Cherokee marsh, golf course surround serene northside Madison lots

There are few places left in Madison where you can build a home in a quiet, natural setting that's also close to amenities.

Among them are a handful of lots conveniently located between the Yahara River, Cherokee Marsh and Cherokee Country Club on the city's north side, just north of Wheeler Road.

One of the developments, called Burning Wood, is an extension of Burning Wood Way near Comanche Way. Here you'll find lots that back up to the golf course on the east side and face a wooded area along the Yahara River on the west side.

Just down the road hugging the river is Cherokee Park, which offers more views of the marsh, areas to fish and launch kayaks and canoes, and a playground with basketball court and soccer field.

Two of the four Burning Wood lots that recently hit the market have already sold, and it's no wonder why. Just look at this beautiful aerial shot from TenXMedia.

These nearly half-acre parcels are zoned to the Waunakee Community School District, and buyers will be able to browse a selection of custom builds to fit their wish list.

Silverwood Homes will build the single-family houses, which will range from about 1,850 to 2,300 square feet and feature brick exteriors, low-pitched roofs, and lower level walkouts.

On the other side of the golf course is another Cherokee Real Estate development. A spec home is being built on one of the 15 available lots at The Turn at Cherokee, which are accessible from North Sherman Avenue that leads directly to the Cherokee Marsh - North Unit.

Here you can see the proximity between the lots on Perfect Drive to the golf course, country club, and tennis courts.

There are plenty of perks for new owners to join the country club in their backyard. Golfers can enjoy the peaceful and secluded 18-hole golf course or year-round range, and tennis players can use the eight indoor and four outdoor clay courts. Members also have access to the workout areas, racquetball courts, and outdoor pool. Cherokee Country Club even has a reciprocity agreement for access to Princeton Club locations and The Madison Club.

People seem to also like the exclusivity and privacy that these lots offer, said Dennis Tiziani, golfer and developer with Cherokee Park, Inc.

And for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy hiking and birdwatching, there's over two miles of trails throughout this portion of Dane County's largest wetland. You'll even find a boardwalk, observation decks, conical mounds, and scenic overlooks.
