This is truly an exceptional property. A custom log home, made with 100 y.o. White Pine logs from Ontario, nestled in the woods, on 17+ acres, w/1700 feet of private frontage on the St. Joseph River, offering great fishing & boating. Typically, a property like this would be miles away, up north. This one’s less that 2 hours from Chicago. You can walk to restaurants, a movie, or the new YMCA in Niles, a town of 12,000. Shopping at big box stores is 17 miles away, in Mishawaka. And Notre Dame is just 10 miles away. The house itself is extraordinary, with ‘magazine quality’ interior design. Douglas Fir floors & ceiling, massive stone fireplace, limestone counter tops, and high end appliances. Amazing. And of course, there’s high speed internet & CATV, city water & natural gas.
Douglas fir floors are varnished. Ceilings are white washed. Main level interior doors are from a 100+ year old home in Buchanan, MI. Kitchen counter tops are from a limestone quarry in Wisconsin. Logs are massive, averaging 24″ in diameter, hand hewn and full Scandinavian scribed.
1,500 square foot guest quarters are above the garage. One bedroom, one bath, and large living space, with full kitchen. Natural gas, forced air heat, and AC.
3-car garage has radiant heat throughout. Electric and natural gas lines are buried.
