4724 Takkinen, Chatham, MI MLS # 1119420

Country home, hobby farm, modern construction on 38 acres just outside of Chatham in Alger County. This is a well planned and executed modern development of an outstanding parcel with a quiet country setting. The parcel has 1300 feet of frontage on a year round gravel road that sees very little traffic. The location is just over a mile from a main highway and less than 2 miles from Chatham. Munising is 17 miles, Marquette is 30 miles, and Escanaba is just over 40 miles. The acreage is about 1/3 rolling pasture that is completely fenced and includes a nice apple orchard. The balance is a beautiful mature hardwood ridge that rolls down to a creek bottom on the back of the acreage. The home is set atop the ridge with west and south facing views over the pastures. A private gravel drive loops into the back of the home site with the last portion of it being paved to keep the dust down. There is a large, attached and insulated 3 car garage with additional loft storage. A summer kitchen is attached to the rear of the garage where you'll find a cook stove and utility sink. From the garage, you enter into a foyer with high ceilings and a neat rock accent wall. This flows into the kitchen that is open and finished with the highest quality materials and appliances. Along the hallway, there is a large pantry and half bath. Continue to the master bedroom with walk through closet to the master bath. At the end you'll find a neat sitting with with tile floor and full sun exposure. The kitchen opens to a large dining area with windows on three sides and the main living area which has a cathedral ceiling and stairs to the second level. Upstairs, you have two large bedrooms, each with walk in closets. One has a full master bath. There is also an exercise room with murphy bed and another cozy sitting room that provides views over the pasture. The basement level has in floor heat with stamped concrete and finished walls, so this could easily be used as living space. There are several large storage areas including a cold storage that could be a cellar. A dog shower, half bath, and sauna add function. There is a walkout "tunnel" exit and egress window. The home has hot water heat via European style radiators, in floor heat, and the system is tied into a Garn wood boiler which resides in the detached garage. This unique system is highly efficient. The home is also wired to accept a backup generator with simple plug in located outside with easy access even in the winter. Outside, you'll find a large detached garage with several separate bays, a chicken coop, greenhouse, and a gem of a barn that has poured walls with stone exterior. This is truly a property that has too many features and quality details to cover here. Please follow up for more information. In short, every aspect of the land and buildings is of high quality and has been meticulously maintained. It is rare to have a turn key property of this nature and that is certainly the case with this offering.
