Offering my ancestral property from the 1860's and a once in a lifetime offer to buy to the public.
Surrounded by large tracks of wooded and undeveloped land (1000+ acres with 240 acres being in nature conservancy and 240 local golf course) makes my 2 acres in the middle a fortress. With a sunset view over big Platte lake off the front porch and the Platte river down the hill and the best trout fishing holes on 22 acres owned by the state of michigan along with a 4" well 240' deep with close to a perfect PH that is cold and sweet is just the beginning of what is offered.
This is a family compound and there is potential for more growth. Windsong has a LLC with the state and is conducted as a learning center. Zoned RP-5 rural preservation, it has a 1/2 acre perfect for a small estate vineyard, 60 blueberry shrubs are in and could easily be a CSA.
There is a studio apt in the milk barn that has been permitted and is part of a bnb business that generates my yearly income. Along with a couple of other furnished out buildings, a 3 car garage attached with workbench and storage. The upper barn has served as a potluck dining hall complete with reinforced floor for dancing and is now used as a classroom.
Not too long ago, $65k was made in improvements, like new roofs including the barn, septic, drain field, and inside, propane boiler/hot water heat, new ceilings, lights, doors, kitchen etc. This house has been lovingly cared for and attended to. My great grandfather was a mason and hand sculpted the mold that made the large blocks that made this sturdy home.
Across the road a 5k sq ft log cabin with 5 acres was on the market 3 years ago for 1.1 million. Last year a offer of 1.2 was turned down. This is a good neighborhood and investment. The old adage that it is all about location is true! There is no other place in the area being this close to the national lakeshore like this. As mentioned above, this is a once in a lifetime chance to own something this beautiful.
Honor was once the sport town of America and is considered the "gateway" to Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore. Situated in the middle of Benzie County, we are minutes away from Interlochen Arts Academy, Crystal Mtn Ski Resort and the many lakes, beaches and small towns.
