Have I mentioned that I’m sick of winter? Yeah, well it’s still winter, and I’m still sick of it.
Let’s take a dreamy little trip to the beach. In Michigan. Yes, Michigan! (Ha ha, I’m probably the only one that will get it, but that was a Michigan tourism slogan several years ago!) Every couple of years we’ve been making the summer trip to our favorite fresh water beaches near New Buffalo, Michigan.
Last year about this time I did a post about a house that was for sale in New Buffalo. I decided to browse the real estate listings again for a good one to show you. It’s hard to beat last year’s house, but this one has it’s own charm.
This one is in Union Pier, MI, just up the road from New Buffalo. It’s listed at $2,350,000. Aw, come on, that’s only $10,000 a month, as long as you have a $470,000 down payment (20%)!
The listing says it was built in 1950, but the exterior kind of has a 1920 vibe to me.
I love all the rounded-top windows, and I’ve always wanted a rounded entry door (I don’t think this is the main entry though; it appears to step down into a bedroom).
It has nice open space.
The kitchen is updated.
Okay, I’m just crazy about these doors and windows! Even the bookshelf echoes the shape. And look at the sunlight on the wall through the doorway!
The hearth room has a wall of french doors which open to…
Looking from the beach back up to the house. Fabulous!
There are a lot more photos of this place in the listing, but don’t get any crazy ideas. I wouldn’t want to get in to a bidding war with you!
