Lake Country has plenty of what you could call a Wisconsin kind of paradise. Tree-lined lakes, secluded fishing holes, rolling hills and winding roads. One home located on 19 acres on the banks of Crooked Lake and the Bark River takes advantage of those assets.
Real estate broker Jon Spheeris is selling Summit home and describes it as "a nature lovers dream." He says the homeowners built the house wanting privacy. Indeed, there are no speedboats or pontoons on Crooked Lake, only the self-propelled kind of watercraft.
"The family loved the outdoors," says Spheeris. "There's a pier on Crooked Lake and a pier on the Bark River, and you can kayak and canoe to three different lakes."
Large windows, covered porches and screened-in patios also embrace the outdoors.
The interior is impressive, too; it's what you'd expect from a home priced at seven figures. The kitchen features a six-burner stove, butcher block island, two ovens and two refrigerators. There are five garages, and there is a separate guest house. Each of the six bedrooms has a bathroom with heated floors. Spheeris says, "It has lots of architecture details. For example, it has beautiful wide oak floors. There's extensive use of moldings throughout and beautiful antiques that are period to the house."
Inside and out, the Nantucket-style house is somebody's dream home.
