Property Watch: Storm Hill Stunner

Jan. 9, 2023

From the expansive views of Lake Michigan and 2.16 acre lot to its beautiful, spacious interior, this home has it all. The soaring ceilings of the great room give a sense of space and the two stories of windows welcome tons of natural light, while the slate and fieldstone fireplace and woodwork keep it cozy.

The four bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home at 11805 S Orchard Hill Drive in Empire (MLS #1907500; $1,150,000) is just steps away from 838 ft of sparkling Lake Michigan waterfrontage. Bring the outside in with the sunroom with natural beadboard ceiling or take in the actual outdoors on the wraparound deck, perfect for dining al fresco or basking in the legendary sunsets.

The main floor includes a full bath, laundry room, and den/study, and a richly-appointed kitchen, open to both the great room and the dining area. Plus a spacious master suite with its own private bath with granite-topped vanity and a gorgeous, tiled shower-for-two with frameless glass doors. The second floor offers two more bedrooms plus another master suite with walk-in closets and a private spa-like bath with granite counters and a stunning tile shower and a deep soaking tub. 

Add the exclusive community tennis courts, hiking trails, and park, in addition to the sandy Lake Michigan shared beachfront below, and this is a paradise not to be missed.
