History of the area: In May 1927, Chicago real estate developer Frederick H. Bartlett purchased 3,000 acres of lake front lands from the estates of local owners. The development, which included five miles of shoreline on Lake Michigan, stretched from Michigan City to Dunes State Park. Bartlett's concept was to create an urban resort community. In 1933 Frederick H. Bartlett sold all of his northwest Indiana properties to his younger brother, Robert Bartlett. Robert touted the community and its attractions with the promotional flair of a born salesman. He constructed a school, a hotel with botanic gardens, a golf course, a beach front casino, a riding academy and a theater. In 1935, Robert Bartlett purchased 1933-34 “A Century of Progress”, Chicago World’s Fair and barged 4 homes to the beach front community. These 4 homes are still standing and they are in various states of renovation at this time. Our house was built in 1933 with a combined style we have named, 'Mediterranean Tudor'.
Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore: We love this area because it is surrounded by a national park. There are many great trails to bike and hike on. Along the Lake Front Drive, and then meander through the swamp trails searching for birds, foxes and snakes on Beverly Drive. On the other side of Kemil Beach Rd is the Indiana State Park with more miles of trails, and quiet beach.
The Beach: The beach is sandy, stretching for about 10 miles from Indiana Dunes State park to Mt Baldy in Michigan City. One of my favorite things to do is bike along the lakefront in Bevelry Shores for about 3 miles without houses to block the view. I love swimming on a hot night while watching the sun set over Chicago.

Why the Owner Chose Beverly Shores, IN, USA:
We instantly fell in love with this 1930s Mediterranean -revival Tudor like house. After a few years of renovations and projects, we are pleased with our hardwork. We love our small town that is surrounded by a national park including swamps and beaches.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is colorful, artsy, and has lots of windows. You can see deer sitting in front yard sometimes, you can swing on the hammock under the stars, you see the birds clamoring for bird feeder. On summer nights, we love to have a bonfire on the beach or in the backyard. In winter, we like to climb the icebergs, cross country ski, and hike on the frozen trails and beach.
