Design and quality materials meet elemental beauty and the deep, wild woods of the Gunflint Tr. The result? An architectural gem on Tucker Lake. The home is a delight of angles, light, loftiness, coziness, and gee-whiz moments. A one of a kind getaway - simultaneously contemporary and age-old with warm wood paneling, slate tiles, wood stove, sylvan beauty aplenty! The lived feeling of the home is: comfort, away from it all, time out of time, class-act. A space so well executed that those who enter feel uplifted, charmed to find such elegance and comfort in a wilderness setting. There is a spirit here, it gets into the souls who dwell here, who gather: as family, as friends, as adventurers, as amateur ornithologists, mushroom collectors, etc. Those seeking retreat, whether abiding here year-round or coming for short stays, will be enriched, rested, inspired. The home was conceived by Minnesotas own, the Cabinologist himself, Dale Mulfinger. Dales getaways dot the landscape around the wilds of this country, finding one for sale is a rare bit of luck. (Building one today, oof, would take a pretty penny!) The windows are all just so, the roof a meander, the floor plan all angles. The initial impression is Suessian, a whimsy is stirred in the admirer, a long ago dream evoked to build a fort out in the woods or up in the trees. Yet, unlike those youthful efforts, everything here is modern, masterfully done. The current owners have loved it up: up to date and upgraded. Next folks can show up, get a cribbage tourney going, then wake the next day for some exploring. Tucker is three miles long, 40 deep and all the walleye are above average. The west end of the lake is in the BWCA! A big ol white pine anchors the property in the past, more recently oaks were added to bring a bit of the south up, and they are thriving. Nearby, is a vast Black Spruce forest: mysterious, dreamy - beautiful verticality. Two nice bedrooms, and a cute little storage area that the current owners have a bed in for overflow. One full bath, so nicely appointed luxury. In a moment of inspired practicality, a toilet was added in the private utility room in case a crowd is around, gramps is not done, and junior needs to go right now! The kitchen is perfect, you just have to see the living room to believe it. The glassed-in porch is a cool triangle of relaxation and contemplation. Head up or down the Gunflint a short drive for several fun restaurants. Return to a Northwoods Classic.
