A broad gable front commands the facade of this 1 ½ story cottage. Bright white trim highlights the inviting porch set beneath a dropped roof. Years in the making, the lovely English garden buzzes and blooms, ready to welcome home a new owner. The simplicity of the National Folk style allows the natural beauty of the professional landscaping to shine. A six-foot fence shrouds the backyard for a private oasis just a quarter-mile from Downtown Dodgeville.
The front door opens to the tiled foyer at the stair landing. The spacious, versatile living room showcases beautifully refinished hardwood gleaming beneath abundant natural light. Chartreuse cabinets breathe life into a neutral kitchen updated with newer appliances and countertops. Custom recessed lighting with fiery stained glass complements the bold pops of color. A breakfast bar straddles the kitchen and dining room to add work space and casual seating. The mudroom with main-floor laundry opens to the low-maintenance entertaining deck and spacious one-car garage/shop. Lending a formal flair to the semi-open dining room, pointed Tudor arches lead to the living room and main-floor bedroom. Tucked away near the updated full bath, this private bedroom with ample closet space would be great as a primary suite or accessible guest room.
Two-toned walls climb to the upper half-story, where the eastern dormer wakes each bedroom with gentle morning light. Roomy closets beneath the eaves optimize a limited footprint. The fully updated hall bath includes a modern surround of white subway tiles for the original cast iron tub. Last but not least (well, maybe) is the windowless attic room hugged by sloping ceilings. This cozy nook is the perfect place to curl up with a book, work from home, or house a college student on a twin bed for the holidays.
Other updates include roof (2008), garage roof (2013), gutters (2010), deck (2008), furnace (2009), windows (2008), 3+ car concrete drive (2018), external paint (2021), and many more.
With an eclectic array of new and original hardware, mismatched doorknobs, and even a skeleton key or two, this circa 1936 home is full of surprises and a few fun mysteries. Call or text Torre today to see it in full bloom! (608) 574 6627
