ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
Built by skilled woodworkers, this extraordinary house must be seen in person to be fully understood. Two octagonal 2.5 story towers are connected by a wide two-story solarium. The main floor includes living-dining room, kitchen, a bedroom and bath, as well as the solarium entry hall. A double-helix spiral staircase leads to a bridge between the towers and two second-floor bedrooms, each with bath, and built-in walnut and cherry ladders that reach the cupola rooms. One cupola has a built-in desk, and both have 360-degree treetop and lake views. All rooms have many large windows, most with lake views; several have additional Velux skylights. Hardwood and tile flooring run throughout, with custom woodwork everywhere. Top-quality appliances include washer, dryer, and dishwasher. Extreme care taken in insulating double-thickness walls and maintaining integral vapor and wind barriers keeps heating needs minimal. More than 10 acres of hardwood and conifer forest has 600 feet of Lake Superior frontage accessible by stair, facing Basswood Island in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Outbuildings include a two-car garage, a small boathouse, and a potting shed, all matching the style and quality of the house.
