3 BEDROOM LOG/HISTORIC HOME ON 40 ACRES IN CABLE, WI
The pristine forest setting of this homestead that dates back to 1918 provides us with a glimpse of the magnificence of the north woods during its logging years. The super giant white pines were taken before 1918, but the impressive, old-growth stands on this property tower several stories high. The acreage borders Chequamegon National Forest on its western line and is located across the road from National Forest, too! The surrounding forest is a privacy buffer that also expands the horizons of this property. Hiking, berry picking, wildlife watching and hunting are all activities you can do in the forest – and right from this wonderful homestead cabin. While very private – this property is only 8 miles from Cable.
The 2,136 sq. ft., 1.5-story, year round home is a combination of old and newer construction. Around 1970 a log addition was added to the original, wood-framed home built in 1918. The original home features maple floors throughout. Genuine early 1900’s hand-craftsmanship is found in the doors, wooden latches, stair banister and ripple glass window panes. The historic section of the home includes all three bedrooms, a full bath and the 15×15 kitchen.
The log addition is a true Great Room. The room is fabulous with open log beams and a wood burning, split-stone fireplace. While the kitchen is spacious enough and offers room for casual dining, there is a more formal dining/entertaining area in the Great Room addition. This room can’t be matched for overall charm. Perfect for your treasured antiques. Perfect for comfy over-stuffed chairs. This is the perfect home for hosting an old-fashioned Thanksgiving dinner for family and friends.
There are also a few outbuildings on the property: a 2-car garage, “grandpa’s workshop” with original work bench and shelves and a storage building that also houses the laundry room.
Near a public boat landing 0n Lake Owen, minutes from both CAMBA trail heads and Birkie Trail access, this distinctive homestead property is central to outdoor recreation here. Great place to keep a low profile, exercise and relax!
