                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: We fell in love with this century old farm at first sight, with no intention other than returning the property to its original glory. After several years of cleaning, refinishing, and painting the property is nearing its full potential. We enjoyed going to our little retreat (only 11 miles away from our own old farm house), but realized we wanted to share it with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Waupaca:
                  We have a love for century old farms, history, and antiques. We needed to keep this home from falling into more disrepair.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  This home has such a special feel, the minute you drive in. We loved the quiet lakefront and peaceful setting. From the nice little kitchen, the pretty sunroom (with a view of the lake), to the fireplace in the living room, we fell in love with the property right away!
