Our house is a very large (2300 sq. ft) ranch with an open floor plan & a finished basement with wet bar. The master bedroom has a king bed & own bathroom. The 1st floor has two good-sized children's rooms as well. The guest bedroom is on the lower level. Our sunny home looks back onto a large backyard with big trees that is adjacent to a large corn field -- allowing privacy & a pretty view. Our home is 13 years old, modern, & comfortable.
We live in a very nice, family-friendly neighborhood with many parks & services. It is a quiet end street that has little traffic. We can walk to our awesome library (great kids section), post office, grocery, stores, & restaurants. We are a 10 minute drive from a major interstate highway & 20 minutes to downtown madison. Our neighbors are really friendly and often very helpful, with a weekly local playgroup for young children.
My husband, Adam, will be attending school at Imperial College in London from January, 2008 to June, 2008. Our son (4 years old), daughter (1 1/2 years old), & I plan to visit him for a week or two during that time. I am a clinical psychologist in a private practice nearby. We love hiking, sailing, ballroom dancing, reading, &, of course, quality playtime with our children.
