Everything about this property is BIG, BEST QUALITY, and IMPRESSIVE!
One-of-a-kind property for the region, this huge executive home is sturdy custom log construction from Stevens Point Custom Log Manufacturing. This home is specifically engineered for comfort and entertaining, or living the country life in best fashion.
The massive, double-hung Walnut front doors (hand-fashioned from on-property Walnut) welcome you to a delightfully open and bright double foyer. Each of the four major quadrants of the home serve you with one unexpected nicety after the next. Ceramic tile ushers into the Master Bedroom Suite, accompanying bedrooms, the kitchen-dining-great room area, and the uniquely outfitted “Tiki Bar Room.” Hardwood, logs, and high-quality finishes speak volumes about the care and planning in the construction and care of this home.
Accented by the finest contemporary design touches, including upgrades such as multiple walk-in closets, devoted lady’s wardrobe room, master suite with fireplace and circular stairway to work-out area and private office, master suite hot bath with commanding view of ponds, and wholly unique “Tiki Bar Room” with full bar, you simply could not imagine a better place to call home. Great appliances in the custom kitchen and another adjacent wet bar make meals and catering a snap. If you love to cook and spend time among family or friends, there is no better place than this massive kitchen-dining-great room area. From highest quality granite countertops to ample counter space and bar stool service areas next to matching log design dining table, this is the place to enjoy life. Stainless steel appliances spark and accent the areas while designed-to-fit lighting illuminates the entire area with perfect highlights.
Regardless of the weather, an expansive pavilion allows living spaces to flow from the home to a hand-laid stone surrounded Dal-Farno wood-fired pizza oven, gray granite counter tops surrounding stainless steel sinks, and seating for over 100 guests. Adjacent in-ground pool, sweeping deck spaces, and balconies assure great views of this secluded treasure from every vantage point of the living areas.
The active family or outdoorsman may also enjoy the lower level garage, suitable for up to seven vehicles and outfitted for a woodworking shop. Larger equipment or outdoor gear is ideally housed in two modern Wick sheds, each with room enough for heavy equipment, boats, RV’s, and every sort of ATV imaginable. Should you find the occasion to provide additional space for entertaining, the substantial sheet metal sheds offer portable bars and stools sufficient to serve hundreds of guests.
Equally as big, best quality, and impressive is the heavily timbered woodlands of this property. Nearly 90 acres of mature hardwoods, fruit trees, food plots, and groomed trails promise a new adventure in the outdoors every day. Trails are suitable for ATV’s with multiple loops, hills, and open areas. Trails also offer highly desirable funnel areas for wildlife and facilitate the active management of each hunting area. Long-term food plots draw and keep wildlife on the property. It is impossible to walk the property without seeing deer, turkey, waterfowl, pheasant, rabbits, squirrel and a wide variety of other game. Multiple edges and mixed environments contribute to the attraction and retention of wildlife. This property has a proven history of great turkey hunting and smashingly good whitetail trophy deer hunting. Recent bucks have exceeded 180 points! Hunting pressure is low in the area and the property is a natural refuge for wildlife, assuring you will have ample hunting even when others may not. This property is suited for ongoing, active management of wildlife habitat and the type of property youth may learn essential lessons about nature or the type of property affording constant interaction with the best wildlife Illinois has to offer.
Approaching this property from a long, private drive, you know something great is waiting to be seen. Cresting the hill, everything about the view of this property exceeds expectations. Groomed and irrigated lawns, multiple waterfowl ponds, a fishing pond, and towering timber speak volumes about the potential to make this a “forever home” for the those that appreciate quality, size, and comfort.
