From the Zillow listing:


This magnificent Georgian Home will take you back to a bygone era. It has hardwood floors throughout the home.  As you walk up to this beautiful home you will notice the unique curved Portico above the front entrance. The sidelights of the front door let in a lot of extra light into the foyer. As you enter you will see the grand staircase and beautiful crystal chandelier. To your right is the formal living room with fireplace, built-in cabinet and a doorway leading to the side porch. On the left of the foyer is a second parlor or family room that has the entrance to the huge sunroom. The next room is the dining room with a lovely tin ceiling and built-in china closet. The kitchen, pantry, and laundry finish off the original floor space of the main house.  Beyond the kitchen, there is a large addition to be used originally as a master bedroom suite, but could easily be used as the new family room. As you go up the main staircase you can feel the wear in the wooden steps.  When you get to the top of the stairs you can look out the windows to the water views of the Madison Bay. There you find a  full bath and 4 bedrooms. The rooms are bright and cheery with all the natural light from the large oversized windows.  Outside there is an oversized detached 2 car garage that offers a lot of storage. You will certainly enjoy the large yards for all your family gatherings.  This home is in walking distance to the town of Madison that offers boat docks and boat launching.
