This updated C.1940 cottage is located just 3 miles from historic Madison, on 15 fenced acres with pecan trees, 3-stall horse barn, utility barn, riding ring, raised beds, and chicken coop. It’s rare to find a property where both the land and home have this much character.
The C.1940 cottage was expertly renovated in 2009, and has three bedrooms and three full baths in 2200sf. It’s the right blend of old and new - the vintage trim, gleaming wood floors and four fireplaces complement the updated kitchen and luxurious master bath, both with granite countertops. The foyer has a custom tile floor and opens to the classic center hallway. The living room is on the left, with the dining room just behind. Both rooms are a spacious 15x15, and feature gas fireplaces. The modern kitchen is located just beyond the dining room, and features country white cabinets with dark granite countertops and a stainless double sink. The pantry and laundry closet are just steps away. Typical for C.1900’s cottages, the main level bedrooms are aligned to the right of the center hall, and both have gas fireplaces. The master bedroom is tucked privately towards the back of the home, and has direct access to the side porch. The luxurious master bath is an unexpected delight, offering a jetted tub with tumbled marble inlay tile work, plus a large custom tiled shower with rainfall showerhead. The double vanity also has granite. The walk-in master closet is fitted with a custom shelf system. Upstairs is the third bedroom and full bath.
The home was completely remodeled in 2009, and features low maintenance hardi-siding. The roof, windows, HVAC, and hot water heaters were all replaced during the remodel.
This is a ruralist’s dream property - 15 acres of level land with about 8-10 acres of pasture, beautiful hardwoods, a home with character, plus two outbuildings. The homestead is protected with dog-safe fencing, and the back 13+ acres is fully fenced for horses and livestock. Near the home is a 20x50 cinderblock barn with metal roof that is currently used for equipment storage. There are multiple raised beds ready for you to grow healthy food. Further back on the land is a 3-stall horse barn with a pair of 12x12 stalls plus one 12x14 stall and a feed room. There are also two chicken coops attached to the barn. Bring your critters and start enjoying the good life!
