Why Caroline McGrath chose Eldred
My husband and I have always owned a weekend home and found ourselves looking to purchase anew - always wanted lakefront - particularly on a sandy bottomed lake where one can walk straight off the property and into the water. Within two minutes of entering this house my husband and I looked at each other - thinking....this is it......it really is an idyllic setting.
What makes this house unique
The idyllic setting - on two wooded acres - only steps to private beach and dock where one may enjoy swimming, boating and fishing. Sit on the deck - watch bald eagles fly overhead - humming birds at the feeder......paradise......
