Craftsman Style Country Estate on Approximately 110 Acres

County: Vernon
E3083 North Ridge Rd , Genoa WI 54632

Property Description

Nestled in the scenic embrace of Viroqua’s western landscape, between Viroqua and Genoa, this country estate sprawls across approximately 110 acres. Approximately 40 acres of certified organic cropland harmonize with the land currently cultivating alfalfa and providing rental income at $160 per acre. Approximately 68 acres of wooded MFL land with approximately three miles of well-groomed trails invites hiking, ATVing, and horseback riding.

As you enter this beautiful home, ash hardwood flooring sets the stage while solid quartersawn oak doors and trim accent the beauty. This one-of-a-kind home is a singular example of stunning artisan craftsmanship that is rarely found in homes built this side of the 20th century. Painstakingly designed exclusively for the site, the timeless design and handwrought details blend effortlessly into the embrace of panoramic hilltops and richly wooded valleys. This home delivers a bespoke fusion of contemporary homebuilding with the traditional ethos of quality craftsmanship.

The kitchen with its granite countertops and pantry along with the living room, dining room, and office, frame panoramic views overlooking the vast acreage to the south.  Upstairs the home features a master bedroom with a private balcony, a spacious walk-in closet, and a master bathroom with porcelain tile flooring, a walk-in shower, a heated towel rack, and a marble vanity top. There are two additional bedrooms that share a full bathroom with a shower over tub arrangement, and a laundry area. The heated floors in the two upstairs bathrooms and the main floor mudroom entryway are examples of the attention to detail that have gone into this property.

This home is extremely energy efficient and very tight with 4 inches of insulation around all the exterior walls and the basement foundation.  The basement in-floor heat, which is not yet hooked up to a heat source, circulates through most of the basement floor. One section of the basement, which is already studded out, was designed not to have in-floor heat so it could be used as a cool storage area.

Are you interested in sustainability? The home and workshop/garage are heated and cooled by electricity. The 12.5kW solar panels sell electricity back to the power company. This translates into a utility bill, during the coldest months of the year, being less than $300 per month. During the warmer months of the year electricity is free. The homes triple-pane windows with their special heat gain coating provide significant heat gain in the winter. In the summer the overhangs provide shade so there is no solar heat gain throughout most of the day.

The 96’ x 40’ finished workshop/garage has working in-floor heat throughout most of it, split units provide heating and cooling, the ceiling is 12’ 10” in height, the front garage door is 10’ high x 12’ wide, and it has a rainwater collection system and a UV purification light. This is an amazing space. You must see it to appreciate it.

The 60’ x 40’ shed has a gravel floor which could make this the ideal horse property.

Other unique features of this property include a fresh air system in the home, a 620’ deep well with a constant pressure pump, a large garden area, direct access in the valley to snowmobile trails, and a ridgetop setting with amazing views throughout the four seasons.

Come and see this very special property for yourself. A blend of land and living where attention to detail, quality craftsmanship, and love of the earth have all come together.
