A dramatically sloped roof, stone details, colonial windows, and a wild, colorful front garden make this home feel like it belongs in the English countryside, only much closer to Madison Park Beach.
The L-shaped house cradles a broad, stone back porch with almost a courtyard feel. French doors and dramatically large windows give the living area an airy transition to the outdoors. (And there’s built-in firewood storage—how cute is that?)
Light remodeling has only brightened up the home, taking the original shape of the home’s architecture and adding nice, open touches, like open kitchen shelving or lit nooks for displaying art.
Like the best old houses, it’s full of little built-in surprises, like a peaceful reading nook in the largest bedroom, next to a small bedroom fireplace.
The home is tucked away in the trees, but close enough to city amenities. It’s the best of a lot of worlds.
