6776 S Dunns Farm Road, Maple City, MI 49664  

Two homes, one a quintessential lake cottage, thoughtfully constructed in the mid 1920's and has been meticulously maintained. Patterned after a New England Meeting House design, the attention to detail is stunning, with "timeless" materials from the cobble stone foundation, combined split stone and cobble stone chimney/fireplace, beech flooring, fir paneling on the walls, bead board on the ceilings, hammered iron door hardware and light fixtures, classic cast iron kitchen and bath fixtures, true "divided lite" windows, and a 10x38 foot lake facing screen porch. A lovely spot to seasonally accommodate family and guests (featured in the Historic Cottages of Glen Lake hardcover book as "The Lerchen Cottage"). The main house, just steps away from the waters edge (totally reconstructed from an existing boat house in 1991 with influence from architect Bob Lange and the skilled craftsmanship Darrell Scott), you almost couldn't get closer! Three levels with the main level featuring a grand entry & lake facing master suite. The middle level has a combined living/dining/kitchen area with panoramic views across Big Glen Lake to the magnificent sunsets over Alligator Hill to the west, study/den (easily converted to a bedroom), and lake facing guest bedroom with a split access bath. The lower/third level family room could function as an additional bedroom element, adjacent, there's plenty of unfinished storage space, and a 700 sq ft boat house/heated shop area that could be further finished for additional living area. Outdoor living areas in this park like, 1.13 acre setting include brick walkways, beautiful perennial gardens, multi-level decking, brick fire ring along the lake shore, and plenty of yard to recreate in. Two detached garages, one of the early vintage variety features a small workshop area. Seller desires to sell essentially turn-key with very few exceptions and offers possession at closing.
