About the “Old Malueg Farm”…
Featuring just over 127 acres of rolling hills and mature woodlands, along with roughly 1,320 feet of Embarrass River frontage, the “Old Malueg Farm” has a great local history.
The original dairy barn and old wooden hay shed have since been removed, but two standing silos and the solid fieldstone barn foundation remains. A contractor’s inspection has determined that the original barn foundation still has the integrity to be rebuilt upon should the need or desire present itself. Reclaimed wood from the original structures can even be found on display at a local brewery.
Although it was originally planned to renovate the nearly 100-year-old brick farmhouse, the structure had long been abandoned and in such disrepair that unfortunately the farmhouse could not be saved.
Thus, the old farmhouse was taken down and replaced with a custom 1,890 square foot home offering plenty of amenities, including a large pantry, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a wood-burning stove, three skylights and a finished basement with a wet bar featuring an additional full-sized stainless refrigerator and dishwasher.
Take in the wonderful views from the over-sized deck, relax by the fire pit, or get some handiwork done in the large shed with workshop area. A 26’ x 26’ two-car garage also offers a 312 square foot bunkhouse to accommodate additional guests.
About the Land…
This sprawling property is ideal for hunting, fishing, mountain-biking, hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, river tubing, kayaking and so much more.
Roughly 70 acres of farmland are currently rented out at $85 per acre, per year, providing modest revenue to help offset the already low property taxes.
At the property’s highest peak above the middle stone wall (stone walls separate the old dairy pastures) is a breathtaking view which includes a long segment of the Embarrass River.
Scattered along the edge of forest land are several mature apple trees of different varieties, enjoyed by the diverse wildlife population. Also scattered among the treelines are wild grape vines, raspberry bushes, rhubarb plants and the occasional wild asparagus plant.
Regarding the wildlife, there is an abundance of deer. The property’s location between cropland, dairy farms, dense woods and the river has created a sanctuary of sorts. It’s actually quite unusual to take a walk through the woods without kicking up several deer in the process.
Many broods of turkeys visit the land daily, as do geese, cranes, ducks (on the river) and bald eagles. It’s also not uncommon to see foxes, ground hogs, red and gray squirrels, raccoons and even the occasional fisher.
The Embarrass River runs along a portion of the property line and adds to the recreational and aesthetic aspects of the land. The warmer months provide the opportunity to kayak, tube and fish the river. Both bass and northern can be caught right off the shoreline of the property.
Beyond its recreational qualities, this property offers plenty of additional potential. With a little effort, one could envision a horse barn on the old barn foundation and paddocks adjacent. With a reasonable investment in equipment, the currently-rented farmland could be used to grow organic vegetables or maintain one of Wisconsin’s burgeoning wine or brandy grape farms.
The Old Malueg Farm is truly a serene place with many possibilities, but you’re also more than welcome to simply relax on the deck and enjoy the beautiful landscape it provides.
