Tucked in a woodsy corner of Charlevoix and a stone’s throw from the Lake Michigan lighthouse, this storybook home and guest house is one for the ages. From the undulating cedar shingle roof to Onaway stone walls, this enchanting home and guest house harmonizes with the landscape—a guiding principle of Charlevoix legendary builder in stone, Earl Young. Known for his meticulous masonry crafted from ice age boulders, frosted chimneys and windswept roof lines, Young designed 21 homes in his hometown, Charlevoix. Designed with an oblong shape and topped with deep eaves, this beloved landmark is known as ‘The Mushroom House’. In the 1950s, Young designed this two-story, three-bedroom home using leaded glass windows sourced from a Polish castle. Inside, the massive Onaway stone fireplace is a masterpiece, and from the rustic patio you can hear Lake Michigan waves rolling into shore. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Not far from the main house is a 2-bedroom, 1,008 square foot guest house with garage, that adds capacity and great value to the property. This home imprints the heart—a wonderful place to gather and spend time with loved ones. Less than a block away, enjoy Lake Michigan's sandy beach and outstanding library. Protected by the historic district, this home carries on legacy. Home is being sold mostly furnished and is ready for immediate occupany.
