As the summer heat continues to swelter, this Lake Fenton gem hits the market with time to enjoy the season.
With 517 feet of water frontage, this Fenton gem on the market offers year-round views unlike any other in all of Michigan.
The house on Lake Fenton at 2350 Crane Road is listed at $1,550,000 with Shelby Scott of Prime Real Estate and Associates.
“You won’t find another home like this in Michigan,” Scott said. “You have to take a bridge to get to the house (over the wetlands) with ponds on each side. You hear the frogs and crickets sing throughout the day and night. Turtles and cranes live all around you, flying with their giant wingspans living among a natural oasis.
“When the windows are open, you can hear the wind blowing through the cattails on a cool day breeze. You don’t even feel like you’re on a super busy lake. This property is very peaceful.”
This 4,700-square-foot house features 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths and one half bath, as well as a loft suitable for an in-home gym.
A wraparound trek deck makes entertaining simple, Scott said.
The two-story, open concept residence, which was built in 2003, has panoramic windows throughout the first floor and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace that wows any visitor as an accent to its 15-to-20-foot tall floor to ceiling reach. The gourmet kitchen features a double oven and is only steps away for all culinary needs.
There’s one bedroom on the first floor that faces out to the lake, and has an astounding sunrise view, Scott said.
A second living room can be found upstairs with a sliding glass door leading to a balcony that makes you feel like lake royalty. The master bedroom is one expansive open concept room on the second floor with privacy glass block half-body sized walls to separate the bathroom.
“It’s breathtaking. It’s peaceful,” Scott said. “It’s the seller’s favorite spot in the house. It sits up high, and you can admire the wetlands. It’s really pretty up there.”
The home, built on several cement pylons, does not feature a basement or a crawl space, as Scott said, “It’s floating.”
Scott tells prospective buyers they will experience spectacular views from many angles all around the house with more than 500 feet of lakefront beauty.
There is direct access for your boat to truly make this a Fenton gem.
The deck wraps around three-quarters of the home, giving plenty of space to entertain. There’s also a side yard of flowerbed garden, shed and a grassy area that’s perfect to enjoy time with children or pets, she added.
The property is only a nine-minute drive to downtown Fenton.
When driving home from work, you’ll drive through a private, covered bridge and pathway that bends and leads to your slice of paradise before parking in a two-car attached garage.
“After a busy day on the lake, you can relax in your indoor hot tub or enjoy the sunset off of the master suite (upper private) deck,” she said “This home is definitely one of a kind. Your dream can become reality. Mother Nature is calling.”
