Rare and unique find on an incredible stretch of Lake Michigan in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Located adjacent to Empire Beach, this beach home is not only situated along the shore of Lake Michigan, but is only 100 ft away from South Bar Lake, as well. The possibilities for fun are endless! Kayak, surf, swim, fish, jump off the end of the South Bar dock, rock hunt, hike, bike, frequent one of the playgrounds, or catch an incredible sunset. Inside, two bedrooms (plus an additional lofted bedroom) and one and a half bathrooms await. The light, airy, beachy feeling living, dining room, and kitchen area welcome fresh lake breezes with stellar water views. Extensive decking is the ideal area for enjoying morning coffee, an evening glass of wine, or having a cookout. Wrap up the evening with s'mores by a fire on the beach. Turn this darling property in to your dream, beach getaway! Walk-able to everything downtown Empire has to offer - including restaurants, ice cream, shops, and a gas/convenience store. Recent improvements include but are not limited to: a brand new cedar shake roof, a new hot water heater two years ago, and a solid, large shed that is only a few years old. Sold furnished with few exceptions. Excellent rental history.
