Property Watch: The Village Life, Leland-Style

By Emily Tyra | Oct. 16, 2020

This week’s real estate hunt lands us in a six-bedroom, six-bath farmhouse nestled in the trees on a quiet village street (307 South Chandler, $925,000, MLS# 1874920) in Leland. This spot offers an unbeatable slice of small-town life, where each day is a coin-flip for fun with both Lake Leelanau and historic Fishtown just a minute way. A classic covered front porch is the place to work remotely, kick back after school, catch up with the neighbors, or to stash the latest collection of Leland Blues discovered on Van’s Beach.

The floorplan is kid-friendly all the way, with a mudroom for snowy boots, laundries on both the main and second floor, and ample room to host the grandparents — and aunts, uncles, cousins and pets — with a bonus room/bath above the garage and a detached carriage house with its own private living space and kitchenette. Bonus: listing agent Kimberly Bork of Venture Properties says the carriage house also has an excellent rental history.
