Eclectic beachfront home on Agate Beach. This property is more than a house. Minutes from downtown Marquette’s restaurants and activity, a short drive to shopping and health care, and with direct access to a lakeshore bike path, walking trails, waterways, and a sandy beach – this property allows you to truly have it all. Enjoy the many moods of Lake Superior from the security of the boulder-protected beach in the front yard, watch the monarchs soar around the pollinator garden, and witness the occasional deer visits and eagle flyovers. Move to the back yard, past the garden and fenced yard, and you can head out for a hike or bike on the Iron Ore Heritage Trail, explore the adjacent Chocolay Bayou Nature Preserve, or set out by kayak or fishing boat to explore the Chocolay River. This is one of the only places in Marquette where a boat owner can dock in the bayou and be on the lake in minutes. When it’s time to go inside, enter from the spacious two-car garage or directly into the airy sunroom, with its heated floor and welcoming hot tub for those winter warmups. The main floor opens to the living room, dining room and kitchen – an open concept space with enticing views of Lake Superior from each room. The master bedroom and bath to the West have been recently updated with heated tile in the remodeled bath. The kitchen is well appointed with hickory cabinets by North Oak, including slide-out shelves in the pantry and numerous cupboards, a breakfast bar, and a gas range. Two more bedrooms are located on the bayou side of the house and share another updated woodsy bathroom. All have abundant closet space. The lower level provides plenty of space for family activities: a large family room and a recreation room, additional bedroom, den or craft room, laundry/utility room, half bath, storage room and a workshop already equipped with shelves, built-in cupboards, and a workbench. The attached 2-car garage has plenty of additional storage space, great for bikes, kayaks and other toys. An attached shed for is the perfect place to store the lawnmower/snowthrower in the off-season. Decks on both the lake and bayou sides make it possible to enjoy sun or breeze wherever you sit. The fenced yard will keep a dog happy and safe. The vegetable garden has years of amended soil that has grown fantastic organic vegetables. Wildflowers and heritage plantings create a beautiful outdoor space. Not just a house, but a well-loved home in a unique location, surrounded by nature but just outside the city of Marquette. After 50 years, the owners have retired and moved South, so now it’s your turn to enjoy the laid-back bayou lifestyle.
