Yes a new home in one of the classic sought after neighborhoods in Madison. This home was built in 2015 after tearing down the home that was on this lot. However you would never know. It has all the classic looks this neighborhood is known for but none of the headaches that sometimes come with an older home. Beautiful open space with sun shining in from the abundant windows. The lower level is one big room currently used for an in home business, it would make an amazing play space for kids or add a 5th bedroom and bath. The attic space was designed to finish some day to add even more square footage. It also has a 2 car garage!
