It’s hard to find north woods lake property for sale with a private sand beach, and the beachfront at this Island Lake 2 bedroom home is magnificent.  Virtually all of it is pure, light sand.  Swimming here is what families dream about – crystal clear water and a hard-sand bottom that gradually slopes into the lake.  Towering pines –campfire cookouts at the beach – loons calling at dusk – this is what lakefront living is all about!

The 2,300 sq. ft. home features a main level with a wood-burning fireplace and hardwood floors in the living room, kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms, two full baths and laundry room.  The lower level is a full, walkout basement with a carpeted family room/ bar that has an electric fireplace, a full bath, an 18×12 bonus room (often used as extra sleeping space) and the mechanics room.

Outside you will find many pleasant surprises.  There is a 3 season bunkhouse “attached” to the main house by a shared deck.  There’s a sauna building with a dressing area, wood-fired sauna and water lines. The 3-car garage provides ample space for bikes, canoes, fishing gear – all your outdoor sport equipment!  There is also a small workshop and storage shed.

Contrary to rumor, there`s more than one season!  While fishing, swimming and boating are pretty popular choices in summer – don’t forget winter.  Cross country skiing at the Tomahawk Lake trails is about 1.5 miles away.  This park is maintained by the town of Barnes and has a sliding hill plus is used for mountain biking spring through fall. Snowmobiling is big in this area, too, with hundreds of miles of groomed and mapped trails ready to explore December to March.

Island Lake is 59 acres and a whopping 51 feet deep.  Many lakes surround it including the famous Eau Claire Lakes chain.  If boating is a big part of your recreation life, there are thousands of acres of water to discover within a 20 mile radius of this beautiful lake home.
