Property Watch: Serenity Now In Northport (Under $380K)

By Ross Boissoneau | Aug. 3, 2022

Looks like a cottage, lives like a home. This bungalow in Northport (11920 N. Foxview Dr., Northport; $379,900) is the spot to drink in the panoramic views of Lake Michigan, North and South Manitou Islands, Pyramid Point and the Crib from the large, plentiful windows. Sunsets don’t get any better.

The new owners will enjoy one-story living, with three bedrooms plus the kitchen, dining area, living room bathroom and laundry room on one level. But look up, down, all around: A drop-down ladder provides access to the 460 square foot finished attic with a bedroom and half bath and even more views from the second-floor deck. A lower level offers plenty of workshop and/or storage space. The one-plus acre lot borders a wooded area with stately pines providing the backdrop. Peterson Park is a short walk away, and Christmas Cove offer public access to the beach. Dark skies, migrating birds, and wildlife abound.

View properties like these under $380K are few and far between, which makes this a “tremendous value” for the right bidder, says listing agent Ann Marie Mitchell of Coldwell Banker Schmidt-Leland.
