Let me welcome you to a wonderous Amish crafted estate in the hills of Southwest Wisconsin. You’re looking at 75.59-acres of true countryside pride outside of Gays Mills, Wisconsin. This forested wonderland is home to an expansive hobby farm enterprise that features a large pole building, expansive garage and agrarian home. There’s even a pastoral cabin in the woods that was just built. Whether you’re looking for a permanent residence, secondary home or vacation rental opportunity, this whimsical backcountry gem is guaranteed to captivate the heart and soul of those searching for an estate like no other.
The estate is located between the rural communities of Gays Mills and Boscobel – just 5-miles from the Wisconsin River. Enter the estate from Hurlbut Road, which brings you to a scenic ridgetop setting. Here, you’ll find a brand new 1,930sq ft home built no more than a year ago. This 4-bedroom, half-bath home features a new 6” drilled well powered by air generation. A new conventional septic system was just installed and is gravity fed. And heated by an outdoor wood burning stove. As you’re likely learning, there’s no electric in place. However, electric can be easily attained by pulling it from a nearby junction box across the driveway for a very cost-friendly hook-up. If you are looking to update the house to a contemporary manner, you’ll easily be able to run any electric or plumbing needs for a full-scale bathroom from the lower level’s open ceiling.
On the northside of the home, you’ll find a 24x28ft Cleary Building perfect fit vehicles or machinery. A red steel outbuilding that footprints at 20x36ft with 10×20 lean-to currently serves as a horse barn. There’s a couple additional outbuildings and storage sheds on the estate for wood storage and garden supplies. As I stated before, 99.9% of all the buildings, excavation work and hardware are virtually brand new!
Take a gravel road past the homestead and venture into a wooded paradise along the ridge spine. This road leads to an awe-inspiring 24x32ft cabin that was intended to serve as a vacation rental. The cabin exterior is virtually finished; however, the inside remains open in the case that you desire to wire electric or put in plumbing options. The setting is truly magical and makes for a prominent hunting camp retreat. As you stray away from the cabin and enter the woods, you’ll notice a diverse mix of hardwoods, pine and walnut trees towering the canopy. There are multiple areas to plant food plots for whitetail and unlimited treestand options. The land encompasses an entire main ridge that extends nearly 1-mile in length. The land itself is truly a spectacle.
It’s simply a matter of timing for the current residence. The family is on the move to Ohio and looking to sell this prideful estate to someone that appreciates Mother Nature’s bounty. The current owners would be open and willing to rent back the home for a small timeframe as they secure an estate out East. Otherwise, it’s move-in ready at your convenience. The current taxes are $550/annually and the land is free of any government programs.
