This slice of North Shore heaven includes a stunning chalet style home and a charming guest house all with spectacular views of Lake Superior and just 10 minutes from Duluth. The main home was built in 1945 by a Swiss architect as his home away from home. After driving along Lake Superior’s Shore, pull into the driveway and stop for a minute to take in the character of the main home. Notice the Lake Superior field stones that surround the first level, and the balconies accessible from each room on the second story. Continue up the driveway and around the back of the main residence to get your first look at the guest cottage, and detached garage. You will see that a boardwalk connects the two homes making it very convenient whether you have overnight guests, or permanent residents in the 4 bedroom cottage. Now it’s time to head into the main residence to find a lovely mix of old world charm, and modern updates. This three bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home features a kitchen with custom pine cabinets, Italian ceramic countertops, pine hardwood floors, stained glass, and a fabulous view of the lake! The living room is warm and inviting with many points of interest including the gorgeous wood-burning fireplace and the double entry diamond willow curved staircase leading to the second floor. On the second level, you will find the incredible master suite with panoramic views of Lake Superior , two private balconies, a peaceful sleeping area, relaxing sitting area, and an en suite bath with jetted tub. Also on this level is a second bedroom with its own private balcony, and a three-quarter bath with private balcony. The third floor is a private bedroom suite complete with it’s own bath including a clawfoot tub. Closets on this level have been custom built under the pitched roof for additional space and lined with cedar for great storage. Now let’s talk about the guest house! It is an open concept, wheelchair accessible four bedroom home with a large deck and enclosed yard for pets or children. The current owner calls the guest home The North Shore Retreat, and holds a license for lodging from the Duluth Township. Most of the furnishings are available to make for a turn-key business! This property is zoned commercial so the possibilities are endless. At one point, the current owner had an antique shop in what is now the guest house. Need more incentive? Just cross North Shore Dr. and take the permanent public stairs down to the beach and have a bonfire!
