Land Description

Upper Peninsula Inland Lake Home For Sale - Near the Historic Village of Big Bay. It is located on the northern shore of Lake Independence, in Powell Township, in the North-Western part of Marquette County. Powell Township includes about 45 miles of Lake Superior Shoreline - with coves, sandy beaches, sandstone bluffs, and granite outcrops to the north and east. Prominent landmarks are the Big Bay Point Light House (built in 1892) that stands on a high rocky bluff, and the Village of Big Bay - which were both named after Lake Superior's Big Bay Harbor of Refuge. The Township includes the 16,850-Acre McCormick Wilderness Tract to the west, which has 18 lakes and the Yellow Dog Wild and Scenic River, and the ancient Huron Mountains. Lake Independence is nestled at the base of these mountains, just south of the Big Bay Point, and its northern shoreline lays only about 3/4s of a mile south of Lake Superior. The lake is 1840-Acres in size, and about 30-Feet deep, and has a sandy bottom and gravel beds for spawning. It is recognized as one of Michigan's finest fishing lakes. It is known for walleye, northern pike, jumbo yellow perch and small-mouth bass. The Yellow Dog River which flows into the southeast end of the lake is a fine trout stream. Alder Creek flows in on the southwest side of the lake. The Iron River is its only outlet, into Lake Superior.

“Autumns Golden Splendor” is a fitting name for this property. Down a hardwood lined drive you arrive at the home site on this private 3.50+/- acre parcel. A paved parking area leads you to a covered back porch on the north side of the one-story Ranch Style home. You enter into a wide entrance way, flanked by storage on one side, and a large room with a view of the front yard, and the lake on the other side. Currently used as a Utility Area, it could easily be converted into a third Bedroom suite. Further down the hallway you enter an Open-Concept Living, Dining, Kitchen area. The Sitting area features warm tongue and groove pine walls and ceilings, carpeted floors, a large Lake Superior stone fireplace with wood mantle and Lp Gas Insert, and views of the lake. Moving into the Kitchen you will find a spacious Serving Bar with seating for casual dining, and a food preparation area that is updated with the finest oak cabinetry, counter tops, tile backsplash and floors, fixtures, and appliances. For lake view dining and relaxing there is a window lined Four-Season porch. It spans along the south side of the home, and provides access to 13x21 exterior deck for more outside entertainment space. The home has two spacious Bedrooms and an updated full Bath. The lakeside of the home features a gently sloping yard leading to 300+/- feet of sandy shoreline, with a natural point. You can launch your boats, kayaks, and canoes from the boat lift - and wade and swim here. The north side of the yard has a 28x32 Garage with workshop, 12x22 Wood Shed, and 12x24 fabric Pole Building. There are two Gardens, a Raspberry Patch, and a Mushroom Garden.
