Elk Rapids house description

Enjoy this spacious and tastefully furnished 2200 sq. ft. home minutes away from breathtaking views of Grand Traverse Bay and the charming downtown of Elk Rapids. This 1887 historic home has been totally remodeled and completed for use. Two years of renovations touched mostly every room! This home is decorated in pottery barn style with Martha Stewart colors on the wall that extend your stay from the beach to the beach house. Perfect location in town is ideal with walking distance three streets from the marina boat launch and walking distance to the Lake Michigan beach, with tennis courts, basketball courts and children's jungle gyms. The home features an enclosed porch with screens, a new kitchen with nice appliances including a black gas cooktop, dishwasher, fridge, and microwave. There is a separate dining room with a table to accommodate 6-8 people. There are 2 newly finished bathrooms which include one with full vanity, toilet, tub-shower combination and one with a new shower, vanity and toilet. The family room is spacious with 2 large sofas and a 32” inch LCD flat screen TV with Direct TV satellite. Need more room? There is also a gaming room equipped with an entertainment center with a 27” TV and game cube (just in case you need the break!) The first floor has re-finished hardwood floors in the kitchen and dining room. To add in the comfort of your stay is a first floor laundry room with full capacity washer and dryer. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms-1 with a full bed, 1 with two twins and the loft bedroom with a day bed and ANOTHER full bed! Master bedroom is downstairs and has a queen bed.
Elk Rapids is a wonderful community with lots of activities for kids. There is also a local ice cream shop, toy store, antique stores, movie theater, bar and grille, Siren Hall for fine dining, and a Subway with free WIFI two streets away! The Elk Rapids Library which was once owned by the 'Noble Family' is downtown across the walking bridge and has free internet on computers or WIFI if you bring your own.

The property in the back has fences on both sides for privacy, a paved alley for additional parking, a small BBQ for use and a newly added deck.
