I can't even begin to count the times I think to myself how great it would be to escape somewhere into the woods to live a peaceful little life. I'm not talking Grizzly Adams, living off the land escape, but more enchanted cottage surrounded by natures and beauty kind of escape.

Scrolling through Zillow the other day I came upon this little gem that immediately jumped out at me as something you would see in a storybook or fairytale. Complete with stone detailed exterior, trees galore, and even a sparkling pond, this house is the perfect wooded escape.

Located on 8 acres, the home is currently on the marked for $749,000. Situated down a dirt road in Manchester, Michigan, which is just about 26 miles from Ann Arbor, the house just reminded me of something you would see in a whimsical painting.

The home is 3150 square feet, with 3/4 bedrooms & 4 1/2 baths. The is a newly finished walkout that features radiant heat floors, incredible 2nd kitchen/bar, with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, and a huge family room. Adding to the uniqueness of this one of a kinda home is the cool sliding doors in basement which are made of reclaimed barn doors. These doors are made from oak beams cut & assembled with vintage automotive hardware...a huge rarity.

Although the inside is amazing, it's the outside that really caught my attention. There is a huge 43X20 in-ground pool with automatic closure, the is10.5 feet deep, and has automated electric 'disappearing' cover. The property is filled with incredible landscaping and natural beauty that finds friends woodland friends a common site, not to mention the picture perfect pond that is sure to offer up some lazy sunny days for fishing.
