1044 sq. ft. Classic older cottage that has been completely modernized except for original beadboard siding on the interior.  This two bedroom one full bath home was brought to Beaver Island on a barge from Lake Macatawa near Holland, Michigan where it was a 1920’s summer cottage.  Since coming to Beaver Island, it has been added to and significantly upgraded with a new roof with 30 year shingles, Hardy Board shingle siding, new wiring and plumbing and fully insulated to be a year-round home.  Two additions were added to the main level for a third bedroom and a South side alcove that is all glass off the living room.  Everything is set for a second bathroom to go upstairs between the two bedrooms.  A covered front porch was added that could easily be screened in and a large South side deck was also added to the house.  The original siding was stripped off and good insulation was placed between the studs from the outside before the new liner and Hardy Board shingles were installed.  All new vinyl windows were put into the house.  This house has two lots on Bay Avenue.  This house could be kept as a guest house and you could build a new house on the extra lot to the South.  Next to the house is a large, very beautiful apple tree that is still bearing heavily even though it is well over 100 years old.  When you are standing at the edge of the road on the front lawn, you can see the water of Beaver Harbor just to the South; Bay Avenue almost extends straight into the Harbor with the boat launch at Beaver Island Marina North.  At this location you are a two minute walk from the Marina, a three minute walk to Dalwhinnie Restaurant and McDonough’s Market.  Walk down the street to see sunsets over the Harbor most of the year.  There is a little finishing left to do on the new first level room and the alcove windows, but all materials are onsite for that finishing.  A large storage shed with a roll-up garage door is near the back of the lot that the house is on.  This house comes totally equipped with everything you need to move in.  The two lots have a value of almost $80,000.00 and the cost to build this house today would be around $334,000.00.  The asking price of the house is therefore less than half of its replacement cost at                 $225,000.
