About the property

A 4250sf home with 4BR/4BA, pool table, firepit.

One of the finest homes in the Galena Territory, this one of a kind 4250sf home has the luxury, elegance and features you can’t find anywhere else. With 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 4 separate living areas and 4 decks, this is the home “4” you! Windows and light abound everywhere you turn in this brand new home on a 2.5 acre lot with beautiful trees and a fire pit for those relaxing outdoor evenings. Inside, exceptional furnishings and decorating provide the perfect setting to make your stay special.

When you enter the home, the lofted ceilings in the living room complement the stunning wood and granite trim surrounding the fireplace and walls. Beautiful hardwood floors are found in the living room and the adjacent kitchen and dining areas. A separate living area on the other side of the main level provides a place to watch television, enjoy the view from the many windows, or walk out to either of the two main level exterior decks, one of which has a gas grill. The kitchen in this home, which offers an adjacent dining area, will please even the most demanding chef. With custom Bader cabinetry, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances – including a five burner cooktop – there is enough room in this kitchen for everyone. A generous Master bedroom is also found on the main level. It features a king bed, a walk-in closet and an elegant master bath with a free standing claw-footed tub, a walk-in tiled shower with dual shower heads, and two vanity sinks. The master bedroom also offers a television and sliding door access to an exterior deck.

The upper level has a spacious living area that is bright and airy with windows all around. It features a queen sofa sleeper, a quiet area with a desk to work (if you must!) and 2 queen bedrooms and 2 baths, each with a private exterior deck. One of these bedrooms has a television. The laundry area is conveniently and discretely located on this level as well.

The walk-out lower level is as bright and airy as the rest of the home, with a multitude of windows that literally bring the outside in. This huge living space is arranged into four areas that provide something for everyone to do. The media area offers a large screen television and plenty of comfortable seating. Then there are three game areas, one with a pool table, another with a foosball table, and yet another with a game table. There is also another queen bedroom and large bath on this level.

Some of this home’s other features include cable television with free movie channels, a DVD player, dedicated wireless internet, and free access to the swimming pools, fitness center, and other amenities found at the Galena Territory Owner’s Club.

Thank you. Tracey! We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed our reunion! The houses were great and worked out well for us! Everyone was pleased with their accommodations.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our sibling reunion was perfect. Each couple had their own private space but there was ample room for togetherness. We found everything to be in excellent condition. Beds were very comfortable. The weather was unseasonably warm for November, so most everything was open. We were even able to rent a pontoon boat and see Lake Galena. Property manager, Tracey, was there to greet us and explain a few things, but all in all, we had an excellent experience. Maybe we won't wait 9 years to get together again.

Positively Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 4 days here over Thanksgiving and we were absolutely amazed at the superb quality and ample space of this beautiful home! The pictures provided on this site don't begin to do the interior of this home justice. The furniture, flooring, woodwork, cabinets, kitchen appliances, etc.were first class and very attractive. The gorgeous kitchen was very well stocked with more than adequate dishes, cookware, utensils, etc. We loved our family time here and look forward to a return stay!!

This house was breathtaking. My husband and I and 3 more couple stayed at this property 10/31/2014-11/3/2014. It was a last minute getaway for my birthday and I tell you that this was one of the best last minute getaways I have every taking. This house is Breathtaking,Beautiful and more. Everything is updated from the furniture to the appliances to the floors lots of space for a large family. The general store is not the far from the property. But I do recommend to try and bring all your food that you need. Because the general store is not cheap. Walmart is about 6 or 7 miles. But if you want to getaway and just chill in the the house cook drink and enjoy each other company this is the house to do it in. We Love Love Loved this .So if your planning on renting this house please take care of the house. Because we will be back. The only Con is that there is nothing around this house.
