United Country Real Estate has experts from coast-to-coast specializing in recreational real estate. Our agents, brokers and auctioneers showcase listings that involve a variety of recreational activities like hunting, kayaking, skiing, camping and more. Each property offers a uniqueness that many others don’t have.
One example of a unique recreational property is the private island for sale in Michigan listed by Matt Farkas of United Country Real Estate | Great Lakes Realty & Auction. Standerson Island is located in Drummond, Mich., and is near the famous North Channel in Lake Huron. The 20-acre island provides many opportunities for water sports during the warmer months and spectacular fishing all-year round.
“This is an opportunity to own an exclusive private island and that’s not something you see very often,” said Farkas. “I’ve spent time on it. It’s quiet, secluded and peaceful. It would be perfect for a lake cruiser or someone who just wants their own summer retreat. There is opportunity to build a small home or cabin on it and run electricity. It’s also secluded away from any big wind or waves so it’s great for kayaking.”
The Las Animas Ranch located in Trinidad, Colo. Listed by Gary Hubbell of United Country Real Estate | Colorado Brokers, is another example of the unique properties United Country affiliates sell. The 3,100-acre property offers excellent hunting opportunities, a luxury ranch home, guest house and horse improvements. What is special about this property is the history that lies on it. There are remnants of an old prisoner-of-war camp that housed German prisoners during World War II on the property. The street of the camp is still laid out some pieces of the buildings are still there.
“The internment camp on the ranch is a relic from a very unusual time in our nation’s history. It’s when people of Japanese descent were rounded up and imprisoned for the simple fact of their heritage,” said Hubbell. “Most of the buildings have been removed, but the manager’s home still stands, as well as the concrete jails, complete with bars and heavy iron doors. It was a major settlement in its day with more than 4,000 people living there. All of the complex history on this property make it truly unique and interesting.”
