Year Purchased: 1975
About the owner: My husband and I purchased this property in 1975 and then spent 15 years gathering ideas before we consulted architect Robert Wood of Harbor Springs for the final plan. The goal was to maximize the view, keeping the interior neutral and allowing the windows to provide the artwork. We felt the grand-kids should focus on outdoor and creative activities while at the Lello House and therefore made a conscious decision against having a television. Unfortunately retirement incomes do not allow for ever increasing property taxes which make it necessary for us to rent a few weeks every year. Otherwise we would be there ourselves!
Why the Owner Chose Harbor Springs, MI, USA:
The view! The trillium, morels and wild flowers in the spring; the freshness of the breeze; the beach in the summer; the beautiful fall color; the surprising enchantment of winter. Cross Village has a wonderful neighborly small village culture. Did I mention the view?
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Lello House is well suited for multigenerational vacations. We have a crib, high chair, and 2 booster seats.
