Property 9 is located just 15 minutes southeast of Marquette, the largest city in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The property entrance is off of State Hwy. M94 and across the street from Red Fox Run 18 hole golf course. This inverted “L” shaped property has 100s of feet of highway frontage, with the southern most tip adjoining Property 14 and its 6.38± acres. Property 14 is available separately from Property 9.
The heavily wooded recreation or potential development land is in the southwest corner of West Branch Township in Marquette County. Silver Lead Creek flows through the valley of its rolling hills and is fed by Little Trout Lake to the West.
You could not ask for a more beautiful property in the heart of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to call home. Walk out your back door to cross country ski, hike, mountain bike, hunt, fish or just relax in your own wooded getaway. Wildlife is abundant, the Upper Peninsula is home to moose, cougar, wolf, deer, bear, rabbits, squirrels, fox and various species of birds.
This 73.72± acre wooded land parcel has lots of potential. Current zoning is listed as Public Land, but the county is aware of the auction and is willing to work with a new owner if a zoning change is needed for a future use.
The land was once part of the K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base which shut down in 1995. Today, K. I. Sawyer is a thriving industrial park/airport with many major companies and families calling it home.
Additional information is available with the return of this completed release.
