About the Property

4 bed, 4 bath, sleeps 12. Resort home on Bass Lake, Heated Swimming Pool, Sauna

Beautiful Home on full recreational, no public access BASS LAKE in Plymouth. There is over 100' of private lake frontage for fishing, boating, water skiing, kayaking and all fun water activities on this 165 acre lake! Additionally, there is a 40' heated in-ground pool with diving board at deep 10' end of pool. There is also a shallow area in the pool for small children.

This is a very peaceful setting and you will love watching the wildlife, including a pair of Loons who nest every year, numerous duck and geese families, eagles, visiting egrets every summer often seen resting on dock and an assortment of songbirds! Yet, you are but short ride into downtown Minneapolis for all that urban life offers as well as an equally short ride to the village of Wayzata with its restaurants by the water of Lake Minnetonka and shopping the lovely stores on Lake Street. If you're looking for shopping malls, you are only 4 miles to Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove with plethora of stores and restaurants.

There are three bedrooms, two with Queen beds and one with king-size bed. Additionally in the walk-out recreation area there is 'bedroom' for two more persons, with bath with shower. The 1950's Swedish Day Bed sofas in the TV room on main level provide additional sleeping for two more persons. There are three full bathrooms and one half bath plus private office space. ALL of the rooms with the exception of one bedroom have views of the lake! There are three decks, all overlooking the pool and stunning lake views.

The first level contains formal living room, formal dining room, TV media room, office and well-equipped 'cook's' kitchen plus a screened-in porch for summer lounging and dining. The kitchen has two sinks, one for prepping and one for clean-up. The design of the kitchen makes it easy for the cook to efficiently prepare food as well as entertain in the kitchen when guests congregate!

The pool is heated and is a great lap pool as well as diving pool and shallow area for children learning to swim. The views from the pool of the lake are spectacular. The backyard is enclosed by fencing which is covered in wild grape vines. Other plantings of towering arborvitae and flowering hydrangea plantings ensure your privacy. There is also an outside sauna near the pool providing relaxation and health benefits.

As indicated, this property is very convenient to downtown Minneapolis less than 9 miles from the house to center of Minneapolis. The property is also less than 9 miles to the charming village of Wayzata with trendy shopping and restaurants. There are also many restaurants in Plymouth less than one or two miles from the house so that you can maximize your fun in the sun by the lake and pool and not worry about cooking; however the kitchen is a cook's delight and has all the amenities you would expect!
