About Joan Raymond

My grandparents owned a farm very close to The Galena Territory where I spent every Sunday, as well as many weeks in the summer as a child. I have very fond memories of the area! Even though I live in Colorado, we come to Galena as often as we can. All of my family still lives throughout the tri-state area.

Joan Raymond purchased this house in 2013

Why Joan Raymond chose Galena

We walked into this house and were impressed with every aspect of it, not to mention the incredible Burr oak tree in the back yard which was almost reason enough to buy the property. My family and I have rented houses through VRBO and Home Away all over the world and have become very picky about what we expect and we knew that this house had it!!

What makes this house unique

The house was thoughtfully designed for comfort, flow and entertaining. Every room has a great view. You feel like you are in a treehouse. The open feel of the home is accentuated with a different ceiling in each room. The center marble island in the kitchen evolves into the gathering place. The hickory floor, knotty alder woodwork, the warm glow of a fireplace and the sound of wildlife makes this a perfect destination getaway for corporations, family or friends.

Beautiful and Luxurious Party Mansion in the Galena Territory

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights over New Years with eight of our best friends and had just a lovely time. The house is very large and inviting and chock full of all possible amenities you could want for entertainment and enjoyment. We had a lovely NYE dinner and partied until the wee houses of the night. Then a full day of football and lounging in the comfortable living area and the basement party pit. Bedrooms and baths are comfortable and nicely appointed and the master suite on the main floor is amazing. Had a grand old time and we're already planning for next year. 2 wine glasses were the only casualties (dishwasher) of the weekend. Sorry about that.

Beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean with all the amenities needed for a great stay in Galena. The bedrooms were all nicely finished with comfortable beds. This is our second stay at this property and will come again as long as the property stays nicely taken care of. Which I am sure will happen.

Stunning home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 couples enjoyed a fun, relaxing long weekend. This home is the perfect getaway retreat with every amenity imaginable. Beautifully decorated with high end furnishings and attention to detail. We loved the lower level recreation area, the screen porch, bocce court and hot tub! Joan was fantastic to work with. Thank you for sharing your lovely home in historic Galena!
