Great boating, hunting, fishing, and an abundance of nature at your door step.

Quaint, clean cottage in a quiet neighborhood with 100´ of frontage on a wide, deep water canal with direct access to the South Channel of the St. Clair River. Canal is very clean and swimmable with sand bottom. New steel seawall installed in Spring of 2007. Depth at the wall is 3´-4´. 240 sq ft deck at seawall. The property extends from the canal in front to a beautiful natural marsh in the back with a variety of wildlife, including turtles, frogs, mink, herons, and many other birds. The marsh extends for approximately 1/2 mile from the property line preventing development and thus ensuring privacy. There is a 160 sq ft deck/dock on the marsh side.

The lot is large enough to add on to the existing cottage or to build a much larger home. City water hook up is in place and assessment is paid, and it has a newer 1250 gallon septic tank. The foundation is new and the crawl is insulated and lined with plastic. The house is high enough to qualify for an elevation certificate which limits flood insurance. Also on the property is a 10´x10´ metal shed (new Nov´06) with power outlets.

The cozy interior comes mostly furnished, with a queen-sized foldout couch, tv, double bed in 1st BR, bunk beds in 2nd BR, dresser, nightstands, kitchen table & chairs, stove, refrigerator, and various other small kitchen appliances.
Advantages of this property that become apparent after living here:

The cottage is on a wide, deep, clean, sand bottom, swimmable canal with direct access to the South Channel. (Most others in area get weed clogged by July.)

There is four feet of water at the steel seawall and is deep enough to dock a 40’ boat.

There is only half the car and foot traffic of other roads, due to houses on only one side of the road.

There is water on both sides (canal & marsh), the marsh is very private.

There will never be houses on marsh side of the road.

The marsh side provides a closeness to nature not found on most canal lots.

The marsh has numerous cuts with access to the river via canoes, kayaks, jet skis, and smaller boats with outboards.

The cottage is connected to city water and the assessment is fully paid. Many houses on the island have no access to city water.

Large buildable lot. (Septic fields must be engineered and take space.)
CLOSE TO HOME WITH THAT FAR AWAY FEEL. Like being up North for a lot less gas.
