Property description

Stunning sunsets, beautiful shoreline, surrounded by trees! Enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Michigan.

The house sits on a point that provides panoramic views of Lake Michigan to the north and Grand Traverse Bay to the south. The point seems to draw the birds (for you bird watchers). It is located just north of the village of Eastport which is at the northern tip of Torch Lake. You can walk the beach forever - something you can't do on inland lakes.

Enjoy a fire during the cool nights in the lakeside fire pit or the dramatic two story fireplace.

A private sandy area with fire pit is located near the house. A large deck and covered porch overlook the lake.

The beach has pebbles and sand with a bottom of smooth rocks (aqua shoes are recommended).

There are two tandem kayaks that can be used to enjoy the bay.

The home is 'like new' with 2,500' square feet of living space.

There are three bedrooms and a 'dormitory' plus sleeper sofa.

The kitchen is new with stainless steel appliances including dishwasher. A gorgeous quartz countertop island with double bowl sink provides a dramatic lake view. The icemaker allows ice to be moved right to your cooler.

A washer and dryer is provided on the main floor for convenience.

All the modern conveniences are provided including high speed internet and cable TV (cable TV may not be available in the off season).

To keep you cool there are seven ceiling fans and a one ton window air conditioner upstairs (no central air conditioning).

The 'double' lot offers 200 feet of private shoreline and access to miles of beach to walk and enjoy.

Just 250 yards south is a private neighborhood park area with 75' of sandy beach and a small creek for the kids to enjoy.

The bay is shallow which makes it great for young children.

The master bedroom is a large loft area and the only room upstairs. It overlooks the family room and dining area (and the lake). It has a private reading area. The master bath offers a relaxing whirlpool tub. The second bedroom and den/bedroom are on the main floor. Dormitory sleeping is provided on the lower level in the 'rec room'.

There is a small grocery store with a great deli (and delicious summer BBQ) only 5 minutes away.

Fine dining is available at the nearby Rowe Inn - one of Michigan's most acclaimed restaurants.

There is plenty of parking including space for a boat trailer. There is a boat launch 5 minutes away.

Castle Farms is less than 30 minutes away so the cottage is a great place to stay with family while you attend a wedding.

There is a small private neighborhood park about 250 yards south with a sandy beach and a small creek that is great fun for the kids. The park can be a great place to meet people.

Enjoy Antrim Creek Nature Area just a few miles north, walk the beach for miles, Barnes Park and Torch Bay Preserve and Day Park are a few miles south.
