This beautiful 4 bed, 3 bath, ranch style, executive home was built in 2007 and is waiting for one very fortunate new owner, sitting high atop Shiras Hills looking out over Lake Superior on just under an acre and a half. It has amazing presence from the road with it's convenient pull through driveway, brick exterior, arched column porch, ornate windows, and window boxes... so much curb appeal! Once inside you'll be greeted by an amazing great room with soaring vaulted ceilings, a floor to ceiling custom brick fireplace, amazing views of the lake, and the custom gourmet kitchen. This kitchen will please even the most choosy of chefs with its plentiful cabinet and counter space, granite counter tops, custom cherry cabinetry with soft close feature, large breakfast bar for buffet style meals, pantry, and stainless steal appliances. There is also a door to the large back deck right off the kitchen, making grilling out a cinch. The floors throughout the great room are genuine hardwood floors or ceramic, travertine and marble. Great attention to detail was taken in the finishes of this home. Should you like to use the second bedroom as an office/library, you will have your own, private master wing. The master suite boasts beautiful views of back yard/lake, large walk-in closet with built-in storage, and master bath that is to die for, with dual vanity, jetted tub, and separate low threshold shower. The main floor could easily be used for one floor living as one ages. The two car attached garage provides easy access to the kitchen for convenient grocery unloading. You'll notice that the lower level feels like an extension of the home rather than a "basement" with its 10 foot ceilings, arched doorways, brick columns, and walk out sliding glass door to the second lower deck. The family/rec room is plenty large enough for big screen television, bar, pool table, what ever you like! The third and fourth bedrooms are true conforming bedrooms with closets and egress windows allowing for plenty of natural light. The third bathroom, laundry room, and large sauna are also on this level. There is also a spacious storage room and a separate utility room with high efficiency furnace, water heater, and 200 amp service panel. This home is an estate sale and is listed under the state equalized value of 408k. Luxury awaits you! Welcome home!

Shiras Hills is predominantly single family primary homes, ranging from cottages, bungalows, ranch style houses and luxury custom homes. Residences are on mostly large and heavily wooded lots with winding tree-lined streets and cul-de-sacs. Shiras Children's Park and Basketball Court are at the end of Nicolet and there are Shiras Trail Heads that connect to the Marquette's South trails and the Noquemanon trail network. The neighborhood of Shiras Hills is located near the southeastern corner of Marquette close to the Marquette Mountain Ski Hill, Marquette's South Beach, and Mount Marquette scenic outlook. Shiras Hills takes its name from George Shiras III, recognized today as the father of wildlife photography. A former resident of Marquette, Shiras was a major contributor to the park and recreation development in the city.
