Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: The owner bought the property after visiting the property on a warm September day and looking south across the bay. He worked as an Assistant Attorney General in Michigan and upon the loss of his wife to cancer left city life and returned the the peace and quiet of living on west bay in North Michigan. Life is slower here and one has time to reflect and find peace.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
The view from this property changes each day as the weather changes. It is a peaceful and relaxing place to find yourself. Each day brings a new adventure to the visitor and young or old will find many things to get them out of the house. You will make memories that will stay with you the rest of your life. There are cherry and apple orchards, ducks, eagles, herons, swans, and many more critters moving about for your viewing pleasure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is close to most things you need in Traverse City, yet has the feel of a country setting.
