Additional Property Details

You’ll catch your breath when you see this idyllic homestead but will soon let it out as you relax to the sounds of nature. The property has been used as a full time residence but the location, just over an hour from Madison, would make a perfect second home as well.

The 78.59 acre parcel is a fantastic mix of tillable ground, pasture with water and wooded land. The scenic Blue River twists through the property creating over ¾ mile of fishable frontage. Several natural ponds in the pasture attract waterfowl. A 5 acre tillable field and the 30+/- acres of pasture have been farmed to organic standards for several years. Across the river, 35+/- acres of woods and high grass hold wildlife including deer, turkeys and small game. The hobby farmer, nature lover or hunter would find this estate equally appealing.

The 4 bedroom 2 bath home was updated in the mid 1990’s by a doctor with a ‘spare no expense’ approach. Updates were completed while keeping the classic charm and appeal. Antique doors, hardwood flooring and large hardwood trim are simple but beautiful. The large country kitchen features a pantry, solid surface countertops, a chimney for a rustic cook stove, and a breakfast area with plenty of windows. A formal dining room is nearby should you choose to entertain guests. A spacious living room offers plenty of room for a couple sitting areas, a grand piano and a gathering area around the wood burning fireplace. Off of the living room, a south facing screened porch provides a fine spot for enjoying the outdoors much of the year. Completing the main floor is a foyer, library/ hobby room, laundry room, ¾ bath and a main floor bedroom/ office. On the second floor you will find 3 bedrooms and a second bath with a claw foot tub and classic fixtures.

Homesteaders will appreciate the large garden area with raised beds, multiple fruit trees and perennial beds. A few elm trees at the edge of the yard have been producing several meals of morel mushrooms each year. Outbuildings include a 2 car garage with storage, a garden shed/greenhouse, and a well maintained two story barn. A wedding was recently held in the upper level of the barn which to some, may suggest a potential business opportunity.

If you’re looking for a farmette close to nature, you won’t want to miss out on this property.
