A Madison Gem!
Location, location. This Madison Shoreline gem is the ideal summer beach house, as well as a snug, energy-efficient year-round home. Located on a quiet side street, it is just steps to East Wharf beach and a short walk to the town center. Rebuilt from the ground up in 2014, it has all the modern features of new construction while keeping the charm of the original 1930 cottage. The first level has 9-ft ceilings and flows nicely from the front entrance/sun room to the living room, accented with a no-fuss, gas fireplace, to the open dining area. The kitchen features stainless appliances and plenty of storage. Upstairs, the master bedroom suite, with views of LI Sound and the salt marsh, includes a walk-in closet, an oversize tiled shower, adjoining laundry room and coffee nook. The other two bedrooms share a full bath. The finished 3rd-floor bonus room, with its own balcony, is the ideal space for extra guests, a playroom/den or a home office—and what views! Even with close proximity to the beach, this wood-shingled home with high-impact windows meets all FEMA requirements -- no flood insurance necessary. Other smart touches include central AC, a 2-zone heat pump system with remote-control thermostats, city water, alarm system, a 4-ft crawl space for dry storage, and an 8x12 shed. This turn-key home means you can truly enjoy this popular vacation area, including the outdoor shower after a day at the beach.
