Description for 6125 Hwy 1, Silver Bay, MN, 55614 - Baptism River

Imagine your own classic North-woods lodge in a state park-like setting. This 5800 square foot - 8 bedroom - custom built log estate is situated on 32 incredibly serene and secluded wooded acres. A spectacularly picturesque quarter mile stretch of the Baptism River is yours on both banks. Cast your line for rainbow and speckled trout. Skinny dip in your own private "swimming hole." Create your own personal spur trail to the Red Dot/Moose Walk snowmobile system as it skirts the NW corner of your property. After the snow melts, hike it to Tettegouche State Park and the Superior Hiking Trail. You will share your new property with fox, snowshoe hare, deer and the occasional moose, to mention just a few of your new wild neighbors. This home is situated just 3 minutes up the hill from Minnesota's Lake Superior North Shore and borders Tettegouche State Park to the west and Finland State Forest to the east. This impressive structure combines authentic Norway Pine log beauty with the integrity, stability and insulating advantages of 2x6 framed construction. Perched in a clearing high above the river, the generously allotted windows and high ceilings allow natural lighting to flood the home's interior and reveal breathtaking landscape vistas in all directions. There's a huge deck and screened porch overlooking the river, perfect for that big family summer barbecue. With 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a large laundry room, an office/guest room, modern kitchen, 2 dining and 3 living areas, this would make an ideal family retreat. And zoning even allows for 3 additional riverfront structures. The upper level includes 3 spacious bedrooms and an expansive master suite with Vermont Castings stove. All 4 include custom en-suit bathrooms with jetted tubs and 3 have private balconies. Comfortable and casual up north decor features cedar trim, reclaimed hemlock floors, log beams and custom ceramic tile throughout. This estate was designed with the utmost attention to every detail and the result is a feast for the senses. Three large living areas - including 2 with stone fireplaces - can be utilized to suit the new owner's needs. Built with energy conservation in mind and comfortable in-floor heat throughout. Completely hardwired for TV, phone, in ceiling stereo speakers and high-speed fiber optic internet. Your investment is protected by interconnected smoke detectors, whole house surge protection and a whole house fire sprinkler system.
