I just received word that this cottage, located a very short walk away from Pier St beach, will soon have a price reduction. The current list price is $725k, however, the new asking price will be $695,000.
From the SWMRIC MLS property description, A historic Lakeside landmark, this wonderful cottage, a block from the beach, was designed by 19th century architectural giant William LeBarron Jenny for his brother Dr. Frank Jenny and his wife. Constructed in 1912, the current residents are only the third family to own the property, which is still known as Jenny House. Loaded with vintage charm such as traditional cottage windows, original pine floors and a masonry fireplace, the current owners took what was wonderful and made it better with updating. The guest house was refurbished, the rear screened porch was rebuilt, expanded and now opens to a lovely stone patio. Inside, the kitchen was remodeled, the wiring updated, central air added and internet access installed throughout. Lush gardens surround the home with color through the seasons and the sounds of Lake Michigan can be heard in the distance.
Lakeside is located in the heart of Harbor Country, in between Union Pier and Harbert. The nearest beach to this cottage is Pier St Beach. This is one of Chikaming Township's road end beaches. Since there is little to no parking at this beach entrance, the beach is never crowded. Cherry Beach in Harbert, is the one municipal beach with parking, so those coming from further away in the township, use that beach.

"Paul represented us to purchase a home in Union Pier. We found him through his excellent web site. In my opinion, there is no better web site for buyers, looking in the Harbor Country area. His information is comprehensive, accurate and focused on buyers. Paul did an excellent job of listening to us and what we wanted before he met with us for our first and only tour of homes this was important to us because we didn’t want to spend a lot of time looking at homes. We saw 9 homes on a Saturday afternoon. 7 of the 9 homes were right in our price range and met all of the criteria that we had communicated to Paul. The other 2 homes were nice to see as a comparison. In the end, we loved 3 of the homes that Paul showed us and made an offer on our favorite. Within 10 days of meeting Paul for the first time, we signed a contract for our new home in Union Pier. Throughout the next 3 weeks, before closing, Paul was outstanding. He served as our representative at all stages of the pre-closing process. And, he called us periodically to remind us of important issues that we may have overlooked like bringing a certified check to closing. Paul’s knowledge of the Harbor Country area and his complete commitment to his clients make him an oustanding buyer’s representative. We highly recommend him. We’ve been in our Union Pier house now for almost 7 months and we have loved every weekend there, we’re Chicago residents. I’ve bought and sold several homes in the past 10 years and, this is the first time that I’ve liked a broker enough to take the time to write a testimonial."
