It has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, one half-bath, an enormous living area and a huge wraparound porch. Lawns, original stonework and towering trees surround the house. It has its own large private dock to enjoy the sunsets. There is even a separate, secluded stone terrace overlooking the water. It is hard to imagine a more spacious or peaceful place to enjoy the beauty of Door County.
The living/dining area is huge and open with high beamed ceilings and abundant windows. The dining table has extra leaves to accommodate a large family gathering. There is a small den just off the main living room for watching television or playing games. There is a powder room adjacent to the TV room. The kitchen is old-fashioned with a large vintage porcelain cast iron kitchen sink and butcher block table and countertops. There are two generous pantries filled with cookware, dishes and glasses. Just off the kitchen is a large storage area with plenty of space for your bicycles or other equipment, as well as a laundry area.
The bedrooms are all big and bright with large windows. Several of the bedrooms have sun-porches that open off them. The mattresses and box springs are all new. The bathrooms are charming and old-fashioned: three have the original porcelain sinks and claw foot bathtubs and three have shower stalls.
Outside, just off the kitchen and dining room, there is a stone courtyard with a gas grill, table and chairs that is perfect for outdoor summer dining. Just beside it is a croquet court. There is a large lawn with ample room for children to run and frolic to their hearts’ content while the adults gather to eat and socialize. All in all, it is an ideal setting for a social gathering; it is spacious and comfortable (and we think it has the most beautiful sunsets in Door County).
The house is less than half a mile from the town of Fish Creek. It is a brief 10 minute walk down Cottage Row into the center of town, where there are numerous shops, cafes and restaurants. The Peninsula State Park, with its miles of bike trails and beaches, is a 10 minute bike-ride away. This is simply the ideal location for anyone who likes to fish, swim, bike, hike or just relax in solitude.
As you can tell, this is a very special place. So many who walk onto this property fall in love with it. It seems to transport you to a quieter and more gracious time. While you probably won’t find a house with greater soul or beauty, at the end of the day, it is an old country house with quirks and blemishes: so it is not a good fit for those seeking either luxury or perfection.
The family who owns this house truly treasures it and they are happy to share it with others who will appreciate it as we do. ***LINENS INCLUDED***
