LAKE MICHIGAN - RUSTIC BEACH COTTAGE JUST NORTH OF ST. JOE. On a winding road, in a gated community, through densely forested dunes is a simple rustic bungalow on a low-bluff, picturesque site just waiting for your story to unfold. Enjoy miles of sandy beach, hikeable dunes and trails, enchanting star-lit skies, sounds of nature, easy beach access with no steps or trams and a short jaunt to South Haven and St. Joe just minutes away. Well-maintained with a low maintenance exterior and many improvements, this 3-bed, 2 bath walk-out on a .5 acre double lot has a 112' of frontage and a solid start to something amazing. Original oak hardwood floors, knotty pine plank walls and a split stone fireplace set the scene for this relaxing holiday getaway. More recent improvements include: NEW Water Heater (10/17), NEWER Owens Corning roof (2012) with premium dimensional shingles and snow and ice guard on the entire roof; NEWER driveway (2014); NEWER furnace (2013); Updated electrical (2000-); and New snack bar and office cabinets with solid surface counter tops (2008). This home has been meticulously maintained and improved in great detail throughout the years. What You Won't Get - Necessary sea walls to protect dunes from collapsing; Rip raps of concrete and jaded rock; Steep cliffs, trams and exhausting stairs; Nearby public parks and public access, lodges and club houses; Road noise or marinas... Over a quarter mile of densely wooded forest and dunes through 36 protected acres in conservation separate the cottage from the rest of the world. On any given weekday throughout the summer, it may seem as though you have the beach all to yourself. Approximately 15 minutes from Southwest Michigan Regional Airport (BHE), South Haven, and St. Joe, one hour from Grand Rapids, approximately two hours from Chicago, and a little over three hours from Indianapolis and Michigan's East side.
