Later this afternoon a property at Eagle Lake will be added to Alexandria’s MLS but you are getting an early look. First off, if you aren’t familiar with 907 acre Eagle Lake you will think what I am going to pass on is a typo. It’s water clarity is 25 feet. Actually, 25.2 feet. Apparently it is very popular with scuba divers not only because of the amazing clarity but because it is also has freshwater coral. I still remember the first time I saw Eagle Lake. It was a fall afternoon 5-6 years ago and I was driving north on CR 78 to Battle Lake. In the last two decades I rarely took this route and if I did, I just didn’t turn my vision to the east. On that sunny afternoon my head did turn to the east and I noticed a lake shimmering through trees in a color of blue that was unreal. So unreal, I did a u-turn a 1/2 mile later to go and check it out.
So when I received an email about marketing an Eagle Lake property I was thrilled. This property has 100 feet of shoreline and a year round A-frame that was built in 1990. It has 2 bedrooms, a loft, 1 bathroom and a large stone wood burning fireplace. Walking to the lake shoreline requires no steps if you use the right side of the property. There is mild elevation on the left side and as you will see in one of the photos in the collage below, the owner added steps leading from the large deck. All personal property (dock, small lift, fishing boat, 3 canoes, furnishings, etc.) are being included in the $284,999 list price.
