Painstakingly constructed by the seller over a number of years, this home is an example of ingenuity in the use of reclaimed and repurposed materials. The metal roof was designed so that the it would not have to be shoveled during heavy snows. The home has baseboard heat, radiant heat in the living room area, and a wood stove. From the hardwood floors and counters that used to be in the 5 and 10 store in Mancelona, to the marble sink and claw foot tub in the master bath, to hardwood floors under the carpet in other the rooms, this house offers extras not typically found in homes in the price range. With 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, large living room, a full-length sunroom and a porch, you'll have plenty of space. The laundry houses the boiler, along with cupboards and shelving for storage. There are two bedrooms on the main floor and two up. The upstairs master is spacious, and enjoys views, over the back deck, of the towering trees. The bath has a clawfoot tub, with a shower wand. A track on the ceiling allows you to surround the tub with a curtain when you take a shower. The main floor bath includes a stall shower. There are two garages, both with door openers, that are connected by a service door. These offer plenty of space for your vehicle, or if you like to ride the trails, your ORV's and snowmobiles. There is also a lean-to in the outer garage where you can keep an abundant supply of wood out of the weather. Paths are cleared through the 2+ acre parcel, and it backs up to the power line, so you have privacy. You can also use 32' of the power line property for recreation. Located in the heart of northern Michigan's best trails, this will make a great full-time home, or a tremendous recreation getaway. The property has 1/8th mile along a paved county road and is on the school bus route. Spruce it up a bit and enjoy the best of northern Michigan recreation. Seller is willing to sell some furnishings.
