There s no such thing as hustle and bustle here. There s just you, the lake, and the quiet and one charming A-frame with plenty of room for you and your guests. With just a single owner since 1979, the home has been lovingly maintained.

Located at 14315 Northmoor Drive on Somerset Lake in Hillsdale County, Michigan, this home is perfectly positioned for views of the entire lake. Those views are easily enjoyed from inside the home, through the many large windows, and from the beautiful deck outside.

A stairway leads to the side deck of the home, where one entrance is located. Inside, a short hall leads to two bedrooms and a full bath. To the left, just as you enter, are stairs to the loft, or you can cross a short landing to steps down into the great room.

The bedrooms off the hall are cozy and face the street. The great room, as befits a room so named, has beautiful, two-story views of the lake. There is a wood burning fireplace with brick surround, a dramatic vaulted, beamed ceiling, and a light fixture that descends from the highest beam.

This space also contains a dining area with its own impressive light fixture, and a kitchen with a generous snack bar. A JennAir stove is built in, and a black Maytag refrigerator is part of the package.

But the piece de resistance of this room of this entire home is the large bank of windows overlooking the water. Open the sliding doors to walk out on the expansive deck. One can just imagine enjoying a candlelit dinner out here on a warm summer s night, listening to the gentle waves and the night sounds.

Walk up the stairway to the loft, where the master suite is located. Open to the floor below, it includes a spacious bedroom, two closets, and a full bath with tile surround.

A door from the great room leads to the basement. A wood burning fireplace is surrounded by light-colored brick and has a nice raised hearth and brass insert. This basement has plenty of space here for a rec room or even another bedroom. Light paneling makes it appear larger. Sliding doors lead to a covered patio and the walkway to the lake.

A utility room, storage and full bath are also located on this level. The bathroom boasts a brand new tile floor and oak vanity with a cultured marble top.

Outside, the poured concrete walkway to the lake is lighted by post lamps and surrounded by well-maintained landscaping. A short bulkhead at the waterline prevents erosion. A floating dock has been taken out for the winter, but can easily be replaced.
