Take in a round of golf, or practice your marksmanship while enjoying the great outdoors, private chefs, family photographers etc.. we will do our best to ensure you have a vacation that is one to remember.
A complete, two year, renovation (taken down to the studs) concluded in August 2018. Meticulous care was taken to preserve many of the original design details of this 1930's era home, coupled with the addition of the amenities and conveniences of today's modern home.
This unique property sits on 1.5 acres, sleeps 12 very comfortably, and offers guests the opportunity to gather and socialize, coupled with a plethora of space for privacy and serenity. The "open floor concept" of the main floor offers abundant seating, and provides ample space, fostering mingling, and memories-a lovely retreat awaits!
The 2,500 main floor is ADA compliant. The main floor consists of: a family room, a designer/gourmet kitchen, a half bath/powder room, a den/bedroom with a full en-suite bath with large shower/shower wand, a stackable, full size washer/dryer, and the living room.
The designer gourmet kitchen boasts a duel fuel professional range with six gas burners, a double wall oven, two sinks, three dishwashers, and a quartz counter top island that seats 10.
The Dining Room has a table that seats 10, and also offers an additional 12' Sliding French Door that opens up to a terrace with additional outdoor seating and a new, six burner Weber gas grill; this terrace overlooks the spacious east facing grounds, that are ideal for outdoor movies (screen and projector on site), ping-pong, giant Jenga, cornhole bean bag toss, spikeball, volleyball, badminton, croquet, giant yahtzee, relays games, and more.
The second floor is designed as two separate zones/wings with two bedrooms in each zone; it facilitates extra quiet and private sleeping arrangements. The two zones/wings are adjoined by an original, circular staircase. Each of the second floor bedrooms (2 kings, 1 twins, 1 queen) offer a memory foam mattress, soft linens, a flat screen TV, ceiling fan, ample closet space, and an en-suite marble and quartz bathroom. The Master Bedroom and Bath is also ADA compliant.
While most people come for the sandy beaches and clear water of Lake Michigan, this property is close to downtown Chicago, Wine Country, and Notre Dame (the home was owned by famed ND Coach Frank Leahy).
The natural beauty will take your breath away. There are miles of beaches to walk, woods to explore, horses to ride, skeet to shoot, wine to be tasted, golf balls to chase, water to paddle, trails to hike, bike and ski, and parks for bird watching and picnics. Sail and boating charters on Lake Michigan let you take in the spectacular sunsets or bring home a fish or two for dinner. Kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards bring you up close and personal to lake, and river life. You can sit back and relax and take it all in, or jump in and find your own adventure.
When you've had your fill of the great outdoors, head into the great indoors. Try your luck at a casino, indulge at a spa, shop 'til you drop with both outlet and specialty boutique shopping, take on a match of Tennis, or catch local and top entertainers spanning the spectrum of music, theater, opera and film. Local museums provide a rich history of the region. Don't forget the top-rated restaurants, Art District, Antiques, and more.
"The Beach Brigade" has been in our family for 50 years; we have made lifelong memories and treasured family traditions with our four generations that gather there. We offer this unique, limited opportunity, to share our home, with your family. We know you will love our quiet beach neighborhood.Get the full listing »
