                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: Melissa, Bryan, and Keaton Michigan natives currently living in California.

                      Why the Owner Chose Leland:
                      Leland is our second home, enjoyed a lifetime of memories year around with family here. Our family lives in Leland, own businesses (Leland Toy Company, Blue Moon), and attend the Leland Public School. People travel the world to find their special place... we come home to Leland. We bought the Pearl sight unseen because we always loved the house growing up - we didn't need to see it. We love Leland and the Pearl House represents the original feeling and authenticity of this beautiful place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      walk to Lake Michigan beaches, Leland Country Club, Lake Leelanau public beach w/lifeguard and boat launch, easy stroll to river access for kayaking or boat launch. Cycling in the Leelanau Peninsula is fantastic. Wine tours around the M-22 Loop. Walk to unique one of a kind shops, yoga, Sisson's Bakery for sticky goodness, Fishtown, Leelanau Historical Museum with tons of nautical lore within short walk.
