This inviting cottage sits on a quarter-acre lot with 50 feet of frontage on Little Glen Lake. The backdoor leads to nine miles of trails on Alligator Hill nestled beside the remarkable Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake shore and is a short bike ride to the shore of Lake Michigan. The property has a formal entrance, open living/dining room with large stone fireplace, and windows to look out onto beautiful water vistas. The first floor contains a full kitchen with a sub-zero refrigerator, pantry, and two guest bedrooms, a full laundry room with storage closet, a handcrafted cherry wood hutch, track lighting for artwork, and a double set of sliding doors leading to the waterfront patio. The second level master suite has wood floors, private entrance, covered patio, and walk-in closet. The en-suite has a skylight, and a glass block walk-in shower. Through French doors, you find a study and sitting area with two banks of lake-facing windows. There are two large work areas and access to an enclosed porch and an open patio facing the water. A ramped walkway up to the second floor makes it easy to transfer luggage. Keep your feet warm with in-floor radiant heat on the first level, with baseboard heat upstairs. All four thermostats throughout the house can be remotely controlled. The yard has easy to maintain landscaping, a lighted stone walkway, and wood chip walkway, and breezeway. The best views can be seen from the end of the dock with a large seating area, which provides the perfect spot to watch sailboats during the day and stunning sunsets at night. This property comes with an eighty-foot dock, large gas grill, storage shed exterior cameras, and a Sonos music system can be included. The residence conforms to the maximum buildable lot size and township septic field requirements. If the idea of hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, clear water, starry nights, beautiful landscape, and relaxing at a cozy fireplace sounds appealing, this is the property for you!
