About the Property

Completely remodeled in 2015 - huge yard overlooking Lake MIchigan - sleeps 10

Welcome to Nothin Dune! This recently remodeled luxury lakefront family home is located directly on Lake Michigan in New Buffalo’s exclusive Riviera community. You will experience fantastic views of Lake Michigan and its spectacular sunsets while sitting in the sun room, gazebo, back porch, master bedroom or anywhere in the main living area .The large yard and location encourage you and your family to enjoy the outdoors, especially the beach and Lake Michigan. Just a short bike ride to downtown New Buffalo and a quick 75 minute drive from Chicago, you are close enough to town to enjoy the shops and restaurants while still having the feel of a summer getaway.

Many of the most exciting features of Nothin Dune are part of the major luxury remodeling performed in 2015, including but not limited to the following:

- An addition of a brand new, more than 500-square-foot master suite with awesome views of the lake, reading area, bar and fridge, master bathroom with large glass and stone rain shower and his and her vanities
- Brand new open concept kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances
- Larger backyard and renovated landscape architecture
- New outdoor grilling & prep station
- New fire pit overlooking the lake
- New built in year round hot tub - professionally maintained
- New hardwood floors and trim
- All new furniture in every room
- New carpet or new hardwood flooring in all bedrooms
- Renovated bathrooms
- New living room TV and layout
- New lighting and fans throughout house and bedrooms

The home’s open floor plan features a large kitchen and main living area with a wood burning fireplace. The windows and sliding doors are designed to let in the natural light, and Nothin Dune has a bright, clean appearance. All five well-appointed bedrooms are on the main level. These include a brand new master suite with a king bed that overlooks Lake Michigan, a second master suite with a king bed, and three additional bedrooms with queen beds(including a lakefront bedroom with a convertible Murphy bed). There are three full bathrooms, and a fantastic sun room off the kitchen with a dining table that seats up to 10.

The fishing-themed finished basement provides ample space for you and your guests to relax and watch movies on the new 58-inch HD television with surround sound (features include HD cable, Blu-ray DVD player, PS3 and an Apple TV). There is also a poker table(no smoking please).

Nothin Dune boasts high speed wireless internet throughout and a state-of-the-art Sonos sound system, which allows you to play your favorite Pandora station anywhere in the house with your smart phone. The outdoor patio and cooking area has a gas grill and a long dining table with enough chairs for the entire family. The yard provides a great place to sit, cook, spend time with the family or enjoy a drink while watching the amazing sunset. It’s big enough to play a game a whiffle ball or set up a badminton court. Please avoid walking on the dune itself, as there is plenty of grass to enjoy.

The finished gazebo overlooking the beach is a great place to catch a snooze in one of the two day beds, or read a book as you enjoy the lake breeze. A built in hot tub and gas fire pit are are just in front of the gazebo area and have great views of the lake year round. From there, a sturdy well maintained staircase leads you down to the private association beach where you and your guests can swim, read and enjoy Pure Michigan!

Please always be respectful to our great neighbors. No weddings or events of more than 10 people allowed and parking is available for four cars in the driveway only(no street parking please).

This home has provided our family many memories for decades, and we are excited to share it with you and yours!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Our family has been enjoying New Buffalo for the past 40 years. We first rented the home in the early 80s and later purchased it. We love New Buffalo and our lake house 'Nothin' Dune.' Like many families, we can't use it as much as we wish we could. So we look forward to sharing our perfect getaway with you!

Why the Owner Chose New Buffalo, MI, USA:
Why This Property? 1st Reason: It is literally right on the beach 2nd: It has a very large back yard for games and dining 3rd: We really care about taking care of the property. 4th: You can walk to town. Ride a bike down the road or walk the beach picking up sea glass. 5th: It's just the right size. This house is built to entertain and enjoy the beach with about 6 to 8 friends and family. But when you want a day out of the sun there is a movie theater like setup in the cool basement.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach is wonderful. Not rocky like some other beaches in the area. We have beach chairs ready for you too! Large backyard which is very rare. It really is a nice plus being able to play whiffle ball or bags in the back yard. We placed an iPad loaded with Sonos and Nest in the house. So you can control your favorite Pandora station throughout the home. You can also control the AC or Heat from the iPad if you don't want to get up. Dining Room with sunset views every night. Have dinner inside if the bugs are bad and you won't miss the sunset. If it's nice out we have an outside dining area and large gas grill setup for you. We have a Hot tub always ready to go so you can watch the sunset and enjoy a glass of wine anytime. It's really kinda nice. You should try it. Just try not to get too much sand in the tub. We care about your comments and are trying to put any rental money we make back into the home every year so it will keep getting better and better.
