Lake Superior living with a Sand Beach! Parcel number 61 in Bayfield County perches on a solid sandstone bluff 63 steps above Lake Superior and your own private Lake Superior beach. Expansive views, and a private, custom built staircase (52 years old and going strong!) bring the lake into your life. Built in the late 1950's by a local carpenter with a passion for quality, this home has been in the family for the past 60 years. The sandstone bedrock beneath explains why this shoreline has remained essentially unchanged and sound for half a century. Expansive lake views grace the kitchen, family room, bedroom, and especially the living room, with its large picture window. The floorplan is excellent, with an attached, insulated 2-car garage opening onto an entryway with connections to the family room with wood burning stove and also to a hallway which runs behind the kitchen and down to the basement. From the family room, two steps up take you to the kitchen with hand built birch cabinetry with a Scandinavian feel. The large living room is quiet, with room for gatherings, and a beautiful view of the lake. Two bedrooms and a large bathroom complete the first floor. Washer and dryer could easily be relocated to the main floor bathroom and linen closet. Structurally in excellent condition, noteworthy features of the property include a full, completely dry basement with perfectly straight and sound mortar joints, a foundation built into the underlying sandstone, 1" thick tongue and groove pine planks with cedar siding, new roof, replaced with architectural shingles in 2012, recent, 95% efficient gas furnace. Water heater and pressure tank replaced 5 and 6 years ago, approval granted for a lake facing deck by county zoning and additional buildings also approved with the removal of one of the outbuildings. Outbuildings include "The Boat House" which stood on the beach and was relocated to the south of the house a few years ago and enclosed. You can still see the pulleys inside. An additional pole barn on the very southern end of the property has one larger door and is also well built. The snow-machine shed can be used for lawn equipment as well. The tri-county corridor near the road is sunken below the house level, so the property remains quiet and peaceful. Very solid construction throughout includes plaster board interior walls, (not lath and plaster), excellent insulation with low utility costs, and a garage built on concrete footings.
