On Klode Alley
6040 N Lake Dr Whitefish Bay [map]
3 Bedrooms / 2 Full & 1 Half Bath
Three bedroom home on "Klode Alley" in Whitefish Bay.
We profiled this cute, three-bedroom Colonial when it was originally listed last February. It is still available and has just had a price change down to $499,000 (from $579k).
This cute three bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home on Lake Drive was just listed.
The mailing address might say Lake Drive, but this is actually a very private, short street east of Lake Drive known as "Klode Alley". Frank Klode originally lived at 6030 N Lake Drive, east of here, overlooking Lake Michigan. Other members of the Klode family built homes along the driveway and eventually the driveway became an "alley". In the 1920s, the Klodes sold the land to the south and it became "Klode Park".
The home is almost 3200 square feet - big for a three bedroom. The sellers have done plenty of work since their purchase in 2013, including upgrades in the kitchen, new hardwood floors in living/dining rooms and new paint throughout. We really dig big sunroom in the back of the house. It has multiple sliding doors to the outside patio - it must be wonderful in summer. The living room with the big fireplace is just inside the front door also looks great (picture below).
Plenty of photos and details via the listing link below.
