Minnesota Nice Homes: Renowned builder is selling his North Shore dream house

Just down the road from the Canadian border, this estate is on the market for $1.45M.
Publish date:

Clarence Kemp is a well-known name along the North Shore for the countless houses he's built in Minnesota's northeastern edge – now he's selling the one he built for him.

A renowned builder of premiere, Lake Superior homes, the now-retired Clarence and his wife Nancy are planning to downsize.

As a result, they've placed the stunning house he built for them prior to retirement on the market for $1.45 million.

Set on dramatic bluffs overlooking Lake Superior in Hovland, Minnesota, the estate comes with 479 feet of shoreline and 3 acres of woodland.

The 2004-built main home meanwhile comprises three bedrooms set across 4,877 square feet of space.

Kemp's custom-built home is all about the lakeside view, with expansive windows dominating its "great room," making the most of the natural light that hits the cedar-sided home every morning.

Eyes are also drawn to the room's soapstone fireplace, as well as the doors that open out onto a capacious, 80-foot long deck.

And while it appears isolated, amenities aren't too far away. It's an 18-mile drive into Grand Marais, four miles to Devil's Kettle Falls, 15 to the Isle Royale Ferry and just 22 miles to the Canadian border.
