This charming single family home sits on its own private, white sandy beach in New Buffalo’s exclusive Riveria community. The property encourages you and your family to enjoy the outdoors, especially the beach and Lake Michigan. All 5 bedrooms are on the same main level as the kitchen and living room. Just a short bike ride or drive to downtown New Buffalo and a 75-minute drive from Chicago, its location provides the ideal summer getaway.

Sitting in the sunroom, gazebo, back porch, master bedroom or anywhere in the main living area, you will experience fantastic views of Lake Michigan and its spectacular sunsets.

The home’s open floor plan features a large kitchen and main living area with a wood burning fireplace. The main floor also includes a brand new master suite, a second master suite, 3 additional bedrooms, 3 full updated bathrooms, and a fantastic sun room off the kitchen with a dining table that seats up to 10. The 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).

Nothin Dune boasts ultra high speed wireless Internet throughout and a state-of-the-art Sonos sound system, which allows you to wake up to your favorite Pandora station. A large grassy backyard, outdoor patio, gas grill and gazebo provide a place to sit, cook, watch the family or enjoy a drink during the sunset. It’s big enough to play a game a whiffle ball or setup a badminton court. The finished gazebo is a great place catch a snooze in one of the two day beds or read a book as you enjoy the lake breeze. From there, a well maintained staircase leads you down to the private association beach where you and your guests can swim, play beach volleyball, read and enjoy Pure Michigan!

Also, please always be respectful to our great neighbors. No weddings or events more than 10 people allowed.

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