Krueger’s Lake Estate is a fantastic opportunity to own a secluded country retreat with a private lake. This magnificent property features a cabin “man cave” right on the water, a beautifully appointed Guest house, and a gorgeous Craftsman style 4,118 sq ft custom built home, all on 15 acres in a peaceful, scenic area just 5 miles east of Sidney, Nebraska.
The main house features traditional Craftsman architecture, with a low gabled roof and wide overhanging unenclosed eaves with decorative supports. The back porch is expansive, accessible from different areas of the house, and plenty large for entertaining a large group, but with a cozy, intimate appeal. There are both open and screened in areas on the porch, with the open area featuring a built in propane fire pit. The view from this porch and the many large windows is of the lake, which, protected from wind and other turbulence, typically mirrors the sky and surrounding trees. Mature trees surround the home, making the porch and yard shady and cool even on the hottest summer days. Migrating geese and ducks fill this 20 acre lake in the fall and winter, making for an interesting and ever changing view in all seasons.
The interior of the home is filled with wonderful Arts and Crafts design elements that make this home unique. More formal elements are intermixed with more casual, rustic details creating an elegant space that is still relaxed and comfortable. The kitchen is the heart of the home, featuring granite counter tops, a large center island, stainless steel appliances and knotty alder cabinetry. The great room has soaring, rustic wood-planked ceilings with darker, polished, cathedral style wood arches. The differing wood elements, mixed with stone elements, wood and tile floors blends many warm colors and textures harmoniously together for a slightly eclectic and stylish interior that would suit many tastes. All finishes and fixtures throughout the house are styled appropriately for the home and are of the highest quality. The paned windows throughout are large, letting a great deal of natural light into the living spaces. The upstairs bedrooms feature charming dormers. There is a casual living space on the second floor with a built-in granite wet bar, perfect for those football game gatherings.
To the east of the main house is the Guest House, which was the original farmhouse on the property, but it has been completely remodeled top to bottom, while maintaining the original charm. This 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom home has tasteful, traditional elements that will make your guests feel that they are staying in a lovely, newer home, not just a spare cabin. The “man cave” cabin is on the west side of the main house, just a few feet from the water’s edge. This former Pony Express station is also beautifully remodeled, intended to have a rustic, masculine appeal. The ceiling is lined with corrugated aluminum siding, and reclaimed bar wood accents adorn the entire 1 bedroom, one bath cabin. The rustic front porch has cheerful red trim accents, and is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a steaming cup of coffee while you watch the sun rise over the lake. A small fishing dock extends over the water from the front porch, where several mature trees overhang, making a natural blue gill or crappie hot spot.
This estate is ideal for any dog lover or breeder. A 60’ x 40’ insulated, heated and air-conditioned building houses a 38’ x 12’ kennel area which leads into ten individual 20’ indoor/outdoor dog runs. If you are more of a horse person than a dog person, there are large paddocks fenced separately that are intended for the dogs, but would serve just as well as horse paddocks.
There is also a 50’ x 30’ shop that is insulated with radiant heating, and a motor home building that is 50’ x 20’, with a 17’ high ceiling. The 20’ x 13’ well house features an ultra violet water purifier.
The peaceful, quiet solitude at this magnificent estate must be experienced to truly appreciate. The sound of the wind rustling the cottonwood leaves and the many birds are the only sounds you hear. So private and secluded, and yet so close to all the conveniences of town, this would be an amazing place to call home.
