About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Beautiful 4 bedroom 3 bath 3,200 square foot home on Lake Macatawa's picturesque Big Bay. A large deck gives way to an expansive front lawn, sandy beaches, gently sloping waterfront and mature oak trees. Water has sandy bottom and slopes very gradually for about a half mile until reaching an overhead depth. Perfect for small children. Less than 1 mile from Holland State Park and the splendor of Lake Michigan. Home is built on two lots providing plenty of room for recreation and privacy. Built in the early 1950's and updated 6 years ago, the home retains the charm of a classic lakeside cottage with a large living room and field stone fireplace, knotty pine paneled study, breakfast nook and kitchen dinning room combo all with lake views. 2 of the 3 upstairs bedrooms also have lake views. Newly added master suite and bath as well as family room also have stunning lake views.

Holland is located in western Michigan - known for Dutch ancestory and the Tulip Festival each spring (second largest festival in the nation). Our home is situated on two lots providing ample space for recreation and solitude. The neighborhood is filled with an abundance of mature oak trees offering welcome shade from the summer sun. Our home is approximately 1 mile from the entrance to Holland State Park and the shores of Lake Michigan. Holland is a mid sized town - 10 miles to city center by car or bike. The city has a charming down town with many specialty shops and restaurants. Bike paths are plentiful and make for ease of walking, biking or roller blade.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Blaine Newhouse We are a family of 6 who enjoy living in Holland Michigan - especially beautiful Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan. We delight in hearing stories of how much people enjoy our home and the peaceful setting.

Why the Owner Chose Holland, MI, USA:
We purchased our home because of it's location on Lake Macatawa in close proximity to Lake Michigan. We were also attracted to the peaceful neighborhood with lots of mature oak trees as well as the double lot offering lots of space for recreation and privacy. The homes character, ample size and history were also something we found attractive.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan are available to us. We also enjoy the space of two lots - very uncommon in Lake front living. The fact that the home was both a classic cottage with knotty pine and field stone fireplace AND newly expanded and updated was a huge plus for us. The home has lot of character. We especially enjoy exercise - so walks to the Holland Pier or riding our bikes along Lake Shore Drive is something we often do. We were also looking for a water front home with a sandy beach and sandy lake bottom. This together with the gentle slope of the lake allows for kids of all ages to play in the water with far less parental concern.
