Charming on Kent
6031 N Kent Ave Whitefish Bay
5 Bdrms / 4 Full & 1 Half Bath
This charming, renovated Whitefish Bay Colonial was built in 1938 for Miller Brewing scion Frederick C. Miller. It's listing this week for $1.325 million by Falk Ruvin Team of Coldwell Banker.
Fred C. Miller is arguably one of Whitefish Bay's most famous citizens. Miller attended Country Day (now USM) in Whitefish Bay and then Notre Dame where, in 1928, he captained the football team that, under Knute Rockne, lost to Georgia Tech in the National Championship. Miller's mother was the Miller Brewing family connection - she was the daughter of Miller-founder Fred Miller (his parents shared the same last name but were not related). In 1947, Miller became President of the family's brewing company and, in 1953, helped bring the Braves to Milwaukee from Boston. Sadly, he died in a plane crash in 1954, just after takeoff from Mitchell. (Wikipedia has a longer bio.)
The location of this Whitefish Bay Colonial is on Kent Avenue, between Montclair and Monrovia. This is just a couple of blocks from both Richards School and the JCC.
The home sits on a pretty, double lot with an awesome fenced-in backyard and a lovely deck (pictured below). Inside, it's been completely redone, including a new kitchen, new bathrooms and new floors. We really like the cute family room that opens out to the pretty deck and yard - looks excellent for entertaining.
