“When I sold my home in Napa Valley in the early 90’s I knew someday I would again live in wine country…and how thrilled are we to have found that lifestyle in my home state of Wisconsin.”
With the help of a map and a piece of string representing a 30-mile radius around Madison, Andrea and David began searching for their “forever” home. Janesville, Edgerton, Evansville, Lake Mills, and Oregon all provided the rural lifestyle they wanted to the south and east of Madison. But only Cambridge, and in particular The Vineyards at Cambridge, “Gave us all that we desired; the beautiful Lake Ripley and the exceptional Lake Ripley Country Club weighed heavily on our decision as well. When I sold my home in Napa Valley in the early 90’s I knew someday I would again live in wine country…and how thrilled are we to have found that lifestyle in my home state of Wisconsin.” Said Andrea.
They chose The Vineyards at Cambridge because…
- “Downtown Cambridge is a small and quiet gem. Nothing moves fast in this small town…progress is patient, thoughtful, and the values of the community are strong.
- To be close enough to Madison for work on the West side of Madison, Wisconsin.
- To enjoy the cultural diversity, fine dining, arts, music, and sporting events in Madison and Milwaukee; all while maintaining a safe distance from the big cities.
- The Vineyards Winery and the Dancing Goat Distillery are literally walking distance from our front door!
The close proximity to the Glacial Drumlin State Trail.”…And soon to be even closer. In 2020 the connector path will begin construction, connecting Glacial Drumlin State Trail directly to the end of the street in The Vineyards at Cambridge.
What set Ideation Builders apart from other custom home builders that you researched?
“Once we decided on The Vineyards in August of 2018 we started interviewing custom builders. Of the three builders we met with, Josh with Ideation was the only builder to treat us like family! What a pleasure working with someone who’s trust in came so immediately and natural.
There are so many decisions to be made when building a home. Can you think of a time when the Ideation Builders team (Josh, Cory, Robin, Cathy) really helped the process?
Robin Guernsey with Stark Homes was equally as amazing in handling our lot purchase. Being that we were still living in Las Vegas, and would be until February/March of 2019, made the trust of utmost importance to us. Now that June has come and we have officially moved in, we can look back and know that we made the best decision on our builder and realtor!”
After choosing a lot in The Vineyards at Cambridge and building their home with Ideation Builders, the couple now reside in a contemporary Craftsman style home. With sweeping views of the Cambridge Winery’s vineyards and a paved bike path in their back yard, this house checks all the boxes to be Andrea and David’s “forever home.” When you see David and Andrea in “The Vin” and around Cambridge, be sure to say hello!
