This ultimate family home’s large yard and wooded acreage connects to the North Central Michigan College nature preserve allowing you to snowshoe, hike and run through miles of trails right from your back door. With all of this privacy and access to nature, it’s hard to believe you are only blocks away from the schools and downtown Petoskey. The traditional colonial exterior is charming, and the home’s many windows make certain the interior is bright with the sun streaming in year-round. This warm and inviting home has been beautifully appointed with cork floors in the newly renovated mudroom/laundry room area, and granite counters, wood floors and stainless-steel appliances in the recently updated dine- in kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious yet cozy family room with a wood-burning, brick fireplace. Pocket doors are available to allow for separation but typically the cooks can feel like they are in the middle of the action when the fun is being had in the family room. For more formal gatherings there is a sizeable, traditional dining room where wooden, French doors separate it from the kitchen, as well as a living room with cozy bay window nook. In the warmer months, the gorgeous screened in porch is the showpiece of the home. Have coffee or a glass of wine and watch the deer meander through the yard, host friends for dinner and dine al fresco, or have a quiet nap in the sun. This home is situated in an old apple orchard and the apple blossoms are exquisite in the spring. The second floor of the home has four lovely bedrooms. The focal point being the beautiful master suite where you can retreat at the end of a busy day. The room looks out over the back woods, has space for a seating area, a large walk-in closet, and the oversized private bath. The remaining three baths share a thoughtful bath where the double sinks are separate from the lavatory and bath/shower. The basement has large windows and is ready for your finishing touches.
