                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: My husband and I have been married for 37 years and have three children, 4 grandchildren. We love spending as much time as we can with them all. My husband works for Aurora Health Care and enjoys bowling, fishing, snowmobiling, and tennis. I'm on my 35th year with the Wisconsin School for the Deaf and enjoy scrapbooking, teaching card-making classes, reading, and am a Close to My Heart consultant.

                  Why the Owner Chose Whitewater:
                  We chose this property for its excellent location. It's relatively close to our current home, so it's easy for us to maintain. It's only a few miles outside of Whitewater, so you have the peace and quite of the countryside without being too detached from the city. It also lies in the Kettle Moraine, so there's easy access to the year-round recreational activities.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The retreat is only 4 miles outside of Whitewater, which offers unique restaurants, antique shopping, and other activities. You also have the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater, which features sporting events, live theater, and music events. There are also numerous year-round recreational activities to partake in the scenic Kettle Moraine.
