Residential - 1 1/2 Story

Searching for your year-round home or cottage on Portage Lake? Here it is! Beautiful home on Portage Lake with sandy lake bottom and great area for swimming, fishing, boating and enjoying the wildlife with the natural setting and view across the lake. The south end of the lake has so many advantages. The calmness of the lake gives many opportunities for paddle boarding and kayaking – whether it’s through the Princess Point Nature Area or through the Sloughs Wildlife Area. Take a quick boat ride or ATV to White City Beach into the Keweenaw Bay for the afternoon. The home has beach areas where it is sandy and has a gradual slope to the deeper area of the lake. Great setting to enjoy at the waterfront with gazebo and sitting area as you watch the beautiful sunsets or enjoy the firepit at the lakes’ edge. A sauna with dressing room is located right at the beach where you can take your sauna and swim. Home has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with living areas with large windows and views of the lake. The main floor includes mudroom, kitchen, dining area, living room with gas fireplace, family room, 1 bedroom, laundry room and a 3/4 bathroom. Upstairs you will find two bedrooms, full bathroom and loft area great for your office or sitting area. The lower level is one open room for a possible 4th bedroom or rec room. Although you enjoy the remote setting, the home still delivers paved road, natural gas, and great high speed internet access. New natural gas heating system with central air (high efficiency, 3 zones servicing all three levels) was installed in 2021. Living room has gas fireplace insert for heat or ambiance. The detached garage has 2 car stalls, a 28x11 heated workshop and storage (approx 12x26) on the upper level. Home is situated off of the road for privacy and with a nice yard between the house and lake. Driveway is paved. Charter Spectrum cable is available for excellent service. Original home was built in 1995, addition in 2000. Crawlspace does have concrete floor. Some furnishings will remain at the time of closing. Available separately: Dock available.
