This waterfront A-frame cottage on a full acre lined on two sides by mature pine trees has charm. The cottage is sturdy and has unique architectural details, including a spiral staircase, a loft within a loft, and beautiful solid wood paneling. There is plenty of living and sleeping space, making the cottage functional as a primary residence, vacation home, or rental property. The home has been well maintained and various improvements have been made over the past year.
Layout: As you enter the cottage from the front door, you immediately see Lake Superior through the panoramic windows. A half bath is on your right, followed by a nice-sized closet. To your left are the stairs to the lofts. As you walk forward and enter the great room, you’ll find a remote-powered gas fireplace, living area, and dining area. The full kitchen contains all major appliances, including two dishwashers. Taking the stairs from the first floor to the loft, you’ll find a multi-functional open loft space. This space has served as an office, bedroom, and another common living area. There is a full bathroom off of this space with a standup shower. From this loft area, you’ll find a ladder that goes into the peak of the cottage. This space can be used as a fun, cozy nook. It also fits a mattress and can be used as a fun sleeping space. Taking the spiral staircase from the main level to the lowest level, you’ll find another living room/common space with a sliding door out to the shore and a second gas stove. Two bedrooms can also be found on this level, one of which has a Lake Superior view. The utility room is also located on this level and contains a washer and dryer. Evolve Iron and Manganese filtration system is installed and a recent water test indicates very high drinking water quality. The furnace is just a couple years old. Outside of the sliding door is an outdoor shower system that can be used to wash the sand off of your feet before you enter the cottage.
The water’s edge: Per best practice for lakeshore protection, the shoreline in front of the cottage has been reinforced with boulders and rip-rap to protect from strong Lake Superior waves. A sturdy metal staircase has been installed down to the private beach cove.
Property: There is a solid wood shed on the edge of the property. There is also a large fire pit area great for social gatherings. Next to the fire pit area is an old gardening area that could easily be restored. Cherry trees, raspberry bushes, and other mature foliage can be found on the property.
