This remarkably private Diamond Lake property has 487 feet of meandering south-facing shoreline and 20 acres of beautiful North Woods forest –  enriched by the serenity and quiet.  Mostly, you will hear the lapping waves of the lake, the wind in the trees and the happy, sometimes haunting, calls of the loons.

Diamond Lake is about 342 acres and is 83 feet deep.   The water is clear, and the bottom is mostly gravel or sand.  It has an average depth of 33 feet. One reason Diamond Lake is so special is that it has an involved lake association that protects the water quality and quality of life on this lake.  Protecting for the future is a positive thing that shows unity among lake residents to keep the environment clean.  Read more about the Diamond Lake Association Here. 

Overhead photos of this property show the long, winding drive to the home that sits on the end of a rounded point.  The prow front of this custom built, 3,065 sq. ft., cedar chalet pays tribute to the glory of this well-loved lake.  Natural light streams into the vaulted Great Room through the floor-to-ceiling windows that frame commanding views of the lake and the sky.

The spacious 30×16 Great Room features a wood-burning fireplace that compliments the angled shape of the prow.  The open layout in this room includes a lake view dining area, seamless flow into the kitchen, office space with custom shelving and built-in writing table  and access to the lakeside wrap around deck.  There is a half bath off the Great Room as well.

The 16×15 kitchen is designed with efficient workspace.  There is plenty of storage in the lovely oak cabinets.  And, there is a breakfast/lunch bar for informal dining.

Of course the 18×25 master bedroom with walk-in closet and ensuite bath includes stunning eastern views of the bayside lakeshore and native perennial gardens.   Looking out the window and into the bay, you can see the “Loon Island.”  The Island is made of cedar logs and natural vegetation and was built in hopes of attracting nesting loons.  It was assembled for the owners by their carpenters when they built this home in 1993.  Loons love nesting on this Island, and they have successfully reared chicks there all but 2 years since it was installed.

The upper level of this lovely lake home includes a 17×16 open loft area that overlooks the Great Room and is privy to bird’s-eye lake views.  A cool feature of the loft is the mini kitchen with a 2-burner cooktop, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, sink and cabinets – all hidden behind a sliding door closet!  The upper level also has 2 more bedrooms and a full bath.

The walkout lower level is a full basement that is partially finished.  Southern windows to the lake bring in quite a bit of natural light. The walls and ceiling are dry-walled and painted.  There is recessed lighting and track lighting in place. The full bath is finished. The designated family room is 31×25.  There is a 18×16 bonus room.   And, there is another mini closet kitchen.  Basically, to finish off the downstairs, the floors in the lower level need covering.

The lower level offers decent space for storage.  There is also an attached 2 car garage and a detached 2-car garage for larger items like kayaks, bikes, boats, patio furniture and garden tools.

While the home is quite beautiful, it does not try to overpower the natural beauty at Diamond Lake.  You don’t find this kind of privacy or amount of land and waterfront very often anymore.  Sand-bottom frontage, a winding drive in through the woods, wild flowers, berries, star-laden skies, sunrises and sunsets – both seen from your deck . . .

And if you need more encouragement to set up a showing of this special place . . .
