With its large sunroom that looks out to the rear gardens, formal living room with gas fireplace, and banquet size dining room, this home is truly the perfect place for entertaining. You’ll love the owners suite on the main level that has an oversized shower, soaking tub, and walk-in closet! There’s also a secondary bedroom on the main floor that boasts a fireplace and double closets. The kitchen is sure to be a chef’s dream. The center island offers plenty of space for cooking and entertaining guests, while built-in cabinets give you ample storage space, the corner cabinet gives you a place to display your favorite pieces. Stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry ensure that you’ll always have what you need at your fingertips. And if you need more space… there’s a butler’s pantry with desk area off the kitchen that makes it easy to find somewhere for your things when they’re not in use. Upstairs offers even more space for relaxation with 2 bedrooms, a bath, and a loft that will delight guests or family alike – and provide plenty of room for everyone to get some alone time or even catch up on some work! The amount of extra storage in this house will amaze you. And if all of this isn’t enough, there’s a detached garage with attic storage in the fenced back yard. Speaking of the back yard, you won’t believe you are on Main St when you step into this private one acre oasis. All just a short stroll from Historic Downtown Madison with eateries, boutiques, and antiques. Enjoy community events at Town Park, wine tasting events, or a quiet evening of alfresco dining.
