Brighton, Michigan, United States
Work from a vacation home---live on a pristine quiet lake within an easy commute to Ann Arbor or Brighton. Recently renovated lakefront cottage on 160 acre no motor private lake with large yard. Our home has four bedrooms and three baths. The downstairs contains a living room with heat-throwing fireplace insert, large dining room that opens onto a screen porch, a well stocked chef's kitchen (Viking stove and fridge, concrete counter tops), huge mud room/laundry room, bath with shower, and lakeside bedroom with queen bed that opens onto deck. Upstairs are three bedrooms, all with spectacular south facing lake views and queen beds. The middle bedroom has a Murphy bed and converts to an office. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. Upstairs also has bath with tub, a common area, a television room, and a large loft area above garage with two daybeds, an electronic keyboard, a mini-fridge. Like the rest of the cottage, it has lots of light and functions as a quiet getaway office or playroom. Our property features a long yard leading to a lakeside fire pit, bluestone patio, and craftsman boathouse which houses kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Neighbors on both side are fantastic!!! Behind our property is access to miles of great hiking in the hilly trails of the Brighton Recreation area (1/4 mile to entrance). We are 23 minutes door-to-door to the University of Michigan campus, and even closer to UM's hospital. We have lovingly selected furniture and art to make every room comfortable and special. The lake has spectacular swimming and fishing. Every season here is great, including the winter when you can skate and cross country ski. The six mile hiking loop through glacial bowls behind the house as well as the separate biking trails are fantastic. The fall is especially beautiful. Though you will feel away from it all, you are only a mile from a Kroger and the famous Zukey Lake Tavern, and a short drive to Ann Arbor and Brighton. This really is a special place. We have a decent exercise bike in the garage that you might want to move into the house. Road bikes are available for your use in the garage. Price includes Internet (but not cable), mowing, plowing, and biweekly cleaning. Gas and electric paid by renter. The yard is not fenced. Open to dog with extra down payment and cleaning. No cats due to allergy. And no smoking, please. Many more pictures available---just ask!
