River Hills Farmhouse
8200 N Green Bay Road River Hills
5 Bdrm / 2 Full & 2 Half Bath
Beautiful 1870s River Hills farmhouse and barn, listed by Alex Anderson of Powers Realty.WHAT WE LIKE:
This beautiful River Hills farmhouse & barn dates to 1871 and was just listed by Powers Realty's Alex Anderson. This home became part of Armin Schlesinger's Estate, purchased in 1915. Schlesinger was an Eastsider who became one of the early developers of River Hills and purchased a large track of land near the Milwaukee Country Club. The River Tennis Club resides next door to this home - it was originally Schlesinger's pool and tennis court.
The location is a quiet, private drive off of Green Bay Road, in western River Hills. This is south of Brown Deer Road and right along the Milwaukee River. It's near the Milwaukee Country Club and, as mentioned, right by the River Tennis Club, which has an architecturally-famous old indoor tennis court.
If you're into Farmhouses, this is up your alley. It's been updated & renovated, with a very cool metal roof and geothermal heating. We love the big old fireplaces, like the one in the cool living room (pictured below). We also love the old stone walls that are integrated into this updated house. Additionally, there's a big barn that could be utilized in a number of ways. Also, check out the agent's Youtube video of the home.
