Birder’s paradise!

Are YOU a conservation-minded buyer looking for real estate with high ecological value?


UPLC is selling a 4.27-acre parcel in Grand Marais, Michigan which we also hold a Conservation Easement over*. That means that the 175 feet of Lake Superior waterfront and 350 feet of the Sucker River will be protected forever from degradation!  This property contains a fragile and rare Great Lakes Wooded Dune-and-Swale ecosystem that is rapidly disappearing nationally due to over-development and irresponsible use. The gravel beach also hosts endangered Piping Plovers who are known to nest on the property, among hundreds of other shorebirds. This property does not currently have a building on it, but the easement allows for the development of a camp area for living or enjoying as a vacation getaway.

Build your dream home on the shore

There are currently no buildings on the property but there is a great site ready for you to build your dream home, or cluster of buildings for when the whole family comes to visit. Just miles out of Grand Marais and an easy drive to either Marquette or the Mackinac Bridge, it’s hard to beat this idyllic site for recreation, family life, retirement, or vacation–especially since you’ll have the knowledge that you’re protecting land today for life tomorrow simply by enjoying your property.

If you are interested in visiting the property, UPLC will coordinate viewings as needed.

Asking price: $155,000.00; the low cost is due to the easement’s restrictions, which restrict development on certain parts of the property while still maintaining a large building envelope. Please contact us for details about the property and conservation easement.

* The Conservation Easement is currently, temporarily held by The Nature Conservancy until the time of sale, at which point the CE will transfer and be held by UPLC.
