Home Tour today is a Lake Michigan Cottage. The listing calls it a cottage. It is designed and decorated like a cottage, but its actually big house living on a lake. Nothing wrong with that, except it’s not mine. I want it and can’t have it. It would be lovely to live lakeside.
A bit of grand lakeside living is what you will see in this cottage home tour. But, not so grand like in ostentatious, no. It’s grand in style. Not too big and not too small, it’s medium, maybe just right. The asking price is grand though at $6,895,000.
The cottage is on Lake Michigan in Bay Harbor, Michigan. It has a total of 21 rooms. I think a housekeeper or two should come with new ownership. Six bedrooms with one of them sporting a boat-shaped bed. Seven full baths, fireplace, home theater, wine cellar, 1st floor master, and an 8+ vehicle garage.
This Lake Michigan cottage is in big snow country in Michigan near the top of the mitten, and has a luxurious paver driveway because it has snow melt; imagine that! I heard a discussion on the radio just the other day about people in Chicago want the sidewalks to have snow melt. Umm, no, that’s not going to happen anytime soon.
Welcome to Lake Michigan Cottage Home Tour. I could not resist dressing her up in a blue frame and adding a banner to enhance her raging beauty. I am liking this big cottage. The real estate property details say the house has a 100-foot u-shaped dock, swimming area, lounging area, and plenty of room for water toys. Just wait until you see the beds, the bedroom decorating, and colors; they are the star in this home tour.
