O'Connor Home- 36818 Esch Rd

Newer constructed home near the end of Esch Rd. just northwest of Luney’s Point. This home has a wonderful view of the Harbor light and old Coast Guard buildings at Whiskey Point, plus a large part of the interior of Beaver Harbor, Gull Harbor, Gull and Hog Islands, and the boat channel entrance to Beaver Harbor. It sits on a 1.75-acre parcel with 183.58 feet of Lake Michigan frontage. The beach is a combination of sand and stone bottom - not a perfect swimming beach but acceptable. This location is in a quiet spot just outside the harbor and yet only a mile away from the intersection of King’s Highway with Barney’s Lake Road and East Side Drive (2-1/4 miles on the road from the center of St. James). You can enjoy the quietness of the location and yet feel like you are almost in town. The view of the ferries, yachts and sailboats going by right out front and the harbor lights at night make it a unique homesite.

The house is 32’ x 44’ with a full finished basement exposed on three sides for a total finished living area of 2,816 sq. ft. The combination dining room and living room is open to the large, modern kitchen with hickory cabinets, lots of counter space, tile work, and snack bar. There is also a half bath behind the kitchen in the entry foyer. It has a wood-burning fireplace and a lot of glass on the lake side leading to a fantastic deck out front. There is also a master bedroom with a full bath on the upper level. The lower level has a family room with a walkout sliding door on the lake side. It has two guest bedrooms, one of which has a sliding glass door onto a large cement patio on the lake side. The second guest bedroom is toward the inland side of the house but with an exterior window and two double beds and two twin beds bunk style. The 3/4 bathroom (shower) downstairs is large and has an adjacent sauna room. There is also a laundry room behind the bathroom and near the second guest bedroom.

The owner has done a remarkable job of opening the view on the lake side of the house, and has also done a lot of nice natural landscaping around the house. To appreciate this home you really need to look at the 40 pictures on our website very carefully. With the raw land value at a $100,000 to $125,000 range this house is a buy because you could not clear a lot, put in a driveway, put down a 157-foot deep well, open the view and build this house for the $300,000 difference. In other words you can buy this house a lot cheaper than you can rebuild it.

Now reduced by $100,000 to $395,000
