Michael A. Fine, principal of Fine and Company, said: “The successful bidder can become the owner of an increasingly vanishing example of Northern Midwest Splendor. Turning off the road and a tree-lined ¾ mile drive towards this character-laden estate serves as a gateway to a gracious way of life transporting visitors back in time. It doesn’t get any better than this.”
This auction will take place just two weeks following the auction of an 18,000 sq. ft. country estate in Darien, Wisconsin, by Fine & Company WI, LLC. Mr. Fine also noted that “the auction focuses attention on the property and establishes a relative time-certain date of sale, which is especially appealing to sellers of means who are intent on moving on to the next phase of their highly productive lives.”

Situated on twenty acres and located at the tip of Door County, Wisconsin. This unique hand-crafted European style log lodge frames panoramic views of Green Bay affording the utmost in privacy and solitude, this property is absolutely mesmerizing but the story behind the home is even more captivating.
Current homeowners Katie and Charlie Brumder state, “We disassembled logs from seven or eight old log homes brought them here and reconstructed them.” They both worked to design the expansion/remodeling project.

This fantastic estate is located at the Northern tip of the Door County peninsula.
One wing of the home features a spacious well-equipped gourmet kitchen with a family room and eating area that overlooks the property’s expansive 750 feet of water frontage. The dining room occupies a portion of the original log structure.

About Gills Rock, (Door County, WI):
Door County has a well deserved reputation as a summer destination to many of those who can enjoy more than one home in their lives. Homes tend to get passed down from one generation to the next and it seems that no matter where someone moves in the country, if they have spent summers here they are lured back time and time again.
Lands End is perfectly situated at the tip of Door County with views of Washington Island and away from what has become more densely populated areas of the peninsula in the Fish Creek to Sister Bay areas. The Lands End owner can enjoy all of the serenity of what Door County was in the past without neighbors and total privacy while at the same time be only a short drive to all of the amenities consisting of theater, art, outdoor activities and comforts that have evolved in the nearby towns.
Fine adds “Owning a home should not have the effect of a ball and chain around your leg tying you down to a location that no longer fits your lifestyle or needs. Though a difficult market to predict, buyers exist in today’s real estate climate, but need to be reached by casting a wider net and having a chance to get a fair deal. The auction is a systematic and sophisticated marketing approach to the sale of real estate not found in conventional brokerage.”
