WHAT A VIEW! This home is located on Sanford Lake, but is just a short distance from Wixom lake...best of both worlds! The Chalet would make a perfect cabin, rental property, starter home or retirement home for a couple that was blessed with good mobility. A 36'x24' heated pole barn with 220 would make a great workshop, plus storage for your boat, etc. Vacant lot next door would make an excellent building spot. Inquire about Parcel 010-011-100-140-00 which is 1.18 acres with 152' water frontage. Own both properties - 3.3 acres with 316' waterfront.
Here is the view from the front door into the living room and across to the dining nook. Custom pine paneling installed by the homeowner has been hung with exquisite workmanship and gives a cozy feel. The living room is quite roomy and the open floor plan tends to make this feel like a larger home!
Another look across the living room ... this one is taken in the dining room and looking across to the front door. You can see how this room would hold a lot of furniture without issue. This is a home meant for entertaining and this living room is up for the task! So, bring in your sectional and big screen TV. It will look gorgeous against the pine backdrop!
Perfect use of the space under the staircase...this gas fireplace offers warmth and luxury for entire downstairs area. This fireplace is directly between the living room and kitchen making it enjoyable for either room.
A look at the gorgeous kitchen, which is plenty roomy! New cabinets and stainless appliances provide an updated look that will impress your friends when they come visit you at the lake! Glass front cabinets allow you to showcase your favorite serving pieces -- especially for your lake front entertainment!
Here is a shot of the kitchen taken from the staircase. Here you can really see the custom island. If this isn't enough counter space, there is another piece to the island in the utility room that can be moved into place. Bring it in when it's time for seasonal baking or when you are entertaining. Tuck it away when you want to maximize floor space for everyday living. Take note of the pots and pans storage above the island - an attractive way to show off your lovely cookware and save cabinet space.
Looking across the kitchen you get another look at the island and the stainless steel fridge. You also get a feel for how the kitchen opens up right onto the main level deck. What could be easier for lakeside meals than a deck right outside the kitchen space? Also, lots of natural light is allowed into the main living area of the home.
Just because it's a small house, that doesn't mean you have to eat your meals in the kitchen! This little dining nook provides a cute space for full meals or morning coffee. This picture shows a table for two but a bigger table would fit this space.
Come out of the kitchen! Once dinner is over, this is the perfect place for relaxing with a cool drink and watching wildlife. This is river living at its finest.
Looking back across the tiered main level deck into the kitchen.
One more look across the deck. This deck has so much to offer that it has to be photographed from several different angles to catch it all. Not only does it have two tiers, but it has a little side area for grilling. And, it has benching all the way around for additional seating or even sunbathing on a sunny day. If you are going to live on the lake, you may as well have really good outdoor living spaces!
Back inside ... we need to look at one more room before we head upstairs and that is the main floor bath. This home provides two FULL baths so your guests can be completely comfortable in their own bath space while they stay at the lake. And, what a space! The owner has poured his heart into this bathroom.
Workmanship and style are the order of the day! The stone backsplash, vessel sink and "pump" style faucet combine for a relevant and up to date look that fits right in with the cozy cabin appeal of this home.
Another look at this lovely sink and backsplash with an oversized bathroom mirror and lots of counter space.
The main floor bath shower is spa quality. Ceramic walls with stone look floor and etched glass door. You won't have to waste time at the lake updating your bath because it's all been done for you by the homeowner with the utmost attention to detail.
Upstairs has much to offer for you and your guests! This is looking from the patio doors across the loft area and into the master suite. There is easily enough room in this loft to use it as a second bedroom for friends and family.
Take a peek into your master suite. Adorned in pine, this room is definitely homey looking but it's NOT small. There is plenty of room for this king size bed (which is being sold with the home) and lots of room for additional furniture.
Another look at the lovely log bed.
The master bedroom features a walk in closet.
Here is the view from the master bedroom back toward the loft and the patio doors that lead to the upper level deck.
The master bedroom features two dormers - one on each side of the house. These dormers add natural light as well as making room for additional furniture and storage.
The master bath is a full size bathroom. It is fully lined with pine (including the ceiling) and ceramic tile on the floor is low on maintenance but high on quality.
Welcome to the upper level deck. The views from here are just amazing. You can see way up the river both directions! No neighbors across the lake so enjoy rich green in summer and lush colors in the fall. No matter what season, you won't have anyone looking back at you!
Another look at the upper level deck. This patio door opens into the loft which adjoins to the master suite.
Just a glimpse of your view of the river.
The main floor utility room offers plenty of room for the furnace, washer, dryer, extra piece of the island and lots of upper cabinets. This home really does have a lot of storage.
Byant ... recognized as a leading name in the heating and cooling industry. More evidence that this owner has invested in quality when it comes to this home!
View of home from the East, featuring the porch which runs the entire length of the East side of home.
Shed with electricity and an extra fridge which goes with the home. The shed also has an abundance of cupboard space for even more storage.
The polebarn is nestled in the woods on the drive into the property.
Immaculate pole barn with wood burning stove and 220 electrical
Pole Barn has several storage cabinets.
This is a look up the driveway from the road. You get the slightest glimpse of the polebarn but not the house. This gives a good feel for the privacy afforded by this special property. It is quiet and private and so unique. It offers woods and tree cover in the front, huge lawns around the house and at the lake level and a shallow beachy entrance into the water. There is honestly not another property like this one available on the lake right now! It's a unique little gem just waiting on the right owner.
