If TC Steele worked with hammer and nail he would've probably created something similar to this beautiful Patinated Brown County Masterpiece . It is truly a work of art. Originally built in 1872 the barn/material was salvaged from Seymour, IN and meticulously transformed into this rustic retreat. Attention to detail and craftsmanship can be seen throughout with repurposed materials skillfully hiding modern amenities. This structure has dual HVAC systems, a back-up generator, built-in audio. Tons of granite were literally hauled in from New Hampshire to construct the 26' tall chimney, firebox/fireplace (which has a gas starter), and inglenook which seats 6. The main chamber of the structure is approx 30x50 with large hand made chandelier. This area has facilitated large parties, family gatherings, and holiday events for the owners but could be utilized for weddings, corporate retreats, or main dining hall for a B&B. Off this expansive room is an attached garage, library/office space paneled in Indiana Cherry, a large full kitchen, full bathroom, and upstairs guest quarters. Outside there is a lanai for extra seating, Bocce Ball court, manicured grounds. Current parking for 15 cars, more could be added. All on 55 acres, with stocked 20' deep 3 acre lake (with lake cottage that sleeps 2), backing to hundreds of acres of DNR forest. Just a number of scenic steps below you'll find an approx 7, 000 sqft 4 bedroom 4.5 bath home with features of note: large 25' high Brown County stone fireplace, wood floors, master on the main level and en-suite bath complete with steam shower, house audio system, gourmet kitchen with Brazilian Soapstone counters and Viking stove, indoor lap pool, 3 car attached garage, great room overlooking the lake, numerous decks, Hot Springs Jacuzzi, generator, lower level media room (large TV and custom speakers included). Additionally there is a 2 bed, 1 bath guest/honeymoon cabin built in 1888 with its own outdoor hot tub/amenities. The overall property has so much to offer it's hard to put everything on paper. The possibilities of use are endless. Bed & Breakfast, Wedding Venue, add more cabins and make this a retreat, corporate facility, or keep it as your own paradise. Included in the sale is the home, barn, cabin, fish house/cabin. For more details on the home/property feel free to request info or refer to MLS .
