Amazing Northern Michigan Homes: West Bay Shore Drive
Privately perched on a hill overlooking West Grand Traverse Bay is a stunning home with a wonderful layout and some great features.
Andrea Ludema and chief photojournalist Jeremy Erickson take us there for this week’s Amazing Northern Michigan Homes.
It’s a landmark along Bay Shore Drive – the home on the hill with the beautiful, tiered landscaping. But there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to this fantastic property, like it’s 400-plus feet of waterfront.
“It has over 200 feet of private frontage on West Bay,” said Angela Mia DiLorenzo, a real estate broker at Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices. “It also has over 200 feet of private frontage on Cedar Lake. The house offers approximately five acres. What makes it special, too, is when you walk down to the Cedar Lake part, you go through a tunnel trees.”
When it’s time to leave the lakeside, you can enjoy the views of West Grand Traverse Bay from your vast living space.
“So it offers five bedrooms and three bathrooms,” DiLorenzo said. “The the primary bedroom is very generous in size and it has a nice primary bathroom. That actually all the bedrooms are generous and size. The two bedrooms that are upstairs are kind of cool because you can walk right out onto a patio which sits in the front of the house, which makes it also unique. It’s a nice quiet place to sit and read a book, drink a cup of coffee, have a glass of wine. It’s a nice spot for your guests to hang out.”
With the large kitchen and living areas, spacious bedrooms, the private setting and all the waterfront you can handle, it’s a perfect place for entertaining family and friends and enjoying lake life.
“The biggest thing here is the lifestyle,” explained DiLorenzo. “The lifestyle that this property offers is you can’t find it anywhere else. I don’t know of another house around here that has the water frontage that this one has on West Bay, and Cedar Lake. And the house is generous in size, it’s laid out wonderfully, it’s open, and it’s bright. It’s a great home.”
