160' of private frontage on Torch Lake! Considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, you will be awe struck by the incredible elevated views from this rare waterfront property. Being offered on the market for the first time, this vintage home has the character & charm of a true Michigan lake house that you simply cannot find among the cookie-cutter styles being built today. The interior consists of three levels, each w/ water facing decks and in addition to the fabulous views, the genius designer of the home had the good sense to utilize solid Cedar as the finishing material both inside and out. This type of wood is gorgeous & virtually indestructible as is evident by its nearly new condition some 48 years later giving this house "solid bones". Main floor has two bedrooms, galley kitchen and great room w/ stone fireplace. Upstairs you’ll find two additional bedrooms, one w/ its own balcony and eave-to-eave storage! Lower level features large family room w/ brick fireplace and a wall of glass sliders to take in the azure blue scenery. You will love being nestled among towering white birch, maple, & oak trees w/ plenty of serenity all around and also enjoy the quick drive to the much sought after Elk Rapids Schools and neighboring towns & villages to enjoy great dining, parks, beaches, shopping and more. Lake living at it's best!
