Welcome to a year-round vacation on the Chain O’ Lakes! This home has been tenderly loved and updated within the past 5 years. Nearly everything inside and out has been touched and is top quality. The views from this house are absolutely outstanding, and the yard is an unheard-of size for the area. The property consists of three parcel lots, for a total of approximately .82 acres, including 90 feet of river frontage and a 50-foot-long sandy beach!

This home is located above the lock and dam, which means navigating upriver to the 10+ lakes on the Chain is quick and easy. The structure itself stands outside of the flood plain, with FEMA paperwork to support it. No flood insurance is required. The home is east-facing, so you’ll enjoy beautiful sunrises while gazing at the river.
