"The Madison" was a catalog house designed by Presidential Homebuilders (headquartered in New Jersey) during the 1960s. The original catalog shows the house with cream horizontal siding, red vertical siding, and white trim rendered in tempera. According to the catalog, "The dramatic sweeping design of the low pitched roof lines plus the panoramic window wall enhance the beauty of this low priced two bedroom rancher." The house is 560 square feet. The plan could have been built for about $7,500 in 1965 in a Levittown-style or vacation community. These houses are prevalent in the northeastern United States; however, the small size of the house means that most have been added on to.
