Incredible opportunity – over 500 feet of private lake frontage on Brooks Lake, a 293 acre all sports lake just 30 miles from Grand Rapids. Just 5 minutes from Newaygo, the Muskegon River, White Pine walking Trails and the Manistee National Forest, offering loads of added recreational activities. The lake house sits on its own peninsula, surrounded by water on 3 sides and is the largest lake front parcel on the lake and in the area, and it offers a park like setting with abundant shade trees and sunny vistas with amazing sunrise and sunset views of the lake from every corner of this lake house. Three bedrooms and 2 ½ bath walk out ranch, almost everything new in the past dozen years from roof to windows to appliances and upgrades throughout the home. This is a unique opportunity to be on an all sports lake close to Grand Rapids for a commute. There are two wood burning fireplaces, ample living space up and down for friends, good sized kitchen with new appliances, with a newly built deck on the lake side overlooking the expansive lake frontage; and the panoramic views of the lake are simply memorizing morning, afternoon, and evening. The garage has been fully renovated, top to bottom, and is extra deep, fully insulated, and heated. The landscaping is both attractive and allows for maximum use of the ¾ acre lot for family activities. The appliances stay and the wooden dock remains. Loads of parking for guests, and also comes with a shed for lawn care equipment. The furniture, aluminum dock, jet ski lifts, and boat lift are available for the right price. This is a wonderful turnkey opportunity for an Airbnb or a great year-round residence.
