The Bannen House
2906 E Newport Ave Milwaukee [map]
6 Bdrm / 4 Full & 2 Half Bath
The six-bedroom James T. Bannen House was listed over the weekend by Shorewest's Jim Schleif.
Just west of Lake Drive and north of the Lincoln Memorial/Lake Drive/Kenwood intersection at the corner of Newport Avenue and Shepard. This is close to UWM and so convenient to getting downtown.
This lovely Mediterranean Revival-style home was built in 1915 for machinery company executive James Bannen and was designed by noted Milwaukee architect Herman W. Buemming. We love the large first-floor rooms in this house - especially the lovely foyer and the living room with the big fireplace. Also, check out the bright and sunny "solarium" - looks fantastic.
