Property Description

Rare opportunity to own your very own Galena log cabin retreat situated on 11.61 acres +/- with approximately 1,500 ft of frontage along the Smallpox Creek. Conveniently located just south of Galena, this home is surrounded by the beautiful bluffs of the driftless region and less than a 5 mile drive from both downtown Galena and Chestnut Mountain Ski Resort. A 500+ ft private lane lined with Blue Spruce trees leads back to this meticulously cared for 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom log cabin home overlooking the Smallpox Creek below. The main floor features open concept including a completely remodeled kitchen with granite countertop and backsplash and an impressive great room highlighted by tall vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and a floor to ceiling wood burning fireplace. Off the great room is a 4 seasons room and access to a brand new deck, both located in perfect positions to overlook your acreage. Rounding out the main floor is a newly remodeled full bathroom with main floor laundry, as well as a newly installed bedroom. Heading upstairs you will find the large master wing with it’s own private bath that was newly remodeled to include a step in tiled shower and jacuzzi tub. The master also features its own private balcony and a short hallway lined with closet space on each side. Also on the upper level, is a large lofted area currently used as an additional bedroom or could also serve as an additional living space or office with its open views over the great room below. The walkout lower level has a third full bath, and plenty of open space that is ready to be finished to your liking. In addition to the 2 car attached garage is another lower level garage/utility room with an overhead door that exits to the rear of the home. The entire exterior of the home was stripped down and resurfaced within the past few years, among many other updates in recent years that are too long to list here (list available on request). Schedule your private viewing to come appreciate this home and property firsthand and maybe you could be the next owner of this Galena log cabin!
