25 minutes from downtown Duluth, this beautiful home is situated on 10 acres of pristine woodland in a way that ensures its worthiness to withstand possible climactic and environmental changes to our area. Far enough north of Lake Superior, you’ll miss the cold winds of early summer. The Lake heads off the strong storms that come from the south & southwest. Sellers say that no pesticides or herbicides have been used on the property and there’s a large, established organic garden. Sellers believe that this could be one of the most environmentally friendly homes in our region! The “megastorm” of 2016 took down many thousands of trees in our area and knocked out power to residents for many days; this property suffered no damage to structures and was never without electricity due to the solar power storage system. 9.2 megawatts of solar panels and 24 large lithium batteries store power for your back-up needs. Many months the current owners sell electricity back to the grid. Highly efficient rigid foam insulation contributes to the overall strength of the structure, making it sturdier in heavy weather. The south facing Argon passive solar windows provide warmth and great views of woods & wildlife. Located on a high elevation in this Watershed, the likelihood of suffering damage from flooding is small. Owners suite & laundry are on the main floor. The loft offers two spacious bedrooms and a full bath. The lower level features a family room with huge windows and another BR + 3/4 bath. The 3-car garage is attached via a spacious mud room. There’s a heated barn in back with running water and a fenced arena. Situated near about 4500 acres of state forest land, the new owners of this special and unique property will enjoy wildlife, skiing, hiking and all that the seasons have to offer in northern Minnesota.
