Home Zematt Lodge pays homage to the quaint town it was named after in the Swiss Alps. This sun-filled contemporary is tucked away on a wooded, private lot within a dead-end neighborhood. It is graciously laid out with 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and hardwood floors throughout. Cathedral ceilings with skylights and a modern aesthetic give this home a bright, airy essence. The kitchen is fully equipped with energy-efficient, stainless steel appliances (not pictured) and an open floor plan perfect for entertaining guests. Wake up in a spacious primary suite where quiet morning hours can be spent sipping some coffee or tea, swing in a hammock on a well-sized private deck, or sneak away in the evening to use the soaking tub with jacuzzi jets and easily roll into bed directly afterward. Stepping down into the finished basement, you'll find a bonus sleeping space equipped with a kitchenette, private entrance, and porch. With just over 1000 square feet, the ultra-easy addition of a door could make this a very comfortable accessory unit. Breathe easy as the home is equipped with a security system and wifi-enabled Nest doorbell.
Land The land around the home is beautifully blanketed by a luscious mix of deciduous trees and pines. Evenings are thoroughly enjoyed year-round grilling on one of the four decks, relaxing in the hot tub with a cocktail, or out by the stone firepit roasting marshmallows. On drab afternoons, curl up with a favorite book and listen to the rain on the cozy enclosed porch conveniently located off of the living room. The terra offers plenty of parking for any sort of large gathering. Thoughtfully planned, the main deck space duels as a carport for covered parking. The final deck space is accessible from the basement.
Use The home is currently a very successful short-term rental with great ratings, grossing an average annual income of around $75K. Low taxes, low utilities, and low maintenance costs make this home more than easy to handle! To make the transfer to the next steward of Zematt Lodge even more seamless, the current owner is offering for the furniture to be negotiated as part of the sale or purchased separately. UVH is able to also provide recommendations to local property management companies to make it a low-effort, fully turn-key experience!

Less than 5 minutes away to essentials and morning coffee at Milk Crate in Woodridge. Only 10 minutes away is the boutique town of Mountaindale where weekends are spent eating the most delicious, naturally fermented pizza (the Duck Hunt is a big fav!) and dancing the night away at fab disco parties at The Dale, rejuvenating Saturday morning at yoga class at Mountaindale Yoga + Wellness, and back at it again at the backyard creek-bar for coffee and drinks at High Voltage. You can pick up essentials for a charcuterie party at general store and wine shop, Forage + Gather on your way out!
