About the Property

2 Bed 1 bath large spacious home

The house was built in 1954 after a trip to the north woods where the original owner first admired the wood interiors.
We purchased the house in July 2014 and began our adventure of painstakingly restoring the home to it’s original beauty. Our completion on the main floor was completed in April 17, 2015.


The small city of Delavan is located in southeastern Wisconsin near the Illinois border. Once the home of a large circus colony, today Delavan caters to visitors who enjoy outdoor activities including golf, water sports, hiking and skiing. Delavan offers over 100 acres of nature preserves, the Dribble Nature Trail, the New Hollister Wetlands Conservancy, golf courses and one of Wisconsin's largest ski resorts.
We continue to collect mid-century piece to replicate the original time frame and hope you enjoy your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We met in 1974 and married in 1976. Tony is a hardworking renaissance man. He can build, fix, repair and repurpose anything. He loves fishing and that’s how we came to love Lake Delavan. We would come up here to fish for the day. I, Andrea love to cook, garden and have become the tree hugger in the family. Life is an adventure and I meet people along the way that just add to this adventure. After this many years of being married we have a wonderful sense of working together as partners and look at this as a new adventure. We hope you enjoy the home and thank you for being part of our adventure.

Why the Owner Chose Delavan Lake, WI, USA:
We came to know the original owner and loved the history and wanted to restore it to it's original beauty. Being next door made it easier for us to work on it every chance we could.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This beautiful home is a restored 1954 home.
