Real Estate Watch: Blue Water live-work spaces, Airbnbs, and lakefront homes

It’s been a while since we’ve run one of our real estate watches. While the events of 2020 had its own ideas for publications like ours, life marches on. So we thought that with just a few weeks left in the year, it would be a good time to return to the real estate pages. What we find is that Port Huron and its surrounding communities continue to offer a vast array of housing types, in price, style, and locale — COVID-19 or not.

1624 17th Street, Port Huron: $129,900

This charming brick bungalow, built in 1931, is sneaky cool. Well kept on the outside, the interior reveals a home that has been thoughtfully renovated from the attic on down, including a thoroughly modern kitchen. The backyard, with its patio and fire pit, makes us long for summer already. Located a quick bike ride from downtown, the home has most recently been used as an Airbnb.


1282 Krafft Road, Fort Gratiot: $300,000

This unique mixed-use property sits on nearly two acres and features both residential and commercial space. The ground floor is a storefront and workshop, with finished residential areas in both the second floor and basement, making it a prime property for someone looking for their own live-work space or somewhere to make some income in rent. And it’s beautifully located in a spot tucked between Lake Huron, the Black River Canal, and Port Huron Golf Club, too.


4252 Gratiot Avenue, Port Huron: $339,000

One of the more relatively affordable homes located right on Lake Huron (and especially when compared to our next home), this 1927-built bungalow features stunning views from its sun porch and, inside, a classic wooden beamed-living room.


4150 Gratiot Avenue, Port Huron: $1,160,000

While we recognize that this contemporary stunner is well out of reach for most of us, the listing is worth taking a look at for the architecture alone. And while its design deserves a second look, the beachfront views aren’t too shabby, either.
