Wonderful home on the North Shore of the Island west of the northeast corner with 300 feet of sandy Lake Michigan frontage (Lots 13, 14 & 15 of the Lookout Point Plat). This home sits on a flat plateau with a hill behind it and a set of steps descending about ten feet to a walkway out to a fire pit with deck just forward of the tree line and a fabulous stretch of beach. The view from this home’s living room and dining room or its large deck on the lake side is one of the very best on the Island. You look west toward Whiskey Island with Garden Island just across the pass between Beaver and Garden to the north. The view also includes Hog Island and the area to the east. In June and July you should be able to see both sunrises and sunsets on this property. From the main floor of the house you also see most of the beach for a 2,000 foot stretch.

The really special feature of this home is its privacy. The next home to the west is over a high hill between this home and the Wierenga home on Lots 16 & 17. Just east of the three lots that go with this house is a plat park with over 300 feet of width at the beach line. The next house to the east is the Hunting home on Lot 12 that is almost around the bend from this Linn home. You feel at the home site of this property that you own about 700 feet of frontage, and nothing can ever be built that will ever change this privacy with this property. More than half of the value of this property is its lake frontage which is currently worth a minimum of $270,000.

The home only has two private bedrooms on the main floor with a large bath, but most of the newly-finished lower level has a second bathroom and a large lake side room that could be used in many ways but also as extra sleeping area for children or guests. This lower level has a walkout basement with an under the deck sitting area. The house has a total of 2,180 sq. ft. of finished living area (28’ x 40’ on the upper main level). The upper level also has a large kitchen and a great room area that is dining room to the east side and living room to the west. An airtight combination stove/fireplace is in the middle of the living room area.

This property also has a really good, insulated 30’ x 40’ pole barn on the driveway in to the house and easily accessed from the house. The current owners keep their suburban and a lot of different boats in this pole barn. There’s also a kayak rack structure with a metal roof just at the edge of the tree line between the house and the fire pit/deck out on the lake side. This house was originally built as a year-round retirement home. The Linns are only the second owner. This setup would work year round for a family or retirees, or be your summer beach house, or a fabulous rental. You have to see the view from inside the house or the front deck to really appreciate it.
