Imagine pulling into your own private valley in the Driftless Area. The stress drifts away as you wind up the driveway, past evergreens, near a pond and up to your log style home. You look in every direction, knowing that you own all that meets your eye. No, this isn't a dream, but a reality for this property midway between Viroqua and Richland Center.
The parcel terrain spreading across 2 ridges and a valley make it seem much larger than the 60+/- acres that make up the estate. Exploring the property by Utv, horses, snowshoes or hiking boots is convenient using the 2+ miles of established trails. 46+/- acres of wooded land, with some mature timber, flow over the hillsides and ridges. In one corner of the property, a 7 +/- acre historical field is now in high grass providing opportunity for hunting or wildlife watching. In the valley an additional 3+/- acres of level open ground would be ideal for wildlife food plots or seeding into natural prairie. Near the home a 1+/- acres fenced pasture with smooth wire fencing would be great for horses or hobby farm livestock. A stream flowing down the valley and a pond near the home are both wildlife magnets. An overgrown apple orchard on the east ridge also provides seasonal whitetail food.
The log style (frame construction with log siding interior and exterior) home is so well suited to the location, it seems like it grew there. While the view from the wrap around deck is amazing to absorb, eventually, you've need to head inside. Fortunately, the view up the valley from the floor to ceiling windows is equally nice. The cathedral ceiling in the dining area, living room and second floor provide an airy, open atmosphere. At one end of the living room, a wood burning insert fireplace provides a cozy secondary focal point when the sun goes down on a chilly day.
The generous kitchen with oak cabinets is large enough to accommodate multiple cooks and a sit up bar is perfect for having a chat over coffee. Two bedrooms on the main floor add to the convenience. A lovely bath completes the main floor and features a jetted tub, separate shower and double sinks. Up the open staircase, a large open area is a perfect flex area. Currently, it is used as a bedroom and craft area but it could also be a family room. Off this area is a convenient ½ bath.
The basement with walkout to the yard is partially finished, and there you will find another flex room. It is currently being used for a laundry room and storage, but with minor adjustment, it could be another bedroom. A tuck under 2 car garage and the utilities room (with storage area) complete the lower floor.
Set back from the home, a 28' x 40' metal shed is perfect for storage or hobbies. The 2 overhead doors with openers, provide great access. A 3 sided firewood shed and garden shed complete the package. Properties with these amenities don't come along often, so don't miss out. Set up your showing today.
