9186 S Redwood Newaygo, MI 49337$259,000 - For Sale - $165 per sf
How do you describe the perfect lake house? Many say that it needs to be a cozy, warm, welcoming home with great space to entertain family and friends inside and out - complete with a spacious lawn, multiple decks to sit and relax, lots of lakeside windows to let in the summer breezes, storage for the lake toys with a boathouse and docks to accommodate, and a comfortable setting for all to enjoy. Are we on the right track? This home has it all, and it has been very well taken care of by the same family since the 1950's. It's very hard to find a newly built home with as much character and detail as this - every nook and cranny has another feature - built-in shelves, built-in benches, and storage cabinets are found in almost every room. The lofted living room with tongue and groove ceiling, floor to ceiling stone fireplace chimney, and double sliding doors to the covered back porch is one of a kind. The double lot on the lake with no steps to the water, along with expansive outdoor entertaining spaces make for a great place to host events - there have been multiple weddings on this shoreline! Meticulous landscaping and gardens, updated utilities as well as windows and doors, two large decks on the lake side, and a long entry/mudroom area with built-in storage cabinets are all features that magnify the charm and practicality found throughout this home. In addition, the sizable workshop/boathouse has an attached finished studio that could be used as an office or a guest house as it is heated and cooled separately from the main home. The seawall has been updated recently, and the docks are included as well! With so much historic detail, and added features throughout the years, 9186 Redwood would make a great summer getaway, or a lovely year round home for many years to come.
