About the Property
550 Square Foot 'Home' With Private Entrance, Kitchen And Bath.
This apartment is newer construction and includes slate flooring, bay window and gorgeous view of the naturalized acreage in the backyard. There are two main living areas to relax in: a spacious bedroom and 20x14 living area. The décor is neutral and features interesting little owner finds from their antique-ing, garage sale-ing and DIY-ing. Tons of storage is at your disposal if you’re considering an extended stay.
The kitchen area is fully equipped with everything you’ll need to make yourself at home: full-size refrigerator & apartment-size stove, pots & pans, dishes & stemware, cooking utensils, serving bowls & silverware. We even throw in the coffee & fixin’s to help get you going in the morning.
Your bathroom features full-sized tub and plenty of room to move around. A bench seat and plenty of plush towels are included. You also have access to the laundry area.
Did we happen to mention the house sits on nearly fourteen acres? It is set back from the road to afford you plenty of privacy, yet in a residential area so you’re not isolated by any means. You’ll love sipping your coffee on the porch in the morning, hanging out by the campfire at night, or taking a quick run through the fields and woods behind the house when feeling the need to get some quick exercise in.
Oh, and there’s a pool, too! You’ll want to bring your suit so you can enjoy the private backyard area that features two BBQ grills (both charcoal and gas so you don’t have to choose!), spacious deck and five foot in-ground swimming pool. (For safety reasons, no one under 18 is allowed in the pool area without a parent or guardian present.)
While we're not environmental fanatics, we do what we can to minimize our impact on the planet. You'll find gardens, rain barrel, lots of naturalized area and solar panels on the property. We do compost and recycle, and encourage our guests to do the same.

Belleville is the perfect, unique location only 15 minutes from a big city. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful setting while enjoying a campfire and watching wildlife in their natural habitat. 5 minutes away is the quaint downtown area with enough to keep you busy for the evening, including restaurants, library and small-town stores.
At night you're only minutes away from some of the best nightlife in this area of the state.
15 minutes away is Canton: big box stores and franchises abound along with local treasures. You'll want to check out Sze-Chuan Restaurant and The Bowery Grille & Pub if you're hungry, and Canton is also home to an Ikea.
25 minutes away is Ann Arbor, home to the infamous University of Michigan. Ann Arbor is one of the coolest towns around and a designated Tree City. Their public transportation system is convenient and easy to use. You'll want to explore U of M's campus and the many interesting shops and restaurants that surround it. Hit up Main Street, REI and the Jamaican Jerkpit for starters.
35 minutes away is Detroit. Enjoy nationally-ranked sports teams. The Riverwalk is a MUST SEE if you have time - rent a Segway or a bike and spent hours riding along the waterfront trail and up the Dequindre Cut. You could spend the whole weekend in Detroit visiting all the museums, art institutes and historical places that abound.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Dave and I have known each other since our senior year of high school. We spent senior weekend together camping with a group of our friends and haven’t been apart much since. We've been married 36 years, and most of them have been pretty darn good. Our daughter lives in Seattle; our son and his family live in Las Vegas. His family includes our first and only grandchild, whom we miss seeing on a regular basis now that they're no longer residing in Michigan. We love being empty-nesters, and we also love traveling the country to see the kids (who have also resided in Chattanooga, Texas and Virginia Beach.) I just got my own motorcycle so we can both ride together or alone. We adore – well, at least I do – our Great Dane, Memphis, and are on our 8th Jeep. Guess you could say we are trying to enjoy life while we can. 'We have our health and family. Life is better than we deserve!'
Why the Owner Chose Belleville, MI, USA:
We have lived in the Belleville area for over 25 years ... it has been an amazing place to raise our family and grow older together. It affords us the best of both worlds ... rural setting to be close to nature yet close enough to the city so that when we want to mix and mingle it up with people, we're just a short drive away. It has been a pure joy to hop on the bike (motor or pedal) and explore the surrounding area. Everything you might possibly want or need out of life is just around the corner from here.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
This property was the perfect place where we could care for our aging parents. The house is a ranch design, and we were able to create separate living quarters for them out of the attached garage. Now that they no longer need it, we've decided to share this comfortable space with others. It's important to have a nice, clean, secure location while away from home. It is so much better than a cold and maybe clean hotel room or the awkwardness and perhaps inconvenience of staying with friends or relatives. We've used VRBO numerous times and always found it a great experience.
