                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      Why the Owner Chose Galena:
                      I had never been to The Galena Territory until my life long friends purchased their home. They invited me to visit at which point I fell in love with the wooded rolling acres and historical Galena. There is so much captured beauty in those 6,800 acres. The location is a short easy drive from Chicago. Every time I get in my car and head to Galena my heart lightens, so many fond memories with friends. The Galena Territory is a beautiful place to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate. My chosen special getaway!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      I absolutely love being at my home in Galena. My home is located near the end of the road allowing for quiet peaceful surroundings. I enjoy the closeness to nature, watching wildlife leisurely stroll though the property, hearing cows mooing in the distance. The back upper deck provides open ski to hear as well as view the hot air balloons in flight, they pass near the home. As the stillness of evening arrives I look forward to relaxing in the hot tub, star gazing(the stars are so bright),and on cooler evenings I enjoy gathering wood to start a fire in the outside fire pit to roast marsh mellows and make smores. There are so many events, activities, walking trails, etc. that I will never be able to do it all. I hope you choose to stay and play in my home, and as I do each and every time, leave looking forward to your return trip to 15 Washburne Lane in The Galena Territory.
