Immerse yourself in this custom-built slab-on-grade home on 60+ spectacular acres within a quick drive of Austin, Owatonna, Albert Lea, and Dodge Center. If you desire to add power gates, you will be greeted by a 1,500’+ long private asphalt driveway, with underground power at the road. As you drive into the property, your eyes will be immediately drawn to the spring-fed pond that is 20’+ deep. The pond includes a sand beach, outdoor shower, pier, swim platform, concrete patio for entertaining, and power and water hookups for multiple campers. The pond is a great place for swimming and entertaining, and it is visited year-round by the abundant wildlife that calls this property home, as well as migrating birds. Enjoy the magnificent and expansive well-groomed yard with towering oak trees. The timber portion of the property is home to deer and turkey and offers excellent opportunity for a hunter. There are roughly 17 acres of tillable land that have come out of the CRP program and could be put back into production or used for livestock or horses. It could also be for pasture or re-enrolled into a government income-producing program. This private oasis has an extensive trail system that can be used for nature walks, horseback rides, cross-country skiing, ATV riding, and more. Call this place your serenity garden, and you can listen to Sandhill Cranes, Cardinals, Grosbeaks, Orioles, hummingbirds, and many more. There is a beautiful greenhouse just outside the kitchen for growing and harvesting your food and herbs. Adjoining the greenhouse is a screen porch, which provides a great place to enjoy a summertime meal.

The exquisite home was built in 2017 and was thoughtfully designed with wonderful amenities and tons of windows to enjoy year-round wildlife viewing. The house is slab-on-grade with zero entry showers and in-floor heat. The home features a massive gourmet kitchen with a vaulted ceiling open to the dining and living space. The kitchen has custom cabinets, granite countertops, a built-in Thermador fridge and freezer, a Jennaire gas stove/griddle with custom hood & stone accent, two Kitchen Aid wall ovens, a pantry, a beverage fridge, a trash compactor, two Blanco sinks, and a massive island for entertaining. The vaulted living space has a floor-to-ceiling gas-stone fireplace, and Bose surrounds sound speakers. The second living room features a floor-to-ceiling natural wood-burning fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stone. The house has a ¾ guest bathroom with custom-built vanity, a guest bedroom, a large office that could easily be turned into a third bedroom, and wide hallways. The mudroom and laundry room are right off the oversized 2-car garage with in-floor heat, floor drain, and water supply. The large main suite has a lavish private bathroom with a walk-in tile shower, a custom-built vanity with dual sinks, and a walk-in closet with a storm shelter/safe room. As mentioned, the house has in-floor heat and dual backup forced air furnaces.

The outside of the home was designed just as well as the inside. It features Everlog siding, a real stone accent, steel shake-style singles, and LP siding on the rear. The front and rear porches are covered with outdoor fans and custom-stamped concrete, which makes for a good place to lounge with a cold drink.

The entertaining doesn’t end at the home on this property. What the sellers call the “Family Lodge,” you will find a beautiful, extensive entertaining space. The room has colored concrete floors, a cozy living room with a floor-to-ceiling stone gas fireplace, a wet bar, a stunning eat-up island, a bathroom, and a bedroom. The seller uses this space for their private gym, sauna, hot tub, pool table, ping pong table, badminton court, and room for bean bag toss. This space is heated with a 4-zone in-floor heat boiler system and a forced air furnace. The entire shop can be heated with the outdoor wood boiler if desired. This space is amazing for entertaining, no matter the time of the year. Adjoining the “Family Lodge,” you will continue into a 40’x60’ heated shop with overhead doors on both ends and tons of storage. To top off your entertaining needs is a painted pickleball court for those large gatherings. Off the heated shop, you will find a 32’x50’ cold storage area with gravel floors and overhead doors on both ends.

Other amenities worth noting about the property are as follows: a 1,000-gallon propane tank is owned, the large-capacity outdoor wood-burning boiler can heat the entire shop and Family Lodge area, and the house has commercial Christmas lights installed with a programable timer in the mechanical room. The house is wired with a Generator Master Switch for generator backup. Next to the outdoor wood boiler is a covered shelter area for cut firewood. There is a diesel fuel barrel and a small grain bin for wildlife feed.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own this majestic property, offering endless recreation and luxurious living possibilities. Experience the best of both worlds with modern comforts and natural beauty in perfect harmony. Showings are by appointment only for pre-qualified buyers: contact listing agent Bob Stalberger.
