Year End Sales Boost Activity on Delavan Lake

     A couple of late sales boosted the overall activity on Delavan Lake this year.  While lakefront sales have been slow for most of the year, two November transactions pushed the total dollar sales to over $8.5 million.
     The first sale was the mulit-structure property at 2666 Willow Point Drive.  Situated on Delavan's North Shore, this waterfront complex included a four bedroom main home, a five bedroom guest home and a two bedroom cottage.  Sacrificed at a bargain price of $950,000 the buyers purchased some instant equity and their plans for additional updates will only drive the value up further.

     The second sale was located at 3307 South Shore Drive.  This major lakefront estate was constructed for the late Edward A. Brennan in 2002 as a summer retreat for the Chairman and Chief Executive officer of Sears Roebuck and Co.

Instant Equity Available on Delavan Lake's North Shore

     A slow selling season has created a unique opportunity to receive some instant equity on Delavan Lake.  The sprawling lakefront at 2666 Willow Point Drive offers a future owner the opportunity to cash in on a discounted price for an updated home.
     The desire to purchase a larger residence, has prompted the owner of the Willow Point property, located along the North Shore of Delavan Lake, to reduce the list price of their 1.36 acre complex to $200,000 less than is was purchased for and this does not account for the $250,000 in improvements that have been made over the last eight years.
     I often see lake property seekers looking for the best deal, being able to take advantage of a situation and make out like a bandit.  Here is that opportunity.
A sprawling lakefront enclosed porch spans the entire front of the main home.
     Listed for $1.249,000, this unique home site includes a four bedroom main home resting on 83 feet of prime mid-lake frontage and an additional five bedroom guest home set back towards the 275 feet of roadside frontage.  Across the private drive is an orchard, natural meadows, and hardwoods that will protect the privacy of the residence for years to come.  Along the lakeside are million dollar lakefronts which insure the value of the investment even in turbulent times.
     What this property has to offer, besides some instant equity, is an updated interior, in both the main home and the guest house, a first floor master suite with radiant heat in the bathroom, jetted tub, natural fireplace and sprawling lakefront porch.  The newly installed hardscape off the main house features a lakeside fire pit and inviting pergola for relaxing and winding down at the end of the day.

     Views off the private dock are serene and welcoming for guests as they tie up for an afternoon of sun and recreational water sports.
Room for boats, jet skis and swimmers at 2666 Willow Point Drive, Delavan Lake
     There is more than ample room for guests in the five-bedroom visitor home that includes its own expansive deck with water views and shaded comfort.  The main floor of this guest house is open concept with hardwood floors, a breakfast bar, and first floor bedroom.
     Kids can let loose in the lower level recreation room that has a walk out to the yard and lakefront and another bedroom to spread out the visitors.
     Upstairs in the guest house is a full master suite, with gas fireplace, tub and walk in shower.  Views of the lake can be found in most rooms and the whole complex flows in a carefree setting.
     It's a retreat.  It's a compound.  It's a private sanctuary on Delavan Lake.  A unique opportunity for a lucky buyer that can take advantage of the chance to put some instant equity into their real estate portfolio and have an investment that can be enjoyed for years to come.
A complete complex with main home and guest home flowing together to enjoy lake living.

Limited offerings in Delavan's Assembly Park

     Assembly Park, on Delavan Lake's north shore has always brought a premium to other lake associations in the area.  With its social atmosphere and collection of six parks within a park, the area has been a top draw for residents in the northern suburbs looking for a place to escape for the weekend or the entire summer.
     Cottages and homes have often transferred from one generation to another or with some inside information limiting those that came on the market for the general public.  Normally we would see six or seven homes listed with brokers for $300,000 or less at the start of the season.  This year, there are only four options available for someone wanting to join the close knit action in the Park.
     The lake access homes currently available start at $189,000 for a three bedroom on the main entrance to the park.  The property at 1636 Assembly Lane is has lake views, a first floor bedroom, natural fireplace and deck that fronts to one of the private parks in the association.
1636 Assembly Lane offers lake views and a one car garage.
     Further up Assembly Lane, at 1617, is a renovated two story with three bedrooms, two baths and a private patio off the back of the home.  Listed for $259,000 it is the most updated of the four offerings but does not offer any parking other than on the street in front of the home.
1617 Assembly Lane is the most up to date of all the offerings in Assembly Park
     Closer to the lake is 1413 Indian Trail.  This three bedroom feels like a classic lake cottage with  an open concept great room, natural fireplace and updated kitchen and master bedroom.  The house is listed for $249,000 and has the luxury of a detached two car garage and plenty of parking for the owner and guests.

1500 S. Gazebo gives views of the lake from two sides of the home.

Slow start to Delavan Lakefront Sales

     Activity this year is sluggish so far for Delavan Lakefronts.  There have only been two sales completed by the end of April and three additional homes are under contract.
     Both of the sales were on the North Shore of the lake.  The first was a family home on 50 feet of frontage located at 2336 North Shore Drive.  The home was in disrepair and in need of attention.  Despite the poor condition, it received two offers for its purchase with one of the buyers hoping to endeavor on a major renovation project.  The home ended up selling to one of four siblings for $537,000 and sits in more of a deteriorating state than one of renewal.

     The second sale was also on 50 feet of frontage, just around the corner from the first sale.  An absolute contrast to the first sale, this home, at 2366 North Shore Drive was in fine condition with many updates and modern amenities.  The home featured a first floor master suite with separate office, walk-in closet and bedroom fireplace.
     In the main house was a remodeled kitchen with granite counters, new flooring and lake views.  The enclosed front porch area was the main feature of the home along with level frontage and a lakefront deck that can be used for entertaining and relaxing throughout the summer months.
