This prairie-style home features 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with an endlessly versatile family room in the walkout lower level. Built in 2010, this two-story home is nestled in the small community of Blue Mounds, an easy 20-minute commute to Lands' End in Dodgeville or to Epic in Verona. Less than 500 feet from the stone columns of the front porch, the Military Ridge State Trail offers jogging, cross-country skiing, or even an emission-free commute for the ambitious bicyclist.
Frank Lloyd Wright's vision of "organic architecture" echoes inside and out of this custom-built home designed in unity with its surroundings. Overhanging eaves and natural two-tone siding enhance long horizontal lines to integrate the home with the landscape. The convenience and community of suburban living coexist seamlessly with the permanently protected greenspace just beyond the maintenance-free privacy fence.
The interior has been freshly painted with earth tones, while oak trim accentuates the clean lines of Craftsman door frames and square railings. A not-too-formal dining room lies to the left of the foyer, with a coat closet and powder room to the right. Local reclaimed barn wood has found new life upon the bench seating beneath a trio of double-hung windows. Stained glass Tiffany lighting scatters natural motifs throughout the open living space of the main floor.
Anchoring the great room is a gas fireplace flanked by tall windows, flooding the space with natural light. The kitchen features a stainless steel suite of Whirlpool appliances, thoughtfully designed cherry cabinetry with wine storage, an undermount sprayer sink, and custom tile backsplash. Sparkling granite is balanced by wide weathered planks adorning the breakfast bar. Wood-look flooring flows from the kitchen to the dining area. With sliding glass doors to the deck and to the patio below, indoor and outdoor living spaces blend into one.
A hallway leading to the oversized two-car garage and workshop acts as the perfect mudroom, featuring a drop zone of hooks and nooks. The laundry room is complete with lifted front-loading appliances, counter space, storage, and even a sink: everything you need to tackle messes before they reach the house.
Upstairs, the master suite's southeast-facing windows will wake you gently each morning with the glow of the rising sun. The dramatic tray ceiling provides a ledge for softer lighting as you wind down for bed. The master bath includes a double-sink vanity, a soaking tub, and lots of built-in storage. The roomy walk-in closet lies off the bathroom, featuring recessed lighting and a quality organizational system. Two additional bedrooms round out the upper floor, sharing a hall bathroom with a second soaking tub.
A final full bath and bedroom are located in the walkout lower level, including a tandem office or den. A storage room is accessible via both interior and exterior doors, handy for stowing the mower and all your outdoor toys. Bar seating overlooks a sunken family room with unlimited opportunity. With eight windows and ceilings soaring past ten feet, basement can't be the right word! This flexible space is ready to become a home theater, exercise studio, office, playroom, or even a driving range! The rustic wood accent wall mirrors the secluded feel of the untouched conservation easement bordering the backyard. This prairie home shines for its exceptional ability to transform into a homeowner's personal sanctuary.
