Classic style is obvious throughout this cozy dutch colonial in the heart of Madison’s sizzling Emerson East neighborhood. An afternoon with a book beckons in the large living room flooded with sunlight from window-filled walls. The updated, efficient kitchen will produce dinner parties to remember, shared in the stylish formal dining room.
Newly finished floors gleam throughout, while the refinished staircase leads to the master bedroom, featuring multiple closets and dark hardwood. A second bedroom, perfect for a child or to turn into your own small library or office, looks out on one of the home’s most unique features; the majestic, soaring oak tree. Ever dreamed of your own treehouse getaway amongst the birds and branches? This arboreal giant is ready to help you make that dream a reality.
Or let it shade you and your guests on steamy summer afternoons as you entertain on your extra large deck, featuring multiple entrances to the house and a built in slide (originally intended for children, but who are we to tell you how to enjoy your house?). East facing, you can enjoy your morning coffee in dappled sunlight while overlooking your easily cared for city yard filled with perennials, including clematis, bee balm, periwinkle, and bleeding hearts.
