House in Madison, USA

We live in a contemporary four-bedroom home in the woods with extensive gardens. We are 15 minutes from Capital Square in Madison. The Capitol Square is the heart and soul of downtown Madison in the summer with an art fair, concerts, festivals, races and the largest only-producer Farmer’s Market in the country. Lake Mendota and Lake Monona to the north and south of the isthmus offer all many opportunities to enjoy water sports and lake cruises. While here you can visit museums, Olbrich Gardens, Vilas Zoo, Monona Terrace, and EPIC’s high tech campus.

Wisconsin was the 30th state to enter the union in 1884. Its name in Algonquin means “long river” or in Chippewa “gathering of the waters.” Its capitol, Madison, is the only capitol city in the U.S. located on an isthmus between two beautiful lakes and home to a world-class public research university, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Madison, Wisconsin consistently ranks as a top community in which to live, work, play, and raise a family. It is currently #1 in top 100 places to live, Livability.com and rate #6 as bike-friendly city by Bicycling Magazine. Within 1/4 mile of our home are four major off-street bike paths, Southwest trail ~ 15 miles, Capital City trail ~15 miles, Badger State trail to Illinois -60 miles, and the Military Ridge State Trail ~45 miles. Less than an hour from Madison is Mineral Point where Wisconsin began when the Cornish arrived to mine lead; Wisconsin Dells on the Wisconsin River; Baraboo, the only place in the world where you can see all 15 species of cranes and revisit going to the circus; or visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin in Spring Green.
