You’ve viewed those vivid Pure Michigan television ads. Experience it first hand at non-motorized Briggs Lake less than a mile from downtown Brighton and at the entrance of 4000 acre Island Lake State Park. During the season, a kayak and rowboat are available and included if you are an experienced boater. Twenty minutes to Ann Arbor (U of M), 30 minutes to Lansing (MSU), 15 minutes to Novi, Farmington, 30 minutes to Livonia, Northville, Plymouth and 45 minutes to downtown Detroit, the Oasis is truly central with that "up north" feel.
The Oasis has three levels- each with individual bedrooms to afford privacy and togetherness while simultaneously overlooking Island and Briggs lakes. It is currently set up with three bedrooms and is tastefully furnished with antiques, yet updated with contemporary features- the Oasis is a serene and comfortable environment for those with upscale taste.
The top floor offers exquisite sunrise and sunset views and features a lovely bedroom with couch, dresser and full-sized bed. It also offers a private business center with Internet, computer, scanner, and printer.
The street level entrance opens into a living room followed by a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub; master suite with king sized bed, a well-equipped, high end stainless steel kitchen, and semi-formal dining room complete with silver, china, and crystal. This level further extends to a large porch complete with Weber grill, table and seating for 6.
The lake level offers a bedroom with a wraparound porch, private entrance, queen size bed and spectacular water view. This level serves as an additional gathering point for the Oasis with gas fireplace, game room, large bar, ¾ bath and audio- visual capability with large screen, high definition television and 5.1 surround sound.
All this is surrounded by a landscaped yard complete with private dock and fire circle. Guests are invited to use the house Rowboat for 4 or Hobie kayak for 2 complete with sailing kit. For maximum comfort this property further offers central air conditioning, whole house pedestal emergency generator, and off street parking for 4 vehicles.
The Oasis is a four season property offering foliage color in the fall, cross-county skiing, ice fishing on the lake during the winter and miles of snow mobile trails in the 4,000 acre Island Lake Recreation area. For skiing/snowboarding the Oasis is a mile from Mt. Brighton. For golf there is the Jackal in the spring and summer as well as mountain biking trails, hiking trails, and of course multiple fishing opportunities. There are also additional golf courses, restaurants, shopping, antiquing, etc. all very close by.
