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 w/millions of dollars of investment being made in new & remodeled luxury homes. Rare 2.75 acre site w/226 ft of prime water frontage has been in the same family since the 1960's. Special features: quiet location at the end of a cul-de-sac, deep wooded lot, tons of privacy, gentle slope to the river, easy water access, southwest exposure for breathtaking river sunsets. Charming 1938 historic home w/ original masonry boathouse at the water. Endless possibilities! Create 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 the Village of Cascade and new Ada Village redevelopment. Be sure to view the aerial still shots & video for full perspective. Amazing!
