Property description

I am excited to tell you about a truly 'one of a kind' location in Door County with a 'one of a kind' home! On the 'Quiet Side' of Door County there is a 'Dream Home' that is literally on the borderline of the Whitefish Dunes State Park. The views are nothing short of amazing. As you look out the large picture windows and skylights you will see beautiful white birch trees, an assortment of evergreen trees, huge sand dunes and a variety of wildlife including birds and whitetail deer.

Imagine.. a beautiful 4000 Square Foot Custom Built Home - with lots and lots of big windows and skylights - that is built on the borderline of a State Park. Our home is nicely nestled in the Woods on top a huge Sand Dune that OVERLOOKS beautiful Lake Michigan. Our home is not on the water - you will need to take a 3 minute walk down our driveway then a short venture on a path through the woods to get our beautiful Sand Beach. The sand on the beach is so clean that it 'squeaks' when you walk on it. You will absolutely love our beach! Relax and build sand castles with your kids.

House Details: When you are not out hiking trails or walking the beach relax in a vacation home that is ideal for large groups of family members and friends. Use 3 bedrooms, 1-2 'open concept' bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and sleeping for 12-17 adults and children.

While you relax in the great room by the Fireplace your kids or friends can socialize in the rec room with Ping Pong, Card Table, and Wireless Internet. Enjoy a family meal in our sun room with seating for up to 10 and 3 more at the snack bar.

Relax with a book in the cozy den area. Have a nice dinner using our charcoal grill off our back deck with incredible views of the woods and huge sand dunes. Visit the Crow’s Nest to get away from it all and take in the awesome views of Lake Michigan & the Park!

The Door County Dream Home and the surrounding area will call you back year after year.
