JUST REDUCED Tired of looking at the same old, cookie cutter, new house styles, then check out this treasure..vintage, mid-century modern home with a incredible 180 degree view of the channel with 61' of water frontage in Grand Haven's North Shore beach community. On a private road, this house is a short walking distance to the North, Pier, Lake Michigan, North Shore Marina (boaters), and the hiking trails in the Kitchen Dunes Preserve. And it's only a short bike ride to three county parks! This specially-designed house is spacious and airy, laid out with a good traffic flow and has lots of windows, storage and built-ins , as well as many unique features. Designed, built and remodeled by a professional civil engineer. This home is structurally sound with a artistic flair.It offers unique custom features you don't find in many of the newer builds...rough-hewn cedar paneled walls, slate floors, and exterior weather-stained redwood siding appropriate to the lakeshore setting. Inside, on the main level, the living/dining room enjoys entertaining views of the Grand River, and has access to a roomy screen porch and patio that are perfect for watching boats of all sizes (freighters and Coast Guard ships included!) as they navigate the waterway. The activity of Grand Haven's waterfront and state park are just across the River so you can watch it, but not have to be a part of it. The kitchen, also with a view of the River, has lots of cabinets and offers a unique quasi-open style, convenient to allow conversation with guests in the living/dining room area, yet allows for the kitchen mess to stay private and out of guests' view. Adjacent to it is a handy laundry, pantry, and a large storage area as well as outdoor access to the front patio, convenient for those outdoor meals. On this level, there is also a large family room and small den, which both qualify as bedrooms. There's also a 4-piece bath, more closet and storage areas, as well as an attached one car garage with additional storage. Upstairs are three bedrooms, a full bath, and a huge storage area. There is the potential to reconfigure walls to create a upstairs master bedroom with en suite bath if a buyer is interested in that. The front yard, kept natural with local grasses and wildflowers, provides a xeriscape habitat for interesting flora and fauna to watch all year round. A path leads to the River. In the rear of the house, the deep lot accommodates a detached garage with room for a car as well as a large workshop which can be converted into a studio or another stall for vehicles. A small lawn and patio offering a view of the dunes to the north, is where you can enjoy fireworks displays during holidays and Coast Guard Festival. Although this home is move-in ready, a new owner may want to upgrade some features and add their own TLC touches. For the right buyer, this property offers something different from other houses on the market....it has history, style, character and charm, and has the ability to quickly become a cozy HOME, rather than just a house. Quote from HGTV's Love It or List It: "There is no substitute in newer homes that can compare to the quirks, beauty and character of an older home".
