Property Details

Welcome to life on the water! 190 feet of waterfrontage at this 3 bedroom 2 plus bath custom-built home by Anderson Jarvey just waiting for you. So close to Houghton on Canal Road with Portage Township taxes. Built in 1982 with many updates including 12-15 inches of extra insulation to make this property very energy efficient. Step into grand views of the canal from just about every room in this well constructed home. The bay window in the large living room spans the entire wall. This room will be one that is cherished all year long. The kitchen will please with granite counter tops, stainless appliances, a tile backsplash, a tile floor, and the eat-in space overlooking the deck with views of the grounds and water. The sliding doors off the kitchen open to a L-shaped deck for outdoor living space. Off the kitchen is the mud room with the laundry which has double closets, cabinets and counter space. The 2 car oversized garage has pull down storage and finished floor that shines. To compete the main level there are 2 bedrooms, one with a water view and both having ample closet space. The main floor full bath has granite counter tops, a Jacuzzi tub and sits between the 2 bedrooms. Go on down to the lower level where you will find the arched brick wood burning fireplace as the focal point of the huge finished family room. The walls are covered in Ash wood for a very warm feeling. There is a corner bar with the copper top and has tiled counter areas. The patio door takes you out to the grounds. Another bedroom with those great water views is on this level along with a full bath, and sauna with large changing room and closet storage. Off the furnace room you have sweet workshop space which is located under the garage. Currently this is cold storage space but a heat run could easily be added. The grounds are watered with a lake water sprinkler system. There is an artesian well plumbed into the house with well tank ready to be re-hooked up if you would like to use this water system to water your garden areas. You will see this well as the small fountain in the yard. There is a permanent dock on the waterfront. Nice views of the bridge from the yard and dock levels. The yard is large and has a fenced garden area for your vegetable patch, a shed for lawn item storage and areas for you to explore and develop as you choose. Come take a look to see this one before it’s gone.
