—The Castle of Spring Green, a French chateau-inspired estate set on more than 180 acres of sprawling green valleys and wooded hilltops in the famed Wisconsin River Valley.
The secluded, luxury estate offers over 10,000 square feet of architectural and design excellence with limestone cut rock, numerous stone fireplaces, rugged beamed ceilings and custom timber floors. Each of the eight bedrooms has their own private balcony with breathtaking views of the unspoiled landscape, and the four levels of the castle include a full basement and rooftop terrace.
Setting out from the one mile driveway and crossing the bridge over the Blue River, The Castle Spring Green rivals the scenery of the French countryside. There are miles of hiking and biking paths meandering through fields of wildflowers and two spring-fed ponds stocked with trout, bass and panfish, as well as an abundance of wild turkey, white-tailed deer and water fowl inhabiting the property where a river flows through for paddling and kayaking enjoyment.
“This property is extraordinary and so is the opportunity to purchase it at a great price,” states Kelly Lovegrove, director of marketing for the auction company. “The variety of possibilities for this estate is a huge attraction and the online bidding provides those sophisticated luxury real estate buyers with the anonymity and convenience they desire.”
In the past, the castle has been used as a country inn, private hunting lodge, special event/wedding venue and a corporate retreat/conference center, but it can easily become one’s primary residence or vacation getaway.
“The owner is looking to raise capital for other business ventures, so in an effort to sell quickly, he has opted to utilize the online auction and low minimum bid to quickly find a ready, willing and able buyer,” states Lovegrove. “The castle is already attracting widespread interest not only nationally, but internationally. It’s the complete package; a luxury estate on private grounds with year-round outdoor activities at a great price.”
Just 45 minutes west of Madison and three hours from Chicago, the property is located west of Spring Green in Grant County which is home to a flourishing cultural and artistic community with local attractions including the famous Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, the Cave of the Mounds, the House on the Rock and the American Players Theatre which specializes in classic theater in a natural, 1,148-seat amphitheater and an intimate 200-seat indoor theater.
Also available in this online auction are several other properties owned by the same owner; trophy hunting and fishing land, development land with rare waterfront residential zoning, a resort-style compound with a main cabin and six other fully-equipped units, a private, stocked lake with a charming waterfront cottage that sleeps eight, and even a private, buildable +/- 25 acre island.
