With an Address Like Fire Tower Road…
With an address like Fire Tower Road, you can tell the views are probably going to be spectacular. After all, that’s where the fire tower used to be. Here’s the story… When it gets dry around here, much of our aerial surveillance is now done from small planes. Only a few of the original fire towers are still in use; most have been gone for decades. The only trace that remains is the name of the roads that led to them. Every county has at least three or four “fire tower roads,” and they all lead to the highest ground around.
Homes that have been built anywhere near the sites of these old fire towers are likely to have some of the most spectacular views you’ll find anywhere. Take, for example, this spectacular home that’s built on the highest 20 acres in Bayfield County. And since it’s just a couple miles inland from Bayfield, Wisconsin, it offers an incredible view of the surrounding countryside, Lake Superior, and the mostly-uninhabited Apostle Islands. On a clear day you can see for over 30 miles—all the way to Outer Island.
This time of the year the view from here is mostly blue sky, sky-blue waters, and unbroken forest. You’ll see one or two farm fields, plus the occasional sailbout threading its way through the Apostles. That’s about it. And I can’t wait to see the fall colors from here.
The home itself is as spectacular as the view. It’s a low-maintenance, high-efficiency, super-insulated, 3,447 sq ft retreat that’s built to last and designed for living. The lupines are still blooming, and this home is surrounded by them. It’s also surrounded by deer and other wildlife. Fortunately, the huge garden—complete with raised beds, garden shed, and walkways—is completely surrounded by its very own deer-proof fence.
The home is secluded, private, and quiet—despite being just five minutes from the dining, entertainment, galleries, and other amenities of downtown Bayfield.
