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.
