100 year old Arts& Crafts house on Madison's near west side neighborhood, 3 blocks to UW hospital and short walk to UW campus. Spacious, bright and private entire second floor master bedroom (1000 square ft) w/ king bed, south facing deck and cozy living space, 12x 12 full bathroom, w/ jacuzzi tub, walk in closet, laundry.

Der Wohnraum

In 1998 we added 1000 square feet to the house creating an entire second floor master bedroom and bathroom addition. This additions features two large dormers, a south facing one that leads through patio doors to a 12x 8 sun deck and another north facing dormer which houses the 12x12 master bathroom.

This master bedroom space offers open air living and at the same time is quite cozy. There are ten true divided light windows opening you to all four directions. In warm months the air flows though so wonderfully it feels like a tree house. In the winter months, the low sunlight pours through the skylights and the sun filters through the established old growth trees to charm the room. In any season it is a great place to restore, stretch out, study.

For comfort there is a sitting area with a two small scale cushy chairs and a loveseat, a small desk with printer and an additional bureau with mirror. The south facing deck also had comfortable patio couch and chair with lots of full sun plants.

The bed is a very comfortable medium to firm king bed with a featherbed, and down comforter w/ duvet and coverlet, down pillows and quality linens.

There is a large oval tub w/jets for soaking, walk in tiled shower, double sinks, 6 foot mirror. The walk in closet has twelve drawers and a hanging area, also a second full size stackable laundry.

There are 12 steps to get to second floor and along the way we created a built in loft above one of the first floor bedrooms. This is an extra room we use as a sleeping nook under the skylight, it has a full futon.
The first floor has a living room, dining room and kitchen, front porch and back deck and patio are common areas. Three bedrooms and a full bathroom also on the first floor.

If you are renting the master bedroom you are NOT renting the entire house which means another kind, responsible low foot print trustworthy person is living on the first floor and sharing the common spaces.

Details will be specific to each rental. please inquire.

The large spacious fully equipped kitchen has a sunny south facing eating area with a round 100 year old oak table looking out a six foot window to the garden. The new kitchen cabinets were custom built and stained to match the exact dimensions of the original oak built-in cabinets throughout the house. Under cabinet lights are LED and each have their own switch, the main switch is in the far left corner. The countertops are black/green soapstone, There is a five burner gas Dacor stove /oven with new downdraft extractor for ventilation. This downdraft system raises only when the turned on. Guests need to make sure nothing is obstructing its way! There is new Bosch dishwasher. The fridge is older but works great and is very spacious!

Our living room has a nice fireplace and a lot of cushy textiles for you to sink into. The front three season porch is a sweet place to finish out the day (in the warm months) lounging on the cushioned old wicker set or in the hammock. In the winter we stack our wood on the porch to stoke the fireplace.

During the summer you can make yourself at home in the garden . We built two decks and a brick patio, a rectangular table that sits 6-8 and comfortable patio furniture on the lower brick patio. There are also plenty of inviting places in the garden to sit and sink into conversation, a book, a nap, tea, wine...

If you run, we are eight blocks from Lake Mendota and Picnic Point and Whole Foods. Going West one mile you will find Sundance Theaters, and shopping. Madison is home to Willy Street Food Coop which is a drive of ten minutes but Regent Street Coop is just a five block walk.

Madison is a great town especially if you are in walking distance to the lakes and all the great neighborhoods. We are, 5-10 blocks form Regent/Monroe St, where you will find many locally owned and operated small businesses, great restaurants and coffee shops.

We are located in the oldest residential neighborhood on the near west side of Madison, 6 blocks to UW Hospital, 12 blocks to UW, 18 blocks to downtown, 10 blocks to Lake Wingra where I have a boat membership and you can be my guest in the summer months. Vilas Park, the zoo and the Arboretum are a mile away and a nice walk through safe and friendly residential neighborhoods.

You will love the beautiful grounds, the lovely gardens and great number of birds on this property. The interior was spacious and well furnished with everything you need. The wide double door opening to a balcony area has a terrific view of the lovely property.

Kathleen ws a great host and made us feel very welcome. Great location close enough to Camp Randall to walk, and also very near a new development with a few restaurants and a cool coffee shop.

I had a fantastic stay in Kathleen's Master bedroom. I stayed for approx. 20 nights and didn't have a single issue. The bed was outstanding from a comfort and size standpoint. I slept so well in this room as it really felt like home. Having a private large bathroom with washer and dryer included was extremely convenient! I spent so much time on the private outdoor patio that overlooked the backyard which was so refreshing. Kathleen is such a awesome host and I really appreciate everything she did to make my stay so wonderful!

This master bedroom is a spacious one of a kind, elegant but comfortable haven! The King bed was amazingly deluxe and comfy, my back felt wonderful in the mornings as I had a very good nights' sleep. I loved all the soft touches and conveniences including the lavender hand cream she left for me. The spacious bathroom has a jacuzzi which was exactly what the doctor ordered, it was delightful. I loved the full laundry option even though I didn't really need to use it. It rained half of my stay so I enjoyed the open patio doors to the sun deck and the floor to ceiling windows and skylights, it made for a nice retreat while there. When I wanted to cozy up I pulled the velvet ivory curtains and i felt quite snug. If there was a kitchen in the room I probably would never have left, but it is on the first floor and has everything for cooking including a gas stove which was a treat. The earthy craft feel of the kitchen with the soapstone countertops and farm sink made me want to call all my friends for a visit. Kathleen was super friendly, warm and easy going we did share tea and a quick breakfast. Thank you for a short but very sweet stay.

