About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Beautiful, Architecturally Significant House in Gordon Beach enclave - Private Heated Pool and Private Beach Access

Designed by architect Anthony Moss, this unique Gordon Beach house is an exquisite lakeside retreat providing a beautiful and comfortable getaway for up to seven adults and children, 75 minutes from downtown Chicago.

A stunning property featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 large full baths, a private heated pool, gourmet kitchen, a full compliment of outdoor accommodations including a screened in porch and plenty of space for a large family—all within a 3 minute walk to a private beach!

Interior amenities: Soaring ceilings with clerestory windows drench the great room with sunlight. Comfortable and casual overstuffed furniture provides the perfect nest for reading on a rare cloudy day. The huge master bathroom en suite includes a large tub, glass block shower with rain-flow head, and deliciously cool slate floors. The second bedroom is equipped with bunk beds and an additional twin trundle bed. The third bedroom features a queen-size convertible bed and full bath (double basin) en suite that also provides additional access to the private pool area.


Gleaming hardwood floors and high quality linens accentuate the clean crisp feel of a well-tended house. A chef’s dream industrial stove, butcher block breakfast bar and plenty of prep space might entice even a vacationing cook to have a go! A washer and dryer are also available for your convenience.

Exterior amenities: Beautiful private deck surrounding a very large heated in-ground swimming pool (36 x 18 ft) comes complete with lots of great pool toys and floats, comfortable lounging furniture, as well a large gas grill. Enjoy a late-night dip under the stars or a relaxing poolside supper after a sunny day at the beach.

A perfectly sophisticated retreat for adults as well as a very fun haven for kids, including a large rustic play scape and a cute tree swing.

Location, location, location makes this place truly wonderful. Within easy walking distance to “Timothy’s,” one of Harbor Country’s premier restaurants, a delicious dinner is never far away! Bicycle to shops and snacks, amble along our quiet paths; this is lakeside living at its finest.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I have another home in the area but I reside in Oak Park, IL with my teenage girls and my spouse.

Why the Owner Chose Union Pier, MI, USA:
This house is well known in the Gordon Beach area because of the unique architecture. I have been coming to SW Michigan since I was a freshman in college and I haven't stopped. This house is perfect for a small family and I still enjoy using the house with my family a few weekends in the summer.
