Description for 6081 Whitetail Ridge Rd, Silver Bay, MN, 55614

Mountaintop living on Minnesota’s North Shore! The home was designed by Minnesota architect David Salmela, internationally known for his artful marriage of modernist and traditional Scandinavian forms. The home is anchored to ledge rock and rests on a 6.7 acre ridge top lot with unparalleled views of Lake Superior and the wild country of Tettegouche State Park. Lofty Red Pines crown the lot and a nice mix of Boreal Forest surrounds the home. Finish materials are all of the finest quality. Light pours into the home, a defining characteristic of all Salmela homes. Very private and quiet locale. The home is being sold for a fraction of the cost to build it. The seller will provide a list of repairs and improvements needed to dial the home in for its next owners. The rugged mountainous setting, and a home that comes with some projects, is not for the feint of heart. The next owners like a challenge. They enjoy the natural and wild county of the North Shore and place a premium on high quality design and finish materials. Above all, the new owners have kept in mind an ideal, pursuing a long held dream of finding a home in a pristine setting, thoughtfully laid out, with all the modern comforts, artfully appointed, and away from everything in this rush and hurry world. This is that place: the modern version of the mountain lodge built on the pick of the litter lot!
