Three Lakes, Wisconsin in only five miles from this beautiful Virgin Lake lot for sale. Part of the Three Lakes Chain, Virgin Lake is a 276-acre clear-water lake with a maximum depth of 31 feet. For a lake lot in this area, this is a very private and secluded location on a quiet dead-end road.
The waterway from the chain-o-lakes to Virgin Lake is more limited than other lakes which makes Virgin Lake much quieter and more private than most of the other lakes on the Three Lakes Chain. Even though there is a boat launch, the only boats on the lake usually belong to other Virgin Lake property owners.
The boating is complimented by fishing for Musky, Panfish, Largemouth, Smallmouth, Northern and Walleye. The quiet waters of Virgin Lake are inviting to Loons and bald eagle. An island owned by the State of Wisconsin completes the scenic beauty of this Oneida County lake.
This Virgin Lake lot for sale has 148 feet of shoreline on .82 acres of wooded land. Some may like a little more land on their lake lot, but the size on the actual ground is offset with the way this lake lot pies out from the road and gets wider approaching the lake. Mostly level contours right off the road to gentle contours down to the lakes shore invite either a level or walkout cottage-cabin-house construction.
Existing lake homes on either side of this vacant lake property allow the next owner to maximize the home site location in relation to the neighboring existing houses. The power and phone hookups are easy with lake houses developed on Virgin Lake Road having already brought in these utilities.
The seller of the lake lot shared the following comments about Virgin Lake, “My mother lived in the cottage next to this lake lot and we had many great memories spending weekends and vacations at Virgin Lake. We have always done well in fishing (both summer and ice fishing) for walleye, perch, sunfish, smallmouth bass, northern and musky on Virgin Lake. It is a very clear lake with a lot of structure for fishing including around the island. In fact, just out in front of the lot we are selling, there is a man-made crib about half way between the lot edge and the island that provides great fishing activity. The lake is also a spot to commonly see loons, bald eagles, and whitetail deer. The only reason we are selling is that we are avid bow hunters and would get more use of a hunting land parcel than we would with the lake lot. We would love to keep both, but have decided to focus on our hunting property.”
