Amazing Northern Michigan Homes: Lake Michigan Frontage in Northport
For this week’s Amazing Northern Michigan Home, Megan Viecelli and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson take you Northport to see an incredible home with 100 feet of lake frontage and some of the most beautiful views of Lake Michigan.
“We’ve got 20.85 acres with 100 feet of frontage adjacent to the property, rolling hills. We are sitting up high. We have lovely views of the Manitous, South Fox, all the way down to Pyramid Point,” said Kimberly Bork, an associate broker with Venture Properties.
With more than twenty acres, this incredible home has plenty of property and privacy that would be perfect for a homestead of horses.
“You do have a pole barn, which is over 1,700 square feet, so it is set up. It’s a Morton pole barn and it is constructed. The back half is set up for horses, so you could have horses pretty easily. There’s a little hitching post and you know, plenty of area to ride around here,” said Bork.
Once you get inside, you will find a beautiful, custom, four-bed and three and a half-bath home. It is situated perfectly to capture the sweeping views of the property and lake. The main floor has some fantastic living areas with cozy fireplaces, but the spectacular kitchen with its fourteen-foot quartz island, professional grade appliances and butler’s pantry steals the show.
“The kitchen and the master bath are freshly renovated in 2018. Beautiful. We’ve got a soaking tub in the master steam shower, everything that you’d want,” said Bork.
The master suite also has a private deck to take in the incredible Lake Michigan sunsets. The home’s lower level walk-out is loaded with fun features like the classic bar and a home theater. There is more room for fun on the main level, with a room that could be used for any activity.
“There is a large, extra bonus room that could be used for a game room. There was, at one time, a pool. You could convert that into, you know, just a giant recreation room, workout room, it has a beautiful mural of our vistas here,” said Bork.
While there may be a mural and dozens of spots to enjoy the view of your surroundings, a quick climb up the spiral stairs next to the home office takes you to a special place to view these vistas.
“We have a special feature of this property, which is the watch tower, which is very fitting. It has panoramic views of the islands and the water and the countryside,” said Bork.
