Westmorland home for saleRarely available and unusually affordable, this Westmorland contemporary was the 14th home designed by Lithuanian-American builder and colleague of Frank Lloyd Wright, Marshall Erdman. This 1,555sf home features a huge great room with skylight, expansive fireplace (that heats the entire great room), and wall of windows overlooking a private, fenced-in, wooded backyard. Your worries will melt away as you soak in the tranquility from your private indoor hot tub located in the solarium overlooking the professionally designed Japanese gardens (complete with two waterfalls and a pond!). Master bedroom suite with full bath, walk-in closet, Eastern exposure, and a view of the aquarium (can be fresh water, salt water, or dry, all equipment is included). Bedroom #2 has direct access to a half bath which is also accessible from the front hallway. Centrally located, highly efficient, "one-step" kitchen features pass-through to the great room (wall is not structural so the kitchen can be opened up further, if desired). There are tons of built-ins for media and books on both sides of the great room, lots of extra cabinets in the hallway outside the kitchen, and a good-sized pantry. The backyard shed provides loads of outdoor storage.

This is one of the most affordable vintage Usonian Madison contemporaries on the market in years and the icing on the cake is that it's located in one of Madison's most sought-after West Side neighborhoods, just steps from Westmorland Park, EVP Coffee, the Southwest bike path, the Arboretum and Monroe St. This home sports a new roof as of May 2011, a 2 year-old tankless water heater for unlimited hot water, and a 6 month-old water softener. All of the original windows have been restored & the home also has central air. With its beautiful and elaborately landscaped garden, you'll revel in Japanese maples, an expansive flagstone patio, rock gardens, moss, and ferns. Dry basement. Priced to sell.

Note: the half bath used to be a full bath and could be converted back to a full bath. The basement laundry can also be relocated to the Master bathroom closet if that is desired & the laundry chute to the basement blocked off. Call (563) BUY-SOLD or (608) 628-9701 for details.

He is a perfect example of organic architecture, using nature as inspiration and incorporating it into everyday living spaces. I've always wondered what it looked like on the inside and I am even more in love with it now!
