Famous 1900 Canfield Home
Built by the millionaire lumber baron Charles Canfield in 1900, this historic 8 bedroom, 8 bath home was fully updated and restored in 1998. Located on Portage Lake with 200 feet of lake frontage plus dock makes this a special home and a special location.
A massive stone fireplace is a centerpiece of the family room. Original leaded glass windows and maple floors. The large wraparound front porch gives a panoramic view looking across Portage Lake. Each bedroom has a name reflecting a theme -- i.e., The Moorings, Sedona, The Vineyard, Portage Rose, Northwoods, Charles Canfield, and Garden View.
Keep your boat at your private dock attached to the steel seawall protecting your large lawn. The back yard is adorned with landscaped plants around a small pond and fountain. Beautiful Lake Michigan beaches accessed 2 miles down the road. Travel north on M-22 along the scenic Lake Michigan coastline noted by "National Geographic" as one of the most scenic drives in America. Visit lighthouses, wineries, and quaint shoreline towns. Traverse City is 50 miles away. Several championship golf courses within a few miles including the famous Arcadia Bluffs only 8 miles away. Great fishing on both lakes along with world-class trout rivers and streams.
