Buy a House on Lake Michigan, Help the Leelanau Conservancy

With 100 feet of lake Michigan shore out front and the forever-protected 330-acre Houdek Dunes Natural Area out back, this Leelanau home is positioned to give your family a place of perfect—and enthralling—balance. Peaceful, naturally, but when you ramp it up, two big decks will have you and crew gathering and grilling on summer nights while toasting the orange orb as it drops into the big lake beyond the Manitou islands. The gigantic feel-good point: proceeds from the sale support the Leelanau Conservancy (the same organization that protects the Houdek Dunes), thanks to the generosity of the Gotshall family, who owns the home. Three bedrooms, two baths, 1,800 square feet, $925,000. Mark Carlzon, 231-256-9836, MLS 1710240.
