One of Jenifer Street's vintage gems!
Step off the Metro and immediately onto the porch of this classic home, currently a high-rent-potential two unit that has been owner-occupied for the last 8 decades (!) and could easily be converted back to a single family home. Your beautiful screened-in sun porch has views of historic Jenifer street running parallel to iconic Willy Street (Williamson). This neighborhood is unrivaled in Madison, WI, and nationally ranked "one of the ten great neighborhoods in the U.S." You'll be steps from the Willy Street Coop, a few blocks from Lake Monona, and two blocks downhill lies the heart of The Capitol City Bike Path. Second story views of Madison's first official park, Orton Park. Elementary and secondary schools are a short three block walk down Jenifer street. The Yahara River and public lake access for fishing, kayaking, and paddleboarding or canoeing are a short walk away. This neighborhood has a long history of summer festivals, pop-up markets, and concerts, all while maintaining a quiet and respectful community of neighbors.
Step into a foyer that leads:
1. Down the hall to a functional concrete basement/cellar with plenty of storage space and included new washer and dryer.
2. To the left to enter the first floor that has been a one bedroom high-rent-potential apartment
3. Up the sturdy, wooden staircase to the second floor of the multi-family home.
There are two(!) eat-in kitchens, a dining room, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, two family rooms/sitting rooms, ample closets, and the cutest loft space in the highest point of the house with a window and space for a home office.
