Friday, 30 June 2006

More than 310 acres with 6,287+/- feet of shoreline on Lake Huron's North Channel will be sold at auction Saturday, July 22, with J.P. King Auction Company managing the sale. The land auction will include 12 waterfront home sites, ranging from 6.52+/- acres to 10.99+/- acres. Six of the sites will sell absolute, with no minimum bid or reserve.

"The North Channel is one of the world's best areas for boating and sailing, and every one of these home sites has excellent water frontage, ranging from 292.7+/- feet to more than 914 feet," said Craig King, president of J.P. King.

"These home sites are perfect for high-end homes and estates, with a remarkable degree of privacy," said King. "Because the area is bordered by the North Channel, government-protected land and 205 acres of woodland that the owners will own jointly, the fortunate individuals who build here won't have to worry about future development nearby," said King.

The property is located 46 miles from Sault Ste. Marie and is minutes from three major marinas. The auction will be held at 11 a.m. at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, Acme (Traverse City), Mich. Individuals will be required to present a cashier's check for $10,000 (USD) to register for the auction.

The North Shore is a popular destination for sailing enthusiasts, with the Manitoulin Islands, endless bays, points, islands and coves where yacht enthusiasts can drop anchor for the night.
