Very unique opportunity to own a piece of Milwaukee history! The Russel Bennett house dates back to 1855, noted for the Gothic Revival architectural details throughout the exterior of the home with its arch windows, decorative bargeboards & finials. The cream city bricks were fired at the same local yard used for the St. Francis Seminary Grounds. A grand foyer greets you when you enter the home, with access to two spacious living spaces full of historical charm. The lower level also includes a kitchen, a full bath, and a dining room. The upper level has three bedrooms along with a full bath & an flex living room. A private staircase was added for access to the upper level and for rental income potential. This house is truly one of a kind when it comes to its history and quality of build!

    I like the last one the best! The only room that seems to have had the charm rehabbed out of it, is that first room with the day bed and the bay window. The rest is pretty cool.

      Agreed! That last one… I love its stone exterior, and it’s a cute house inside, too.

    I’ve always wondered what the Gothic house in Milwaukee, Wi looked like inside. Very disappointing. The staircase and bay window are nice, but the rest is a horrible injustice, not much of the original interior is left. No old house should have to be subject to this.

    Loire Valley, France,

    The last house is just gorgeous and comfy, would love to live in it! And I love the exterior, it almost looks French but the bow-window makes it look rather British.

    And the first one, the Gothic revival, whereas i just love the exterior with the stones and gingerbread trim on the gables, the inside is rather Hollywood Regency and makes it look like the house had an identity crisis. I don’t really get why updating to such a style into such a house.

      Miss-Apple37, I agree with you and Cindy about the Gothic revival. Even after I read both your comments, I was not prepared for just how unappetizing the interior was. The decor choices are strange and offputting. And while those could be changed, there’s so much of it I’d have to get rid of, it wouldn’t be worth the expense and trouble (unless I wanted to live in that exact location and had the money and leisure to take on the project). And what is up with that French door that’s bricked over? Who does that?

        Y’all nailed why it didn’t get it’s own post. But I think for the right person, just the exterior alone would be worth fixing the interior for.

    Love the elevator of the one in Texas, and the kitchen. And the house itself would be easy to make nice since all the rooms are so basic and plain and lovely with big windows. Just get rid of all that frilly furniture and take out the carpet, plant native plants in the yard and let all that super water-sucking grass die, and this house could be supreme!

    I really like that Rainier, Oregon, house. Sure, there are things I’d change—carpet I’d remove, flooring I’d redo—but it’s so pretty outside, with a lovely view. And while those kitchen cabinets aren’t as old as the house, I like them, so I’d hate to tear them out. But overall, I have to admit, I’m partly drawn to it because of all the stuff on display. It’s cluttered and hectic, just like my home! 😀
