                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: My name is Sandy for a reason! I live at the beach from sunrise to sunset!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Manistee:
                      We searched for 6 years before we found this property. We chose this home for its spectacular views of Lake Michigan, its close proximity to the water's edge, and for the five mile, uninhabited, pristine, curvy beach. It doesn't get any better than this!
