Vintage homestead surrounded by the Sleeping Bear Dunes national park system! This turn of the century home is surrounded by protected national park land consisting of sugar sand beaches, beautiful forests, & rich farmland and is just around the corner from world renowned Pierce Stocking scenic drive. Many local attractions are also easily accessible from this location including the historic villages of Empire and Glen Arbor as well as the gorgeous Heritage bike trail, various hiking/walking trail heads, and several fabulous Lake Michigan shoreline beach sites. The property is a rural paradise tucked just off the beaten path with an open sunny lawn, outbuildings (including an antique barn), plenty of space for gardens, and will enjoy perpetual tranquility as the neighboring land will never be developed. This home is a historic country charmer that has enjoyed the same family for generations and is ready for a new steward to restore it with the current charming footprint, or to be recreated into your year-round dream home or Up North retreat. Lovely pastoral setting with lots of potential in one of the most popular locations in Leelanau County.
