    Probably older than the 1900 date given.

    BTW, I think the folks behind the Wisconsin Historical Society are awesome! It’s hard not to find a home in their historic survey database long with a photo. Linked up top, the new paint job is nicer than the old one.

    1993, hey I’m still looking! Boring
    Iowa County , WI

    I was just in Wau-ka-shaw this morning. I’ve never seen this house though. It’s a nice town, but getting a little too urban these days for my taste.
    I was surprised that a nice house like this is as cheap as it is considering the nice area it’s in

    This is my hometown! Waukesha has great history, and some really beautiful homes and buildings. The location of this home is nice, but there aren’t as many older homes in this area as there are in others. This home would be great for a family, as there’s the elementary school (at least, I think it’s still an elementary school) across the street and a public pool a few blocks away. It’s also not too far from downtown Waukesha, which has made such a turnaround in the last decade…for the better.

      Yesterday and friend and I drove past this home. It’s very pretty on the lot. Would like to see it without all the furnishings, however. They are lovely, but they don’t come with the home so I’d like to see it unadorned. The wallpaper at the staircase would have to go, unless it’s covering a myriad of sins.

    Wow! This one is a new favorite. I typically don’t care for a lot of wallpaper, but I was taken with each pictured here!

    I love this house, how I wish I could afford it. The staircase is so pretty and I like the built in china closet/cabinet in the kitchen. Also the pantry. I even like the wallpaper. Waukesha is such a cool city

    What a neat house! Definitely for an owner who wants to think – and live – outside the box!

    The lens must be weird on this camera because the proportions look a little silly. Tell yourself you are looking at a dollhouse instead, you can’t unsee it lol! Well, it made me giggle for a moment anyway. It looks like a great house though! And the staircase is amazing.

    It’s a lovely home and a beautiful town, especially the river walk, but what I was suprised not to see was a fireplace.

    I love this house. It has almost everything I want in a house. Maybe its just the photos, but the first floor ceilings look low. They look like 8 footers. I mean, 8 footers happen, but I seem to see 9 feet more as a default.

      I had the same thought about the ceilings, but after looking a second time I think it may be the lens. Everything seems out of proportion.

      I am digging that purple wallpaper.

    Unusual design in this house with opposite side bays like wings going out at an angle to the front entry. Almost for certain this was an architect designed house and was possibly taken from a published plan book of that era. (Maybe an early David S. Hopkins design?) It has a wonderful interior and an impressive staircase as well as an unusually located fine stained glass transom over the entry. Seems odd not to see art glass windows to either side of the front (and back/kitchen) entry. Staircase landings were also favorite locales for art glass windows but I see none in the photos. The house appears to be in fine condition and looks to be move-in ready.
