Designed and constructed by a renown Michigan builder, the 'bones' on this 5 bedroom / 2 full bathroom custom lakefront home are very solid.
Just 3 doors from the end of Southcott toward Beach O' Pines; even with the high levels; there is still beach! Properties further north in Southcott Pines currently have no beach.
The deeper lots in the southern end result in a building footprint further aft from the top the bank allowing more room for the beach to naturally adjust as lake levels rise & fall.
See that? Beach! History has taught us that water levels cycle through high periods for 3 to 5 yrs every 30 to 40 yrs.  So, beach should look like the next photo soon enough
This photo was taken right at the southern end of Southcott a few years back.  And from the early 1990s right to 2016, this is pretty much what the beach looked like!
So, now that we've discussed how stellar this location truly is, let's take a look at this custom home.
As you enter the home from the ample parking area, take note of the extremely unique red brick floor.  The main floor is literally paved with bricks - very unique and very cool!
The open concept nature of this home is ideal for large families.
The primary open area is of course designed to have the majority of the windows facing the lake! This dining area is on the other side of the main open living space.
Check out that towering fireplace - a legitimate wood burning fireplace ready for those cozy fall and winter evenings!
Here's another shot of this epic open living space - so much room!
The space is even more evident from this angle.
Just look at the detail in this hand-carved feature showcasing this gorgeous interior balcony. I can think of loads of ways to work this balcony into a killer renovation!
A view from above.
And finally, a view from the other angle. Note all of that light flooding in through those lakefront windows - such a great feeling.
Open living space.
That beam work from the previous shot is almost as cool as the vaulted ceiling above the balcony and second floor master loft!  This shot was taken from the main floor great room.
Note the ideal location of the kitchen just behind the dining area.
A true cottage kitchen - compact and handy :)
All appliances included!
Let's head upstairs along the backside of the massive red brick fireplace.
Now, onto the bedrooms. This is the lakeview loft, which the family always used as the master suite with a large 4 piece washroom just around the corner.
As we take a closer view of this room, you can see the detail in the wood ceilings, wood floors, and barn board walls.
Let's head down the hall to see some more bedrooms!
Bedroom #2, nice and roomy!
Bedroom #3-equally as roomy.
Yet a 4th bedroom upstairs, a 3rd level sleeping loft accessible by a ladder - the kid's favorite room!
Here is the large 4 piece bathroom servicing the upper level bedrooms.
And for those family members who are having some mobility issues, it's great to have this large main floor bedroom!

The 3 piece washroom on the main level is just across from the main floor bedroom.
Everyone loves having MAIN FLOOR laundry, with a new washer & dryer by the way, both of which are included!
Here, you see an updated breaker board, which, once again, demonstrates that the 'bones' of this well-built beach house are indeed worth saving!
Rec room in lower level walking-out at grade straight to the beach!
A lot of trees have been saved at this property allowing the buyer to establish a lakeview of their choosing, either with or without the trees.
Some of the best views are from that upper level deck, accessible from the master suite as shown in this photo.
Note the ample green space on each side of the generous cottage, which contributes to the very private feel of this lot.
Note the substantial amount of land btw the cottage & the bank. This additional depth found in the far end of Southcott means that your home is not uncomfortably positioned too close the bank.
And isn't that the best part about owning a lakefront home - owning your right to this private beach every moment of every day just a couple hundred feet from your doorstep?
Just a short walk to downtown as shown in this aerial photo.
And, as indicated by the arrow, you are an even closer walk to the endless undeveloped beaches of the Pinery Provincial Park, which is just a quick stroll through Beach O' Pines.
Even with the water levels peaking, sand that built up over the last 30 to 35 years of normal water levels is still sitting atop the erosion prevention that was installed in the late 1980s.
Myth or reality?  Why not let the next series of photos help you to answer this question...
A Southcott Pines sunset circa 2018.
A nice harbor sunset, just a short walk from your property in Southcott Pines.
And yet another stellar shot from Southcott Pines!
All this talk about Southcott Pines and we haven't discussed some of the benefits of owning property in this wonderful community. Brush pickup, playground, clubhouse...the list goes on!
Also in Southcott, you have access to the Old Ausable Channel for canoeing or fishing - all just a short walk from your new lakefront property!
And don't forget, you are just steps away from one of the largest provincial parks in the province!
And you're close to all of the fabulous amenities of this booming beach town. It's time to get to Grand Bend. Contact Mike Sloan at 519-870-7650 for a private showing today.

Remarks

Fall in love with this 5 bed/2 full bath LAKEFRONT treasure in the seldom available southern end of Southcott Pines where we still have a beach! Nestled into an exceptionally private lakefront lot is this truly unique open concept beach house reminiscent of a Bavarian lodge & just begging to be modernized. However, it's the location that truly sells this wonderful property, just 3 doors away from the end of the subdivision on a dead end road that sees virtually no traffic on the road & very little foot traffic on the beach! The southern end is where you want to be with the last 6 to 8 lots having an extra 65 to 85 ft in depth when compared to the vast majority of other lakefront lots in the subdivision (see photo notes for additional info on why this is so important). Given the recent lakefront sale a few doors north at $2.8 mil, this house, with great bones, is a superb buy at almost 7 figures less. Save on the cost of building & give this gem a 10+ renovation! A must see! (id:27)
