This Queen Anne style home was built in 1892 for Charles Gezelschap by the architectural firm of Ferge & Keiper. Gezelschap owned a lighting fixture store in the building on a building on Third Street north of Wells Street (current site of a George Webb restaurant).
This gorgeous Victorian, which is over 4,000 square feet, has beautiful architectural details including several original fireplaces and a grand staircase. It’s believed the carriage entry on the northeast corner of the house was enclosed in 1910.
The current owners purchased the home in 2015 after sitting vacant for eight years from the City of Milwaukee with a vision to restore its old world charm adding some creative modern twists. You will have an opportunity to see the work in progress and what they’ve accomplished to date as they bring this house back from a derelict state to a living home with a new story
