About Me
I retired to Lyon, France with my partner Thomas after a long career in secondary public schools in New South Wales, Australia, New York State and Minnesota in the United States. Tom retired from I.T. at The University of Wisconsin at Madison, Wisconsin and is working in I.T. first in Lyon, Paris and now in Strasbourg, France. We are enjoying Europe but plan to return to Madison, Wisconsin, U.S.A. in a few years where we own a condo located in downtown Madison. This double condo has an excellent location a block from The Capitol Square and near all the amenities of the city and The University of Wisconsin. The Baskerville has a "walk score" of 95/96 which tells one much as to its convenience and access to restaurants, cafes, shops, the public library, and cultural events. We are looking for responsible residents who wish to enjoy downtown Madison life and will appreciate the vintage warmth of a 1913 building. It is listed on The National Registry of Historic Buildings The Wisconsin Registry of Historic Buildings and Madison landmark. Our condo features custom work which reflect the history and rich vibe of the building and add comfort to those living in our home. In our travels Tom and I alone or together have visited Canada, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Poland, The Czech Republic, Switzerland, Australia and African countries and look forward to more travels during our time in Europe. Please consider renting and enjoying your Madison sabbatical life in our condo.
