Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a Registered Nurse living in one of the southern suburbs of Chicago. I have 4 children and 10 grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose New Buffalo, MI, USA:
I have enjoyed the shores of Lake Michigan since a was a small child. It has always been a dream of mine to have a lake front property. When I turned 50, I realized that this dream was not within my budget. I started looking at homes that I could afford near the lake within an hours drive of my primary residence. This property was brought to my attention and I knew it was for me.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is in a residential area right off of Whittaker on Clay Street. We are 8 blocks from the New Buffalo City Beach, and walking distance to many restuarants and shops. It is a small, but comfortable home.
