Loon Lake. Custom designed 4 acre estate property year round
SEE VIDEO This exceptional, historically significant five bedroom home was built for family living, recreation, entertaining and relaxation. Properties such as this come on the market less than once in a generation.
The property, on 5.54 acres with approximately 700 feet of water frontage is the finest spot on Loon Lake. Loon Lake, an inland lake within a 30 minute drive from Thunder Bay is one of the most sought after locations in Northwestern Ontario because of its convenience to the City of Thunder Bay and its International Airport.
Walking into the grand formal entrance, you will be immediately taken in by the exceptional architecture and historical significance of the home, while at the same time captured by the magnificent views of the lake and perennial gardens.The original 110 year old log home has been meticulously preserved while at the same time it has been added to and upgraded to provide every convenience and luxury. The home boasts a large, modern kitchen that was professionally designed to blend into the period of the home with solid hickory cabinets. The original wooden doors take you to the East Patio and Lawn. Enjoy a game of bocce ball or shuffle board while barbequing dinner.The 58 foot long covered porch faces the lake. Half of the porch is screened in for those lazy naps or dinners lasting late into the summer evening.
