Property Description

Spectacular view of Mineola Bay on the Chain O' Lakes with over 1/4 acre lot and your boat dock right off your huge lakefront deck. This property can be used as a single family home with a guesthouse or rental or as 3 separate rental units (approved by Fox Lake). The lakefront home consists of 1 bdrm on the main floor and French doors opening from the Living Room to the Family Room and great lake view. Kitchen, full bath & laundry on this level. Inside stairway leads to the 2nd floor (currently a separate unit, separate HVAC, used by the owner but can be used as single family home) with a second kitchen, full bath, vaulted Bonus Room (w/ wet bar & beamed ceiling) overlooking the lake, 2 bedrooms and a loft for extra sleeping space. 1,700 sq. ft. of multi-level deck wrap around the main house with stairs leading down to the dock (pier included). Thermopane replacement windows have been installed. Also included is half of a duplex at the road with a newer roof and an over-sized (714 sq. ft.) 2.5 car heated garage. Previously used as a rental with 1 bedroom, full kitchen and bath, this could provide extra income or a great space for guests (no A/C). Recently freshened up with new paint and flooring it also has washer & dryer in the garage. Plenty of concrete guest parking and a shed complete the picture. Room sizes are for main house.
