Our land was not advertised as view property by the realtor and that is not primarily what we were looking for. But we did see some ‘peek a boo’ views of the lake from a few spots, especially in the area that seemed most suitable for the house. After some careful shifting of the exact site and selective clearing of some unsightly ‘red cedars,’ we are very happy that there is indeed a modest view of the lake. It helped that the main floor is elevated because the basement couldn’t be dug very deep with bedrock being so close to the surface. It helps even more that the second floor is that much higher than the main floor.
