This beautiful year round home has over 2000 square feet of exquisite living space and is a short walk to the shores of Lake Michigan. Designed in Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style it features wide open spaces and cozy side rooms. French doors separate living areas and stained glass accents the windows. Step onto one of the decks to enjoy the colorful gardens that surround this half acre private yard. No shortcuts were taken in furnishing the home blending the comfort of Crate and Barrell with treasures from local antique haunts and nearby art galleries. Cozy up on winter evenings with steam shower and wood burning fireplace after cross country skiing or touring local wineries. Fall offers bike trails, apple picking, bonfires and nearby Notre Dame football. Fly a kite or play bocce ball on the beach in the spring and float on a raft or body surf in the lake on a warm summer afternoon. The home is ideal for family time or romantic getaways in any season
Water Sports: While our family enjoys the simple life of sand and water we do recognize that some people like to boat. There is a marina in New Buffalo, 5 miles south of our property that offers docks for your boat. There are jet skis available to rent in Michigan City, Indiana, and the local boating store in New Buffalo rents canoes and kayaks. If you do bring your own small boat you may store it in the dunegrass near the base of the stairs while you are renting. We have some rafts, boogie boards and beach toys for your use in our garage.
Off Season or Rainy Day Fun: We are never at a loss for a new art gallery or antique store to explore in Harbor County. The town of Michigan City to the south has a large outlet mall for the shopper in your group. East is Three Oaks, known for its theatre, and north is Bridgman, home to Warren Dunes State Park and the famous 'Tower Hill'. They have well groomed cross country ski trails, marked hiking trails and a toboggan slide in the winter. Apple and fruit farms are dotted throughout the county for berry picking and several area wineries offer tours and tastings. There are massage and day spas in New Buffalo and restaurants for any palate. You'll need more than one trip to the Harbor County area to do it all.