I was welcomed very warmly by Kathleen's daughter Ava and the two other guests in the house. They invited me to join in on activities they had planned (which was super nice and fun), but they had no problems keeping to themselves when they (or I) felt like doing so. While I was there, there were 4 dogs and a cat in the house, who loved to give you all the attention you could ever need. Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to meet Kathleen, as I was a guest in her whole second floor realm, but she was very warm and giving in all our communications, and Ava was very helpful at any time, too. A minor downside of the room is that there is no door separating it from the rest of the house. And even though everybody (except some of the dogs and the cat) was respectful not to come upstairs when I was there, there's also nothing to stop sounds (movies) and other noises (dogs..). Since I wake up easily, I slept with earplugs most of the time. Another thing that would wake me up in summer, is the fact that not every windows has curtains (the essential ones do), and the sun really lights up the room beautifully in the morning... Then more practically: the house is located within a good range of several bus stops and has free parking in the street, if you manage to remember the alternate parking. Even in winter, there were a lot of cyclists, so I bet it's wonderful biking there in summer. If you like walking a lot, you can reach the center of town in about 40 minutes, and the mall in the other direction, too. Given that dogs have been living in this house for a long time, it's not particularly clean, and if you're not used to living with dogs, you have to get used to their begging manners.

Kathleen was wonderful especially considering I was stuck at the DAL airport for an entire day on a Friday and did not make it in until the following morning. Despite that Kathleen had a very busy Friday evening with her art show-she called me to check to see how I was doing. She kept in contact with me as I tried to figure out what time I would be coming in on Saturday. She offered to pick me up-how thoughtful. Kathleen had a busy day on Saturday but still got on the phone with a friend so she could give me directions, let me use her private tub/shower so I could relax a bit after my hectic Saturday as a bridesmaid. She made me a little healthy, tasty snack while I got ready-what an incredibly sweet gesture. I felt at ease and at home at Kathleen's. Her home had a a very calming, positive energy. Thanks for everything Kathleen.

My partner John stayed with Kathleen, and here is what he said: Shortly after arriving it was already clear that I made the right choice. Kathleen was relaxed and inviting, her dogs and cat were warm and friendly, and her home in general had a very healthy, peaceful atmosphere. The room itself was nearly perfect for me: simple and quiet, with nice light and a private entrance off the back deck and garden, which Kathleen encouraged me to use and enjoy. The room adjoins another, as described, and the shared bathroom is spacious and convenient. It goes without saying that I will certainly stay again if the opportunity arises.

We became the second owners of the Chamberlain house in 1991, caring for this now 100 year old house in the heart of Madison's historic district has been an experience of on going culture building for our family over the decades.... After being relatively light on our feet for nearly a decade after college, we returned to our home town married with two babies girls needing a nest. We knew we wanted to live near the grandparents and began our search!

The Chamberlain house was listed for just one day in the newspaper and somehow I managed to persuade the owner over the phone to let me walk through. He had pulled the ad because he realized the house was not ready to show. It had become a rental property over the years with little to no maintenance, suffice it to say the house had lost its sparkle. I specifically remember my mother in law at the time saying after her tour, “I would not touch it with a ten foot pole.”

From the street, the aging dark brown paint job, the falling off gutters and gapping whole under the front porch stood out like a sore thumb in this tidy historic residential neighborhood. I was drawn in by the rustic street appeal, sitting there weathered on this sweet little raise in the land, this 80 years old house charmed me and called out for care.

Right off the bat, upon entering the screened porch, childhood memories of cloud watching for hours and day dreaming on the couch of my Gram's front porch in the UP were revived...... when we pushed open the solid oak front door we were met with waves of cat pee emanating from the gold shag carpet which shook me right out of my daydream. i imagined with ease that beneath the old soiled covering (which I immediately wanted to begin tearing out) was a protected hardwood floor. The smell was strong and begged to distract us from the rich patinated wood and leaded glass built-ins. The fact that there was no light shining through the windows didn’t help. I took the liberty of moving aside the sagging Mexican blanket covering the morning sun from streaming through the prominent east facing picture window. The sunshine lit the room up and as we walked through each room I was able to imagine it in its original splendor. The quality of the craftsmanship inspired me, some focused skilled crew built it back in 1915 for $4000.00. I began envisioning our family living under this roof.........twenty three years later, several dozen home repair projects completed (including even before we moved in a complete rewiring of the entire electric system of the house) it became a home base to our three amazing daughters, a fervent partnership, three beloved border collies, many regal cats, ancient friendships, countless family gatherings, and thousands of shared delicious meals. Today we continue the tradition of deepening our home base and culture by welcoming in folks from all walks of life and from all parts of the world.
