Description for 7044 W Highway 61, Tofte, MN, 55615 - Superior

Expansive views over the Grandest Great Lake of all. This Tofte home has the best of both worlds: high and dry above the Big Lake with a unique perspective on the surrounding Superior ways: birds, churning waves, colorful skies, and cliffs. Then, head down to sprawling beautiful ledgerock: smooth, accessible, dynamic. There is a firepit area, a picnic table and several ways to head down to the lake. Though, most will take the boardwalk path along the stream that rolls and tumbles home to Gitche Gumee. The land, woods and shoreline here are quintessential North Shore. The Tofte locale is central to all the fun: meal at Bluefin, head up to the BWCA along the Sawbill Tr, hike the Superior Hiking Trail, run up to Lutsen for skiing and golf, Grand Marais is not far, down to Tettegouche for a picnic. The home is all comfort and ease with a classy design sensibility. Lots of windows and decks to appreciate the natural beauty. A couple stone fireplaces warm the soul. Dreamy kitchen with granite countertops. Large and private main floor master bedroom with oversized bath and master closet. Lot of rooms for friends and family. Put a few up in the “map” room and still a few more bedrooms to house a crowd. Or make one an office. Roomy garage for all the gear and toys. Downstairs is full of glass toward the lake, too and has a wet bar and lots of space for games of cribbage, TV, or just hunkering down with one of Sigurd Olsen’s books away from the crowd upstairs. The current owners have everything dialed in just so: nothing to do but show up, relax, and take in the cool, pristine air of the North. Sold fully furnished.
