Dodgeville, WI 53533
626 East Division Street is where the sidewalk ends at the eastern edge of Dodgeville, Wisconsin. This 4-bedroom home has just one neighbor, securing a rural feel despite an easy half-mile walk to the downtown businesses of the Iowa Street Historic District. The many amenities of the 3.89-acre lot steer the dream of a hobby farm in any direction. The pasture beyond the backyard fence is even suitable for horses, the only such lot within city limits.
A hip dormer with original six-pane window pierces the Dutch gable roof of this centennial farmhouse. A wraparound porch with simple paired columns hugs the home’s two-story façade with understated American Foursquare ornamentation. Past the porch swing, the beveled glass of the antique vestibule door peeks into the mudroom painted a timeless Americana blue. To the west, a candlelit chandelier defines an outdoor living room. Cut glass windows flank the main entrance, each etched with subtle garland detail.
The imperial staircase splits as it descends to the main floor, with a landing in the living room and another near the kitchen. Hardwood has been restored to its 1919 glory throughout the open living space. Operational pocket doors lead to the oversized dining room ahead, and a lath accent wall frames a wide passage to the family room. On the other side, coffered beadboard ceiling meets the wall-to-wall bookshelves surrounding the rediscovered archway. Salvaged barn beam mantle adorns the painted brick of the gas fireplace. Between the family room and kitchen lie the back staircase and the eclectic powder room, its crystal chandelier juxtaposed with rustic barn wood.
Exposed brick balances ornate dentil molding in the farmhouse kitchen, newly remodeled with stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, an apron sink, and abundant Shaker cabinets topped with quartz. The kitchen is at the heart of the home, with access to the walkout deck and lower level. The clay-toned palette spills into the dining room, where it contrasts with bright shiplap across the plate rail. The eastern window set above the gleaming built-in buffet casts a warm morning glow upon the family table.
Four sizable bedrooms envelop the central hall upstairs, each five-panel Shaker door painted clean white and boasting original hardware. The vintage floral paper of the primary bedroom evokes a romantic, nostalgic air that carries throughout this inviting home. The all-new hall bath offers a walk-in shower and double-sink vanity with stylish black-and-white accents throughout. A pajama lounge perfectly completes the upper level with a cozy, casual hangout.
The attached two-car garage accesses the versatile rec room, or a guest suite with full bath. The lower level also comprises storage, laundry, and a flex room with rough-hewn barn wood trim and soft mood lighting in the exposed joists above.
Solar post lights illuminate the large entertaining deck overlooking the backyard dotted with perennials. Raised garden beds repurpose lumber from around the property. The distinctive lot features fruit trees, lined duck pond fit for koi, goat pen, and chicken run. The horse barn has been reimagined through the years as a garage, storage unit, event venue, vintage resale store, and most recently for year-round golf practice.
Brand new updates include kitchen and bath remodels, vinyl windows, roof and gutters, gas fireplace, 220 electric and wiring to outdoor entertainment, and fresh paint throughout.
