Delavan Lake Breaks $1 Million Mark for 2014

     Delavan lakefront property finally started heating up this year with the first sale of over $1 million.  The property, located at 3020 North Shore Drive, sold for $1,080,000 in a cash transaction last week.
3020 North Shore Drive, Delavan Lake
     Situated on 221 feet of prime Delavan lakefront, the home has a wooded North Shore entrance winding down past a Frank Lloyd Wright designed barn to the secluded waterfront setting.  The building consisted of four bedrooms, four bathrooms, with a walkout lower level.
     While in need of some updating, the construction was solid and the property was well maintained.  Whether or not the home will be renovated or razed is yet to be seen.

     Also selling last week was a prime South Shore parcel with 104 feet of level frontage and marvelous sunset views.  The parcel, located around 3117 South Shore, sold for a bargain $780,000 and stretched over 1300 feet deep encompassing over 2.9 acres of land.

     The new owners will be constructing a new home nestled between a couple of other recently constructed retreats.  This is the first vacant parcel sold on Delavan Lake in two years.  The lot next door sold in 2012.
