Explosion Lake House for Sale - Townsend, Oconto County Property

Secluded lake house situated on a quiet channel on beautiful Explosion Lake. Part of Townsend's chain of lakes, this lake house offers boating to Reservoir Pond, Horn Lake & Little Horn Lake. 617 total acres of boatable Wisconsin Lakes with each lake suitable for various kinds of boating or fishing. This is a real house, not a cottage. For anyone that wants to live, retire, work or play in the Northwoods, and not spend all your time fixing up an old cabin, this is the lake home for you. This waterfront home only needs a little TLC to be in move-in condition. Only 90 minutes from Green Bay.

Lake House Info

Built in 1992 this one story waterfront home has two bedrooms, one full bath and one half bath. The estimated square footage is 805 square feet. An unfinished basement has eight foot ceilings. The stove/range and refrigerator are included, as well as the washer and dryer which are hooked up in the basement.

A small deck welcomes guests and visitors at the front door. A larger deck on the back of the house offers secluded views of the lawn and water.

A large, attached, two car garage also opens to the waterfront side of the lot through a single garage door for practical storage and backyard access.

The home is clad in practical vinyl. The water system is comprised of a sand-point well and septic system. Natural gas to the house fuels the forced hot-air furnace and hot water heater. A central air conditioning system offers relief on hot summer days and nights, or when the pollen count is high.

Trees and wood lines shield the house from neighbors. This waterfront lot and house offers a lot of relative privacy for being located on such a popular and expensive chain of lakes. 1/2 acre with 158 feet of shore. The sheltered boat dockage in the channel provides all of the boatable lake access of a more expensive lake-view lot but without the much higher lakefront cost. The undeveloped island across the water is home to wildlife.

This is an opportunity to own on the desirable Townsend lake chain at an affordable price while getting into an easy to maintain year-round home instead of an old cottage or cabin. Come up and see for yourself.

The 2016 property taxes were $2120.55. The assessed value is $156,100; the estimated fair market value is 159,000.
