Situated on 3.5+/- acres, this historic home was built by John W. Starke in the 1830s and
features an L-shaped floor plan with three rooms upstairs and downstairs. There were two sets
of stairs, a hipped roof and exterior end chimneys. A low brick fence bisected by a
basket weave-patterned brick walkway prefaces this enchanting home with incredible curb
appeal. A covered front porch with a porch swing is perfect for rocking chairs and enjoying a
lazy afternoon. The wide front door opens into the gracious foyer where heart pine floors and
painted wood walls welcome. Modern updates pair beautifully with the period details
throughout the home. The au courant kitchen impresses with an expansive island featuring a
waterfall countertop, white cabinets with gold hardware, a La Cornue gas stove with a pot-filler
above, marble countertops and backsplash, a fireplace, wet bar and a casual dining area. A
sunny sitting room off the kitchen is perfect for watching TV or gazing out the windows and
French doors to the 200-year-old live oak that casts dappled light across the backyard. An
additional sitting room off the kitchen is perfect for an office and features perimeter lighting, an
original fireplace and heart pine floors. Unwind in the tranquil master suite, which boasts a
fireplace, soft neutral paint and a luxurious master bathroom with a freestanding soaking
bathtub, his and her vanities, plantation shutters, extensive built-ins, a marble shower and a tin
ceiling. The upstairs boasts original wood floors, three bedrooms, a gorgeous marble bathroom
and an additional bathroom.
A convenient mudroom with built-in cabinets for storage, plantation shutters and beautiful
original hardware on the oversized door opens onto a charming side porch. A brick walkway off
the porch is surrounded by a lush garden and leads to the three-car garage, which features a
covered outdoor living area with a fireplace and wiring for a TV, perfect for watching fall
football. The outdoor entertaining areas impress with a fire pit on the brick patio, a covered
pavilion with bar-top seating and an outdoor kitchen and a serene pool with a spa and a diving
board. This incredible outdoor living area overlooks the 3.5+/- verdant acres with large swaths
of manicured lawns. Overnight guests will love the converted barn that is now a stunning guest
home. Enjoy a gambrel roofline with wooden support beams in the living room and a floor-to-ceiling rock fireplace. The full-size kitchen includes a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances,
beautiful cabinetry and granite and wood countertops. A spacious bedroom with a cathedral
ceiling and bathroom with a walk-in shower complete this sizable guest retreat. Additional
details include two lighted tennis courts, a gardening shed, designer lighting, an updated half
bathroom on the main and more. Ideally located just minutes from downtown Madison, you
can leave the car at home and enjoy a slower pace of life in this captivating and historic home.
