Once in a lifetime opportunity to buy one of the biggest sites on the Thornapple River on one the most prestigious streets above the Ada Dam. Briarcliff is arguably the hottest riverfront address with millions of dollars of investment being made in both new and remodeled luxury homes. This very rare 2.75 acre site with 226 ft of prime water frontage has been in the same family since the 1960's. Special features include: quiet location at the end of a cul-de-sac, deep wooded lot affords tons of privacy, very gentle slope to the river for easy water access, southwest exposure over the river for breathtaking sunsets. Charming historic home built in 1938 includes the original masonry boathouse down at the water. Endless possibilities for creating your new exclusive river estate or enhance
