869 N South Long Lake Road Traverse City, MI 49685

Property Description

First time on the market Long Lake waterfront! Owned by the same family since the 1930’s, this quintessential lakeside cottage is ready for a new steward to enjoy the many wonderful facets of the property including one of the absolute best swimming areas on the lake with a gradual sandy bottom for approx 200′ before deep water. The conditions are perfect for a 120′ dock and the boathouse is there to store water toys and fishing gear. Behind the 2-car detached garage is a “back” garage which can house extra boats or serve as a workshop or studio. You will never tire of basking in the gorgeous western exposure all day long, ending the day with stellar sunsets then transitioning to sitting around the fire pit under the stars. No shortage of fish or other wildlife including the local loons, swans, ducks, and bald eagles who are always a pleasure to behold. Inside, the vintage home is walled with knotty pine boards that have been refinished and a cozy fireplace made of hand selected stones from the area. 2 Dutch style doors add charm and when opened on top, allow lake breezes all the day through. Large picture windows and an absolutely charming breakfast nook provide an ever changing elevated view of the fabulous lake. Two large decks in front and back of house let you choose between sun or shade while you are having coffee, reading, or visiting with friends. This is truly one of the last gems on the lake and will be enjoyed by your family for generations to come.
