This remarkable home features an exquisite melding of rustic elegance, artistic flare and today's conveniences overlooking picturesque Silver Bay. On the mighty Michigamme River this fascinating property was built for a wonderful year round living experience or to be enjoyed as a "camp" or lodge. Silver Bay open up on the Michigamme and with views from atop a gently rolling slope it appears as if you are overlooking a peaceful sparkling lake. The sheltered waters of the bay are famous for excellent fishing year round and make entering the river by kayak or canoe much easier than trying to enter the rapidly flowing waters elsewhere. The original log cabin is loaded with historic charm featuring a working stone fireplace, spacious screened room, a charming summer kitchen, extra sleeping room and memories of yesteryear. The 1973 addition has 3 levels inspired by artisans who's vision of a today's living was enhanced by the use of natural materials of stone and local wood to start. The materials used in much of the log structure were painstakingly reclaimed from local barns and homes no longer in use with the names and dates of previous owners carved into the massive timbers. Twelve foot concrete footings support huge boulders used for the walls in the lower level family room with a bathroom, working decorative cast iron wood burner, giant beams and large windows with river views. Another bedroom on the third level also has great views overlooking the waters and a master bathroom. The main floor is so loaded with interesting features conversation starters seem to jump out right at you in this truly one of a kind home. The ceiling and floor joists in the three story section are 12x12 timbers and the walls are 8x8 square logs with dovetail and overlap corner joints. The spacious main floor also has a large wood burning brick fireplace serving as the focal point for the room which is flowing and open to an appealing kitchen and dining area. The original cabin has many unique features such as knurled lilac door handles, a summer room overlooking the river, triple layered solid wood doors and impressive built ins. Even the two car garage has been given the same attention to detail as the main home. It even has a pit to help with working underneath the vehicle. The grounds are private and landscaped with a wonderful stone patio and sitting area overlooking the bay and a fire pit near the waters edge. The shore is easy to enter with no big hill do cope with. With over 20 wooded acres there is plenty of extra room to hunt, hike, or possibly allow guests to camp on and your privacy is protected.
