    We Give a Glowing Review to Five Star Farm in Wisconsin


    When you think of the quintessential Midwestern farmstead, Wisconsin’s lush countryside springs to mind. The landscape of the Badger State is dotted with farms and barns as you make your way out of the metro areas.

    However, all farmsteads are not created equal. That’s what makes this $2.15 million listing—a massive 7,400-square-foot converted barn alongside an old farmhouse on 40 acres near Walworth—so intriguing.

    The highlight of this compound is the glam farmhouse. It’s actually a century-old barn that was dismantled in another Wisconsin town (about 240 miles away) and reassembled here. With high ceilings and an abundance of interior living space, it’s ideal for an open layout concept.

    Called Five Star Farm, the property offers options. There’s the original farmhouse, which was built on-site in 1930 and visible from the road. With four bedrooms, it could be used as a caretaker’s cottage or for rental income.

    But hold your applause until you lay eyes on the converted barn in the back of the farmhouse. Sporting a shabby chic interior (check out those distressed turquoise cabinets in the kitchen!) along with old-growth timber beams, the retrofitted seven-bedroom, 4.5-bath farmhouse is an entertainer’s dream. A gorgeous stone fireplace in the living room extends all the way to the ceiling.

    Outfitted with crystal chandeliers and Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, the kitchen connects to the living room in this open layout. A 15-seat home theater is perfect for hosting sports-viewing events, and the two bunk rooms appeal to nieces, nephews, or grandchildren.

    There’s enough room for 18 people to eat comfortably in the dining space (hello, Thanksgiving?), and even more if you include the silo’s screened sunroom.

    Walworth sits just over the Illinois state line. The popular resort town of Lake Geneva is just a 20-minute drive away, and the big city of Chicago sits only two hours from the farm. The property sits along the shores of the 200-acre Lake Petite and offers strong weekend getaway vibes.

    The property is listed with David Curry of Geneva Lakefront Realty.
