The Byers Home at 25950 Oak St. (Formerly the Barry and Marylee Pischner home) (Between Bob McDonough’s and Tim & Denise McDonough’s Homes)
This approximately 1200 sq. foot two bedroom, two bathroom home is something special. It is very much like the summer homes built in the early 1900’s at Bay View east of Petoskey, Michigan. It is less than 25 years old, but its interior finishing and nautical motif makes it seem like an 1880’s ship captain’s home. It has however, all of the modern construction features of a brand new, year round home. Its most important attraction however, is its view of almost all of Beaver Harbor. This is a guaranteed view (It supposedly will never be changed.) The master bedroom and the kitchen, dining area, living room (Great Room) both have a lot of window walls looking out over a large deck on the Harbor side of the house. This home has a very large basement with steps down into it on the Oak Street side of the house. The slab/foundation has already been put in place for the construction of a garage on the north shore side of the house. The location right in the middle of the town of St. James with its view of Beaver Harbor, and its close proximity to everything in town make this offering unique and well worth the asking price of $395,000.
