There are six bedrooms, including two master bedrooms, four and one/half baths, wide plank heart pine floors, two fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting, a whole house standby generator, central air conditioning, and a multi room sound system.

The sliding glass door leads out to a multi level deck and yard where you can take in the spectacular views and summer sunsets.

Also in the lower level are a rec room, laundry room, a nanny room and bunk beds, and a bath with a shower. Outdoor amenities include an irrigation system, outdoor shower, security cameras, fire pit, and a gas grill on the deck.

The main level above has the living room, dining area and kitchen in an open floor plan with large windows all the way across the lake side which provide panoramic views wherever you are. And then there is the sliding glass door leading out to the large private deck where you can watch the lake freighters go by and see the sailboats passing the lighthouse as they go in and out of the breakwater. A beautiful fireplace highlights the living room and is both natural wood burning and gas. Also on the main level down the hallway is a large bedroom and a full bath. On the upper level is a huge master bedroom with a sitting area and a desk overlooking the lake. There is a large bathroom on this level with a double sink and another lakeside guest bedroom.

When it comes to interior quality, the current owners have really raised the bar here by totally remodeling every square inch of this unit from top to bottom, with features and amenities and fit and finish that make this so unique among the others. Examples are the tasteful color schemes, the stone and hearth treatment on the fireplace, several new windows, draperies and window shades, new ceramic floors in the bathrooms, lower den and kitchen, high end plumbing fixtures, all interior doors replaced with solid doors, and the kitchen....completely redone with new lighting, extended granite counter tops with bar stools, stainless steel appliances and a Viking 5 burner cook top. And last but not least, central air conditioning. The Bluffs complex is well maintained year round, and there is a common maintenance building with power garden tools to use and space to store an extra bicycle or two. It's quiet up here and you can take walks down Michigan Avenue or walk down the hill to the beaches in town and the restaurants and shopping in just a few minutes. There is nothing quite like this for a condo living experience. And at the end of the day, there's always that beautiful sunset. Priced at $395,000
