Almost 3 acres surrounded by oak forest. An unusual private getaway. Only accessible by hiking up 75-foot rustic old driveway.
The house is a hidden hideaway at the end of a cul-du-sac. Yet it is a-few-block walking distance to restaurants, local-favorite coffee house, and the sandy Lake Michigan. 5 minute drive to West Beach and trails in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
Custom-built by a brick mason for his father some 40 years ago. Current owner, a prominent Chicago stone importer, remodeled with exotic natural stones and intentionally leave the driveway in original condition. Top-of-the-line modern amenities (Viking cooktop, Bosch washer/dryer, BainUltra jacuzzi, etc...) Central heat. Central a/c. Dishwasher.
If you rent this house you agree that it's a rustic hike-up house. This means it's at your own risk and you will not hold the owner responsible for you and/or your guests physical injury from an accidental slipping/falling within our private dune heaven, etc :)
NOTE: - The view is so great and the house is surrounded by forest, we don't have any blinds or draperies, even in the bathrooms.
- TV. WIFI. CD player. Cell phone signals, although hit and miss.
- There is a house next door, but it is boarded up -- no one living there.
- Lots of deers, squarrels, racoons, birds, and wild animals.
It's a hike-up house. The trail up is an old drive way. -- At your own risk... The house is to be left in the same condition as when you found it. (I take care of detailed cleaning and laundry.) All garbage down to the trash bin at the bottom of the hill. However, if you don't want to spend your precious vacation weekend on household chores, I completely understand. Let me know, I can add $125 and we will be very happy to handle the cleaning for you ;)...moreless
