Shell Lake Homes for Sale

Although Shell Lake is also a small Western Wisconsin town, the actual Shell Lake is a large 2,513 acre lake that lies near the southwest corner of Washburn County. Much of Shell Lake’s western shoreline rests right up against Highway 63, which not only acts as the primary thoroughfare of the Shell Lake community but is also lined with a few small shops, cafes, service businesses, and the town’s beautiful Memorial Park. Unlike some of the more rural lakes you’ll find in the Western Wisconsin region, where homes and real estate opportunities can be limited, Shell Lake is packed cottages, cabins, and other single-family dwellings of all shapes and sizes. And as one of the larger lakes in the immediate area, it’s also perfect for home buyers who love spending time fishing, swimming, water-skiing, wake boarding, or participating in any other lake-related activity you can think of. Look for home prices on Shell Lake to vary thanks to the wide variety of housing styles, but interested buyers can reasonably expect most listings to be somewhere between $250,000 and $400,000.

Shell Lake's Location

Given Washburn County is one of the more rural parts of Western Wisconsin, there isn’t a whole lot outside of the town limits, aside from lots of open space and farmland of course. Nearby communities include Beaver Brook, Chicago Junction, Spooner, and Sarona, but when it comes to community amenities and things to do, most people from those small towns travel over to Shell Lake rather than the other way around. Highway 53 isn’t far from the Shell Lake community, which also gives residents a quick, easy, and direct route to Eau Claire, which is about an hour and twenty minutes away.

Shell Lake Real Estate

With the beautiful 2,580 acre lake sitting adjacent to downtown Shell Lake, homes, cottages, and cabins along the waterfront are easily among the most highly sought after properties on the Shell Lake real estate market. Believe it or not, it’s also not that uncommon to find a few newly developed cabins with between three and five bedrooms and roughly 4,000 to 5,000 square feet of living space on the market for close to $800,000, which some home buyers may not expect from such a small community. For buyers much more of a budget, however, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a variety of desirable options in the $200,000 to $300,000 price range, while plenty of starter homes for sale in Shell Lake also start well under $100,000.
