Cobblestone Builders’ New Condominiums in Jackson, WI
My husband and I are reaching retirement age and have begun looking for a smaller house to “downsize” our life. Since we won’t have to worry about traffic or getting to work on time, my sweet hubby has agreed to indulge my desire to live out in the country. “Goodbye city life!”
Recently, the weather was sunny and warm-ish, so we decided to take a drive. We didn’t plan where to go, we just buckled up and headed up Hwy 41/45. When the highways diverged, my husband and I decided to follow 45N and came upon the village of Jackson.
LIving in Jackson Wisconsin
Jackson is located in Washington County, in southeastern Wisconsin, about 45 minutes from Milwaukee to the northwest. About 7,000 people are living within the village limits. Jackson has a delightful small-town feel, but because it’s close to Milwaukee and Madison, there are big-city amenities within an hour’s drive.
Jackson is mostly agricultural with softly rolling farmland and a few subdivisions and residences scattered around. The lush Jackson Marsh and Wildlife Refuge is also nearby, on County Hwy G. Also, I was excited to discover several hiking trails, parks with playground equipment, and a few baseball diamonds. There is a recreation center that’s used for the Boy Scouts’ Klondike Derby, 4-H meetings, 4th of July celebrations, and more. I was also told that in the summer, outdoor movies are offered on the grounds. Small town living at its finest!
New Construction in Jackson WI
As we continued to explore this amazing village (and fall in love with it), we came across some new construction in Cobblestone Trails. Since my husband and I have been talking about downsizing, we decided to stop and look. It was perfect!
Recently completed, The Cherrywood I is the last condo available in this subdivision. I was happy to see that it was a lovely ranch home with two bedrooms and two full baths. No more running up and down stairs! As we stepped into the entryway and walked into the great room, I looked up at the 13-foot tray ceiling. Wow! The high ceiling plus the tons of sunlight shining through the windows made this area look and feel twice its size.
I was excited when I noticed a cozy fireplace with slate stone – at the top of my list of “must haves” and always important for those long, cold Wisconsin winters. The stone matched the front of the kitchen peninsula, tying the décor of the two rooms together.
The kitchen has a raised eating area (perfect for feeding our grandchildren) and a center island. The kitchen also has a pantry with great storage, beautiful quartz countertops, and oak stained Shaker-style cabinetry, along with a spacious dining area nearby.
What can I say about the master bedroom suite, except “remarkable.” It was as if the architect and builder were thinking of us when they built it. The airy bedroom has a tray ceiling (just like the great room) with plenty of space for a king-size bed. In the master bath, there’s a roomy, no-step tiled walk-in shower, with a bench and both a rain showerhead and hand-held sprayer. Plus, a walk-in closet!
But Wait, There’s More! There are an additional bedroom and bathroom, a two-car garage, and a nice sized yard.
The best part? An unfinished basement with an egress window and rough plumbing for a future bathroom. I’m pretty sure we’d use the extra space for an office or turn it into another bedroom for when our kids and grandchildren come to visit. Or maybe both!
