Old World charm and craftsmanship meet 300’ of Lake Superior beach, on 4.36 acres! Hard to find these large, secluded properties these days. Tucked down and secluded, this home was creatively and lovingly built as the private getaway of one of the Northshore’s premier builders. The architectural detailing is fairy tale. The vibe is timeless, combined with ease of spirit and mind. Come down to the beach to begin your virtual tour: sand, cobbles and gravel arc along Gitche Gumee’s sweet water. The cobbles form a color chart of miles of local geology, swirled together and set just-so after each churning. Turn now to a bench of land, a natural buildsite tucked below another slope far from the highway. In early times it would be an ideal camp. In the late 70s our builder knew he found the ideal locale, so he put up a dream he had: the main home just the right size and a guest cabin, each bedecked in all the little matters that count. Carved birds soar out of the gables, there's scrollwork, tin filigree, a sauna. The fireplaces, those beach cobbles came in handy, each a masterpiece - roaring delights. Step inside: hard wood floors, paneled ceilings with Northwoods detailing, a screen porch for drinks, laughter, contemplation. The kitchen looks over the Big Lake for inspiration: fried herring! The living room fits everyone for charades, gin-rummy, or heck have Christmas here! Head out the front door and upslope into the woods. The conifers keep the world at bay, a handmade gate for the ages says this is the place! Come back down the driveway and take a second look. It’s sinking in now, this is the one. That’s how the current owners reacted when they bought it. They’ve loved it up and now look to the next stewards to do the same. Come have a look, just down the road from Schroeder, close to the mighty Caribou River. Unwind, relax, poke around a bit. See if your dreams and goals fall into place here.
