Restored farmhouse with new additions marries the charm of the past with the functionality and comfort of the present. Situated on 177 contiguous wooded acres in Southwest Wisconsin at the end of a private road invites thoughts of country home retreat, hunting paradise, bed and breakfast potential, and future significant timber value. In 1992, 60 acres were planted into a hardwood tree plantation featuring oak and black walnut trees. Over the last 23 years this plantation has been well managed, groomed, and pruned with the goal of producing veneer type trees that will one day reap a bountiful harvest. The last few years the plantation has been managed by a private forester and the DNR. Originally built in 1906, the four-square farmhouse began the extensive restoration process in 1976. At that time new wiring, plumbing and drywall were added along with a wood burning fireplace in the living room. Since then in 2010, a new roof was installed and a well drilled. A new septic was added and in 2012, the house received 24 new windows. The main floor master bedroom with a private master bathroom and large walk-in closet was a new addition as was the four-season sun room with a vaulted ceiling and a wall of windows to the south. The master bathroom has a whirlpool tub and large handicap accessible shower. The kitchen comes with all the appliances, including a double oven, and has its own pantry. The living room and dining room have hardwood floors. The entire third floor is a 31x31 finished bonus room. This three bedroom home currently has five rooms set up as bedrooms but could also be used as offices. There are three full bathrooms. The mechanicals of the home feature a variety of heating and cooling options. The main heat source is a hot water radiant heating system providing clean radiant warmth to most of the home. There are three ductless central A/C heat pump units throughout the house that provide economical heating and cooling. There is a backup generator that can run the vitals of the house if there was ever a temporary power failure. The outbuildings consist of a 24x16 shop with an extra thick concrete floor, three-phase electrical, and an industrial evacuation fan. The metal mill and lathe are included in the sale. The 60x26 tobacco barn has tin siding and a tin room and is great for storing all the equipment you'll need to care for this property. In the backyard is a 75x30 dog kennel with two individual 12x6 kennels with concrete floors. The care of the tree plantation has not only resulted in wide trails planted in clover to access the various parts of the property, but it has created a haven for wildlife. Whether a new owner likes to observe nature or hunt, deer, large bucks, turkey and many other forms of wildlife are found here. Outdoor recreation such as hiking & cross country skiing are another advantage of this property. One hundred and sixty acres are in the closed managed forest land program providing low taxes, future income, and a healthy woods for a new owner. The 25-year program was entered into in January of 2014 so a buyout at this time would be minimal. The home and outbuildings are on the ridge, but the land extends into the valleys as well. Located a short distance from the Mississippi River expands the recreational opportunities including excellent fishing opportunities. The distance from larger cities - La Crosse 40 miles, Prairie Du Chien 30 miles, and Viroqua 18 miles, makes access to additional shopping and entertainment close at hand. 48102-11940
