Property description


This dramatic 2700 SF, two-level retreat is in the historically significant 1885 Chapel Building in The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, the site of the former Traverse City State Hospital. Over the last ten years, the site has received national and international press for its unique story of rebirth and renewal into a mixed-use neighborhood.

A private stop elevator delivers you to a fully furnished and all new condominium with 3 queen bedrooms on the main level, each with a private bathroom. A large loft with luxurious sleeper sofa and 2 twin beds is perfect for quiet reading or room for the kids, also with a full bath and a jet tub. All beds feature luxury linens and covers.

Historic bricks and beams and dramatic open ceiling angles combined with new flooring and an abundance of wood finishes to create a space that is stunning and remarkably comfortable. The suite has been completely renovated with new heating and cooling, all new Kohler fixtures, and a convenient washer and dryer for longer stays. The fully equipped kitchen has maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, under cabinet lighting and a prep sink, English china, ample cookware, and more. A 60' flatscreen with cable TV and blu-ray player is in the living room. High speed guest Wifi included.

The Kirkbride Suite is an unforgettable launching point for everything that The Village and the Traverse City region has to offer.

About The Village at Grand Traverse Commons:
The Village is the ongoing redevelopment of the former Traverse City State Hospital, a remarkable historic campus with a mix of shops, eateries, offices and condominiums.

Literally steps away from Kirkbride Suite are charming boutiques, world-class dining, popular cafes, coffee shops, bakeries and award-winning winery tasting rooms. A grand historic lawn and arboretum is located on the east part of the property, ands a quaint village green with two bocce courts is on the west side. Surrounding The Village are hundreds of acres of parkland, historic barns, a botanical garden, and miles of Up North hiking trails.

Traverse City is a four-season playground for anyone who loves the Great Outdoors and Great Dining -- and autumn only sharpens its beauty, adding color to the forests and spice to the air. It's perfect weather for a stroll on the beach, a shopping adventure, a round of championship golf, or a tour of the beautiful wine country on the nearby Old Mission and Leelanau peninsulas. And when the winter snows begin to drift across this glacier-carved landscape, the entire region becomes a sparkling white playground for skiers, snowmobilers and snowshoe hikers. 

There are 180 miles of beaches where you can wander as far as you like…romantic lighthouses and picturesque lakeside villages…glacier-sculpted hillsides covered with splendid forests and dotted with lush orchards and more than 20 acclaimed wineries…world-class golf courses home to innovative regional cuisine ....and a pedestrian-friendly downtown with over 150 boutiques, galleries and restaurants. It’s the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, a shopping adventure, or an unforgettable family vacation.
