HISTORIC 5 BEDROOM CABLE LAKE HOME IN CABLE, WISCONSIN
There’s a reason historic lake homes command beautiful settings – the original owners had first choice of the land, woods and water way back when. Built in the 30’s, this 5 bedroom home was the centerpiece of a large family farm. It has stayed in the family and been passed down through the generations all these years. Now we are offering it, first time on the market, with 8.5 acres and 394 ft. of spectacular Cable Lake frontage. This was never an ordinary farmhouse. The interior is grand with raised panel ceilings and walls, splendid oak floors, double hung windows (original framing) that slide up and down with ease, original French doors and a full length, enclosed porch that overlooks the lake frontage. The elegance tells a story of family pride and prosperity not usually seen in a north woods, 1930’s farm home.
Yes, the exterior color is bright. The siding is mostly in good shape, though. A rich color scheme that blends the house into its wooded setting would meld the exterior with the unexpected, fine qualities inside.
The home stands tall – has a good foundation. It’s a restoration dream. The original interior is not violated. It’s the same as it was when it was pridefully built. You must see the beautiful wood work and patinas yourself to understand. This is craftsmanship and quality that can’t be replaced.
The west-facing frontage is lined with giant white pines and is sheltered in a bay. There’s a sand and rock bottom with some soft bottom, too. Clear water, good swimming and a very PRIVATE setting.
Cable Lake is 166 acres and is 43 ft. deep. It is a drainage lake that maintains its level with inlets, outlets and springs. The Cable Lake Association actively protects the pristine quality of life here.
Less than 1 mile from Cable – at the very end of the road – this special, old home deserves a family that loves the wistful and refined days of yore.
A 3-car garage and full size barn complete this lake home listing.
