I really like this three bedroom, three bathroom (two full), gablefront-style house on Downer Ave. It's just off Park, steps away from Downer's business district (Sendik's, Pizzaman, etc). This home was built in 1899 for NB Neelen, one of Milwaukee County's first juvenile court judges.
The home was last sold in 2002 for $199,900, and has undergone some very nice updates without taking away the colonial feel of the home. There's really nice restored woodwork and lots of windows to let in plenty of natural lighting.
My favorite part about this house is the well-cared for exterior. The yard is nicely landscaped with a large patio perfect for outdoor parties and a cool garage and dog house (or chicken coop?) that match the house. So quaint!
