Welcome to this charming, renovated 1884 Charlevoix "valley" home. This home offers classic Victorian style with a huge open, wrap around front porch and screened back porch off the spacious family kitchen. With 4 bedrooms and 3 baths plus a large sleeping sunroom or studio, there`s plenty of room for family and friends. Stroll just minutes to Lake Michigan beach or downtown shops, restaurants and events from this home located on one of Charlevoix`s premier streets. The oversized lot offers lovely privacy withmajestic trees plus room for all your toys in a newer 4 car garage. House comes furnished with unique extras like vintage soda fountain back bar built into a drugstore near Detroit`s Cadillac plant and accented in the home by a custom period-style tile kitchen floor. Also included is a cherished rosewood 1880 Steinway console piano. The renovation in 1991 also included the addition of the stunning wood staircase, mantle and moldings rescued from an Ohio home of the same age and double-pane insulated vintage stained glass windows throughout the home. When current owners didn`t need a third bathtub, they recreated a scene from a favorite oil painting by Bertha Leonard and installed "Bertha", a bubble-bathing soft sculpture in their 1st floor bathroom`s claw-footed, newly brass plumbed, fully functional tub. Decorate for fun in this Charlevoix gem. Every style works, whether traditional, whimsical, craftsman, contemporary or a rich eclectic mix. Come see it all first hand. Life in Charlevoix doesn`t get any better..
