A Colonial Gem in Great Neighborhood. This house has it all and then some! Nicely landscaped and painted a soothing shade of moss green with white trim and black shutters, this house exudes a soothing charm at first sight. Follow the paving stone path to an enclosed portico, and enter a cheery vestibule with a black and white checkered floor and freshly painted bright yellow walls. An open, airy floor plan features an uninterrupted flow of light, warm walnut colored hardwood floors throughout, sumptuous moldings and wood burning fireplace.

The center hall offers a view straight ahead into the kitchen, a wood spindled and beautiful carved walnut banistered staircase off to the left and the living room off to the right. This charming living room is graced with thick crown and dentil moldings, a fireplace with a white mantel and brick and tile surround. A doorway on the right gives entrance to a private office space with built-in bookcases, where you can work from home or utilize as a convenient play area. Straight ahead are the family and dining areas with charming built-in bookcases and an overhead bookshelf for decorative display. The cheery kitchen has ample cabinet and drawer space, updated stainless steel appliances and a breakfast nook that leads to a newly renovated powder room. A doorway to a covered patio for outdoor dining and relaxing is a bonus rain or shine and opens to a fenced yard with patio area.

Inside, climb the staircase with white risers and walnut steps to the second floor landing. Here you will find three generously proportioned bedrooms with lots of light and closet space. A full bath with a shower over tub serves these rooms. Down the hall is the master bedroom and bath that offers total privacy. You’ll love beginning your day in this fabulous recently remodeled bathroom with white wainscoting, creamy porcelain modern sink with a bottom storage shelf and gorgeous heated slate tile floors that continue into the gleaming glass enclosed shower stall. A black framed mirror and medicine cabinet add contrast and sophistication. The master bedroom is brightly lit by windows on two sides, is luxuriously proportioned and offers a wall length double closet.

And there’s more! Take the stairs up another level and enter the versatile and bright finished attic. High dormer ceiling provides great angles that define this fabulous space outfitted with numerous closets and storage nooks. Let your imagination dictate its function – use this room as your library, guest room, music room, gym or den. Additionally, the partially finished large basement is immaculate and has recessed fluorescent lighting and lots of open space. There is an abundance of closet and storage space and a large laundry area.

With its top notch schools and access to world class shopping and restaurants as well public transportation into nearby Manhattan, 36 Madison Street is the perfect place to call home.
