads, it's a biker's paradise! Of course the sailing, fishing, and boating are phenomenal too, and the XC skiing in winter is the best in the state!
