Talk about indoor and outdoor living!
A six-bedroom home in Wisconsin — more specifically, a 5,254-square-foot lot that looks more like a cave than a house — will soon be in new hands.
Spreading out at 1920 S. Springdale Road in New Berlin, which went viral contracted for his extraordinary listing images — one of which shows a two-story living space with stone walls, a gravel driveway and lots of indoor greenery — his listing representative told The Post.
Last listed for $1.2 million, final retail price not yet available. The purchase closes in about a month – and the deal not only marks a new chapter for the mansion, but also the end of about five years Bouncing and bouncing in the market at different asking prices, according to Zillow.
One thing is certain: the new owners already have it listed the house on Airbnb and notes that it will be available for rent from May 26th. Referred to as the “Garden of Eden” on its Airbnb page, the new owners say they are “undertaking a massive renovation” to update the spread inside and out. But it seems that the house’s signature elements, like the great outdoor space, will remain intact.
“You might feel like you’re visiting your favorite Rainforest Cafe, or possibly invading a scene from [‘Jumanji’]’ says the description. “Whatever the case, every stress in the world will be melted away by the warmth of the sun shining through the 20-foot south-facing windows and skylights.”
The real estate agent of the house, Christian Anderson of eXp Realtythe Post said the current owner built the property 28 years ago – raising his children there and giving them a fun space to grow.
“It started out as something unique,” Anderson said, “to bring the outside in a little bit.”
But since the kids are out of the house these days, the owner will be moving to Arizona. He leaves quite a legacy.
The six bedroom home sits on over 17 acres and also features an approximately 5 foot deep indoor pool and indoor koi pond. The listing images additionally show walls painted with cave-style etchings to reinforce the theme and the walkways bridged.
Everything inside is bespoke, including the kitchen cabinets – adorned with vine and floral designs – and seating for 16 in custom butterfly-shaped chairs. The stone walls extend to other areas of the house, such as the pool room and a bathroom – of which there are seven in total. The upstairs bedrooms even have balconies that look down onto the main living area – and there’s enough space for a home gym or music practice room.
Located 20 minutes from downtown Milwaukee and 90 minutes from Chicago, perks extend outdoors as well. There are hiking and biking trails around the property and a 3.5-acre spring-fed lake with a beach and catch-and-release fish, according to the Airbnb listing notes. (Boats, paddle boards, and other water toys are provided with the Airbnb.) Though guests can swim indoors, they can also swim in the lake during the warmer months.
Aside from the home’s quirky design, it’s the sprawl of the land that also stands out, according to Anderson.
“Seventeen acres … you don’t find that stuff that close to Milwaukee,” he said.
