Property Description

Tucked away in the heart of its surrounding 50 acres, this rustic yet gorgeous log cabin stands as a testimony to what can be achieved when a new owner takes a hand built shell of a building and turns it into something amazing. Just within the last few years, this log cabin has been transformed with the help of an artist owner, two well known local craftsmen and the owners family who had the ambition to help carry out the vision of what this place could be. Its 1600 ft of finished living space from top to bottom. Massive beams run the length of the ceiling in the great room. Large windows and skylights cut into each corner of the cabin flood this space with natural light. The custom built kitchen cabinets are "one of a kind" made with 100 year old wood and topped with handmade Maple butcher block counter tops. The cute "old fashioned" stove and refrig are propane operated. The hand painted ceramic tile back splash and recycled leaded glass windows above the counter add to the rustic charm of the kitchen, including the open shelving to display pottery or collectibles. Throughout the main floor is wide plank maple flooring in a light grey stain, helping to keep rooms light. The master bedroom is on the main floor and you'll be surprised to see a sunken tub in the all new bathroom. Massive living room with space enough for large furnishings, most of which could potentially stay with the cabin. New roof in 2018. The propane Kohler generator will stay, along with the power inverter system. There is even a shed built specifically to house this system and give you additional storage room. The crawl space holds the water filtration system, giving you potable water from the well. Much of the wood to build not only the cabin itself but also the interior finishes are right from the property itself! The second floor is just as impressive as the first with two additional bedrooms and a large, open space that might make an awesome billiard or game room. A new owner could install a large wood stove and heat the entire cabin. Enjoy the 20x40 cedar deck outside with special detail to allowing water from the roof to flow through the deck boards and into the ground. The property itself is absolutely gorgeous! Various man made ponds and streams can be found, along with frontage on Johnson Creek which can lead you right into Lake Independence. The Iron River and Lake Superior are just North of this parcel. Enjoy waterfowl and various wildlife. This parcel has a beautiful mix of towering pines and oak with the marsh to the south facing the Huron Mountains. Trails throughout make it fun to explore the woods or the various ponds and streams. This is a very unique property started by an avid outdoorsman named Harold Jensen. Ask your agent for additional info on this special man and the history of this beautiful place. This could be ideal for a Hunting Lodge!!
