This adorably chic 1940’s cottage sits prettily within the Beechwoods Community, and is a short walk to its private dock on bustling and beautiful White Lake, where it enjoys lake rights. The cottage has been lovingly upgraded and renovated by its current owners, starting when they purchased it in 2002 up to present day.
Hemlock Road makes use of every inch of its tiny footprint, with an easy style that establishes the mood for a relaxing stay. Enter through a screened porch into a great room with high-gabled ceiling and space enough for lounging and dining. Set off to the right of the living space, the simple and elegant kitchen was given a makeover just last year, introducing gleaming marble counters and stainless appliances.
Beyond the kitchen is one of the two bedrooms. Bright blue walls keep things cheerful year-round, and a rear door leads directly to the backyard, where the bonus of an outdoor shower enhances the “getaway experience” in warmer months.
A second good-sized bedroom is located on the other side of the house, just past a delightful, freshly painted apple green bathroom with a clawfoot tub. And a truly spacious sleep loft, accessible by a full-size staircase, gives this tiny house a bonus bed count.
In a private community that blossoms from spring to fall, this cottage is unique in that it can be used year-round. It has its own well (most of the other homes are on municipal water, which shuts down in the winter), is fully insulated and has electric heat. (Optionally, the owner can easily drain the pipes when leaving for the week, saving on heat, or simply turn the thermostat down during absences.)
White Lake is a 280-acre motorboat lake, and the deepest in the county. It’s a haven for fishing, swimming and boating in summer, and popular for ice skating and ice fishing in winter. It’s also one of the only lakes with both residential and commercial development, which means you can take your boat or paddleboard to the other side of the lake where there are a cluster of eateries and shops.
