Vacation getaway?  Year round residence?  Retirement property?  All are good choices for this well-designed, cottage-style home at the end of Aspen Ct. in Wilde River.

The like new 1,580 square foot home features a 2nd story skylight, south-facing lower level windows and a bump-out bench window in the family room that give this sunwashed cottage an open, light, roomy feel.  Warm, earthy colored walls add to the comfortable design of this home.

The combined kitchen/dining/living areas have beautiful, exotic wood floors.  The 15×17 kitchen has striking hickory cabinets and higher end stainless appliances including a Maytag double door refrigerator/freezer and an Amana electric range with a matching overhead microwave & hood vent.

On cool evenings the decorative, cast iron Quadra-Fire pellet stove in the living room can heat the entire cottage – guaranteed to warm you right to the bone.  All rooms on the lower level have in-floor heat – toasty toes for you, the kids, Rover and Kitty.

The tiled, family room and a full bath complete the home’s first level.  Several nice features are included withthe 24×15 family room.  There is an enclosed, closet laundry set up here with hook-ups and a utility sink in place.  French doors lead outside to a patio area.  You can park your car in the garage and directly enter the home through the family room.  The garage has 9 ft. ceilings and an 8 ft. overhead door.  Pull in and park without removing your kayaks!  A more formal outside entry leads into the combined living space.

Upstairs is laid out with two 14×14 bedrooms separated by an 18×14 office landing wired for internet.  The upstairs is carpeted and is heated with high-mount electric baseboard units. The bedrooms both have large panel-door closets.  You’ll find more closet storage space tucked under the stairway.

“Open”, “airy” and “organized” are choice words to describe this adorable, 1.5-story cottage.

And then there is the beautiful 1.44-acre lot with a “green space” southern border.  It is landscaped with stone wall terracing and planned garden spaces, including some fenced-in planting areas.  For serious gardeners, there is also a small green house and garden shed.  A small pergola shades part of the backyard deck-patio and allows you to enjoy this space even when the summer sun is sweltering.   You can access the deck from the living room or from a gate in the backyard.

A private & wooded setting. . .a  comfortable & relaxing home . . . and a great location just minutes from cross country ski and mountain bike trails at Telemark , Namekagon River kayak and canoe landings and the quaint town of Cable for shopping and banking needs, this captivating 2 bedroom home is a great choice for both year round living and weekend recreation use.  (The Wilde River Association annual fee is $170.
