2280 Maple Drive Sister Bay WI 54234 for sale

Front View 2280 Maple for Sale

Semi-precious gem in the middle of paradise.  This two bedroom plus bonus room (used as bedroom) all-season home for sale in Sister Bay, Wisconsin is perched on a gentle slope. The eastern lot boundary allows for a driveway that leads down to the semi-wooded back yard and then more forest that extends to the northern property line.  Behold the mature pine, maple, and birch trees in the forest---you will LOVE your back yard!  For decades, the natural beauty here has been untouched aside from the native fauna - in the winter months, their paths and tracks through the snow are clearly evident.  Lily of the Valley abound along with a native raspberry patch and perennials by the house.

On the west side of the house, you have an eat-in kitchen on the interior, which allows easy access to a flagstone patio that overlooks the lower level where there is a fire pit and ample space for backyard fun.

Door County Homes for Sale with Fire Pits

The house features hardwood floors throughout the main level and a second floor which is being used as a bedroom bedroom or which can be bonus living space with windows facing east and west.  The basement is a convenient walk-out style, down the stairs from the upper first floor level.  A driveway once wrapped around the house in a circular fashion - the patio took its place in the 1980s.  However, the eastern lot boundary still allows for a driveway that leads down to the semi-wooded back yard.

With its surrounding curbside charm inside and out it feels tucked away from town yet it is just a few blocks away from downtown Sister Bay!  After a short stroll down to town via Maple Drive out front or through the forest to Mill Road, you will be footsteps from the Waterfront Park with music pavilion, the restored and enlarged Sister Bay Beach, kayak launching area and the beautiful Sister Bay marina---bring a bottle of wine and go watch a classic Door County sunset. 

Village of Sister Bay Homes for Sale

The library, post office and shops galore are not hard to find either.  The superb restaurants you encounter are a mix from an older traditional menu era of Door County (including the classic Wisconsin Supper Club) along with new culinary eateries that will delight both traditionalists and foodies.  If you head east from the house on foot, you will soon find the year-round Sister Bay Sports Complex. This has a sledding hill, two ice rinks (hockey on one), basketball courts, baseball field and across the road there is a large enclosed dog park.

With this centralized Sister Bay location you are just minutes away from many Door County villages, sites and festivals.  To finish the day there are spectacular sunset views from the park/beach, or marina.  Then you are just a short walk back up to Maple Drive!  Find more details here about our listing at 2280 Maple Drive, Sister Bay, WI 54234.

As always, you can search the ENTIRE Door County MLS to see Door County homes for sale at moredoorcounty.com today.
