Don't Overlook The Best Home Values on Madeline Island
Sometimes, the "best buys" in a second home are right under your nose. We've made a selection of properties available for purchase which should be on your radar if you are seriously looking for a home on Madeline Island. In the next few days, we'll be highlighting one of these value-priced Madeline Island homes in each post. Below is our first property in our series of featured Madeline Island homes:
We have the blueprints for this magnificent Lake Superior log home in our office. Ask any log home builder what it would cost to replicate this custom log home, and you'll discover that you couldn't build a feature-packed waterfront home like this one for anywhere near the remarkable asking price of $589,000.
The home's features include four bedrooms and four baths, 250 feet of lakeshore on magnificent Lake Superior on over three acres, with a secluded location at the end of a private roadway. There's a large stretch of sand beach and dock, which is easily accessible by a gently sloping path from the home to the water's edge. Vaulted ceilings, a luxurious master bedroom suite that is one of the best you'll see on Madeline Island, a cook's kitchen, an impressive stone fireplace, walkout level amusement room and a sauna all contribute generously to this home's outstanding features.
This custom log home, built by Hiawatha Log Homes, has been featured in an issue of Log Home Living Magazine. Located in the popular North Shore Heights subdivision, the home is situated on one of only five waterfront lots in the nearly seventy-acre North Shore Heights enclave. A look at the dramatic open floor plan, with generously-sized bedrooms and baths, will tell you why this home deserves a second look.
Best of all, this home has been owner-occupied for years. Smart buyers know that an occupied home (compared to one which is used a couple of months a year and then buttoned up for the winter) tends to be well-maintained, with fewer deferred maintenance issues for a future owner to worry about. The owners have lovingly and carefully maintained their home and lot.
The price per square foot would be low even for a conventional "stick-built" home without the many features you'll find in this dwelling. And you'd find it extremely difficult to locate a vacant waterfront lot with the easy access to the shore and dock, not to mention the superb Apostle Islands views that this waterfront home offers.
