Happy Holidays on Humboldt
1662 N Humboldt Ave Milwaukee [map]
3 Bedrooms / 3 Bathrooms
A three bedroom Victorian on the Eastside.
by Pamela Williams
For many years this well-known three bedroom, three bathroom (two full) lower East side Victorian has been wonderfully decorated for Christmas and Halloween. This is the awesome historic home of a prominent Milwaukee interior designer so it's no surprise its decked out during the holidays.
The home last sold in 1989 for $90,000 and it has been converted from a duplex to a single family home over the years. It's just south of Brady Street, just a few houses away from Peter Sciortino's Bakery.
Everything about this home is ornate. I love that in true Queen Anne Victorian fashion, there is a formal parlor and staircase just inside the entrance. The owners have done a great job of maintaining the classic Victorian theme while updating the home to include modern amenities such as an updated kitchen and a very nice patio in the back. A very awesome bonus is the additional sitting room and 3rd bedroom on the third floor.
