The SpaceIn 2013, I purchased this property. I was learning to golf and am an admirer of Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural style. When I learned this house was the first "model home" built for the resort and was designed by Wright's chief draughtsman, John Howe, I became even more thrilled! The home is unique to The House On the Rock Resort complex. It is independent of the resort but is part of it's former history. I have moved farther north of the SG region but my family and I love the house and want to continue to enjoy it as well as share it with others!
The first thing I notice about the property is the gorgeous tall pines surrounding it. Once inside the house, the view outside towards the golf course is spectacular. The outside comes inside through the expanse of windows! The space feels serene, open and light. The screen porch and patio brings one even closer to nature. I love sitting there and listening to the spring peepers--or frogs! So many birds frequent my yard-bluebirds nest in the bird house, grosbeaks at the feeders. In the winter I have deer come right up to my windows. I also have noticed coyotes in the snow frolicking! Guest AccessAll areas of the house are for your use except for the garage. As I do not have a basement, this is for my personal storage. Interaction with GuestsI am available by phone, e-mail and text before and during your visit. The NeighborhoodThe house as adjacent to The House on the Rock Resort. You will experience the beautiful natural landscape as well as gardens cultivated by the resort.
A wall of windows overlooks the beautiful golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. There are ponds and a variety of trees and plantings which bring migrating birds and other wildlife close to the property.
Enjoy the birds and wildlife surrounding the home or take a short drive to Tower Hill State park for hiking and to see the Historic Shot Tower. Swimming, fishing and kayaking on the Wisconsin River is 2 miles away. Wander in Spring Green, noted as one of the 20 top small towns by Smithsonian Magazine, exploring its many unique shops, cafes, bookstore and art galleries. Other Things to NoteGolfers occasionally have balls that get very close to the house so observe some caution when sitting on the patio!
