Walker/Simmons Home 30670 East Side Drive
Beautiful Lakefront Home on Lot 5 of the Wicklow Beach Plat. This lot and house is near the very north end of the one mile of Wicklow Beach Plats lakefront lots; it therefore has excellent sand beach and bottom. This 1600 sq. ft., three bedroom one and a half bath home was part of a smaller home, that was built in the late 1980’s. The current owners redid the whole structure in 2009 so that every part of the original home and the new additions make it practically new. The side of the house toward the beach is almost all glass with beautiful views of the decks and patio and the sand beach and Lake Michigan. All of the decks on the lake side are new. It has a fabulous great room with the kitchen separated by a large countertop with seating. The dining room area and very large living room all enjoy the view of the lake. The sunrises and moonrises are breathtaking from the living room or the front decks. A new stairway takes you down to the sandy beach with Adirondack chairs at the bottom. This sand beach extends almost four miles North and two miles to the South; it is the best part of Beaver Island for beach lovers. The lot is exactly about one acre at 100’ wide and 440’ deep. There is plenty of room on the lot for two or three extra structures, including a detached garage. This house is “A Sleeper” (Realtors and prospects must see the inside of this house to appreciate it, with its decks and lake view.) The current value of the raw land is right at or a little above $85,000. At today’s cost of building on Beaver Island, it would cost you almost $520,000. to build this house today. That does not include the opening for the driveway and the house and the view, or the installation of the electric lines or well. In other words, to buy a raw lot in this subdivision and do what the current owners have done with their additions and improvements, you would pay at least $605,000. to reproduce what is being offered now at only $425,000.
