GREAT WATERFRONT LOCATION-The only thing you can't change!
The Lot ($125,000- $1,250/ft): Unlike over 90% of the waterfront properties in the area this location has only advantages:
It is on a dead end road off the main highway offering safety and minimal traffic noise.
Easy access to the public snowmobile & hiking trail that passes across the road from the house, not between the house and the lake.
The lot is over 300Ft deep, not a mine tailings dumpsite, has both a huge front yard and back yard, and has a flat walk to the water not a steep slide.
The lot is on a point, has a sand beach with 100 yards of shallow swimming for the kids, but is deep enough to launch a fishing boat from a shore station.
There is deep water docking 100 yards if front of the shore, and is on a navigable waterway that connects with Lake Superior and all points beyond.
Does not suffer from the Milfoil inundation, which plague the area bay waterfronts, and has no Milfoil Special Assessment.
Extensive gardens and hedges that provide privacy and beauty.
Is five miles from MTU, and six miles from the major M-26 shopping areas
Is connected with natural gas, and close enough to Chassell for both DSL and Cable Internet access.
Good school districts (Chassell and Houghton).
The House ($278,000- $82/sq-ft*): This strongly build and well maintained older home combines both the rustic feel of the north woods, and the elegance of an English country house:
