Property Description

Exquisite 3800 sq ft custom-built log home and separate guest house on 6 acres with Yellow Creek frontage! This beautiful custom designed and built log home has all the aesthetics of a rural setting with the conveniences and security of the city. This property ALSO features a separate 1100 sq ft 2 story log guest house with living room, kitchen, large master bedroom and recently updated full bath with jacuzzi tub. Washer, dryer and kitchen appliances stay with this home. This additional home has its own lovely patio and perennial garden as well. What an exceptional opportunity for a rental, an office, or an in-law arrangement. Upon entering the main log home from the comfortably large front porch, you will be greeted with an expansive formal living room with a massive stone hearth and fireplace with a wood burning stove insert through which you find a lovely formal dining and sitting room with another stone fireplace, a soaring ceiling, and the most exquisite stain glass chandelier. Adjacent to the dining room is a beautifully appointed kitchen with stainless appliances, breakfast bar and limestone counters. On the main level, there is also laundry room and lovely half bath with custom built vanity. One can access the lovely covered multi-level deck from this level. There you will also find a gazebo and above ground pool. As you ascend the massive log staircase to the second level, you will find a loft sitting area with its own deck and 3 bedrooms. There is a full bath complete with jacuzzi tub and shower, a small beverage refrigerator and TV. The large master bedroom with abundant storage has its own master bath with a custom-built vanity, tub, and shower. The lower level provides a full walk-out with another large rec room, wet bar, wood burning stove and an additional bedroom. The two-car garage can be entered at this level. Also situated on the property is a 46x30 outbuilding with electric and wood stove. If you are looking for the serenity of rural life but the convenience of living in the city, look no further! Easy access to U.S. Route 20 and all major roadways. 40 minutes to Galena! HSA home warranty policy included. All appliances in both homes stay.
