Stunning, gorgeous, artistic, unique-- so many different words to describe this property! First of all, the builder was a local artist and constructed this cordwood home in 1991. Briefly, a cordwood home is constructed with 16" logs placed end wise in mortar with insulation in between, making the walls, of course, 16" thick (R-24). Enter into the main hall with soaring ceiling, which can accommodate a 14' Christmas tree, and a new sliding glass door leading to the "park" that is the yard, and the hand-crafted circular stairway that accesses the second floor. The living room is off one side of the hall and the huge dining room with pocket doors are off of the other side. The kitchen has a lovely corner pantry and additional floor-to-ceiling cupboards just around the corner. The kitchen also features a large snack bar. The entire first floor has newly refinished gorgeous oak plank floors. Near the kitchen folding doors hide the washer and dryer and the propane boiler and water heater. This hallway leads to a log cabin attached to the front of the home which was originally an 1800's tool shed. The owners have used this room as a family room and a bedroom. A stone fireplace with a marble mantel is in this lovely bright room. Behind this is storage room which could be converted to a bathroom, or large closet or both. The second floor features a large bedroom with walk-around closet, a smaller bedroom with built-in shelves and a huge room with a unique ship's fireplace as the center piece. A bath with walk-in shower is also on this level. The 1.68 acre lot is beautifully forested, with many gardens and lawns. A small pond fed from overflow from the artesian well is in the center of the lot, where the owner keeps goldfish year-round. The waterfront is a large sand/pebble beach, showcasing those gorgeous Keweenaw sunsets. This is a one of kind Lake Superior Home!
