Description

Storybook property, in fantastic location, currently home to Club 251; formerly the Madison Winter Club. While property is in an R-1 residential zone, the structure can still function as a club. Maybe a Fine Dining Club? Proximity to commercial zone might surface other potential options with approval from Zoning and the Economic Development Committee. Sub-division or condominiums might be worth exploring. This stately structure has an interesting history. In 1950 a barn was moved from the upper parking lot to join the house, thus forming what is now the ballroom. The purpose, though, was to start a restaurant called "The Carriage Drive". The property was later sold in 1954 and continued as a restaurant. In 1956 the property was sold to the Madison Winter Club. Club Governors did not wish for the location to remain idle during the summer months. So, they leased the property to the chef who operated a public restaurant under the name of Madison Post House. The property boasts a restaurant worthy chef's kitchen, large ballroom and formal dining area complete with beautiful oak bar with full compliment of appliances. The second floor embraces a large, well kept, two bedroom apartment complete with granite kitchen, laundry room and separate entrance. Ballroom opens to a spacious patio adjacent to a substantial parking area with space for approximately 60 cars.
