MI Dream Home: Lake house in Van Buren Twp. perfect for entertaining, large family

·2 min read

Mar. 27—A custom-built house in Van Buren Township that's up for sale not only has a view of sunrises and sunsets over a lake, but offers plenty of room for a large family or entertaining.

Located on Lake Point Pass and on the shore of Belleville Lake, the 11-year-old home has a price of $1.75 million.

It's also about 30 minutes from downtown Detroit, downtown Ann Arbor and less than 20 minutes from Detroit Metro Airport.

"You're halfway to Detroit and halfway to Ann Arbor," said Therese Antonelli, Realtor and owner of Moving the Mitten Real Estate & Mortgage in Belleville. "The area is a prime location off of (Interstate 94.)"

The lake house has more than 8,500 square feet of finished living space, including two full kitchens, six bedrooms, three full baths and three half baths. The master bedroom has a slate bathroom that includes a dual vanity, jetted tub and steam shower. Other amenities include a fireplace in the family room and a walkout basement.

Outside, the house has more than 200 feet of sandy beach as well as two boat slips. It has an upper and lower deck facing the lake.

"This is the only home on Belleville Lake with a sandy beach," Antonelli said.

There's also a 12-car garage that's a motorhead's dream, complete with heat, a hydraulic lift, epoxy floors and an air compressor. The garage initially had space for two cars, but an addition and a catwalk connecting it to the house were added in 2015.

"For me, I believe the home's best feature is it has an entirely separate wing that's for entertaining purposes," Antonelli said.

She also said besides being located on a waterfront and great for entertaining, the home is also perfect place for anyone who needs a place for a large or multigenerational family.

"You could easily have Grandma, Mom and Dad, the kids and grandkids all living here and they wouldn't even see each other," Antonelli said. "There are essentially three different living areas in this home that a multigenerational family could settle in."
