Residential - 1 1/2 Story

MICHIGAN VILLAGE HOME FOR SALE! This 4-Bedroom home is located in Alpha, in Mastodon Township, in Iron County, in the southwest part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This small historic mining Village has an area of just under a Square Mile! In the 1880's the boundaries for Iron County and Mastodon Township were established. When mineral explorers were searching the area for deposits of iron ore, some huge prehistoric animal bones were discovered and from this discovery, Mastodon Township received it's name. The design of the Village was ahead of it's time - at the center of town is a 4 1/2 Acre Circle with all of the significant public buildings constructed around it - Today the Alpha Circle Historic District contains several buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Mining at the Mastodon Mine, and the Balkan Mine became the major source of income for the area, and the reason this Village grew in population. The Alpha post office opened in 1883 and the Village incorporated in 1914. It was a thriving community until about 1958, when the last mine in the area closed. Today, the economy of the Village is based on small businesses, logging and year round tourism. There are many lakes nearby. Two Township parks are located at Buck Lake and Stager Lake for picnics, swimming and fishing. Buck Lake has Walleye, Northern, Largemouth bass, and Panfish. Stager Lake is a Walleye and Northern lake. Alpha Creek, a Type 1 Trout creek circle around the eastern side of the Village. There are large tracts of woodlands in the area provide hunting for Black bear and Whitetail deer, and an active Rifle and Pistol Club is located just outside of town. A main North-South Multi-Use State Trail, which connects to trail in Wisconsin can be accessed a few miles away. The home offered for sale has been in one family for many years. It features a large Entryway with original wood work. It leads to the First Floor Rooms which include a high-ceilinged Living Room, Eat-In Kitchen, and First-Floor Bedroom (with 1/4 Bath). Off the Kitchen is a large Sun-Room Porch with a view of a back yard. The Entryway staircase brings you to a Second Floor landing, off of which are three Bedrooms, and a Full bath. The Full Basement has an oil-wood combination forced air Furnace, and a Laundry area. The home is surrounded by a well kept yard with mature trees, and a detached 22x24 2-Car Garage.
