Golfing, Skiing & Boating; Shanty Creek House for Sale

Dreaming about owning a home in northern Michigan? If you are a recreation lover, you need to consider this Shanty Creek home. Nestled among trees in the gated community of Shanty Creek, the area looks more like a wooded wonderland rather than a housing subdivision. Beautifully planned the houses are privately nestled among rolling hills and forest.

Shanty Creek Resort is within minutes of your door where you can enjoy golf in the warm months and skiing in the winter. Lake Bellaire is minutes away where this community has access to a private beach and boat docking facilities.

As you come upon the house, you’ll notice it’s located on a wooded hill which allows for a walk out basement; the multi-level decking wraps all around the house and offers continuous wildlife viewing. Observe deer, wild turkeys, and a community of squirrels and chipmunks.

A two car garage is attached to the house but there is also a separate three car garage with storage. The home is beautifully landscaped with easy to care for plants.

Inside the Family Room has the most impressive stone fireplace I’ve seen! The ceiling is vaulted which allows for the stone fireplace to truly set center stage. The room has plenty of windows for undisturbed wildlife viewing and sliding doors to each side of the home.

The custom kitchen is large and has a cozy and elegant fireplace in the attached dining area. The main floor also offers a study, half bath, laundry room, access to the 2 car garage and a formal living room with a front door leading to the second level decking at the front of the home. The master, private bath, full bath and two bedrooms are located upstairs. The walk-out lower level is finished.

This is a beautiful home; I fell in love with the house and community when I stayed as a guest last summer. The mid-200’s price tag makes this home even more desirable! If you’re considering a second home closer to northern Michigan recreation and lakes – you ought to take a look at this one!

Here are some of the community pictures I took while visiting:

Here is a video my son took while we were walking past the front of the house. This was just a casual recording but I included it so you could see how beautiful the home and community are.
