Overview - 8415 N Pelican Ln River Hills WI 53217

No expense spared and no detail overlooked in the design and construction of this 1937 masterpiece and personal residence of the noted Milwaukee architect, Fitzhugh Scott Jr. Thoughtfully situated just 9 miles from downtown Milwaukee on 10.8 tranquil, bucolic acres along 440 feet of the Milwaukee River in the prestigious community of River Hills, this Colonial’s manor-style magnetism is instantly apparent upon making one’s way down the long, winding driveway towards the meticulously-manicured grounds and well maintained home. The home’s southern exposure provides natural lighting and warmth during the dark winter months while the grounds’ large trees provide ample shade and cooling during the hot summer months.

Generously sized at over 7,000 square feet, this home manages to feel cozy while demonstrating an expert blend of modern conveniences with original architecture. The home’s west wing is comprised of a main floor family room and screened-in porch below an upper level master suite and open-air deck, all showcasing fireplaces (3). The home’s east wing consists of an attached garage with 3 “SUV” sized stalls, a mud/laundry/crafts room, and an eat-in kitchen with a fireplace (1) and lounge area below an upper level second family room, two additional bedrooms, and an office with a second open-air deck. The home’s core features a living room with a fireplace (1) and a dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows below 3 ample-sized bedrooms.

Recent mechanical improvements: 2017 - water conditioning system; 2014 - roof, exterior paint, furnaces (2); 2013 - well tank and casing, driveway; 2012 - water heaters (2). Conveniently located less than 1 mile from the Milwaukee Country Club and the River Tennis Club, and less than 3 miles from the University School of Milwaukee and the Lynden Sculpture Garden. Don’t forget about the outdoor living activities like fishing, canoeing, and kayaking on the Milwaukee River as well as the organic farming possibilities on a rarely offered 10+ acres.
