The greatest of the great lakes, SUPERIOR! Your own 1,525 feet of sugar sand beach frontage and 197 acres of peace, privacy, and total tranquility! The wildlife you'll see on this property is diverse. From the private ponds behind the house to the big lake in front of the house. Yes, this wonderful property also has a very nicely appointed 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with 2 car attached garage and an additional two car detached garage with large finished studio above. This space would make a great art studio or as the current owners use it, a dance studio! Either way the views for miles are magnificent. Inside the main house the open concept was used to bring the kitchen, dining, and living rooms together. The finest quality bird's eye maple was used in the cabinetry and of course granite counter tops are installed. There are also two bedrooms on the main floor one of which is currently being used as an office/family room with built in shelving and a private back deck over looking the south side of the property. The master bedroom and bathroom are on the second floor with large windows to view the south side of the property and the current owners say some of the most beautiful meteor showers have been seen from this room. You have an enclosed porch area over looking the lake perfect for relaxing with a good book. There are decks surrounding the entire house so you can enjoy the ever changing landscape from any location. One of the other features of this house is the Kohler 7500 automatic back up generator, although not used very often it is nice to know that you will always have uninterrupted power. Although you're on 197 acres of property and located in a very secluded area, the town of Big Bay is only a mile and a half down the road for dining and small shopping items. There is also the Big Bay marina around the corner to drop your boat. This property offers so much you really need to see it in person. Contact your agent today and schedule your showing!
