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 over which we also hold a Conservation Easement.* This means that the 175 feet of Lake Superior waterfront and 350 feet of the Sucker River will be protected forever!  This property contains a fragile and rare Great Lakes Wooded Dune-and-Swale ecosystem, which is rapidly disappearing nationally due to over-development and irresponsible use. The cobbled beach also hosts endangered Piping Plovers , which have been known to nest on the property, and every year hundreds of other shorebirds visit during their migration or settle in every summer. This property does not currently have a building on it; however, 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 a few miles east of the charming shoreline village 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 (i.e. temporarily) held by The Nature Conservancy until the time of sale, at which point the CE will transfer to and be held by UPLC.
