Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Vince always wanted a beautiful piece of land in Leelanau County that he could transform into his showroom for his excavating and landscaping business. He bought Eagle's Nest in 2005 and slowly started to transform it into a work of art. The property is filled with large stone retaining walls, numerous flower gardens, built in pool patio, and tree galore.
