A move-in ready home with numerous recent updates, situated on a quiet 2.5 acre lot that feels like a mini-homestead! The house is set back from the road with a spacious grassy yard and a path that leads back into the towering pines. Recent updates include a new roof, siding, windows, new well, fully remodeled bathroom, paint and trim throughout, wood plank accent ceilings, new fans and a new combo washer/dryer. The patio with fresh landscaping wraps around part of the home, providing nice outdoor dining space. Oversized two car garage with ample storage. Other features: a large chicken coop with separate animal pen/storage space (chickens can be included in sale!), a fenced-in garden and a bonfire pit. With an underground invisible fence and kennel attached to the garage, the property is well set up for dog owners. The home is currently on propane, but a natural gas line runs all the way to the house. Hundreds of acres of public state land located just down the road, with Brown Bridge Quiet area and the Boardman River located just 12 minutes away for hiking, fishing & kayaking. The village of Kingsley is located under 10 minutes away and downtown Traverse City is just 20 minutes away. Floating shelves in bedrooms not included in sale.
