Accepted offer 1926 eclectic-style lake cottage. Upper Lake St Croix, Solon Springs, WI

Real Estate Agent with Edina Realty, Inc. 71260094

Here’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase this 1926 eclectic-style cottage with hip roof built by Joe Lucius. This spacious and elegant cottage is located on Upper Lake St Croix at 9299 E Nelson Ave, Solon Springs, WI. Now with accepted offer.

Massive stone fireplace is the focal point in the large open livingroom with a second-level, three-sided balcony surround, and this hanging balcony is like no other. Family and friends gather in the amazing three-sided porch for lake or star gazing. Four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, including antique sitz bath. Located on large village lot with approx. 90’ of level lake frontage.

You might call it a cottage, because back in 1926 it was built as a summer place and not as a primary residence.  But it’s not your ordinary cabin up at the lake.  It was built by Joseph Lucius, a canoe builder, contractor, and noteworthy local citizen who in 1905 was profiled in the Commemorative Biographical Record of the Upper Lake Region.  A few excerpts: “…Since then he has lived on the Brule River, where he kept a summer resort for several years… Most of the buildings and boats on that romantic and historic stream have been built by Mr. Lucius… He is a contractor and employs a number of men… Mr. Lucius’ own residence, commenced in 1902, is an ideal rustic home, furnished both inside and outside with natural cedar.  This, as well as the club houses he has built, is fitted with water works and other modern conveniences… Mr. Lucius is a man held in great respect by all who know him, and the trust reposed in him has always been amply justified.”
