LOST LAND LAKE 3 BEDROOM ON 14 ACRES
Northern Wisconsin is a wealth of natural beauty and diversity from its northern forests of aspen, birch, maple, oak and pines to wild rivers and wild lakes to bogs, sand barrens and large, open wetlands. The diversity and richness of northern Wisconsin’s landscape inspired great conservation leaders including Gaylord Nelson, Sigurd Olson, Aldo Leopold and John Muir.
This beautiful home set on 14 wooded acres is a naturalist’s opportunity to own and preserve a private wildlife sanctuary – a property with enough eco-diversity to peak the interest of any conservationist. Privacy is ensured by the home’s setback from the open lake and also from Morgan Rd.
Situated on 14 mostly wooded acres with 420 ft. of sand-bottom frontage on Lost Land Lake in northern Sawyer County, this beautifully designed 2,529 sq. ft. home IS THE PLACE to enjoy the serenity of lake living and year round outdoor recreation. Whether you choose to kayak, canoe or pontoon, fish for your dinner, snowshoe or ski, hike or bike or kick back and watch birds and wildlife in the back yard, this property can promise you all of these activities.
This cedar-sided home features a great room surrounded overhead by an open, U-shaped loft. The tall energy-efficient windows in the great room and the sky lights in the loft bathe both rooms with plenty of natural light. From the great room you can access the 36×10 deck that overlooks a wildflower meadow, the lake ridge and the hidden path to the Morgan Creek Wetlands.
The home’s rooms are beautifully paneled with several types of wood found in our northern region. The master bedroom features birch, butternut, oak and aspen, and the kitchen floor is ash with birch covering the walls and ceiling. Other woods used throughout the home include yellow pine, cedar and hickory. Along with the great room, main floor rooms include the combined kitchen/dining area with a cozy Hearthstone stove, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and an 11×12 carpeted, 4-season room that opens from the great room and overlooks the prairie flower garden.
The lower level includes a 34×19 family room with a Lopi wood stove. A small fire crackling in the stove will keep you warm on those damp fall days and chilly spring evenings. You’ll also find a mechanics room, laundry area, private shower and plenty of storage space in this full basement that opens out to a cement patio sheltered by the deck overhead. The home is also wired for DSL internet access.
You don’t need to worry about storing your vehicles, boats, bikes, patio furniture or gardening tools. The detached 4-car garage is able to handle it all.
This special property’s lake frontage is on Lost Land Lake’s largest bay. Trails from the yard ramble along the shoreline to the dock and follow the lake ridge to the end of the point where you’ll find a viewing bench and an historic cabin nestled among a small grove of giant red and white pines. Frontage here is medium to high elevation and lovely. The view from this point may be the very best on the lake! This home is also available for sale with an additional 16 acres across the road for $389,900.
There is more to explore along the property’s northern wetland border that adjoins Chequamegon National Forest. The rich ecosystem here includes lots of aquatic plants like water lilies, cat tails, sedges, rushes and a variety of shore birds, herons, Sandhill cranes, rails and ducks. Indeed, this is a great property for birding and for photographing birds!
Lost Land Lake is an interesting 1,304-acre lake with 6 creeks flowing into it, including Morgan Creek that filters the National Forest wetland adjacent to this property. Lost Land is connected to 1,049-acre Teal Lake by a navigable channel located around Duck Blind Point at the northeast end of the bay entrance. The irregular shoreline of bays and points, in-flowing creeks and the channel make for ever-changing views, excellent fishing (including Musky) and interesting exploration by water.
