Envision a home built around your desires for privacy, space, comfort and style. Envision a home built for relaxing and entertaining – a home where time for naps and novels is plentiful and where plein air dining on the deck with wonderful lake views is a special treat for family and guests.  Set this home at the end of a private road lined with towering hemlocks and pines, a road that winds through 16.2 woodland acres out to Reykjavik Point and 1,500 feet of outstanding lake frontage, and you’ve found Reykjavik estate, a magnificent property on island-studded, 3,227-acre Lake Namekagon (Bayfield County’s largest inland lake).

From the outside, this 6BR/4.5BA home is charming with natural cedar shakes and warm rustic trim.  Inside, the home brims with fun, contemporary touches.  The home’s 5,660 SF provide for an upper level master suite with a lake-view bedroom, a walk-in closet and a master bath.  A free-standing walkway from the master suite leads to a 13′ x 23′ executive office. A line of windows surround this room filling it with light and scenic lake views creating a comfortable getaway for work or leisure.

Just inside the foyer entry, the soaring 2-story stone fireplace draws your eye to the floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room.  While the outdoors serves as the centerpiece in most of this fabulous home’s rooms, the great room and its dramatic panoramic views is the ultimate window seat of Lake Namekagon.

The combined kitchen and dining area is 35’ x 16’.  This spacious room is cheery and bright with lake views and views of the great room.  The kitchen features include a breakfast bar, a pantry with built-ins and a dining area with a buffet, wet bar and a serving station.  There is a garage entry from the kitchen that passes through a tiled laundry room.

The kitchen also overlooks the 15 x 15 den. The windowed den faces the lake and has access to the 24×16 lake side deck.  An extension of the great room, this space is defined by a 10 ft. tongue-and-groove wood panel ceiling and square pillars. The main level also includes a foyer entry powder room, two 14 x 14 bedrooms and a full bath.

The lower level spacious family room (30 x 16) has a stone fireplace, built-in entertainment center, built-in speakers, a tiled studio kitchen and wet bar and a walkout to the lakeside patio.  Guest accommodations and children’s quarters are here including 2 full baths, 3 bedrooms, a 24 x 17 bonus room and lakeside access.

Other wonderful features of this Lake Namekagon Estate include highspeed fiber optic internet,  an electric (off peak) forced air furnace and an LP gas forced air furnace, central air, central vac, home humidifier and recessed lighting throughout.  The attached heated 2-car garage has a finished interior.

BUT – there’s much more to explore.  The property includes several historic lake cabins dating back to its days as Breezy Point Resort.  Guests and family will enjoy the two year round guest cabins and the 3-season cottage with stone FP that sit a mere 15 ft. from the lake.  The cabins have lakeside porches, wood floors and adorable north woods interiors.

Check out the area and you’ll find world class cross-county skiing and mountain biking and numerous outstanding restaurants & cafes.  This is an established vacation area with all the touches you’d expect like tournament golf courses and little resort towns like Cable, home of the American Birkebeiner Ski Race.  Explore Cable’s shops and museums. Learn about its rich logging past and area legends. There are also things you might not expect here like a one-room, historic log library and an award winning natural history museum that offers a variety of classes including nature photography, wolf howling and wildlife garden design, a Community Farm and an organic farmer’s market.

Summer here is swimming, water-skiing, fishing, sun and paddling or sailing.  Fall and spring are great times to hike and enjoy forest colors. Winter brings skiing, fat biking, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.

The time you spend here will become a memorable part of your journey through life.  So bring on children, best friends, family and at-the-lake birthday parties; bring on children leaving home and holidays when they return with children of their own.  Bring on the generations of family and your legacy at this spectacular Lake Namakagon 16-Acre Estate!
