$1 Million 'Wow House' Shines on the North Shore

Classic Whitefish Bay Tudor with view of Lake Michigan has been featured in local magazine.

From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally friendly abodes, the Milwaukee suburbs are chock-full of one-of-a-kind homes for sale. Each week, Patch highlights one "Wow House" that caught our attention.

This week, it's a home at 607 E. Belle Ave. in Whitefish Bay that is so unique, it was once featured in a local magazine.

This four-bedroom, 2.5-bath classic Tudor in the Klode Park neighborhood was built in 1927, but it has been fully renovated. The first floor features an open concept kitchen/family room, study/sitting room, mudroom, and formal dining and living rooms.

The master bedroom suite includes a sitting room, large master bath and huge walk-in closet. The 3,992-square-foot home, which has a nice view of Lake Michigan, also features leaded glass windows, detailed molding and multiple fireplaces.

The home, which has been on the market for just more than three months and recently had its asking price reduced, is being offered for $1,050,000. The 2011 property taxes on the home were about $15,000.

This property is being offered by Realty Executives-Integrity in Whitefish Bay. To schedule a showing, call (414) 906-4500.

What's this I see? New Broker and new lower price, the 3rd in fact. Obviously, someone had the "talk" with their broker. Gee, maybe I should get into real estate ;) Still lots of room to negotiate. http://realestate.aol.com/homes-for-sale-detail/607-E-Belle-Ave_Whitefish-Bay_WI_53217_M82988-94587 http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/607-E-Belle-Ave-Whitefish-Bay-WI-53217/110730639_zpid/

Joe Resident- Have you looked at the most recent price on this property??? Business is business...This isn't NY City, Miami or San Francisco/Silicon Valley, to name a few, that are either hot beds of technology w/ their IPO's or havens and for very wealthly foreigners looking to pour money into residences driving up prices higher and higher. This is Milwaukee buried in the heart of the midwest. It's a completely different market. You would do well to remember that. Price drop #4. 03/12/2013 Price change $969,900 -2.5% Suzanne Powers Realty Group, Inc. 02/13/2013 Price change $995,000 -2.5% Realty Executives - Integrity 01/04/2013 Price change $1,020,000 -2.9% Realty Executives - Integrity 11/01/2012 Price change $1,050,000 -8.7% Realty Executives - Integrity 10/01/2012 Listed for sale $1,150,000 Realty Executives - Integrity http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/607-E-Belle-Ave-Whitefish-Bay-WI-53217/110730639_zpid/

That's a cumulative (if I'm figuring right here) drop in asking price of about 15.7%. Wonder where it will have to go to sell...
