This country colonial, built in 2001 is situated on almost 1 acre, yet seems like a large acreage parcel. With just a 10 minute drive to downtown Traverse City, you are close to all of the amenities that come with this nationally recognized region, and of course, all of the outdoor activities we are known for.
This is a 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with recent updates. The lower level is pre-plumbed for an additional full bathroom. Located in the heart of the acclaimed Boardman River Valley, this scenic, paved country road is as quiet as it gets being this close to Traverse City. The lack of vehicle traffic and light pollution makes this the perfect homebase or perfect getaway.
The property boasts 4 different outdoor sitting areas. The lower-level patio is perfect for those tempting summer evenings illuminated by the in-ground fire pit, giving the feeling of a remote northern getaway. Maybe you would prefer the covered front porch on a rainy day while you sip your favorite bevy. There is a front patio for those who choose to dine outside with a spectacular county view or grill out and dine on the back wooden deck.
Even with the lack of foliage in the winter, the views have a beauty of its own. If you enjoy wildlife, this is the place for you. There are many species of wildlife abundant including frequent overflights of Bald Eagles.
