We are looking to purchase a home with some land (about an acre) in a nice area in Madison. We want to stay in the lower 200's.

There's one for sale in Skyline Acres but we're not familiar with that area. Anyone know anything about it?

We found a home in StoneRidge and put an offer down but they accepted another buyer's offer without giving us a chance to counter.

The only similar thing we see right now is the home in Skyline Acres. Any feedback on Skyline Acres or other areas that offer some land in Madison is greatly appreciated!

Other than the obvious trade-off more land for older home, I would say beware of old homes west of Slaughter, they are on septic (if that's a concern for you). Especially the really old ranchers in Skyline, or some in the next quadrant over, W Slaughter-N Eastview- S US72. (general area Indian Hills, Yancy Rd.). I was surprised to learn that, while assuming all along that the city of Madison is all on public sewer.
