Our brightly lit 1092 sq. ft. open home sits on a beautiful 1/5 acre (7449 sq ft) grassy lot surrounded by lush foliage in the back yard and simple easily maintained landscaping on the front lawn. The wood deck and concrete stone patio off the back of the house create a private outdoor area suitable for private time, cookouts and/or family recreation. There is a one auto carport with additional driveway and street parking for about 2-3 more cars.
The house was built in 1957 in the mid century "Hoosier Style" as part of the first phase of the Lakewood Hills subdivision in Miller Beach. It has a new asphalt roof, new windows, new central AC and new gas furnace all installed about 7 years ago. It also has a stainless steel gas range oven and refrigerator that were installed about the same time. These appliances and the new HVAC are all energy efficient.
Our home offers a cathedral ceiling in the living/dining room, vaulted ceilings in the kitchen and front hallway and 9 ft ceilings throughout the rest of the house including the lower level basement. The living/dining room are fully paneled with real wood. The living room, 3rd bedroom and lower level recreation room have picture windows. All windows except those in the two upstairs bedrooms have treatments, either blinds, shutters or curtains. All windows except the upstairs bathroom window have screens. The living room, master bedroom, 2nd bedroom, lower level family room and lower level office/study are carpeted. The dining room, kitchen and front entry/hallway have wood laminate flooring. The 3rd bedroom has a hardwood floor. The recreation room, work area and bathrooms have linoleum or vinyl tile flooring. The laundry room and furnace storage area have concrete floors.
One can walk out onto the deck from the master bedroom and descend the stairs to the ground level patio. The basement work area walks out onto the patio and the picture window in the basement recreation room overlooks it. The completely finished lower level (sq footage has not been added to the 1092 sq ft figure) has the family room, recreation room, office/study, bathroom, work area with built-in workbench and furnace storage area.
We have not lived in our home full-time since 2010. We recently (August 2016) stayed in it to ensure it is in good working order before listing it for sell. The house has a wooden ramp to the exterior kitchen door and a change to the original bathroom door location to make it wheelchair accessible. We are selling it AS IS because we do not plan to remove the ramp, adjust the bathroom door/hallway, do additional painting or any other work of a cosmetic nature prior to sell. The home is fully paid for, and we are asking $92,000. We are flexible about the price. The furniture currently in the house is also available for sell on a separate schedule.
The house is about a 20 min walk to the Marquette Park Pavilion and Miller Beach (Lake Michigan) with newly renovated changing and concession facilities. It is about a 5-10 min drive from the Indiana Dunes state park and about 10-15 min from the major interstates and toll roads. Our house has been home to happy families of several generations and we lived in it happily ourselves for over 30 years.
