Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: My husband and I purchased this home in 1982. We raised our children here along with horses, pet sheep, goat, chickens, dogs and cats and birds. We chose to open up HORSEFEATHER CREEK to others because it holds a special place in our hearts. It has so much to offer that we wanted to share it with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Sun Prairie, WI, USA:
We have lived in this area all of our adult lives. We found this house and fell in love with it. We also wanted to raise our children in a country setting with lots of animals.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Scenic country setting with wide open spaces yet having the convenience of being close to a big city and all that has to offer. This is a beautiful, comfortable and secluded home.
