Own the Waterfront in Paradise
This spectacular property is minutes northwest of the Village of Paradise, Michigan. Nearby Whitefish Point is known for its Shipwreck Museum and as one of the finest migratory bird observation areas. Here hawks and songbirds gather to rest, feed, and prepare for their voyage across the great lake. This deep blue water and deceptively peaceful setting hide many historic shipwrecks. One is more recent: the great freighter immortalized by Gordon Lightfoot in his haunting song, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, battled a hurricane north wind and came to rest nearby.
This land is believed to be the largest parcel of sand frontage currently for sale on the south shore of Lake Superior. The "littoral drift," movement of sand along the shore propelled by prevailing Northwestly winds, has carried sand here to the east end of the big lake. For the most part, Superior is not a sand lake like its more civilized sisters to the south. This is a rock lake that gave up riches in copper and iron to iron men. Almost all the best undeveloped sand frontage is in State ownership. Most large, privately held sand beaches have already been developed into home sites. Few that remain enjoy the privacy available here.
The State of Michigan owns the mile of shoreline to the east, the adjoining land to the south, and thousands of acres of wild land and lakes behind the shoreline.
