"Life is just a bowl of cherries.." when you're on Good Harbor Bay savoring sweeping views of the Manitous. Lake Michigan exposure is West so add 365 days of sunsets to your bowl as you catch warm sun during the day and breezes at night. Year-round 3 bedroom/2 bath endearing older home preserves that "old cottage atmosphere" with natural stone "now gas" fireplace, knotty pine walls & some hardwood flooring as it reflects & continues to offer days of utter relaxation & comfortable living. 1.3 acres boasting 150' of private sandy-bottomed Lake Michigan on partially wooded deep property offering privacy, large storage shed (could make a great bunkhouse) & two-story garage with stairs leading to lighted upper level that can become whatever you'd like to create. Old-fashioned family-sized screened porch provides a spot to while away the hours, read, lounge, chat with friends & family, cards & games, you name it & is surrounded by extensive decking. Patio sports an open fire pit & space to enjoy dining el fresco. Whether working in the large family kitchen or gathered around an over-sized table, you again are presented with fabulous views of the lake. Laundry room accessed immediately from outdoors & gives you room to wash & dry as well as additional storage. Baths have been remodeled (tile), new Hunter Douglas window coverings are in place & handy driveway takes you to a second entry & water's edge. 30 minutes from Traverse City & you're within arm's reach of all Leelanau County has to offer-great little resort towns, restaurants (Art's Bar for a beverage & lunch?), Fishtown in Leland (EZ to hook), sand dunes to climb, National Lake Shore beaches & trails to walk. All this and more just hop, skip & jump away! You'll find a friendly spirit in this home which has been well maintained, is clean as a whistle & ready to welcome YOU! Consider the possibilities of a northern Michigan home!
