One of the finest lake estates in northern Minnesota! A gorgeous home less than 15 years old plus 421 feet of hard-sand-bottom lakeshore on one of the cleanest lakes in Minnesota plus nearly six acres of privacy plus a huge Foltz pole building plus a two-room office building equal an almost impossible to find combination of luxury, privacy, lake enjoyment and space. The cabin was built in 2008 and further expanded in 2011 and truly meets the definition of a luxury home. First, let's start with the gourmet kitchen which includes a Viking Range, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Fisher & Paykel two-drawer dishwasher plus a Dacor double-oven along with a two-temperature-zone wine refrigerator and a huge granite center island. The home has incredible woodwork throughout utilizing birch, maple, hickory and alder. You'll find hardwood floors along with custom tile & slate and where there's carpeting, it's among the highest-quality you can find. Speaking of floors, EVERY SQUARE FOOT of living space in the home has hydronic radiant in-floor heating for the ultimate in comfort and energy efficiency (even the garage and the driveway have in-floor heating). The energy efficiency is taken to even greater heights with a geothermal system that saves you money during the winter AND summer. A centrally located audio console center provides for sound inside - and outside! - the house via individually controlled zones where you control not only the volume but the source of your music. A soaring vaulted ceiling provides a stunning feel for the kitchen and the adjoining Great Room as well as for the Owner's Bedroom and bathroom. The view out the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Great Room is a breathtaking one, with a vista of Blue Lake framed by soaring pine trees. This amazing space is complimented by a two-story majestic wood-burning stone fireplace with a huge log mantle. The Owner's Bedroom has the same floor-to-ceiling type windows through which you can see the sun rise over Blue Lake to greet you every morning. The Owner's bathroom has a huge whirlpool tub that can easily fit two adults plus a rain shower. Continue through the bathroom to the large walk-in closet that will provide plenty of space for both her and him (and a convenient storage space for off-season clothing). An expansive first floor laundry room houses a top-of-the-line LG washer/dryer combo plus a gorgeous copper sink and plenty of cabinet and counter space, in addition to a 2nd refrigerator/freezer. Continue up the extra-wide stairs with accent lighting to reach a HUGE den and recreation room, complete with wet bar, 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound and enough room for a poker table, a pool table -or both! You'll also find two bedrooms on that level, each with their own mounted adjustable tv. They'll share a first class bathroom with its own rain shower and heated towel bar. Finally, the garage is fit for a King with heated floors, drains, a faucet with both cold and hot water, the ubiquitous sound system and its own adjustable tv.
The office building has two carpeted rooms with both heating and air-conditioning as well as an attached four-car tandem garage. But for real storage space, you can't beat the 2,560 sq ft Foltz Company-constructed pole-building with 12 foot high garage doors, 14 foot high cross-beams and a 45 year warranty on its main post infrastructure. This building alone would cost you almost $100,000 to build today.
The luxury of the cabin is matched by the incredible beauty of the lot it sits on and the shoreline along Blue Lake. At just under six acres, you'll enjoy great privacy and a true sense of "getting away from it all." The views of the lake you'll get through the soaring pine trees will take your breath away, and you won't have to worry about any neighbors intruding on your private family time by the lake because you have a long stretch of 421 feet of frontage that's all yours! A maintenance-free lakeside deck will provide hours of sitting and enjoying the lake and watching your family members frolicking in the water. A boathouse provides for storing plenty of water toys and comes complete with a refrigerator ensuring that you'll never be more than a few steps away from a cold beverage! The deck has low-voltage lighting for late evenings and has multiple outlets to power your phones, speaker systems and anything else you want to run there.
This amazing property has to be visited to truly appreciate how special it is. But act quickly, because it likely won't be available for too much longer!
