Property description

Unit 4 is perched amongst a canopy of oak and birch trees - you can stand on the balcony, reach out, and touch leaves and branches over 2-stories from the ground! Unit 4 is one of eight condominiums in a building nestled amongst a mature birch/oak forest with views over the Lake Wisconsin valley. Casual, whimsical, bright furnishing. Italian ceramic floor in bath and kitchen. Woodburning stove insert in the original, beautiful, stone fireplace. Small firepit outside for quiet summer/fall eves; or hearty-folks roasting s'mores in winter.
Lovely, oiled-teakwood laminate floors LR and Hall - carpeted bedrooms. You may find yourself resting on a pillowcase embroidered by my Cornish grandmother; or snuggled under a quilt made of squares of men's suit material; or find pencil drawings sent to Cornwall from the trenches of WWI...poke about...little surprises all over.
AND...and whole bass fiddle case of books!

Lots of wildlife - deer, turkey, raccoon, owl, and birds of all sorts fly over or walk through these remarkable surrounds. Marvelous earthrise and earthsets. I think the trees up here talk.

Parfrey's Glen official entrance is a 20-minute walk away. Devil's Lake is a 10-minute ride. Devil's Head Ski/Golf Resort is 200 yards down Bluff Road. Quaint Merrimac FREE ferry (seasonal). Cascade Mountain Ski/Snowboarding or Wollersheim Winery/Sauk City - 20-minute ride. Attraction notebook available in unit.

Plenty of QUIET. Noise restriction after 11p. You could write your book here! Remarkable views. Friendly condo neighbors.

Keywords: Condominium - Rocky Glen is about 200 yards up Bluff Road and on the opposite side of the entrance to Devil's Head Ski and Golf Resort

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Comfy in the living room - fireplace blazing nearby and watching something wonderful on PBS...probably the Dicken's series...what teriffic tear-jerkers!

Why the Owner Chose Merrimac:
How could I NOT have fallen in love with this place!? (I didn't mean to...it was a first project for me/my chef brother.) Although not a skiier or golfer, I AM a walker and I just step out the door and I'm nearly in the woods...AND from the balcony I can touch the nearby oak tree high, high up. Only squirrels or cranes get a better view.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Peace - to watch the trees 'converse' with each other - the neverending changes framed by each window to the forest - the very occasional concert (Los Lobos a several several years ago) or fireworks from Devil's Head Resort on New Year's Eve - sitting around the firepit on a summer or fall evening - the water from a quartzite well in the basement (it bypasses the water softening system otherwise required for the building) - staying up the nights male owls joust in the air above our parking lot (I always think of the Quiddich field from Harry Potter.)
