The circa 1825 "Samuel W. Dowd House" is a white Greek Revival home featuring black shutters and a portico with fluted Doric columns. The home combines the architectural beauty of the nineteenth century with all the modern conveniences. The nearly 3400-square-foot home with a three-car garage sits on just over three acres. It has two working fireplaces, including one with a traditional beehive oven. The kitchen, a later addition to the original structure, has Shaker-style painted cabinets, exposed beams, and black soapstone countertops. One of the many interesting features of the house is a tiny door on the second-floor landing that opens onto the kitchen. A private deck off the master bedroom provides an ideal spot to relax while enjoying views of the pool. A spacious heated studio is an ideal artist studio or workshop for a tinkerer.
On June 24th, 2018, The Madison Historical Society's 6th Annual Tour of Remarkable Homes of 5 unique Madison Properties was held from 11 to 4. See flic.kr/s/aHsmiFnBoe for more scenes from this event.
