High on a bluff overlooking the majestic Mississippi River near Galena and Chestnut Mt Ski Resort is a special Conservation Community which combines the privacy of individual land ownership with the benefits of common lands and services. Tract #1 which consists of 6.40+/- acres is one of only 16 homesites within the total of 250+/- acres. 145 of those acres are now protected by the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation for its algific talus slope and rare Pleistocene Era geologic features and fauna characteristic of the Driftless Region. Entering these doors opens to views beyond! The view from every room in this house will amaze even the most seasoned traveler! You will never want to leave this 3700+/- sq ft custom designed home built in 1991 of the finest materials atop the point nearest the Great Mississippi River in the entire development. The design features 16’ cathedral ceilings in the great room area and a two-sided floor to ceiling native stone fireplace. The maple floors softly reflect the light and blend with the light toned white oak cabinetry throughout, so the “views beyond” remain the focal point of every room. The master suite consists of two rooms (one with a floor to ceiling native stone fireplace), two walk-in closets and a large bathroom with whirlpool tub as well as separate shower. On the lower walk-out level there is a spacious family room with wood-burning fireplace, wet bar, and a library area. There are two additional bedrooms and another full bathroom on this level, as well. Even the huge workshop/storage area has windows to enjoy the view of the Great River. Electric baseboard was added to this level as an afterthought so there are now 3 heat sources on the lower level. In summer the favorite rooms for dining and living are the spacious screened porch and the open deck off the upper level both of which also enjoy majestic views of the river. Photos cannot convey the grandeur of the river you will experience when you come to see this property. Covenants and Restrictions apply so as to preserve the character of this unique community. Annual Association Fees cover maintenance of the buried utilities to lot lines, community wells, snow-plowing roads, driveways, sidewalks, waste and recycle dumpsters, maintenance of roads and fences, mowing of the meadows and pond maintenance. For the conservation-minded, rugged individualist who values seclusion and privacy.
