Overlooking Lake Michigan in beautiful Petoskey, Michigan, you will find this adorable cottage currently for sale on Lookout Street.
House Crazy Sarah actually ventured down to Petoskey this past weekend (it is only a 2-hour drive from her home across the border in Canada).
The Petoskey area in northern Michigan has some fabulous old houses and vacation cottages. Like this one!
It’s not exactly affordable at $699,000, but it is loaded with charm, situated on an oversized lot, and has “peeks” of Little Traverse Bay.
The slate blue walls look fantastic against the warm original wood floors.
This vintage beauty (year built is not stated in the listing) features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 1,966 square feet.
The living room focal point is a brick fireplace with dental molding on the mantle.
Off to the side is a cozy little sitting room:
The dining room has fantastic windows that bring in great natural light.
But the star of this home is the kitchen.
At first glance, it looks perfectly vintage.
But this kitchen has been completely renovated to *look* vintage while checking off all the modern must-haves. So while it has an early 20th-century feel, it is fully set in the 21st century with appliances like AGA, Subzero, and Bosch, high-end granite countertops, and clean white custom cabinetry made to look antique.
Gotta love the mint green retro fridge in the laundry/mudroom.
The main floor also houses a 3/4 bathroom:
Upstairs are the three generously-sized bedrooms, with the master featuring its own gas fireplace.
The windows in these bedrooms are lovely.
From the outside, you can see that the back part of the house is a newer addition.
Looks like the master bedroom was built over the garage.
The listing doesn’t state how big the lot is, only that it is “oversized”. But what a great spot on the hill, overlooking the big lake!
