River’s End Gallery   Kristy Goggio is an accomplished Wisconsin artist whose work is best known for its eccentric and other worldly qualities. While covering a broad range of subject matter and styles throughout her, her recent work features young female characters along with iconic symbols such as birds, flowers, and bees. Adorned with detailed clothing reminiscent of the Renaissance style, her female characters are exotic and mysterious, each telling a different story. The camera cannot capture the full beauty of her pieces as they often utilize metallic paints that glimmer and sparkle as light strikes the surface.

The great room has trademarks you’ll find throughout the home: It’s fieldstone fireplace and antique Pennsylvania barn wood beams. The vista from the dining room is unbelievable. You will feel as if you are on the bow of a ship overlooking the water as you dine; Pine Lake sparkles below with its quaint, private island in full view. An adjacent stone patio is a wonderful place to enjoy your morning coffee. Take a sip, listen to the birds and look out at sunlight dancing like crystals on the lake top. One of the treasures of this home is its quaint turret. In olden times, a turret or tower was built as a lookout. It’s no different today. The turret is strategically placed on the back of the home for a panoramic view of Pine Lake and the surrounding area. The turret on the main floor is screened-in to create a fantastic, circular porch. Unwind among the treetops with a glass of wine and a good book.

Villa

ROMANTIC

ON A BOAT TOUR of Oconomowoc Lake, there

are several spectacular homes, but a few stand out even amongst those. 4545 Hewitt’s Point Road is a 12,212-square-feet. Mediterranean villa that sits prominently above the lake on Hewitt’s Point. Its stucco exterior, arched windows and porticos along with its characteristic tiled roof are hard to miss and are beautifully complimented by mature trees and a lush, manicured landscape. The home was built in 1916 by the owner of “The Western Clock Company” (“Westclox”) which was known for its “Big Ben” alarm clocks. It was sold to Alexander Uhrig, a poet and heir to what would later become the “Milwaukee If you would like more information on this property, contact Jon Spheeris at Coldwell Banker Elite® at 262-490-5558.
