Sitting on 6.4 acres, Fort Eagle offers over 1200 feet of premium clear water sandy beach frontage on Big Sand Lake in Vilas County. Completed in 1927, the residence stands in sharp contrast to the traditional log buildings in the Northwoods. This very private setting offers a perfect combination of lawn, terraced flower gardens and majestic old pine and maple trees with winding drives throughout. There's also a guest house, 3 slip wet boathouse, lake side gazebo, sauna, garden shed, "Homer's" office, doll house and storage sheds. Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1998, this estate was the home and hideout of Homer "Homeless" Galpin, a Chicago politician with questionable relationships, including serving as Al Capone's attorney. An additional adjacent 137 acres with 4600 feet of frontage is also available for purchase (#09775471). Priced well below appraised value, this is an outstanding opportunity to acquire a historic second home or family compound.

*Private mortgage insurance is an insurance policy that a residential mortgage lender requires of the borrower if the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of the home is greater than 80%. Mortgage insurance protects the lender from the risk that the borrower may default on the loan. Federal law requires lenders to notify borrowers when the loan-to-value ratio drops below 80%. Mortgage insurance premiums vary, but generally range from $1,000 to $5,000 a year for an average priced home.
