The property formerly known as Rustic Villa Cabins\Livingstone Studios offer a unique opportunity for someone who wants to preserve and restore a piece of Beaver Island history while enjoying one of the most beautiful spots on the island. These cabins were built on a former native American settlement. Three cabins, each unique and built with hand hewn Island logs by Carl Felix and sons,( a boat builder who moved his family to the island from Chicago in the late 1940's). The first cabin was built around 1950, using Carl's boat building skills in the construction technique. Three of the four original cabins were built as rentals, but in 1993 one of them became the new home for Livingstone Studio (gallery\gift shop), and five years later another cabin became a second gallery. In 2014 the property was divided, and three of the four cabins (plus wood shed) remain on the property offered for sale. Zoned for commercial use, someone could preserve and restore these beautiful, unique little buildings, and potentially add a year around home or additional buildings at the back of the property. Ninety feet of Lake Michigan waterfront provides one of the most beautiful views of the harbor and town. This lake frontage is a rare wetland for a harbor area, and it's not unusual to see Heron's feeding at dawn or dusk. An artist's retreat, weekly rentals, shops or family summer retreat are just a few of the possibilities for this one of a kind offering. Call agent for more info today!!!
