Property description

Round Lake is known for being the gem of the Gull chain. Large enough to accomadate all but the largest boats, but yet small enough to avoid the rough water of larger lakes. Round interconnects with Gull Lake allowing you to boat to many of the fine restaurants on the chain with mooring facilities. Round Lake is known for its water clarity, hard sand bottom and few weeds. Truly a premier water recreation lake.

The waterfront is a picture perfect sand beach and nearly a flat grade extending over 200' landward. A lush lawn that is perfect for croquet, ladder ball and other yard games---all provided.

Plenty of outdoor table space and lawn chairs to enjoy your evening dinner while hearing the loons call. Large, 12' , firepit to enjoy a late evening campfire and smoors.

The home has two huge wood burning fireplaces and a natural gas fireplace in the master suite. Two of the five bedrooms have king size beds and the remaining bedrooms have queens. The master bedroom suite has a private bath suite and one of the bedrooms also has a private bath.

The Kitchen has dual built-in ovens, cooktop, microwave, trash compacter, dishwasher, coffee makers (pot & single cup) hot water dispenser and is fully equipped with cooking utensils, dishes, silverware, etc. Formal dining room has seating for six and dinette will seat four. Kitchen snack bar seats also seats four.

Both the TV Room and Family Room are equipped with 60' HD Plasma Home Theatre systems. Each has a dedicated DirecTV satellite receiver as do all of the 5 bedrooms. An extensive video library is included as well as a music library stored on the home server and accessible via satellite receivers as well as other home theatre conponents. Four wifi hot spots with coverage that extends throughout the property and well beyond the shoreline.

All bathrooms are full baths with a tub and shower. Top Floor common bath has a Kohler Body Spa. Master Suite Bath has two person whirlpool tub and separate shower. There is a total of 355 gallons of hot water heater capacity.

A large natural gas grille near the water front for outdoor grilling assures there are no LP tanks to go empty. A food prep counter in lower level of beach house supplements the grille and keeps you close to the waterfront activities

Swim raft, Water slide, canoe, paddle boat, swim tubes, life jackets, and beach toys are all included.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: A warm hello from Kurt and Tami! We consider ourselves truly blessed by God's gifts to us and that we can share them. Both of us were born & raised in the Brainerd Lakes Area. Kurt operates a communications business and Tami is a school administrator. Part of Kurt's upbringing was in the building trades. Being blessed with the abilty to learn and implement skills, Kurt designed and built much of the home himself. Being a bit of a perfectionist and a gadget lover, the attention to detail is obvious and the home has many, many extra features.

Why the Owner Chose Nisswa:
Kurt's grandparents owned property on Round Lake when he was a boy, in the '60s. Since his boyhood, it was always his dream to own a Round Lake property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A summer morning swim to the raft in water that is mirror smooth under a bright blue sky is simply awe inspiring. An evening pontoon boat ride for dinner at the Quarter Deck is a picture perfect close to a wonderful day on the lake.
