Perched on a ridge on a 42-acre wooded lot in SW Wisconsins rolling Driftless Area sits this upscale 3600 square foot log home together with a 60 x 40 barn/outbuilding, which is a gem in its own right.

Everywhere you look, this home is an invitation to relax.
The vaulted ceiling skylights create a sense of grandness and allow for plenty of natural light. The gas stoves on each level provide a warm coziness in the winter months. There are plenty of places to relax with a good book and a cup of coffee or a glass of wine the sunroom or the lower level den, or, in warmer seasons, the screened-in gazebo, the lofts balcony, or anywhere on the 1,000 plus square foot deck: the open deck, the covered deck, or the lower deck, with its wood-burning fire pit.
