This tranquil setting is located just 15 miles from Ann Arbor but a world away. Bordering the Pinckney Recreation area gives you over a thousand acres of state land to hike, mountain bike, play beach volleyball, and hunt. Silver Lake beach is less than a mile away and Hudson Mills Metropark is a short 5 minute drive. Hudson Mills has 7 miles of paved trails along the river and in the woods. Go to Hell and enjoy ice cream and putt-putt golf.
Year Purchased: 1957
About the owner: As a kid I have many fond memories of this place- Christmas dinner, Easter egg hunts, swimming and watching baseball on TV with my Grandpa. I was lucky enough to get to live here with my Grandpa for a few years while I was in college. I told him I wanted to buy the place-he thought I was crazy. Somehow it all worked out that in 2003 I got the unique opportunity to own this place. Everyday there are amazing encounters with nature and a peaceful and serene setting that renews your spirit.
Why the Owner Chose Pinckney, MI, USA:
Grandma and Grandpa Devine bought this property in 1957 and then built the house 3 years later.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting on the dock, kayak or lawn chair you are surrounded by nature and it is rejuvenating. Swimming in this lake you don't have any boats to worry about. You can just swim or float for hours and enjoy the serenity. Every season has its unique characteristics and each is dramatic and magical.
