Winneconne house description

*This is a good place to hunker down, relax, enjoy the scenic setting, and let the world go by for a bit.

*Or, you could use it as a base to experience Door County, the Manitowoc Naval museum, the North woods, the Packers, the lakes (Great and otherwise), the myriad of State Parks & hiking trails, the pastoral farm lands, and the rich European ethnic diversity of Eastern Wisconsin.

*Or you could attend the world famous annual EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) fly-in, Country USA, LifeFest or one of the other music or cultural events of the Fox River Valley.

*Personally though, we hope you give the first choice a try. This modern 3-bedroom, 1 1/2 bath home is set on 5 acres of moderately wooded land. Out the back door you'll find a pleasant multi-level bricked patio, with a hidden-garden quality. The path to the right passes under a trellis of trumpet vines to a tree-lined sidewalk, while a left turn on the winding path takes you thru a gated, free-standing rock wall, along a lesser rock wall, and past Kaida the protective dragon, into and thru a vegetated rock garden. Further on is a Sumac grove, and woods beyond.

*Exit the side patio doors onto a deck and pergula. Check for birds or critters by the pond -- perhaps hiding in the cattails -- then stroll down the board walk, across a small (very small) sand beach, and out to the end of the pier. Watch for the green heron. Return and go under the grape vine arbor tunnel made of railway ties.

*Continue to the wooden beam bridge and the hidden tree fort. If you find it, climb up, look around (some have even been known to sleep out there). Venture onto the swinging bridge that leads to the 'Crows Nest' platform (1). Your kids might imagine themselves pirates (or great explorers).

*When you -- err, I mean your kids -- tire of being pirates, climb back down and continue thru the pine grove and back across a lessor bridge. The path to the left leads up a small hill overlooking the pond (think sledding & skating) and back down over another bridge -- to yet more trails that lead to a smaller pond and prairie flower-strewn, crescent-shaped hill; while the other path taken snakes thru the brush and trees, by hazelnut cove, and opens past the rhubarb patch into a clearing and a 126 year old, partially restored, one-room school house (ask for the key and check it out). We'll let you discover for yourselves where the other trails go. (1)Tree fort, etc, were built with safety in mind.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1986

          About the owner: Mary and I (Andy) are retired -- from the worlds of health care and research chemistry. Now we're genealogy fanatics: so, as an added incentive for you to try our property, we offer you a free search of our Genealogy databases -- tailored specifically to your wishes!

          Why the Owner Chose Winneconne:
          We have spent 27 years improving this corner of the world. We like it. Our kids liked it (they're all grown now). Maybe you will like it too.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          *See the other sections, but in the summertime, back-road or Wiouwash-Trail bicycle riding is fun, and come wintertime we try to keep a 4 mile, or so, X-country ski trail broken -- stating right from the front door. * Of further local interest might be the Larson brother's air strip, the first in the state, near Winchester; the well-hidden Indian mounds overlooking Lake Winneconne; or in season, fresh apples you can pick from our small orchard.
