Properties such as S590 Hirst Road come along only once or twice in a lifetime. People that own these high-end properties just don’t sell them. This custom-built home has lots of little extras that would be too expensive or almost impossible to get today in order to build in such a spectacular location. There are 3 spring heads on the property that keep water flowing through it year around. The driveway is paved from Hirst Road all the way to the house. An extra-large culvert was installed to handle increased flow from the springs. There are two creeks that join before flowing off the property, the WDNR has said that trout are present in one of the creeks. Bald eagles are seen often during winter months. Because the home is tucked in a valley man-made sound is only an occasional thing. But you’re not far from the fun in Wisconsin Dells or from necessities in Reedsburg. This gorgeous house is only 15 minutes from the interstate. You have the seclusion of a Rocky Mountain get-away with the convenience of mid-western living.
The house’s heating system is zoned. In the winter months, the passive solar heat gain from the windows and the in-floor radiant heat couple to make the house cozy and easy to heat on even the coldest of Wisconsin’s winter days. The house was carefully located on the land so as to take advantage of the sun’s movement across the winter sky. There is a fireplace on the main floor and a free-standing wood stove in the family room to add ambiance when the snow is falling and the wind is howling. An outside wood boiler could be easily integrated with the existing radiant heat system because it designed to accommodate one. This would even further reduce heating costs.
The hickory cabinets, flooring, doors and casing all add a touch of elegance and strength to the home. The doors are solid hickory, hand crafted by the areas Amish population. When you swing one of these doors closed, you know you’re not swinging a door from a big-box store.
There is a spectacular view from just about any room in the house. Whether it’s hills, valleys, blue sky or the moon at night, the views from this rare, easy-to-love home is unrivaled.
There have been hundreds of trees planted over the years; from pine to apple, to pear. The stalks on the asparagus in the garden are a big as a child’s wrist. Wild mushrooms are plentiful on the land, too.
If horses are your pleasure, there is plenty of open ground for paddocks and alfalfa is already being grown on the land. But if wild animals are your pleasure there are plenty of opportunities to see and harvest them as well. A well-maintained trail system awaits you for either pursuit. Turkeys overtake the yard around the house in spring. It is not uncommon to find yourself staring down a deer from the wet bar in the basement.
There is a great bonus room above the garage for hunting buddies to use during the season. Access to the basement is possible from the garage. There’s a root cellar in the basement along with space in the large mechanical room for a workshop.
The list goes on and on. Bring your proof-of-funds or pre-qualification letter and prepare to be wowed.
