Check out the custom website at http://wapsipiniconretreat.com. This sensational, secluded property is tucked away among the rolling hills of rural Jones County. The 40-acres includes numerous eco-systems, heavy woods, trails, prairie grass, several fish dams & access to the Wapsipinicon River. Orchard includes apple, cherry & walnut trees. Inspiration for the home came from "Not So Big House" by architect Susan Susanka, reflecting quality wood & natural materials to enhance daily living. The rustic home was designed with efficiency in mind: 2”x6” construction allows ample insulation, newer geo-thermal heating & cooling system & placed ideally for solar orientation & natural interior light. During winter months, the front atrium provides passive solar for additional heat on sunny days & wood-burning fireplace with blower keeps off the chill. Natural ash wood floors throughout. Spacious kitchen has custom cherry-wood cabinets, with natural gas stove & all appliances included. Beautiful woodland views from every room. Great room has vaulted ceilings with barn beams, clerestory windows & space for a large farmer’s table for enjoying meals together. Main level master suite has a loft, walk-in closet with washer/dryer hook-up & master bathroom. Soak up the views as you relax in the antique, porcelain tub. There’s another spacious bedroom & half bath on the main floor. The lower level includes the 3rd bedroom, full-bath, bonus room/storage area, current laundry room & drive-under garage & workshop. The screened gazebo is a wonderful place to view the landscape & has room for a double-bed futon, making this a fun sleeping area when weather permits! Interior has been completely repainted. The exterior is low maintenance, with recently painted concrete hardy board siding & a new metal roof. Most windows have been replaced. There is a shed for firewood & storage. Perfect for buyers who appreciate maintaining the quality of the land through the conservation easement.
