Everyone needs peace and tranquility in our busy lives today and here is your chance to have your own sanctuary on 56 acres only 10 minutes from Marquette in Chocolay township. This home is still owned by the original owner who took great pride in the quality of this fabulous home. The owner was a local contractor and this home is one solid dwelling and is sure to please anyone who desires a great family home, maybe a hobby farm or just somewhere to NOT hear anything after a long day. This home is custom built brick and cedar and offers so much great square footage plus the most beautiful acreage you’ve ever seen. A perfect mix of beautiful fields and meadows, very mature hardwoods all at the end of your private driveway. This home features very large rooms with so much original character like the exposed wooden and rough cut beams. Tons of natural light from every room! The kitchen is loaded with solid cherry cabinetry, a perfect island to gather around, sub zero fridge and built in oven/range and the views! No one will mind doing dishes anymore! Off the kitchen is a convenient half bath and back entrance with laundry and mud room area. The formal dining room has hosted many holiday and special dinners and is adjacent to the kitchen so if buffet style is your type of gathering, then you’re all set. Step down to the living room with wall to wall, floor to ceiling windows for a breathtaking view from every direction. But the outstanding attraction within this home is the lower level to upper level (3 stories) hand laid stone fireplace. Upstairs is where you’ll find two very large bedrooms; one being the master bedroom with floor to ceiling windows and its own sun porch to enjoy your morning coffee or maybe an evening with a good book watching the deer in your field. There’s a big walk in closet and the master bath is huge, 14 X 10 featuring plenty of counter space, storage and a bath tub. Down the hall is another large bathroom with tile step in shower and then the other bedroom that is quite large, featuring two closets and has the capability to “walk through” to the master if ever needed. And of course, the awesome views! The lower level walk out has an additional bedroom (window but not egress) huge storage room with an actual bank safe, mechanical room that is neat as a pin and wonderful square footage to finish off your family room. This space has walk out doors and an egress window, is insulated with concrete floor and a fireplace, you just pick the wall & floor finishing’s! Outside is where you’ll find the massive brick garage / barn that can hold all your vehicles and toys ( at one time housed his semi dump truck!) along with a separated 1 car garage and has an upper loft area that is perfect for lots of storage or maybe a future apartment? But the enormous maple, oaks and pines is what you’ll really admire as well as the beautiful perennial gardens with stone pathways and the high ridge to look down upon.
