We are extremely pleased to be the second owners of our 1955 Cape Cod style home, built by John Wejten for Lester and Betty Rind. Ron and Vicki have totally renovated the home: adding storage areas, widening doorways (new oak doors and woodwork), completely refreshing the kitchen and bath, and laying tile – to name a few.
When the interior was completed and move-in ready, Ron took his talents and added on his favorite segment: a 24′ x 36′ garage for his woodshop and to house his two vintage cars. in their 58 years of marriage, they have acquired and restored family heirlooms and antique wicker pieces. The antiques are blended with today’s furnishings, including items from Amana.
Two special items include a Christmas pyramid created by their daughter’s father-in-law, Ray Berger, and a tree with tin decorations to honor friend Bill Metz, the Tinsmith. Unique lace accents adorn windows throughout the house. The home is doecrated inside and out for Christmas, plus an extra surprise in the garage!
The Conquest home is a former kitchen house and residence of the communal era. This expansive home sits in the heart of Main Amana where The Rusty Tractor currently occupies the sandstone portion, with a personal residence in the remainder. The property has undergone extensive renovations in the last four years. Though renovations required many modern updates, if you look closely, you will see original late 1800s details throughout the home. Keeping true to its original purpose, the kitchen is a cook’s delight with a massive island and hidden walk-in pantry. The bedrooms are designed with comfortable seating areas and en suites. Dressed for Christmas with nearly a dozen trees, this home brings the season alive with warmth, charm, and a fair bit of the owners’ southern hospitality.
3807 F Street is a wonderful family home that was built in 1991. It features four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Its spacious living room, great room, and office feature high ceilings and custom woodwork that give this home its Amana charm. With a view of the Lily Lake and one of the many Amana Society farm fields, the back deck is a valued spot where many meals and get-togethers are held. This house has undergone widespread renovations over the past two years including the kitchen, master bathroom, and exterior.
The family enjoys celebrating all the holidays, especially Christmas, so this home has been decorated in every room including six Christmas trees and many custom decorations. The exterior also features many Christmas lights.
