Season End Values on Delavan Lake

     Summer is near its end, but the values continue to emerge on Delavan Lake.  The best values are for those seeking a smaller lake property such as a two-bedroom house or a one-bedroom condo.
     In particular, you can purchase a two-bedroom, two-bath home with extensive lake views, private pier, remodeled kitchen and gas fireplace for only $395,000.

Extensive lake view from master bedroom balcony.
     Located at the end of Lakeshore Drive, just off of the South Shore, this home has been brought up to date with a newer roof, mechanicals, windows and carpet.  The main floor features an open concept living area with direct views of the water, kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and wood floor.
Cozy up to the fieldstone fireplace on the chilly winter nights.
     Upstairs are two large bedrooms, a shared bath, and a private balcony with spectacular lake views.
     The home is ready to use and enjoy and is the least expensive lakefront on the market.
Located at the end of Lakeshore Drive, the home has a seawall and garage.
