This adorable colonial located near the end of a picturesque tree lined cul de sac, is just minutes to Madison's quaint downtown, schools, beaches, and Bauer Park (offering community gardens, educational classes, fishing ponds). With CT State Forest trail access just feet away, and CT State Forest behind the house, the setting is quiet and peaceful. The house offers a recently renovated eat in kitchen complete with soft close cabinets, granite counters, gas cooktop, and stainless appliances; updated bathrooms; refinished hardwood flooring; central air; and crown molding in both the dining room and living room. The upper level consists of 4 bedrooms and a generously sized, recently remodeled, hall bath. The finished lower level has both heat and central air, and adds an additional 539 square feet of living space; including a recreation area, office space, and full bath. The level and private backyard is enhanced by a shed complete with heat, electricity and cable allowing for many possible uses. The outdoor shower has both hot and cold water ~ perfect place to wash off the sand after a day at one of Madison's beautiful beaches! Pets considered on a case by case basis.
