A spectacular estate home and ranch in the exact center of Northern Michigan is being promoted as “800 acres of Paradise” by WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Town & Country, exclusive representatives of the property which bears the official name of Panorama Ranch.
According to the agency’s Sales Manager Dean Boivin, the “very private” property is set amid the beauty of the Pigeon River State Forest, “where abundant wildlife is an understatement,” and is rimmed on the eastern side by the Pigeon River. Priced at $1,800,000, the Panorama Ranch address is 4533 Whitehouse Trail, just minutes from the Tree Top Resort and downtown Gaylord in Otsego County.
Originally built in the late '50s as a hunting lodge for a Detroit factory owner, the property has been used as a single family estate for over 40 years. The private compound is a mile from the road, in the heart of Elk country. It is also near state and federal land.
The sprawling ranch house has three bedrooms, each with its own bath. The field stone fireplace is the centerpiece for the large open living area. The master bedroom features an updated master bath and a private deck. The walkout basement boasts a three piece bath and a large family room that can serve multiple uses. Multiple barns, fencing and livestock equipment provide a variety of livestock uses. Currently used as a beef cattle farm, the potential is endless. There is even a 1,300 square foot, 3-bedroom, 1-bath guest house.
Noteworthy, Boivin points out, is the fact that mineral rights that are available will be transferred, allowing gas and oil royalty income to the new owner, and an additional 90 acres hunting camp, complete with a log cabin is available adjacent to the property.
