Local pros worked with students in the building trades program of the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District to craft this gem in a Frankfort neighborhood, sponsored by the Benzie Housing Council. Discover a smart look on the outside combined with extraordinary use of interior space, fitting three bedrooms, two baths and a spacious experience into 1,480 square feet (plus unfinished walkout basement). Hardwood floor on main floor, two-car garage included. And of course, there’s all that Frankfort bonus stuff to love: eclectic downtown, enchanting pier and magnificent beach just a nice walk away, $149,500. Doug Rath, Century 21 Frankfort, 231-352-7123. Note that this home was built to help a family land a quality place in a fine community. Get the word out!
