NOW INCLUDES A NEW KOHLER 2-PERSON BUBBLEJET 'CORNER' TUB (WITH HEATER) IN MASTER BEDROOM OVERLOOKING THE DECK/LAKE. New landscaping including a cement walkway to the lake, firepit and a new, 8 foot x 8 foot sandbox for the kids.
The real, split stone fireplace is the centerpiece of the great room which has cathedral ceilings into the upstairs loft. It has almost 300 feet of level, sandy lake shore and is located on a private, dead-end road. A new golf course (Black Bear Golf & Tennis) and some of the best, leisurely canoeing in Wisconsin are only minutes away (on the Namekagon River which is part of the pristine, completely undeveloped St. Croix National Scenic Riverway). The Totogatic cross-country ski trail is nearby as well.
The house sits at the bottom of a hill on almost five acres of land and faces the east for beautiful sunrises every morning. It is located on the 271 acre Kimball Lake Chain which is recognized as one of the cleanest and quietest chain of lakes in northwestern Wisconsin. It is also an excellent fishing lake known for crappie, panfish, bass, northern pike and walleye. Eagles, turkeys, loons, deer, fox and many other critters abound.
The entire first level consists of slate floors (which stay very cool) and many shade trees surround the house. The house has both forced air heat and central air. There is a two car, heated/air conditioned, attached garage that has been turned into a game room which contains an electronic dartboard, pool table, foosball and ping pong table. New lawn furniture and a gas grill are provided as well. A canoe, horseshoe pits, paddleboat and oversized swim raft are included. The on-site pontoon and fishing boat/motor are available as well.
Up the spiral staircase, the master bedroom has a new 17' LCD TV over the Kohler whirlpool tub and three large windows facing the lake. And both the master bedroom and kitchen have built-in custom butternut cabinets. Facing the lake is an expansive, wrap-around cement patio, as well as, another deck on the second level which overlooks the lake from the loft/master bedroom area. Other amenities: Jenn-Air range, real granite countertops, Kohler faucets/toilets, TVs/VCRs/DVDs in all 4 bedrooms as well as the great room and in the garage/game room area.
As for the lakes Lower Kimball Lake is 129 acres, it has a public boat launch site and is eight feet deep. Middle Kimball Lake is 98 acres, has its own island, is 77 feet deep and is great for water-skiing/jet skis. Upper Kimball Lake (where this home is situated) is 47 acres and ten feet deep. There are less than 20 cabins/homes on the entire lake which has almost a mile and a half of lakeshore (so the lake lots average over 300 feet of very private lakeshore).
All three lakes have crystal-clear water, great fishing and are navigable by the on-site fishing boat and pontoon. Swimming is excellent right from the dock (very sandy, gradual depth).
The 'Minong Flowage' is about a mile away as are over a dozen other clear-water lakes within 15 minutes. A hardware store/gas station (w/movie rentals) is only 2 miles away as well. Hayward, WI is about 25 minutes to the east (3rd fastest growing vacation destination in the country with many shops, restaurants and summer events) and Duluth, MN is about 45 minutes north (great shopping, boating/fishing on Lake Superior). Hope to see you soon!
