Residential - 1 1/2 Story

A RECIPE FOR RELAXATION. Personal home, vacation rental or executive retreat income property. This lakefront sanctuary is privacy assured, nestled within 35.6 wooded acres. Presenting with 2 bedrooms with more sleeping places in the walk-out basement for family and friends. This custom log home is nestled in the trees on beautiful Sandy Lake; offering some of the best Bass fishing in the Keweenaw! It’s commanding position is idyllically poised offering approx. 1320 feet of lake frontage. Every room maximizes a slice of the glorious view and keeps you cozy with in-floor heating throughout the home. The magnificent Great Room shares with you a richness of hickory flooring through a light filled setting of windows and wood. Natural timber posts feature the original contour of the base of the tree for a beautiful unique accent. Sit by the fireplace on cold nights and watch the snowfall and then retreat to your master suite which includes a large walk-in closet, master bath and sliding glass doors open onto the timber deck. The spacious deck runs the length of the front of this split log home and is the ideal spot for casual alfresco dining or gatherings of family and friends and offers sweeping views of the lake. The elegant kitchen, open to the great room, contains custom cabinets with slide out drawers, stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast bar for less formal times. A floor to ceiling tongue-and-groove pine with hickory flooring dining room is perfect for large gatherings. Enjoy the feeling of “treehouse” sleeping in the loft bedroom overlooking the Great Room with birds-eye views of the lake. Venturing downstairs to the full walk-out basement extends the possibilities. Perfect space for a bar, rec room, additional sleeping area and bonus room. An insulated, heated large 2 car garage with 9x22 mud room tops off this treasure! The log exterior blends tastefully with the natural environment of stately trees where the land spreads out to 35.8 acres that includes a 36x80 pole barn with 36x20 propane heated workshop, 200 amp electrical RV hookup, garden space, fire pit and is surrounded by state land. As a bonus, this retreat is only 3 miles from Twin Lakes State Park and Omer's Golf Course, Bar, Restaurant, and Rental Cabins and is a perfect option for a vacation rental or executive retreat location!
