Property Description

Sitting on 6.4 acres, Fort Eagle offers over 1200 feet of premium clear water sandy beach frontage on Big Sand Lake in Vilas County. Completed in 1927, the residence stands in sharp contrast to the traditional log buildings in the Northwoods. This very private setting offers a perfect combination of lawn, terraced flower gardens and majestic old pine and maple trees with winding drives throughout. There's also a guest house, 3 slip wet boathouse, lake side gazebo, sauna, garden shed, "Homer's" office, doll house and storage sheds. Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1998, this estate was the home and hideout of Homer "Homeless" Galpin, a Chicago politician with questionable relationships, including serving as Al Capone's
attorney. An additional adjacent 137 acres with 4600 feet of frontage is also available for purchase (#09775471). Priced well below appraised value, this is an outstanding opportunity to acquire a historic second home or family compound.
