    Wow! The pantries alone are worth the price, let alone the rest!

    A whole pantry just for china!

    What a grand house. Not much to not be in love with. Hopefully the mentioned deferred maintenance hasn’t caused too much damage. Would love to see this place furnished with pieces grand enough to match the house.

    1988 Fake Greek Revival!

    Oh gosh, I’m in love. Graceful curves & unusual placement of the staircase. The library is enough to make my husband drool on his keyboard, and the pantry with wood counters — attractive as well as smart for preservation of delicate items. Overall a super place, and Madison is a beautiful town.

    I have family in Madison and lived there myself for a few years. Beautiful shoreline town with class. I’ve driven by this house many times. And though this style home is not for me, Its really a nice place.

    Easily one of my favorites. That graceful staircase and the fine, understated millwork make this a true beauty. I love the asymmetrical mantel in the dining room and I’ve never wanted a china pantry until now. The study is amazing. Though the boob lights scattered throughout have to go!

    Upstate/Central NY, NY

    Wow! That huge entry hall, the graceful staircase, the library, the china pantry(!!!), the great ratio of bathrooms to bedrooms, the walk-in closet – with shoe shelves, lots of windows making it nice & light, the very generous size of the rooms in general… once brought back up to snuff, with appropriate furnishings (albeit that would be a plenty pricey thing to do!)… this house will be a double wow!
