Property Watch: Nostalgic Family Retreat On Lake Leelanau

By Emily Tyra | July 6, 2020

This week’s watch takes us to a grouping of parcels on South Lake Leelanau that include two homes, a boathouse, outdoor tennis and shuffleboard courts on approximately 4.43 acres with 859 feet of private lake frontage.

Shown here is the 1950s two-story home and boathouse in Shugart Shores, ($1,195,000; MLS # 1874721) with nostalgic knotty pine cottage vibes and a two-stall boathouse.

Another 2,246 square foot ranch home with 300 feet on South Lake Leelanau is currently set up to be used as three adjoining dwellings for extended family — social distancing ahead of its time. 

Listing agent Tim Schaub of Schaub Team Premier Realty says a survey is being completed to determine the exact acreage and frontage of all parcels. See also MLS# 1874720, and MLS# 1874723 for the big picture of this unique retreat.
