If you’re looking for a great place to raise a family, you’ll want to take a good look at 10235 Meandering Way! This 2-story 3-bedroom 2.5-bath home has a large backyard — but if that’s not enough, the neighborhood park is just a half block away. And with its many upgrades, the house itself is pretty great as well!
This house is close to just about everything. Located on the far west side, just off Mineral Point Road near Blackhawk Church, it’s close to the Madison-Middleton border — yet has a Verona address and is part of the Madison school district.
Built in 2017, you’ll notice the home’s curb appeal right away, with an exterior that’s fresh and welcoming. When you open the front door, you’ll find a large open entry. The warm colors will make you feel right at home — the soft light-brown doors and woodwork are complemented by floors with a weathered-barnwood look and neutral paint for a light an airy feel.
Just left of the front door, there’s a convenient front coat closet and powder room with a pedestal sink. To the right, there’s a spacious home office with a unique diagonal entry opening to the hallway. The office is large and well-lit — perfect for running a home business, checking your email or curling up with a good book.
And the home’s open floor plan is appealing. From here you can see the kitchen and family room ahead, just past an open staircase with wood rails and black spindles, that leads up to the second floor.
The kitchen features Corian countertops and a breakfast bar island with a built-in oversized sink. It’s illuminated with striking Edison bulb lighting – and will comfortably seat 4. A cook’s kitchen, the appliances have been upgraded with a 5-burner gas stove, a purifying water dispenser inside the fridge, and soft-close doors on all the cabinets and drawers — ready for your choice of hardware. The upper cabinets are tiered — making for a unique space between cabinets and ceiling.
The kitchen opens to an adjacent dining area with plenty of room for a buffet and large family table. This space overlooks, and opens to, a walk-out deck with room for a grilling and eating — or just relaxing while the kids play in the spacious backyard. Large trees and an un-mown natural space provide some extra privacy.
Back inside, the open floor plan leads from the kitchen to the great room — perfect for watching your favorite show from the kitchen or helping the kids with a little homework. There’s a convenient wall mount with hidden wires all ready for your own TV.
An oversized mudroom/laundry area with LVT flooring and three cubbies is perfect for storing coats, gloves and backpacks on your way in or out of the garage. And the full-sized LG washer and dryer are in a convenient location right by all the action — yet separated by a pocket door if you want to hide them from company or mute the noise.
The house has an attached 2-car garage with extra room for storage or toys. It’s accessed outside directly from the street — or from the indoor mudroom.
The home’s carpeted staircase leads to the second level where you’ll find 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The first bedroom, sitting at the top of the stairs is perfect for kids or guests. A large closet with a sliding door offers plenty of storage. The second bedroom is slightly larger and has the same large closet as well as a TV wall-mount with hidden wires.
A family bath opens off the same hallway. You’ll find a large tub with shower and shelves for your toiletries along with a large executive-height countertop and a wall switch timer to set the fan. A spacious linen closet is in the hall just outside.
And finally, a large corner master suite provides a great view of the natural backyard. There’s a TV wall-mount with hidden wiring in this room as well. And from here you’ll enter the master bath where an executive-height vanity with Corian countertop and a double sink makes getting ready in the morning an easy task. And making it even easier … the entrance to a large walk-in closet with shelving and an indented space — perfect for a sit-down vanity or additional shelves — is just a few feet behind you. And when the day is done, you’re sure to enjoy the large soaking tub with shower. What could be more relaxing?
The lower-level is unfinished but offers plenty of space to create your own haven. There’s space for a rec room and theater room or play area, as well as a full bath (the plumbing’s already in place). There’s window exposure high along one side and extra space near the mechanicals for a good sized storage area.
Other upgrades include a Ring doorbell out front and a Ring backyard doorbell and lighted motion sensor in the back. There’s a keyless garage entry, a Nest thermostat and Smart Lighting controls that can be synced to Alexa or your phone.
Sugar Maple Park is a mere half block away. Here the kids can climb on the playground equipment, play a pick-up game of hoops on the basketball court or use the open fields for a game of soccer, touch football or whatever suits their fancy. Families tend to gather here — and many enjoy getting together for movies in the summer months.
There’s an abundance of restaurants and shopping options right here on the westside, but the nearby Beltline can get you to the other side of town and beyond in just minutes. All in all, this is a great place to live!
