A large, beautiful home in the Irish Hills area of southeastern Michigan. The home is nestled on a hill overlooking Little Stoney Lake. With an open floor plan and abundant natural light streaming in on all sides, this two story house is ideal for large groups, gatherings, and for anyone who wants to feel one with nature. The large great room is lined with windows looking out at a wooded area or the acres of land attached to the house complete with native plants and hiking trails. The large wraparound deck off the back of the house has built in benches and is perfect for soaking up sun, bird watching, or for late afternoon grilling and socializing. The upstairs bedrooms have spectacular views of the lake and the nearby woods.
While the house is not directly on the lake, the lake, complete with access to a private waterfront area and a dock, is just a short walk down the hill. Perfect for swimming, fishing, or just taking in the sun on lazy summer days, Little Stoney Lake is a pristine, quiet lake with no motorboats or jet skis. Take a kayak, paddleboat, or rowboat out on the lake to explore the shoreline or get friendly with turtles on the branches in the shallows. Or, step out the back door and explore the network of hiking trails that meander through the land attached to the house. The trails connect to the adjacent state preserve land – ideal for long walks, finding morel mushrooms, and exploring the woods.
So quiet and secluded but still only a very short drive to all that the Irish Hills and the quaint village of Brooklyn have to offer: Hidden Lake Gardens; golf courses; Michigan International Speedway/NASCAR; wineries; shops and restaurants; and much, much more. Or take slightly longer trips to enjoy the many attractions offered by the nearby cities of Jackson, Adrian, and Ann Arbor.
