    This house is so cute. The interior has some beautiful details. I’m a sucker for arches. The description mentions original stained glass, I wish it had been included in the pictures. I love to see old window designs.

    The first thing I would do is take out those sliding windows upstairs, I loathe sliding windows lol

    The exterior is stunning. I’m a little disappointed in the interior based on my expectations but to each her own.

    Whoa… the inside is much fancier than I expected it to be! Love the pale blue/aqua fp tiles. And the arches. Incl. the roof’s.

    Here’s an article with a picture of what the original upstairs windows looked like. https://onmilwaukee.com/history/articles/schade-house-cudahy.html What a shame they are gone. And some exterior pix from 1990: https://www.wisconsinhistory.org/Records/Property/HI56993

      Thanks NonaK.
      Those windows stuck out to me as well and I was hoping to see original design.

      Yes. Thanks for showing us what the windows should look like. The exterior is darling but really needs the arch windows restored.

    What an elegant cottage and so completely original. I love good plaster details like these!

    Some interesting details appear on this house. It appears early ideas that would later lead to the Bungalow style were being explored here. The interior is a bit rambling but that was a characteristic of the Queen Anne style. The arches in the rooms are also noteworthy.

    Well, now. Pretty spectacular all around!! Not a thing I couldn’t live with if I were so lucky.

    LOVE it. Period.

    Beautiful house. They certainly do not build them like that anymore!

    Like the arches too! Why are there no pics of bathroom? And stained glass windows? I would have to repaint the outside of the house as I hate green. Sorry. I do love that little extra tile design over the stove though and would make cushions to go on that corner bench in the kitchen! Real cute house otherwise.

    I’m originally from Wisconsin and whenever OHD posts a a house from my home state I have to look it up on the map to see exactly where it is. Cudahy. Always heard it pronounced “Cudahee”. Never knew it was on Lake Michigan, and now I do. Darling house, by the way. Thank you.

      I grew up in Cudahy and we always pronounced it “Cudahay”. It’s a nice size town on Lake Michigan, about 20,000 people. But like all small towns recently, it’s not like it used to be, a little depressed with the shopping center almost empty. And drug problems in some areas. But this house is in a good area, love the ceilings, beautiful house.

    I love this house! I live 3 blocks away and walk my dog past it all the time just to look at it. I wish I could afford to buy it!
