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.
