An exceptional Lake Michigan home for the discerning buyer who is seeking lake frontage, privacy and security. Located within a gated community of seven (four full-time) residences on a beautiful rolling wooded natural setting providing stunning panoramic views of the lake. The community is bordered to the north and south by conservation reserves precluding any future lakefront development and accessible year-round by a rustic fire lane reminiscent of Up North. Located along the Sunset Coast of Southwest Michigan, 5 minutes from South Haven, less than an hour from Grand Rapids, 2 hours from Ann Arbor and the Chicago Loop and less than 3 hours from the Westfield/Carmel/Zionsville area. Curl up with a book and enjoy the window bench overlooking the lake, or take your coffee and watch birds from the 16x22ft screened porch. The finished, insulated 2.5 stall garage (with avail. plans for expansion), Eagle windows w/lifetime warranty, two-sided fireplace shared by the living space and the main floor master, and wood burning stove in the finished lower level have provided a warm, secluded year-round residence where the current owner have lived for years. The lower level large mechanical/work shop area includes a separate storage room. The home sits well back from from the bluff so erosion is not an issue here. Outside features large decks, natural surroundings, and an outdoor shower off lower level deck. The home also features 2 water heaters and a dual stage water filtration system. Home is in immaculate condition and has been lovingly cared for. Other year-round neighbors to the north and south are barely visible. Stairs to the beach are no longer there but can be easily replaced.

The lake facing dune includes 11 lots totaling 220+' and we along with our neighbor to the north each have a one-half undivided interest in the beach frontage. Although both of us have each had our own stairs in the past, we have been talking about putting down a shared set of stairs along the property line separating our respective lots where the homes are located. We have been waiting to see what happens this summer in terms of the lake levels. Lake levels have gone down about 25 inches since the highest in 2020.
The HOA is voluntary and there are no deed restrictions. If the buyer opts to join, there is a buy-in fee of $1,500.00 and annual dues of $600 ( which has remained unchanged for over 10+ years). This includes taxes on the HOA owned lots at the entrance, maintenance of the access lanes and gate, snow removal and a remote control for the gate. Every member homeowner is a director and is covered under a liability policy for any damage suits brought against the HOA. The HOA currently has a capital reserve of a little over $20,000. The only assessment that we have had in our 34 years here was for the installation of the electric gate.
