These homes have some comm0n characteristics in that their average size is about 1,500 finished square feet excluding garage. Homes that have finished space in their lower levels average about 500 square feet more. These homes tend to fall into two major age groups: under 15 years old and between 40 and 70 years old. About 8% of the inventory is new construction and these homes can be found in neighborhoods like Linden Park, Waterford Glen and Cardinal Glen.

Madison West Side homes in two age brackets.

Naturally the homes in the under 15 years old group are going to have more contemporary finishes and will be in the newer subdivisions. Here you will find open floor plans, master suites with walk-in closets and full baths, powder rooms, vaulted ceilings. Most will be 3-bedroom/2-full bath homes and many will have finished space in the lower level. There is new construction in the group as well so look for Green Built certifications.

The older homes, those in the 40-70 year old group, will be more traditional with formal dining rooms, smaller kitchens and some detached garages. In this period walk-thru or "Jack-n-Jill" bathrooms were more common than master suites are today and you might see other traditional elements like Dutch doors, masonry chimneys and mature landscapes. These were solidly built homes that have stood the test of time and if you like the feel of an older home, the Madison West Side will have many to choose from.
