Dream Big! What is your dream - a private safe haven, a homestead, a hobby farm, a secluded hunting camp, or a wooded retreat? 436.34 contiguous acres can be just about whatever you envision! Nestled in the heart of the Driftless Region, and made up of some of the area's finest geographical features. This property offers ridge top vistas, valley seclusion and two spring-fed streams. The streams are dependent on the water table, but one of them has run consistently for the last 15 years. Mostly wooded and pastured, there are also 62.45 acres of tillable land, according to the Crawford County USDA map. 4.7 acres of fields are in the CRP program and are planted in prairie flowers, grasses, hazelnuts, and an assortment of trees including dogwoods, oak, sugar maple, black walnut, and pines (all planted in 2007). All of this agricultural land keeps taxes low. The taxes for 2014 were only $3,354. Oh, and for bragging rights, a field that is currently being left fallow, was the site chosen by Walt Disney Productions for a scene in the filming of the movie "The Straight Story". This field grows a lot of native prairie plants. A list of plant species from a Mississippi Valley Conservancy study is available upon request. Enjoy a piece of the past with the convenience of present in this 100 plus-year-old four-bedroom farmhouse with approximately 1800 sq. ft. of living space. The entire house was gutted down to the studs and completely renovated in 2014. Some of the updates include the: windows, plumbing, roof, wiring, sheet rock and flooring. The original staircase and two stain glass windows remain. Each floor has a full bathroom and laundry is on the main level. The older barn, granary, corn crib and milk house provide storage for equipment or shelter for animals. The partial remains of the original settlers' log cabin have been studied and date back to the 1830's. The property has been in the sellers family for over 50 years. This wealth of privacy and abundance of land is only eight miles away from Wisconsin's second oldest city, Prairie du Chien, and the beauty and recreational opportunities of the mighty Mississippi River. A recent National Geographic study reports that being in nature calms the mind and extends life expectancy. What are you waiting for? What is your dream? Dream big! 48102-11990
