There are pleasant surprises around every corner at 5818 County Road KP in the Town of Berry, located between Middleton and Mazomanie. This gorgeous countryside property is tucked away from view, providing a secluded setting within the Driftless Area while just a short drive from local amenities.
Towering trees line the winding driveway, offering ample shade and room to meander through the expansive yard -- perfect for hosting family events, corporate gatherings, and even weddings.
Situated atop the hill is the nearly 4,000-square-foot home, its stone accents blending beautifully into the natural landscape.
Adding to the serenity of this property are the plantings and cascading waterfall on both sides of the paver walkway leading up to the front door. This calming feature is mimicked by a large rock and granite bubbler on the expansive patio, located along the north side of the house.
With its open concept layout, the house is described by the sellers as having an "airy and bright" feel, and each room blends seamlessly into the next. There's nothing quite like opening the windows on a summer day and letting the breeze circulate throughout the home, which also takes full advantage of the sunlight.
Inside, the chef's kitchen is centrally located and features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. You can easily chat with guests while preparing a meal, or watch TV while washing dishes.
The dining alcove is surrounded by windows and has double access to the patio.
The living room features vaulted ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace, which makes the house extra warm and cozy in the winter.
On the west side of the house, the polygonal space overlooking the waterfall feature and trees is a relaxing environment for a home office or den. French doors on either side allow the room to be closed off for more privacy or to reduce noise during phone calls. Parents can even work on their computer while keeping an eye on the kids in the adjacent rooms.
Next to that is the family room, featuring birch hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, and a space for a full dining table for holiday meals.
You'll also find a powder room and closet space before entering the laundry room and access to the garage.
On the east side of the house, the sunrise filters into the master suite. The deck is a perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee and book while listening to the birds, and perhaps catch a glimpse of a deer and her fawn who occasionally wander through the property.
French doors open to the upgraded master bath, which features a heated porcelain floor, a free-standing soaker tub surrounded by windows, a large glass shower, and dual sinks.
The second bedroom and full bathroom are also located on the main level, and the third bed and bath are in the exposed basement. All bedrooms feature walk-in closets and full windows.
Also downstairs is a rec room area that walks out to another stone patio. This area leads to the fenced in portion of the yard, which could be used for a dog play area. The sellers would be willing to remove the fencing.
The unfinished portion of the basement is heated and has tons of additional storage space and another washer, dryer, and sink. There is also an overhead door behind one of the two extra-long garage stalls, so there is plenty of room to back-in a boat or trailer. Or, like a previous owner did, turn the area into a workshop for his classic cars -- especially since the sellers recently installed more lights.
Because of how well-sealed the garage and basement are, even in winter the 2-car garage stays about 50 degrees. There are also drains beneath where the vehicles are parked so you can easily wash them.
There is also a 30' x 30' outbuilding with a new overhead door, which makes storing lawn mowers, equipment, and tools a breeze. The tractors and yard equipment are negotiable.
South of the pole shed is a large circular fire pit buffered by trees. At night you'll likely hear frogs from the nearby pond or coyotes in the distance.
This 8.43-acre property was part of a 35-acre split by the farmer who owns the surrounding fields. Part of the area used to be an apple orchard, and you'll even find wild plum, which winemakers might find appealing. The seller also used to maintain a walking path through the woods that contains red oak, elm, and more apple trees.
The Ice Age Trail is less than a mile from their property, which you can hike toward Indian Lake County Park, one of Dane County's most popular parks that also features a dog exercise area.
Bicyclists find this hilly terrain particularly challenging and rewarding, especially during the annual Horribly Hilly Hundreds bike ride that goes right past this property. Other annual events nearby include the Spring Art Tour throughout south central Wisconsin, Trout Days along Black Earth Creek in Cross Plains, and several community-wide garage sales.
Just a short drive from Madison, Middleton, and Cross Plains, the home is close to amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants, and coffee shops. The Town of Berry is also near the Village of Mazomanie, a gateway community brimming with economic potential. West of that is Spring Green, home of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin and the world-class American Players Theatre.
