Lake front parcel in the upper peninsula's north woods ready to build your dream cabin. This surveyed wooded parcel with 324' of frontage on fence lake in baraga county provides for gated privacy on a semi-private lake which is known for trophy smallmouth bass, large perch and rainbow trout fishing. The lake is 310 acres with pristine water depths to 50 feet, 4 islands and many coves, points and bays. I have personally fished this lake and it is one of the best in the northern midwest rivaling the boundary waters area for quality. Fence lake is part of a large wetlands complex that feeds fresh water into the lake along with the springs and fence river flows out of the lake. This parcel is high, rolling with easy access to the lake. There is a rock pier that protects the private boat launch where you can launch boats, kayaks or canoes. This also provides for an excellent location for a roll in dock. Swimming here is wade in ready and you will enjoy the clean, cool waters of fence lake. There is a motor restriction on the lake to protect the environment but motors are allowed. This parcel has a cleared building site of about an acre that is tailored for any type of construction you may desire. This site allows for wonderful views across the lake yet provides for ample privacy off the road. The seller is licensed to install septic system and can assist the new owner with septic services if desired. Electric is already onsite so all you will need is a plan, drill the well, hire the seller to do the site work and septic and you will have your cabin in time to enjoy into the future. The property is accessed by a year round county road and the private road is plowed and maintained year round for a fee of $400. Access is via a private automatic locked gate which the owner has found convenient to operate while limiting access to only the property owners on the lake. Protective covenants are provided to ensure quality, privacy and value. Fence lake is a special place with beautiful woodlands, very high quality lake, year round amenities and this specific parcel has been carefully groomed for the new owner. If you are looking for an exceptional upper peninsula inland lake front parcel you may not find a better one than this.
