Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We're Midwesterners through and through. Both my husband and I were born in Michigan - though we've lived in Illinois most of our lives. I guess our roots kept calling us home. We bought this house in April 2014 because we simply love Michigan - and specifically New Buffalo/Union Pier - it's an easy drive from our home in Naperville.
Why the Owner Chose New Buffalo: We've been vacationing with the kids in the New Buffalo, Union Pier area for years and have had some of the most wonderful memories. We simply love it here and couldn't resist the opportunity to buy-in to New Buffalo for the long run and continue to spend quality time with our kids, family and friends.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home is quaint yet spacious. The finished lower level was one of the features we loved the most as it keeps the kids close, yet gives everyone a little space to spread out. With a 4th bedroom and bath in the lower level, it's great for grandparents or multiple families. We love the size of the yard and the privacy it provides. This house has plenty of room for rainy day summer fun too!
