Alden house description

Welcome to fabled Torch Lake, heralded by National Geographic as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, “where the rainbow stores its colors” of crystal clear Caribbean aquamarines and sandy bottom. Your vacation hideaway home is idyllic, situated on a slopping green grass bluff with lavish flower beds surrounded on three sides by tall/towering evergreens with expansive views of beautiful Torch Lake. From your elegant and private deck overlooking the private road and lake, drink in the fresh northern air as you sip a morning coffee or perhaps an evening cocktail complete with fabulous lake sunsets.
This modern and private family home has everything you need to make it the perfect home base for any vacation concept. It is spacious and perfect for the multi generational vacation, with something for everyone, even handicap accessible. Just a relaxing five minute stroll to the quaint and picture perfect town of Alden with marvelous shopping, boutiques, dining, tennis and boat launch. Plenty of activities are just a bike ride or walk away; the historic train depot, kids playground and park with lake beaches, hiking trails up Coy Mountain, biking trails on roads or in the woods, river canoeing and many fabulous golf courses including the world class famous Legends, all of it just outside your door. Of course fall and winter brings you opportunities for Michigan’s finest fall color tours, skiing and snowmobiling. Traverse City is a short 25 minutes away for exciting nights on the town, shopping and cultural events, not to mention the gorgeous East and West bays, Lake Michigan and the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas.

The house boasts four bedrooms and three and a half baths.The upper living level houses a great room with high-end home theater and marvelous large window views, separate dining in the three seasons room and on the deck, and a modern kitchen with all the appliances. An office is also present with high speed cable modem. Two master bedrooms are located on this level, each with en-suite facilities and floor to ceiling windows.

Downstairs is a second family area with home theater and large circular dining space served by a dumb waiter, walk out entrance and two of the four bedrooms and bath. It’s a great place for the kids or a second couple to have their own space.

Our neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and therefor not conducive to large or noisy groups or parties. The speed limit on our road is 15 MPH (enforced by neighbors) making it perfect for walking or biking.

Reserve your dates soon to escape to a very special true Northern Michigan experience.

Best regards, Kevin and Judy
