We’re always on the hunt for interesting midcentury modern listings for sale, and the latest to catch our eye is this four-bedroom, three-bath home in Madison, Wisconsin. Built in 1936, the home was designed by noted Wisconsin architect and Frank Lloyd Wright contemporary William Kaeser. Despite choosing Cranbrook Academy of Art over Taliesin in his youth, Kaeser’s prolific career was clearly influenced by Wright’s organic principles.
The 2,573-square-foot house finished a remodel last year but still maintains many original features. In the living room, original wood paneled walls feature hidden compartments and a large rock wood burning fireplace remains a focal point. The home boasts hardwood floors throughout, and tall ceilings are accented by floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of light.
A large, treehouse-like sunroom overlooks the wooded .38-acre lot, and the property has a spacious outdoor patio with views of a 100-year-old white oak tree. The verdant landscaping belies the listing’s convenient location in Shorewood Hills, a picturesque neighborhood not far from downtown Madison and Lake Mendota.
