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.

     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.

     The best views of the homes available is at 1500 South Gazebo Drive.  This spacious two bedroom is listed for $299,000 and has sweeping views of the main park and Delavan Lake.  Although it is the smallest of the four available, its location is in the middle of the action with shuffleboard and beach access just steps away from the living room.
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.

     The four bedroom, three bathroom home sold for $740,000 and was a solid value for the new owner.
