SOLD! Ultimate Lake Michigan Beachfront Estate


This stretch of beach between Gills Pier and Leland is one of the most beautiful and sought-after locations on Lake Michigan. Tucked away in a private setting with 426 feet of frontage and 7.22 acres, this beachfront estate lies between multimillion-dollar homes. Here nature has bestowed its most lavish gifts—views of the Manitou and Fox Islands, sunsets over the lake, a flowing stream and a dense forest.

The main house is craftsman style, with one level living, an open floor plan, a main level master suite; a laundry mudroom leading to the two-car garage; a full bath off the hall; great kitchen layout with a stainless island, a walk-in pantry, and of course beautiful lake views at every turn. On the upper level you’ll find two guest rooms and full bath. A notable feature between the guest rooms is the open loft, flexible space with a lake view to the west, and a balcony to the east. Designed by the architect owner, and built by Easling Construction, this comfortable home includes a gazebo, a spacious studio/storage area above the two-car attached garage, a workbench alcove, a detached one car, and an exterior storage structure.

Then there is the 1940’s cabin, on the original family campsite. This simple utilitarian charmer has wood floors, a wood-burning stove, a kitchen, two sleeping rooms and a bath. Beneath the foot bridge over the stream is the remnant of a water wheel that once pumped water to the cabin.

Upgrades to the main house include new refrigerator, hot water heaters, 2014 forced air furnace. Some personal property is included in the sale.


Located between Leland and Northport, this property has been owned by the same family for more than 80 years. 7005 N Manitou Trail, Northport, MI


This is the last, best, opportunity to own an impressive measure of Lake Michigan beachfront with a well built and beautiful home, privacy and tremendous natural beauty.
