Four-bedroom modern home along the river in Mequon, listed by Bradley Wabiszewski of First Weber.
This four-bedroom home along the river in Mequon was listed this week by Bradley Wabiszewski of First Weber. The home was originally designed by the Leenhouts - Lillian & Willis Leenhouts were a husband-wife architecture duo that designed many of the Mid-Century Modern homes that dot the MKE north shore. This particular home was built in 1953 and has had a recent, modern renovation.
The location is Parkview Drive in central Mequon. This is on the Milwaukee River, just above the dam, and sits on two acres with 135 feet of shoreline. It's also close to Homestead.
This is a very cool renovation of a Mid-Century Modern design. There's this big domed, round, windowed room (pictured below) that overlooks the large backyard and the river... it's so amazing... and it includes the big kitchen plus an upper-level room and a large lower level entertainment space, bringing tons of light into the entire home. It's rather hard to describe - you'll just have to check out the photos. Obviously, we like it.
