Description

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 the charm of the existing home. Convenient camel back bridge location affords tons of navigable water up and down the river. Short distance to both the Village of Cascade and the new Ada Village redevelopment. Be sure to view both the aerial still shots and video for full perspective. Amazing!
