                          Year Purchased: 1976

                          About the owner: My wife and I purchased this house almost 40 years ago and it has been a wonderful getaway for four generations of our famiy. Hopefully, our future grandchildren will enjoy the house as much as we have. The house was built in 1912 by the parents of a child suffering from lung problems. They were told by their doctor to get the kid out of the City so she could spend time running around on the hot sand, swimming in Lake Michigan, and breathing fresh air. We actually met one of the siblings about twenty years ago and he left us photos showing what the place looked like when it was first built - miles of sand, dune grass, and no neighbors. Of course, the house has been renovated many times but it has always retained the sunny, open, rustic character of the original. We are sure that you will enjoy the house as much as we have! Alex & Claire.
