The Grand Bend Lakefront Full Story – Feat. the One & Only Beach O’ Pines Subdivision
Why is everyone talking about Beach O’ Pines? Simply put, it’s a magical place, a long-time private enclave tucked away at the edge of Grand Bend where the beaches never seem to go away regardless of the water levels. As for Grand Bend, the secret is out – we have some the best beaches in the entire country and everybody’s coming this way. And Beach O’ Pines, home to some of the most exclusive lakefront properties in North America, is the spot to be in Grand Bend with its unmatched privacy, incomparably consistent beach quality, and its unique proximity to miles of pristine undeveloped shoreline in the Pinery Park.
I’m Mike Sloan, the marketing professor realtor. Generally speaking, I sell real estate. In Beach O’ Pines, I’m selling dreams. Here, at 10018 Huron Drive, I am privileged to showcase one of the best lakefront locations in the Beach O’ Pines community.
Let’s start around back, because we all know on the lake, the beach is your front yard. As you pull in, this gorgeous cobble stone hill feature and the unusually large depth of the lot provide more privacy from the roadside than any other Beach O’ Pines spot on the lake. As we step into this 4 season well-renovated beach house, it is immediately evident that this one’s a keeper. The large principal rooms featuring authentic barn board walls, a field stone fireplace the runs outsides the walls through various rooms…so cool, and the original hardwood flooring underneath all that bomb proof berber carpeting demonstrate the potential of this extremely well-kept building. Most buyers will want to update the aesthetics, but the bones are there, rock solid as ever and just oozing with character and charm. As we go through the main floor, you’ll notice lots of natural light with a focus on the lakefront side of the home.
As we tour the 2nd floor, you’ll notice 4 generous bedrooms, one of which is a 2 room master suite with an ensuite bath. So, by choice, you could have 5 bedrooms on the 2nd level with 2 full baths, and that’s not even counting the additional sleeping areas on the main floor, in the lower level, and out back in the bunkhouse. With 4 bathrooms and enough space to sleep 22 comfortably across 2 strong buildings, this is a strong performer compared to other recent sales. Ideally, you can move right in, and then update the finishes as you see fit without having to worry about the insulation, plumbing, wiring, or the furnace or A/C. Did I mention that the furnace isn’t even a year old? In terms of the guts and componentry from the factory stained cedar siding & custom built windows, right down the foundation and septic system, this place was completely overhauled within the last 20 years!
Grand Bend Lakefront Comparable Real Estate Sales
With the last 5 lakefront sales in Beach O’ Pines occurring over the past 18 months, all excellent properties, only 1 house could boast such a young age with the core systems, and it sold for substantially more money than the current asking price on this property with similar frontage and without a secondary building. I was involved on either one side or both with 4 out of 5 of these lakefront sales, so my knowledge is qualified. Contact me if you’d like to review the data, and you’ll quickly realize of how good of a deal this actually is.
Grand Bend Lakefront with 2 Buildings!
Let’s go check out that secondary building I just mentioned. As we cruise down the south side of the expansive circular driveway, you can once again see the premium privacy provided at this property from the roadside. In fact, some guests often mistake this garage with bunkhouse as the primary building. Here, we have a full 23’ x 23’ 2 car garage with 10’ ceilings underneath a fully winterized bunkhouse that can sleep 8, comfortably. Check it out, this is a pretty cool space, and a great spot for the young ones in your family to escape for the evening while still locating themselves safely on your property.
Beach O’ Pines Exclusives & Conclusion
Before we wrap up, we need to head back down to the lakefront. We haven’t spent enough time out there. In addition to having your own private beach, which, by the way, is 100% privately owned right into the water at this property, the panoramic vistas provided at this property from all angles upon the lands above the beach are literally second to none. And with just a few steps to your brand new beach deck overtop of the best engineered erosion prevention money can buy, then it starts to click. This is Beach O’ Pines. And don’t forget, you own that beach. It’s in the deed. Your only obligation is to allow pedestrians the ability to walk across it. You can keep your boat there, set the perfect camp fire, or even pitch a tent for a nice summer slumber following one of these sunsets. All of these shots were taken from the front lawn of this property. Incredible, isn’t it. And to be there in person, it’s even better.
As a sidenote, 100% beach ownership is something only a small portion of Beach O’ Pines properties can boast, including only 2 of the last 5 lakefront sales. All of this enchantment, and you can still walk to downtown Grand Bend in just a few minutes. And to the South, after just a few more houses, you’re into miles and miles of undeveloped shoreline. And to top it all off, this particular location is further away from any of the subdivision beach paths than all of the last 5 lakefront sales except one.
They say it’s all about location. This is a location that truly only comes along once in a lifetime. The perfect moment can change your life. This magical lakefront location has been a home for many such moments for my family. I am very proud to be part of any Beach O’ Pines lakefront sale as these are not just real estate transactions – they are dreams coming true. But here, at my family’s lakefront heaven, it my mission to make your dreams come true. Yes, this is my family’s own cottage in case you haven’t figure that out by now, since 1980, and with everyone living in different parts of the world, it’s now time to share these dreams with a new family. If you can afford this level of luxury, you cannot afford to pass this up. Call me today at 519-870-7650 for a private showing before it’s too late!
