Cozy Atmosphere with Alluring Charm....

You’re sure to love this charming Cape Cod, with its homey feel, wood floors, updated kitchen, proximity to downtown, coveted schools, located within an active and vibrant neighborhood.    

The living room is accentuated by a beautiful fireplace, creating a cozy atmosphere with alluring charm. With the fall season just around the corner, it’s nice to know that the wood burning  fireplace can help “heat the whole house”, according to the sellers. The living room also features a large opening allowing views from the kitchen and dining rooms. This is great for those who want to keep an eye on their children, pets or guests!    

You’re sure to love cooking in this updated kitchen, and you may even enjoy rinsing dishes in the large farm sink. Updates include a brand new gas range (2018), refrigerator (2018), hood fan (2018), dishwasher, farm sink and faucet, and ample cabinetry.

The main bath has also recently been updated (vanity, mirror, shower-head) while remaining true to the original character.

Both bedrooms upstairs are generous in size and the master (19’x14’) includes a deep closet. While quaint, you’re sure to appreciate having a half bath upstairs. Don’t miss the storage closet behind the bathroom door.

With all the recent flooding in Madison, put your mind at ease because this basement includes both a sump pump and drain tile, even though it has not seen any water from the recent rains. This makes for a great area to potentially finish off or a playroom for the kids.

The fenced in yard boasts a deck, in-ground sand box, and raised beds (currently residing are pumpkins and tomatoes).


The sellers are sad to leave the neighborhood and I don’t blame them!  The popular Franklin Elementary School is just blocks away, as is Monona Bay (great for fishing), Goodman Pool (Madison’s first municipal swimming pool complete with two waterslides), Lakeside Coffee, Olin Park (holds various festivals and events), Bernie's Beach, Coliseum Bar, and The Wonder Bar.

Hop on your bike or take a short drive to: the Alliant Energy Center, and Veteran's Memorial Coliseum, The Monona Terrace, Sardine, The Studio, Willy Street.

Park Street continues to undergo a massive face lift with expanded medical facilities, new apartment buildings, shops, restaurants and bars, adding to the already popular mix of hotspots. Enjoy all Park Street has to offer: Copps Grocery, Ichiban Sichuan, Bernie's Rock Shop, Barriques, Edo Japanese,The Mason Lounge, and a personal fav, Taqueria Guadalajara. I could go on and on in regards to what is in proximity to this amazing location.
