Updated, Crisp, Sharp. This lake house in the town of Sand Lake, MIchigan has been recently updated and possesses many modern touches. When you arrive, you will likely be surprised at how this unassuming home captures the heart and soul of your lakefront experience. Lying in the hammock overlooking the lake is an ideal way to soak in the afternoon. Water toys and a small sandy beach area await your fun-filled get-away experience.
This home is unique in that you enter the home at the main level (bedrooms) and descend into the living space below. The kitchen and living room are both on the lower level. The wooden staircase descending to the lower level is longer than average. (Please use caution with little ones or family with mobility challenges.) All the bedrooms are on the main/entry level. Each of the five (5) bedrooms are decorated to allow you to relax in comfort. Year-round, the fireplace (gas-insert) pulls your group together in the living space. It's idyllic to have a fire burning while looking over the lake when either the snow falls, or the kids are playing on the beach. Each season shines in its own right. Conveniences put the icing on a great experience. Having a separate workspace when traveling with family, or a waster/dryer is tucked in an ideal space are appreciated by many.
The outside deck faces Maston Lake. There are 2 ways to easily descend to the yard/beach area. From the deck, there are only three (3) steps, yet there also is a longer staircase between the garage and the home. Another bonus is that the yard facing the lake has ample space for basic yard games. Plus, grilling overlooking the Maston Lake can't be underrated. While neighbors are within sight, there is comfortable spacing between the lake homes.
Water toys are available for guest use, so fun is always around the corner at the Maston Lake House. It's always a great time of year to visit!
