Michigan City house description

This home could be out of the pages of Coastal Living Magazine. Wake up to views of Lake Michigan from just across the street. Step out onto the screened porch off the master bedroom and have a cup of coffee as you gear up for a great day at the beach or pool; shopping or gambling.

Gather with the family for delicious meals in the spacious kitchen and dining area. At the end of the day come back to the house and relax in the living area or spend some time in the more casual finished basement.

This beautiful home features a spacious, inviting design defined by crown molding & 10' ceilings. The main floor features a large kitchen with center island and separate dining area and is a great gathering place for those home cooked meals. The living area opens to a screened deck and features a gas fireplace, and Television, Bose Surround Sound Stereo, a Tivo system and a wet bar. Upstairs you will find a large master bedroom with a king size bed and a private bath and two other bedrooms with Queen size beds and a Jack and Jill bath.

The walk-out basement is completely finished and features a great family room with a full service wet bar. There are also two bedrooms in the basement; one with a king size bed and a bunk room with 2 sets of bunks. What a great setup for two or more families!
