About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Big Ten Bungalow is located on the beautiful sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. The house is located in the acclaimed community, as seen in Coastal Living March 2005.

Big Ten has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The master suite has a queen bed and a newly renovated bathroom with custom "spa shower." The guest bedroom also has a queen bed. These two front bedrooms have immediate access to the covered upper deck, which includes tables and chairs, and a large hammock for relaxing out of the sun. The third room is set up for kids, with bunk beds and a twin bed with trundle (good for 4 people) great for all ages. The house is child friendly with high chair, pack n' play, crib mattresses, and ample toys. Bikes, strollers, beach toys and a golf cart(needs to be rented).

On the first floor, the family room is equipped with a queen sleeper sofa, high cathedral ceilings, and a fireplace. This room has immediate access to the surrounding back deck, for dining al fresco. The first floor is an open plan, with eat in kitchen, island, living room, and dining room that comfortably seats 12. The house also has stereo with CD, DirecTV, VCR/DVD, extensive movie collection, video games, and outdoor speakers.

The front lower porch is screened in and has a dining table for six with surrounding rockers. The back porch has large Weber gas grill, and umbrella covered dining table that seats six. For outdoor dining, we have installed a fold down buffet.

The community added a new pool for 2005, and features various amenities unique to our community. Highlights are the new basketball court, tennis court, playground, cafe, and man made lake that is ideal for family fishing.

The house is located less than one and a half miles from the Michigan City Zoo, The Blue Chip Casino, and Lighthouse Place Outlet Mall.

Keywords: The house is located in the award winning resort community.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We love to share our house when we are not using it. Our children have grown up in the house and we love the neighborhood in the summer. The fall is so pretty with the leaves turning and a much slower pace. Please make yourself at home and enjoy the house as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Sheridan Beach (Michigan City, IN, USA):
We wanted to have a place to get away from Chicago and just enjoy our family. We love to entertain and share it with family and friends. We have celebrated every holiday here over the years and look forward to spending time in Beachwalk and at our house every chance we can.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have toys for all ages- bikes, strollers, beach toys, equipment for tennis, basketball, fishing, baseball. Beach coolers, chairs, towels, and tables. The back porch has a grill, table, and fold down table to entertain. We have extra space if needed.
