Overview

About the property

Newly remodeled one-story, 2-bedroom, 2-bath home in family-friendly community

Enjoy upscale comforts fit for a Gov in this charming, well-furnished, one-story, cottage-style home located 1+ block from Wisconsin's stately Executive Residence on Lake Mendota.

The small home has just undergone a major 6-month remodel inside and out and is now ready for guests! Find new bathrooms; an expanded and open kitchen-dining-living area with new stainless steel appliances, tile floors and backsplash, granite counter tops; refinished hardwood floors; first floor laundry and back entry; fresh paint; new deck and attached garage.

The south-facing kitchen, dining, and living room area is filled with natural daylight. There's seating for 6+, a 40" flat screen Sony TV, cable TV, Apple TV, DVD, and fast high speed Internet. Grind your coffee beans and prepare those fresh veggies that you've picked up at the Dane County Farmer's Market on Capitol Square in the well-equipped kitchen. There are two bedrooms - one with a king bed and one with two extra long twin beds, and a spacious walk-in closet. There are two full bathrooms - one with a walk-in shower, and one with a walk-in shower and whirlpool tub. Outside, enjoy a deck with new gas grill, table and seating for 6, with a south-southeast exposure.

All of this and more will await you at the end of the day, whether you're in town for business, health care, visiting family, or simply enjoying the best that Madison has to offer.

The cottage is conveniently located near the airport in the small, family-friendly community of Maple Bluff, a "hidden gem" that hugs Lake Mendota's eastern shore. Enjoy Fireman's Park and Playground that abuts the back of the property, Beach Park and Playground with its awesome panoramic views of the Capitol ~ an easy 3 block walk from the house, or any of the many other parks with playgrounds and walking and biking trails nearby.

The home nicely accommodates a family of four or two senior couples ~ up to a maximum of four (4) people (including children).

"Our cottage isn't the Governor's Mansion and our gardens aren't weed-free. But we think you'll find it to be a comfortable, family-friendly alternative to one of Madison's finer hotels."
