This 17-acre estate offers complete privacy and seclusion with owned frontage on the federally protected St. Croix River. Seldom is there an opportunity to acquire a property of this significance featuring distinctive architecture, exceptional quality construction and stunning decor. Located at the end of a private drive with no other homes in sight, this property is a perfect retreat for weekend getaways or for enjoying the surrounding beauty year-round.
The home and landscaping have been impeccably maintained. The interiors are unique, with an octagon-shaped dining room that reaches to the highest point in the structure serving as the focal point. A cozy sitting room with stone fireplace is tucked behind the living room, which also has a stone fireplace complementing the stone pillars that have been strategically placed to differentiate spaces.
An open kitchen with double islands and an informal dinette flows beautifully into the living areas, providing a delightful entertainment environment. This entire area includes California gold slate flooring with in-floor heat.
The owner’s suite on the main level features built-in personal storage and a private bathroom that includes a double-sink vanity, a walk-in shower with separate Japanese soaking tub, a Toto washlet toilet, and Robern mirror systems. The flooring is oak wide stained plank and painted a warm cream color. Doors lead to a private patio overlooking the river with a hot tub. Can’t you just envision luxuriating in the hot tub under the stars with the St. Croix River flowing at the base of the bluff?
The second level has been designed around the balcony that overlooks the octagon dining room below and includes a uniquely designed skylight intended to introduce natural light into the open shaft and the dining area. Two guest suites are positioned off the balcony area with a spacious den/office space on the opposite side overlooking the river.
The well-groomed grounds include extensive use of stone found on the property with perfect integration of indigenous materials into the overall design. Perennial gardens, a stone walkway, ponds, a fire pit, and a saltwater pool with pool house charm the eye with a continuous change of scenery. With a stair system leading to the river and walking trails throughout the acreage, Turkey Falls provides a private health club.
While presently in use as a weekend retreat, this home can certainly qualify as a year-round residence for a new owner. Close to shopping, schools and medical services, it is ideally situated for privacy and seclusion but close enough for easy access to the Twin Cities.
