Rec Rooms and Party Rooms: Not Just for Extroverts

Rec Rooms and Party Rooms: Not Just for Extroverts

I love homes that feature spaces like these. Although they’re great for entertaining, they’re not just for extroverts. Some families use them to gather around for a weekly video night. Other families, especially those with teenagers, value togetherness but also appreciate a little elbow room. And if some members of your household are sports fans but others are not…

And certain spaces are just right for certain occasions. A few close friends? Maybe you’ll spend the evening in your kitchen, dining room, and living room. A few more friends, and a few more glasses being poured before the big game? Time for a room like this one.

(By the way, this rec room is just one of the outstanding spaces in a lake home I’m currently listing on the Minong Flowage. Keep scrolling for a couple photos of the exterior. And to learn more, please visit my Edina Realty website.)

About Whitefish (Bardon) Lake

Compared to most other lakes in northwestern Wisconsin, 832-acre Whitefish (Bardon) Lake is different in two ways. First, although a number of fine homes have been built on the lake, special shoreland zoning ordinances have done much to preserve the lake’s natural and scenic beauty. From your home at the head of Whitefish Lake, you’ll be able to look southward across a huge expanse of water whose shore appears largely uninhabited. The lake is wild enough, in fact, so that eagles and loons are spotted frequently. Second, the lake is deep, cold, and clear. According to the DNR, it has a maximum depth of 102′ and a mean depth of 30′. Over 60% of the lake is deeper than 20′, and less than 4% is less than 3′ deep. Secchi disk readings average 22 to 23′. The littoral bottom is over 95% sand; most of the remainder is rock rubble. The lake boasts an unusual two-story fishery, with warm-water species in shallow areas and trout in the depths. In recent years, the lake has yielded a number of trophy-class pike, walleye, largemouth, smallmouth, and trout (both brown and rainbow). The lake also contains bluegills, rock bass, perch, white suckers, and creek chubs. Conveniently located. Spooner, Hayward, and Superior are all within 40 minutes. It’s an easy 45-minute commute to Duluth, and it’s just 2.5 hours to Eau Claire or the Twin Cities. You’ll find small public airfields at Solon Springs, Hayward, Spooner, Shell Lake, and Superior.

It’s a great time for luxury home buyers. More luxury home for less money.

For possibly the first time ever, jumbo mortgage rates are lower than conventional loans which means that luxury home buyers can borrow more money at a lower rate. Jumbo mortgages are typically defined as loans over $417,000.

Interest rates for jumbo and conventional mortgages are expected to remain equal for a few months, according to Chicago-based mortgage banker Guaranteed Rate, but will likely increase with the improving economy. So, if you’re looking to purchase a new home or your second home in NW Wisconsin, now is the time to capitalize on the rare opportunity.
