Description for 4800 E Highway 61, Hovland, MN, 55606 - Superior

Here is a home with character to match the qualities of the Great Inland Freshwater Masterpiece: Lake Superior. A good chunk of land is the foundation to this extraordinary property: 4.4 acres and 455â?? of frontage. Itâ??s just not easy to find these big lots with all their privacy, woods, elbow room and myriad shoreline. Thereâ??s ledgerock galore and a cobble beach that churns like a bowling alley when the Norâ??easters roll in. No problem weathering the storm, this home is anchored to terra-firma, the ancient bedrock thatâ??s been minding its own business these past millions of years! Inside are TWO dramatic stone fireplaces, pieced together by master stone masons from the offerings of the beach. The home is earnest near itâ??s stone hearths, whimsical in the open air loft overlooking the Big Lake, watchful out the walls of windows and most of all celebratory: a gathering place with space for the whole gang! Folks can spread out and find their own nook for a conversation, a couch for a glass of wine and reflected moonlight, tucked away bedrooms with roofline ceilings for dreams upon dreamsâ?¦ Or come together in the spacious kitchen, where the action always is, comparing notes on the next big adventure. Send the kids downstairs to the game room complete with pool table and more. A bit of the bones of earth is visible down there as the foundation curves right along the ledgerock. How cool! A couple large decks meander around the home, always providing the comfy spot to study the ways of wind, shore, forest and rock. The place is private! Canâ??t see a soul. Large three stall garage has you covered. New roof, boiler, flooring, railings, stove and oven! The owners have loved it up and are ready to hand it on. They also developed a nice rental following should you care to make some income on the place. East of Grand Marais locale keeps it quiet. But only 15 minutes back to town. Judge Magney is just down the road for hiking or head to Naniboujou Lodge for a good meal: see who has the cooler stone fireplace. Not far to Grand Portage fun, or heck up to Thunder Bay for shopping, good eats and Fort William. Mostly, youâ??ll want to stay put. The away-from-it-all vibe is intoxicating. The sylvan interior finishes mellow the spirit. The sheer number of windows is thrilling. The ambiance is all its own, as unique as that Big Beauty Gitche Gumee right outside the door!
