In the Washington Highlands
5 Bedrooms / 3 Full & 2 Half Bath
RE/MAX Realty 100
Five bedrooms on Washington Boulevard in Wauwatosa.
This castle-esque, five bedroom home in Wauwatosa went on the market yesterday, listed for $695,000. It last sold in December of 2014 for $667k.
This is on Washington Boulevard, right in the middle of Washington Highlands. Washington Highlands was one of the first planned subdivisions in the Milwaukee area and was designed "according to the standards of the 'Garden City Movement'". (Here's a link with more information.) Homes in this neighborhood were built in the 1920s; this home was completed in 1929.
And what a pretty home. It has been obviously modernized in recent times and has a nice kitchen layout. We love the curved staircase in the front foyer and the porch that faces the backyard. Also, the home's driveway is located on the back alley - no wasted yard on a driveway.
