Exceptional property that you`ll want to return to again, and again!
This exceptional $1.5 million dollar home is located on Long Lake. Long Lake is one of the most popular lakes in the area, for 2 reasons. The first reason is the water temperature and beaches (warm and sandy). Whereas some of the other lakes have become mucky or very shallow (for 100-200 feet) due to the loss in recent water levels over the past several years. Long Lake is also a large lake with islands, and large enough for all types of watercraft and fabulous fishing; whereas smaller lakes can only accommodate paddle boats or fishing boats due to the lake noise level while operating. If you water ski you're in luck!! There is a professional water ski course on Long Lake as well. The second reason for the high demand for Long Lake is it's one of the closest lakes to Traverse City. Approximately 5 minutes away. Expensive real estate for this area, and high demand.
This popular home has two single kayaks onsite that are available for rent. The home also features an indoor sauna/spa as well as an outdoor hot tub (that is private) to relax and enjoy the views. Other features of the home include TWO master suites, a home surround sound system, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances,flat screen TV, internet access, and fantastic gardens.
