I love to look at houses that are for sale, I peruse The English Home magazine for the perfect place in the Cotswold’s, or a small cottage on a Loch in Scotland(which is my dream), or attend charity open houses, and the idea houses from Country Living, or Southern Living. I simply cannot get enough of the architecture, the moldings, the design, the layouts, the gardens, the art and of course the furnishings.
When I was in Milwaukee recently perusing my favorite area, and driving on my favorite street, Lake Shore Drive, which runs through Milwaukee, Bayside, Fox Point, Whitefish Bay and Riverside and Mequon, this house was for sale.
The gardens and the houses are so beautiful, they remind me of a manor house in England. If you are interested the house is 11,544 sq feet and has 8 bedrooms and 6.5 baths.
This house sits across from some other stunning mansions that are on a cliff overlooking Lake Michigan. Many of these mansions go up for sale and have not been updated in many years, unfortunately the costs of updating the electric, the heating, the air conditioning( usually non existent), the kitchens, the baths, etc are cost prohibitive, so unfortunately little pieces of the history of Milwaukee are torn down.
