This quaint prairie style house with its 42 foot covered porch is located down a winding tree lined street 500 feet from the public beach on Lake Michigan. There are no bluffs right here. You can sit on the beach and see miles of sandy beach and bluffs as if you were in the Caribbean.
You can also walk for miles on the sandy beach and enjoy the different shades of turquoise and blue of the lapping waters. Some days you can enjoy the frothing of the rolling waves and great tubing. The house is set on one partially wooded acre. It is a quiet neighborhood of one acre lots with very little street traffic. Great for a peaceful retreat. It is a great relaxing time, starting with breakfast on the porch, to lazing in the hammock with a good book, and then watching the sunsets followed by a bonfire with somores. Lots of swimming during the day gives you a great rest at night with lots of stars visable.
Come sleep in the new organic queen size bed with all cotton sheets and down pillows for the best dreams. This house is all 'green, environmentally sustainable, and healthy'. It is a great feeling. As well, it is all on one level with wide door ways to acomodate the handicap.
