Tucked away in the Driftless Area of Southwest Wisconsin, you'll find this beautiful farmstead hideaway only 75 minutes from Madison. With 160 acres of stately ridges and hidden valleys, you'll have plenty of room to roam.
Approximately 130 acres of the property is wooded in a mixture of SW Wisconsin Hardwoods. Past management of this wooded land has resulted in notable timber value. Approximately 12 valley acres near the buildings are currently tilled by a local farmer and an additional 8+/- acres are in high grass but could be cultivated. Horse and ATV trails wind throughout the property for easy access to rock outcroppings and beautiful views. A spring feeds a small pond near the home.
The main residence is a classic farmhouse that has been expanded, upgraded and currently is in “move in” condition. The large eat in kitchen features custom hickory cabinets and a walk in pantry. A storage room off of the kitchen would be perfect for second fridge and canned goods storage. A living room, spacious family room, large laundry, full bath and two bedrooms complete the first floor. Upstairs, you'll find two more bedrooms, a full bath and a master suite including dual closets and a third bath. Your choice of multiple heating sources including LP forced air, electric baseboard and a soapstone wood stove offer your choice for economical heating.
A two bedroom, 1 bath ranch style second home would be perfect for a guest home, B&B or an art studio. Several outbuildings including a barn, Quonset shed and pole building offer plenty of storage or the perfect spot for a few cattle or horses.
Note: 120 acres of the property are within the Knapp Creek Wildlife Area which comprises over 2000 acres. Responsible public access (by foot only) is allowed in this area for hunting purposes. As per the Wildlife Area website, public access is NOT Allowed for birding, hiking, cross country skiing, or gathering wild edibles (including morels). The price adjustment because of this access allows you to purchase a much larger property for the same money as one that is not within the Wildlife Area. Don't miss out, set up your showing today.
