153 Forest View - Motivated seller! This 14 year old ranch style home is located in the middle of 20 quiet, private acres of mostly wooded land just a few miles from the friendly small U.P. town of Iron River, MI. The main attraction here is quiet and privacy, surrounded by nature. The house is set far back from a low-traffic road. Features include a large master suite with jacuzzi tub, shower stall, dual sinks just off the living area. The living room has a large picture window overlooking the field and parking area, and has a wood burning fireplace. The dining area has a patio door that opens onto a rear deck that overlooks the back of the home, and is the perfect size for grilling near the dinner table. The kitchen has a large amount of counter space and storage and a spacious walk in pantry. At the end of the kitchen is the upstairs laundry/mud room with a small porch accessing the north yard. The basement is unfinished, perfect for converting to a rec room. The lower floor is at ground level in front, with a 1car garage & workshop space. A wall separates the garage/shop from the rest of the basement, which is about 2/3 of the lower level. Primary heat is LP forced air. Also installed are three LP wall heaters to efficiently heat single areas of the home on colder evenings. Secondary heat is a forced air wood furnace located in the downstairs garage, with a stainless steel chimney behind the house. A large concrete pad directly behind the home could be converted into a large patio area, or parking for RVs and other vehicles year round. An older wood fired sauna is located directly behind the house which can be made usable with minimal effort and cost. Central a/c is installed in the main furnace. Well water quality is excellent. Multiple apple trees are on the property, as well as many wild and tame raspberry bushes. In front of the house is a very productive rhubarb patch. A detached garage with cement floor, metal roof and siding is located close to the north side of the house. It’s large enough to fit 2 vehicles and several snowmobiles and atvs. North of the detached garage is a fenced in 30 x 60 ft garden positioned to receive maximum sun. Wildlife such as deer, turkeys, partridge, and rabbits are a common sight on the property and make for entertaining viewing from the deck. Nearby attractions include Ottawa National Forest bordering the property. The home is 2 miles from Ottawa Lake which is surrounded by National Forest land and is completely undeveloped except for a campground and park with hiking trails and pavilions. Boat launch is next to the park, and the lake boasts good fishing. Make this your retirement getaway, home away from home, hunting property, or just to escape to a simpler, quieter way of life.
