Between Big Platte and Little Platte lakes, this sustainable-energy, three bedroom, updated home has a large cedar deck, privacy fence and a 34x25 garage. Check out the exceptional location in the heart of Benzie recreation, within walking distance of accesses to both Platte lakes and a short drive or pleasant bike ride to Lake Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore park. This year-round home features a heavy aluminum roof, new Andersen windows, new efficient ceiling and attic fans, fresh paint for a bright interior, a new kitchen, new Pergo XL flooring, new bedroom carpeting and new linoleum in the laundry room. Owner has made the home energy efficient and is happy to assist you with its systems, including solar panels on the roof, a three-panel solar array on the ground, and an outdoor wood furnace (2017) which supplies the radiant heat loop in the crawlspace, (with ability to convert to boiler if natural gas heat is preferred). Individually-controlled electric baseboard heating in all rooms (except bathroom) provides comfort according to need. An under-floor heat pad in the bathroom is on a timer to ensure happy feet. Separate "point-of-service" water heaters ensure hot water only where you need it. The vehicle entry gate gives access to the backyard for big chores. The garage storage room is large enough for tools and tinkering. A no-step ramp leads from the garage to the main floor of the house. Stash your firewood and outdoor gear in the two deck boxes. Bake a shortcake using strawberries growing on the berm. This is a sunny spot with shade trees and a lush lake microclimate.
