Property Description

Imagine owning an awe-inspiring log cabin hidden amongst 120-acres of pristine timberland completely shrouded in privacy. This exquisite Mother Nature masterpiece combines an infectious harmony of beauty and grace in a dreamy permanent residence or spellbinding getaway retreat. Consider this your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own this recreational utopia. Whether this scenic estate becomes your personal residence, hunting camp or weekend getaway, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything remotely similar throughout the Midwest. Liberate yourself with a breath of fresh air in this Southwest Wisconsin world-class estate!

You’ll find this property conveniently located just 5-miles west of Cashton off State Highway 33. A meandering gravel driveway curves through a charming stand of timber where you’ll find the 3-bed, 2-bath Meadow Valley Log Home. This fairytale paradise echoes to outdoor enthusiasts that find lure in rustic elegance and divine wilderness. Handsomely built in 1998, the home encompasses a 28×38’ layout with a 12×14’ four season addition. The main level spotlights 2-bedrooms and 1-bath, while a loft area includes both an additional bed and bath feature, but also lounge area. There’s 224sq ft of covered deck space in front of the cabin. A large open canvas basement is currently utilized as a wood workshop area and may be converted into whatever you please. A forced air furnace, “Comfort Maker Heating & Air Conditioning” along with AO Smith Electric Hot Water Heater, Capital Water Softener, Sump Pump and 200-amp electrical service panel may all be found here. The home has a mix of hardwood, linoleum and carpet flooring throughout with an extensive amount of custom-built storage areas.

You’ll find a roomy detached 3-car garage with an unfinished bonus room that’s utilized as a woodworking storage shop. This 14x40ft bonus room above the garage can be finished into an overflow sleeping area for friends or family. In addition to the garage, you’ll find a 12x16ft tool shed as well as a 6x10ft firewood outbuilding.

While it’s easy to fall in love with the dwelling, those of you outdoor addicts haven’t even heard about the land! What you are looking at is something that you’ve likely never witnessed in your entire life. This fully wooded 119-acres is one of the extraordinarily few old-growth forests within the Midwest – unlike a anything you’ve laid eyes on. An old growth encompasses the later stages of stand development that typically differ from earlier stages in a variety of characteristics, which include tree size, accumulations of large dead woody material, number of canopy layers, species composition and ecosystem function. The property owner was named Land Steward of the Year with numerous awards and recognitions throughout the state of Wisconsin. You’ll find incredible stands of hardwood timber that’s enormous in size and high in value. In fact, a current timber appraisal was recently conducted, which penciled out to roughly $300,000 of marketable timber on the estate. Due note, this was appraised during a slight slump in the timber market and one could expect a far greater figure as prices rise.

The property features coveted top-access with miles of trail systems. You’ll find areas for food plots if you enjoy deer hunting as well as picture-perfect treestand hot spots. This neighborhood is known for trophy class whitetail. A natural spring on the property serves as the headwaters to the La Crosse River. This babbling creek snakes through the bottom valley offering a year-round water source for wildlife.

For tax purposes, the land is enrolled in Managed Forest Land-Open, however, can be converted into Closed if the application is submitted by June 1st, 2024. The taxes are currently $5,054/annually.
