Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: The story of Matt and Anne is quite a small world kind of story. Anne grew up on Elk Lake here in Elk Rapids, while Matt was what is know in town as a summer kid spending summers across the lake. Anne worked at the bakery, Matt visited the bakery; Matt worked out in the cherry orchard, Anne worked in the processing plant; Anne worked at what is now the Riverwalk Grill, Matt visited the Riverwalk Grill; Anne went to Michigan State, Matt went to Michigan State(2 years overlapping) and never met... Anne went to live in Chicago, Matt worked managing large construction projects and went to live in Washington DC for two years. One year to the day from when Anne returned to Elk Rapids, and 6 months after Matt returned from Washington- A mutual friend suggested a meeting and 18 months later they were married and 11 months after that little Harrison came along... We now reside on the first floor and spend our weekends at Matt's family's small resort on Elk Lake.

Why the Owner Chose Elk Rapids, MI, USA:
One of Matt's construction projects was the restoration of and addition to the Virginia Capitol Building in Richmond and found a passion for restoration. When this property was put on the market it seemed a natural fit as this house is on the national register of historic places along with being a Michigan Historic Site. We were living in the split level across Traverse Street and decided to make the jump and help this house to be what it once was for the generations to come...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a truly unique house in that so much of the historic fabric(floors, walls, windows, siding, veranda) is intact and in serviceable condition. It really is like stepping into what once was, with the modern conveniences to make it comfortable...
