Cute and cozy, affordable comfort in our one bedroom, one bath Elston Grove Historic District home. This home is listed on the National Registry. The little house is in the transitional heart of Michigan City. You will see a mix of new businesses, Breweries, event centers, marina, and Blue Chip Casino. Less than 5 to 10 minutes from the beach. Watch the Double Track built before your very eyes. Be a part of history!

The space
The home boasts a sunroom that leads to the kitchen, and dining area. There is a nice-sized foyer that divides the house from the kitchen. The living room is fairly large for a 1 bedroom, 1 bath home. The living room has a full-size Ethan Allen sofa, two wicker chairs, and a slipper chair. The decor is that of a Maine cottage/Cape Cod style, in crisp colors of white and navy. The bedroom is off the living room and has a twin bed, a queen bed, and a futon, all with memory foam sleep. Guests will love the large walk-in closet.

The home is right along 11th st, which is located in Elston Grove Historic District. Currently, extensive work is being done to lay the new double-track South Shore line, which will make it possible to travel from Michigan City to Chicago in less than an hour! There are times when there is construction noise, but my husband and I are shocked at how quiet and peaceful the home actually is. Watch history unfold before your eyes! Entry to the home is through the paved alley-way and the primary entry to the home is on the backside.

Where you’ll be

Michigan City, Indiana, United States

This neighborhood is called Elston Grove. The property is along 11th Street where the new double track South Shore Train line is being laid. Despite the location the home is very quiet and subdued. There can be moments of construction Monday thru Friday during business hours. There is minimal traffic due to this construction. The home is only one block from Zorn Brewery.
