This inviting cottage sits on .25 acre with 50 feet of Little Glen Lake frontage. Steps away are miles of trails on Alligator Hill in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and it’s a short bike ride to Lake Michigan. On the first floor, the three bedroom two bath home has a formal entrance, open living/dining room with a raised large stone fireplace, a full kitchen with a sub-zero refrigerator, pantry, two guest bedrooms, laundry room, terracotta tile floors, handcrafted cherry wood hutch, track lighting for artwork, and a double set of sliding doors out to the waterfront patio. The second level master suite has a private entrance, covered patio, wood floors, and mirror lined walk-in closet. The en-suite has a skylight, tiled floors, and glass block shower. Through French doors you find a study and sitting area with water views from two large banks of windows. There are two large work areas and access to an enclosed porch and an open patio facing the water. A ramp walkway to the second floor makes it easy to transfer luggage. In-floor radiant heat warms the first level, with radiant baseboard heat upstairs. Four wifi thermostats can be controlled remotely, so the house will be warm when you arrive. Easy to maintain landscape, lighted stone walkway, woodchip path, custom stone refuse enclosure to keep out animals, breezeway, and gravel parking reinforce the northern Michigan cottage feel. The best views are from the end of the dock with a large seating area to watch sailboats during the day and stunning sunsets at night. The property comes with an eighty-foot dock, natural gas grill, storage shed, and exterior cameras, and a Sonos music system can be included. An exterior hot water faucet allows you to create your own skating rink. If hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, clear water, starry nights, and relaxing at a cozy fireplace sound appealing, this is the home for you! The residence conforms to the maximum buildable lot size and township septic requirement.
