YOUR OWN NATURAL PRESERVE ON 300 ACRES IN NORTHWEST WISCONSIN
Exceptional Privacy . . . Peace . . . and Quiet . . .
There is NO property like this for sale in northwestern Wisconsin: 300 acres of Old Growth Forest . . . 6 natural, private lakes . . . and a beautiful architect designed home with stunning views of both woods and water.
The contemporary 3 story, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home is designed to celebrate the natural beauty that surrounds it. The western cedar-sided home has a green metal roof, two large red cedar decks, a glass solarium, large open kitchen /dining area, a stone fireplace with an electric lift wood box, a 4-season attached greenhouse, an attached 2-car garage and a fieldstone garage outbuilding with a cedar shake roof.
Sitting in the glass solarium in any season is wonderful. Glass above and all around brings nature in. The decks are suspended in the trees and give a squirrel’s eye view of the forest and Foxfire Lake – the lake where the home is located.
Some home features include a master suite with walk-in closet, Jacuzzi whirlpool and glass shower, a guest bathroom with a Kohler steam shower, an upper level bedroom/office with walk-in storage and a loft, central air, a security system, WiFi thermostats and high speed fiber optic internet.
Most captivating about this land are the trees. The home is surrounded by pines 120-150 years old! There are stands of towering Grandfather white pines mixed with sugar maples, oak and birch. 80% of the forest on this property has not been cut since the logging days of 1897.
The wilderness lakes in this glaciated area of Wisconsin range in size from 4 to 10 acres and are a result of the melting ice shield. Some have good fishing for largemouth bass, crappies and panfish. These are crystal clear lakes that never see a motor. Two of the lakes, including Foxfire Lake, have WI DNR approved aerators. Wildlife viewing is enhanced by the aerators that bring otters to the lake in winter to fish in the open water and migratory ducks in the spring when all other lakes are still frozen over. From your doorstep, you can take a leisurely hour long walk on wide hiking trails and visit all 6 lakes. Bird watching is phenomenal here.
The property is preserved by a conservation easement with Landmark Conservancy and is surrounded on 3 sides by Sawyer County Forest. A conservation easement is a legally binding agreement that protects a natural area from development and specified activities that may degrade it while the land remains in private hands. Owning a conservancy property is a wonderful privilege! This is a rare opportunity to step into the stewardship of this stunning piece of land. View Survey.
Located 30 minutes from Rice Lake or Hayward, WI, less than 2.5 hours from the MSP airport and 4 hours from Madison, WI, this property has easy access as well as total privacy.
