Benjamin Miller House

5 Bdrms


Five-bedroom downtown Craftsman, designed by Alexander Eschweiler.


This lovely downtown Craftsman began life as the "Mrs. Benjamin K. Miller House", designed by Alexander Eschweiler and built in 1911.

Benjamin Miller was an early Milwaukee attorney whose firm became Foley & Lardner. Miller is best known for his preeminent stamp collection, which he donated to the New York Public Library in 1928.

The location is Astor Street, right downtown, between State and Juneau. Is there a better spot? This is just a block from Juneau Park and a few blocks from the Calatrava, the Art Museum, etc.

The home is currently used as an office space, according to the listing, and is marketing by a commercial real estate firm as a residential listing. And though we couldn't find a commercial listing, we assume it is also being marketed as an office. No inside pictures on the listing, sadly (we'll try to get some). The large side yard to the north is part of the neighbor's property, we believe. There exists a large driveway right in back of the home, but there does not look to be a garage.
