On a broad 223-foot stretch of sugary sand beach on the shores of aquamarine Lake Huron that National Geographic has bestowed the honor of “Third Best Sunsets in the World” stands this unrivaled 1.78-acre estate that has not been offered for sale in decades. The property is distinct and exceptionally private, featuring extensive trails and paths, mature native trees reaching toward blue skies, verdant gardens and playful water features.
Located just south of the charming historic village of Bayfield, this exceptional family compound offers two distinct year-round residences: an enchanting upper guest house and the stately lower main home. From the property’s entry, a short staircase and lovely bridge lead to the 1,591-square-foot main home partway down the reinforced embankment. Wide decks present breathtaking views of those infamous sunsets enticing you and your guests into lounging, conversation, and al fresco dining. Inside, three finished levels offer three bedrooms, two bathrooms, sauna, and a large stone fireplace. Strategically-positioned windows offer panoramic Lake Huron views from nearly every room. The 701-square-foot guest home has two bedrooms, one full bathroom, and an open kitchen/living area ideal for weekend guests or extended family. The compound also features a detached two-car garage.
In addition to its stunning waterfront, adorable Bayfield is renowned for an array of boutique shops, unique restaurants, relaxing parks, emerging wineries and breweries, network of nature trails perfect for hiking and biking, and endless boating and sailing. The village prides itself on the sense of community that is extended to residents and visitors alike.
74877 & 74879 Dr George Smith Avenue is a rare opportunity to own a peaceful family compound directly on the shores of Lake Huron.
