Beautiful Old Home on Hackett
3012 N Hackett Ave Milwaukee [map]
4 Bedrooms / 1 Full & 1 Half Bath
Four Bedrooms on Hackett and Lynnwood.
We were sad and happy to see this home cross our search this morning. We know it well. The owner served as the matriarch of our neighborhood for a long, long time. She was a wonderful woman and she loved this beautiful home. But now it can pass to someone else who can love it like she did.
It's in the 3000 block of Hackett which is a really, great block with an excellent halloween celebration. It's close to UWM, Downer Ave and Lake Park.
This home was built in 1914 and is unlike the homes around it. It would seem more at home amongst the homes on Lake Drive or Marietta, where their original owners spared no expense on the details. There are some amazing stone details on the exterior of the home. And the large living room and dining room could be wonderful places to entertain. We always admired the cute porch on the second floor and the beautiful gardens that were tended by the owner. There's also a big, undeveloped space in the attic that could make this home much larger or maybe add a second full bathroom.
