Located in the acclaimed Beachwalk Resort community in the Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan, just one hour from Chicago, this house ("Moondance") and its perfect central location is a Beachwalk favorite.
Unique among Beachwalk homes, Moondance has an open floor plan with a stunning cathedral ceiling perfect for hosting large family gatherings. Moondance has a large fully stocked kitchen with granite counters and glass tile back-splash along with all new stainless steel appliances. A large great room has seating for everyone, and porches and decks galore mean gathering spaces for the whole family, plus privacy when you want it. Indoor dining space for 16. Outdoor dining for another 16, plus a special outdoor kids table that seats 8. Bedrooms (including both ground floor and second floor masters) with all the right touches will suit couples, children, grandparents and last minute visitors. Main level bedroom with an attached bathroom. There is also a room off the dining room with two daybeds with trundles. The first upper level bedroom has a full bed and a twin. It shares a jack and jill bathroom with the second upper level queen bedroom. These two bedrooms also share balcony that over looks Childers Lane. The next upper level bedroom is a bunk room has an attached bathroom that it shares with master suite. Then there is the master suite with an attached bathroom that is shared with the bunk room and a private balcony that faces over the back yard. Moondance even comes complete with its own custom painted house golf cart (except in winter) for your use and enjoyment! Recently, Moondance' owners worked hard to finish the 1,000 square foot basement, which is now a playful rec room complete with 46 inch flat panel DVD player, and DirectTV with whole house DVR (there are five total in the house), and a multi-colored striped floor that kids love. (NOTE: The basement has 6 foot ceilings, and thus is ideal for kids or for watching movies, but it is not habitable space by code and thus it cannot be used for sleeping.)
In addition, Moondance is steps to everything Beachwalk has to offer: community private pool, private tennis, basketball, and beach volleyball courts, a short walk to Beachwalk's own Lake Kai complete with free kayaks and stand up paddle boards during the summer, custom sand castle playground and, of course, Lake Michigan's most beautiful beach. Unlike many rental homes, the owners of Moondance put much of the rental income they receive into upgrading and improving the property each year.
Most recently, for 2017, the owners invested in all new furniture for the great room, including three new couches, and added a second full refrigerator (if you are like us, you arrive with a week's worth of food and need somewhere to put it!), and replaced all the deck handrails for increased safety. This house has everything you could possibly want. You will not regret it.
No fire pit in the back yard
