This Lake Huron home was originally built in the early 1900s and maintains a lot of its original charm. Period correct wall paper and plaster, light fixtures, original trim and vents, and the original fireplace. The property has fantastic stone walls on either side providing great privacy. To one side of the property is a small city park with a nice sandy beach and space between you and your neighbors. There is a low stone wall at the waters edge and large calcite stones for a sea wall. The lake bottom beyond the stones is hard sand. The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It also has a full basement. The main floor ceilings are extremely high and makes every room feel larger. There is a small covered porch on the street side and then a large covered porch on the lake side. There is a detached 4 car garage that is in rough shape and will need repaired or removed. The home looks SouthEast across Thunder Bay towards the sunrise. You can watch the fishing boats come in and out of the harbor or the big lakers come in and out of LaFarge. The bay is fantastic for paddleboarding or kayaking and the area is know for salmon and steelhead fishing as they return to their spawning grounds. Alpena is also a great base for Walley, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout. Thunder Bay is the nations only fresh water underwater preserve with hundreds of shipwrecks dating back to the late 1800s. The cold water helps maintain these wrecks in outstanding condition. Two of these wrecks are less than 550 yards in front of the house. Many are in less than 20 feet of water and can be seen while snorkeling. Many of these have mooring buoys to make access easier. The glass bottom boat that operates all summer passes in front of this house to go to some near shipwrecks. Alpena also has several dark sky parks, unique natural areas, and even a bat sanctuary. This house is just a few blocks from the historic down town and is right in the middle of the historic waterfront. Schedule a Private Showing
