Like new 2640 sq. ft. year-round home built to last this family for generations.  It is a two story building completely finished on both levels and all above grade.  The house has three bedrooms, two full baths, and two half baths.  There are a total of 14 rooms.  This home was built to be a very energy efficient year-round home for retirees; it has 2 X 6 stud wall construction with excess insulation in the walls and overhead.  It has electric baseboard heat throughout plus an extra heater with an efficient propane fireplace.  It also has a lot of glass on both levels but high quality exterior vinyl, interior wood, Andersen windows.  The first level is all large square tile flooring and the second level is all laminate flooring that looks like wood.  This house was built in 2006 with high quality 30 year shingles on the roof.  The exterior is long-life cement board siding. It has a 5” thick white plastic deep well approximately 200 ft. deep.  The main feature of this offering is its location in the middle of the town of St. James on the second road back from the Harbor.  (Right near the East end of Back Highway and the Gallagher Avenue intersection)  It has a beautiful view of the North part of Beaver Harbor and Beaver Island Marina North.  It is a four minute walk to Dalwhinnie Restaurant, McDonough’s Market and Whiskey Point Brewery to the East and also a four minute walk to the Ferry dock and all of the businesses on Main Street and the Museum and Daddy Frank’s.  If you have a boat you could probably put it at St. James Marine right at the end of Gallagher Avenue and watch your boat from your dining room or the upstairs living room.  It has a detached one car garage to the South side of the house that had a new metal roof put on it in 2021.  With a lot value of right around $50,000.00 and today’s building cost of 2640 sq. ft. you would spend well over one million dollars to build this house and garage.  It’s therefore really priced right to sell at only $569,900.00
