Madison Court, Syracuse.
Conveniently located near Thornton Park and Syracuse University, this historic, old school house is the home of many interesting and very lovely condominiums offering varied and unique floor plans. There are many single level and several multi-level townhouse-style units, all of which incorporate many of the historic architectural features of the old school. For example, slate blackboards, 10-12 foot ceilings, 12-inch oak baseboard moldings, original maple floors, huge 6-foot by 3-foot windows,and a few incorporate even more unique features of the school such as the auditorium stage and the castiron boilers.
The atrium in Madison Court offers a stunning welcome home at the end of the day, and a warm invitation to your guests. There is adequate parking and the downtown area for dining, museums, theaters etc, is very close. The owners are all very proud of their property, so these homes do not often come up for sale. When they do, you are advised to view them quickly as they can sell fast. This building is firm favorite for Syracuse University faculty. Watch this space for more pictures which we hope to have soon!
