This oversized cottage-style home has eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, and is 100 steps from the front door to the sand at the beach entry path, with no busy streets to cross, and views of Lake Michigan from upstairs windows. A slight dune rise, then you are at one of Lake Michigan's most beautiful private beaches, Sheridan Beach.
**NEW IN 2018** New paver patio, with 24 mature arbor vitae trees creating a serene and luxurious private courtyard. Inspired by a recent trip to Italy, we wanted to re-create the feeling of a breezy courtyard we saw in Tuscany. Soft lighting makes the space a lovely spot to linger with your tribe over dinner, or enjoy the warmth of the new gas fire pit.
This home is one of the original houses from the first days of Sheridan Beach and is over 100 years old. It has been modified quite a bit over the years, and has some stories to tell. Recent guests with kids have said they enjoyed discovering all the little nooks and crannies. There are several "M" initials around the house, which suggests to us that it belonged to one of the original founders of Sheridan Beach, William Manny. Returning guests year after year have appreciated the updates we have done to the decor in the main living areas, and enjoy the space and beach convenience this house offers. Four of the six bathrooms were re-glazed during the off-season, and the other two feature terrific 50s-style colors and tile - peach and green. It is an old house, with tons of charm and a fabulous location - perfect for a weekend or week-long stay, with great wifi, two HD TVs, double-ovens, three central AC units. Comfortable beds and linens for a good night's rest, new Sonos speakers for when you want to play.
Located just 60 minutes from Chicago, about 45 minutes from South Bend, this home is perfect for large family or group gatherings, summer vacations, weekend winery tours or Notre Dame sports weekends. The courtyard has three picnic tables with enough outdoor seating for your whole group. Another deck off the dining room offers a smaller space to watch the sunset. Quality Weber grill and kitchen equipment enables you to make the most of your time without worrying about bringing anything, and enjoy the tranquil beachfront lifestyle.
