SETTING: Fox Point is a residential village on Lake Michigan, 10 miles from Milwaukee. This house sits on a bluff overlooking the lake, in a part of town known as East of Lake Drive, where the village’s grid gives way to wooded, winding roads lined with prewar houses on acre-plus lots. The village has a handful of county landmarks, residential and municipal, including cast-iron street signs hung shortly after the village incorporated in the 1920s. For shopping, most residents go to Whitefish Bay; Milwaukee is also nearby. There’s a public beach five minutes away, in Doctors Park.

INDOORS: The two-story house was built in 1934. Four wood-burning fireplaces, wood-beam ceilings, and hardwood floors are believed to be original; other parts of the house like the kitchen and bathrooms were recently updated by the current owner. Off one side of the central foyer is a dining room with a cove ceiling; off the other is a living room with wood-beam ceilings and a fireplace. The dining room leads to a kitchen, which in turn leads to a family room via a hallway lined with built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcases. French doors in the family room open to the covered back patio.

The master bedroom suite is off the living room, and opens to the back patio. The other four bedrooms are upstairs. One has an en-suite bathroom. Downstairs, in the finished basement, is a recreation room with a fireplace and a mosaic-tile floor also original details.

OUTDOOR SPACE: The lot is on over an acre and a half, with a patio, landscaped perennial gardens and mature trees.

TAXES: $20,139.26
