MLS# 1118628 Property Type: Vacant Land Active
Michigan Upper Peninsula 2190+/- Acres of Property With Two Private Lakes For Sale! This property represents much of the best natural resources, wildness, and beauty that the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan has to offer. The 2190.8 acre parcel is located in northern Iron County and includes about a mile of frontage on the Net River, an excellent brook trout stream. The property surrounds 49 acre Hemlock Lake and most of 44 acre Little Pickerel Lake. There is no public access to either lake. Both lakes offer excellent fishing for warm water species such as walleye, bass, perch, bluegill, and perch. The lakes have supported good crops of wild rice in the past. Little Pickerel Creek is wholly contained on the property and forms both the inlet and outlet of Pickerel Lake. The terrain is rolling and completely forested except for lakes, water courses, and wetland marshes. Upland timber has been carefully managed for sustainability and diversity. Aspen, spruce, balsam, northern hardwoods, and pine types predominate. No need to leave the property to go on your own color tour in the fall! A Conservation Easement, held by The Nature Conservancy, exists and applies to most of this property. However, several building site have been held for future development, both on the eased portions and the non-eased acreage. A substantial timber resource is present and represents future income from the property. A new forest management plan for this property is being developed and plans underway to enroll the entire acreage under Michigan's Qualified Forest Act. Properties enrolled in this act qualify for a 16 mill property tax reduction. Wildlife is abundant on the property, including unique and rare species. Game species include whitetail deer, black bear, coyote, bobcat, grouse, woodcock, snowshoe hare, beaver, otter, mink, fisher, pine marten, and diving and puddle ducks. Other commonly seen species include moose, spruce grouse, woodland hawks, bald eagle, wolf, osprey, common loon, and a great number of Neotropical migrant songbirds. Trumpeter swans occasionally visit the lakes. The interior road system has been improved and is negotiable by standard pickup or ATV. In addition, there are thousands of acres of corporate timber land bordering this property for more recreational opportunities. This property is secluded and offers the maximum in privacy. Very few parcels exist for sale that have the outdoor amenities of this northern get-away!
