We’ve all heard of the properties that come up for sale once in a lifetime… well it’s here! This property is meticulously maintained and sits on a gorgeous piece of land that you have the opportunity to call your own. As soon as you enter the driveway you are welcomed by stately autumn blaze maples that line the driveway, flanked by blueberry fields to your left and flower fields to your right. Everything that you see has been planted and maintained by the current owners and is currently run as a seasonal Upick blueberry and bouquet farm. As you drive down the lane you will notice a sweet little flower shed that has been set-up to welcome visitors and compliments the rest of the buildings on this property.
You will enter a circle driveway that takes you to the entrance of the home, the garage or the barn that was restored to its former glory even keeping its rooster tail appearance. The grounds around the house have been intentionally left simple in keeping with the simplicity of this home’s design. The goal was to build a home that was modern and yet felt as though you were stepping back in time. This house was built with convenience and gathering in mind and that it flowed well from room to room and yet perfectly relaxful for the entire family.
Upon entering you will immediately notice the neutral decor and timeless feel of this build. The concrete floors were painstakingly finished to a beautiful shine that is very forgiving for the country lifestyle. A large limestone fireplace with a massive old wood beam and shiplap grace the south wall of the living room where you will have more than enough room to gather with friends and family or to simply curl up and enjoy the gas fireplace all winter long. Just off the living room is a well designed kitchen that is both functional and user friendly. It offers an impressive island with a concrete countertop able to handle any job you give it! You will also notice the oversized large refrigerator/freezer and an extra large pantry tucked into the corner of the room. Dining room is perfectly placed and is surrounded by the beautiful views. You can access the patio off of the kitchen and/or through the main floor bedroom, easily the best place to be while watching the sun go down.
The primary bedroom is on the main floor and can be shut off from the rest of the house and to have your own suite. Beautifully tiled shower with glass door, a pocket door for the toilet, large walk-in closet with built-ins…everything perfectly placed with abundant space. The primary bathroom easily doubles as the main floor bath.
Across the hall from the primary bedroom is the office attached to a very spacious laundry/mudroom, conveniently located off of a heated over-sized garage and adjoining mechanical room. The upstairs boasts three large bedrooms, a large bath, linen closet and a generous living room with a kitchen and island for entertaining. This room makes having get-togethers a breeze and your company will feel right at home. Awning windows let the breeze in and keep the rain out of the bedrooms, along with views that never get old. There is also a den/study on the second floor that also doubles as a guest bedroom.
The 21.68 acres is a nice mix of tillable, pasture and woods and would be perfect for a small cattle operation or horse farm. There are spring fed creeks that flow year round. If you are a hunter numerous deer, turkey and pheasants call this property home and several quality bucks have been harvested. Imagine having your own comfortable box blind just a few minutes walk from your home that is perfectly located to take advantage of the long draws from the north that feed the deer within yards of your hideaway. For bowhunting season, there is plenty of timber to hide out in and see deer most every time you sit. The property has water year round and plenty of food to keep a sizable population close and in range. There are plenty of great spots for food plots and the most western part of the property has not been touched for many years. A great place to plant more trees to increase the timber size.
The farm currently operates as a successful blueberry and bouquet u-pick that has been featured in several news publications and stories and is very well known in the upper midwest(www.berryandbloomfarm.com). If the future owners do not want to operate it as a business, it could easily be converted back to tillable, pasture or hay ground by not planting the flowers and selling the blueberry plants. Or keep the blueberries and treat yourself and friends to hundreds (eventually thousands) of pounds of fresh blueberries each year.
