2 Acres and 145' of waterfront on no-wake lake.  Beautiful, peaceful building site.  Camping is ok.  Upscale development in heart of Northern Michigan 1/2hr east of Traverse City.  Underground utilities and paved private roads.

This property is in Luce County in the Upper Peninsula, about 60 miles NW of Mackinaw Bridge.   It fronts M-123 and is less than a mile north of Newberry (snowmobile & moose capital).  Parcel has high ground and is easily accessed.  Apple tree on property so good possibility you could get a deer with a bow here.  Electric is close.  Campers are okay.  The parcel is deep so you can get back from the road for privacy.   Tahquamenon River is walking distance so fish is easily on your menu.  Very affordable piece of property to enjoy all the U.P. has to offer year round!

This property  has a beautiful view of park across the street and walking distance to Iron River.  Property includes 3 lots which equals 1/3 of an acre (135.5' X 120') .   The above plat shows the proximity to Iron Rive.  rThis would be a great place to build a seasonal cabin.  It's in the village but it doesn't feel like it due to it's proximity to river and parks that border it.  Close to maintained bike/walking trail and ORV trail.   I picked this parcel up at a tax sale for next to nothing and I'm going to sell it to the first person that has $400.    Taxes are current and I will issue warranty deed and take care of all paperwork and recording fees.  Title insurance is not included and may be an issue due to tax sale status

Price is low due to title insurance issue, it's in the village limits which means you'd likely need to tie into water/sewer. 

I don't want to hold it so I'm 'fire selling' it.

Secluded, wooded parcel in a great recreational area in the heart on Northern Michigan.  Electric is on the road going to a couple other seasonal cabins.  Property has an area that has been used for a bonfire.  Would not be hard to open up an area to park a camper.  No problem to park your camper, year round if you want.  Public boat ramp to all sports spring fed Bear Lake (used by area scuba divers to train due to its clarity) is within 1 mile.  Drive your snowmobile or ATV's right to hundred's of miles of marked DNR trails.  Easy access to parcel with frontage on Ironwood St.   This "street" is a dirt road that is accessed by other roads that are privately maintained off East Bear Lake Rd.  

 Western U.P. - Walk to Iron River!


   Vacant parcel close to Bear Lake

Cute Fixer Upper!  This home has been vacant and is ready for new owners.  Nice large lot, quiet neighborhood with garage in back (needs work).  Walking distance to park with playground.  2 Bedrooms upstairs with original wood floors.  The main house roof is not leaking but is definitely showing it's age. It needs plumbing repairs and a good cleaning. It is on a basement with access to plumbing.  Toilet needs to be replaced.  Could definitely use cosmetic upgrades as well as some newer windows.   The back addition roof that includes the bathroom, closet,and laundry needs some attention.  The roof has been patched but it really should to be replaced.  The lot is adjacent to railroad tracks.  I think this is pretty cool but someone else may not think so when the train comes through.

Due to our inventory I'm selling as is right now-- price goes up when we start making improvements.
