Elk Rapids house description

Totally redone home on East Grand Traverse Bay with Canoe and Kayak, sports, and activities on 150' of Grand Traverse Bay frontage. Very private!

Enjoy the breathtaking sunsets while roasting marshmallows and walk the beach for miles in each direction. The water gets nice and warm in the bay so bring the watertoys and swimsuits because that's all you'll need here. The property is very private with towering pines surrounding you.

The 2 sided split stone fireplace is the center piece of the home which at one time was featured in Grand Traverse Magazine. This is a great escape with many new upgrades. Granite countertops, wood floors, stone floors, NEW stainless steel appliances, and an open, airy floorplan will make you feel comfortable and welcome. How are you going to leave this place?

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: I purchased this home in 2006 and have put a lot of love and labor into making it a special place up north. There's so much peacefulness to enjoy here. I love waking up to the sound of the surf, walking the beach, and just hanging out on the deck and not hearing a sound aside from birds, water and trees blowing. I will do everything in my power to make this a special place for you and your family.

              Why the Owner Chose Elk Rapids:
              I love this Paradise between Traverse City (Elk Rapids) and Charlevoix. There are lots of local farmers for your fresh produce. Great, kind people in this area is the one thing I love the most. I have been here for over 15 years and still LOVE the Bay the most. I love walking the beach and the sunsets are amazing. GT Bay will always be special to me. Lots of morels and whitefish in the spring too.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You will enjoy swimming, walking,canoeing, kayaking, basketball, birdwatching, biking, relaxing, playing games and spending time with family. Drive up to the local farm markets for locally grown fruits and veggies. The list of things to enjoy is endless.
