General description

  • Main home
Duplex in the trendy Riverwest neighborhood. 2+ bedrooms/1 bath. It is necessary to climb stairs to enter the home. My unit is the lower level; there is a quiet tenant in the upper level. The house is on a high bluff above the Milwaukee River and you can see lights of the city at night.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 3 cats
I have three cats who need daily feeding (both canned and dry food) and litterbox duty. They are indoor cats. They are shy at first but once they know you they will love lots of petting and under the chin scratching. Like most cats, they love chasing strings and balls and attacking mysterious lumps under the covers! Mail should be retrieved every day. There are some plants that need watering once a week.

I recently purchased the duplex which had been a rental for years. I have lots of renovation plans; for now the house is worn, but comfortable. It is in a quiet city neighborhood. The location is what makes it such a great spot. Access to the miles of bike and hike river trails are very nearby; Lake Michigan is a 1.5 mile walk; downtown Milwaukee is an easy 2 mile walk. A large selection of grocery stores and restaurants are very close. Access to the bus is one block away. There is ample off-street parking.

No cable, but many broadcast stations are received through an antenna; Roku is hooked up to one TV for streaming services. Wireless internet signal is strong and dependable. There is a washer and dryer available in the basement.
