5 Must Have Features In Your Luxury Home - Milwaukee

Technically speaking, local real estate brokers consider a home “luxury” in the Milwaukee area if its expected value on the market is $500,000 or more. This value is based on location, home condition, local market conditions, and space (room numbers, types and square footage).  However, a true luxury home is about more than sale price.  A true luxury home not only has a specific price tag, it also delivers a lifestyle of comfort and enjoyment created by the homeowner - and one that can be a magnet for the right prospective home buyers.

I’ve been in real estate for more than 17 years and have sold and bought thousands of homes for my clients. So believe me when I say I’ve seen A LOT of homes valued at $500,000 and up in the Milwaukee area, especially the North Shore and Wauwatosa. I’ve fallen in love with many of them because of a feeling they create and because of how someone (typically the current homeowner) has taken a room and turned it into a space you don’t want to leave. Yes, it’s partly floor, finishes, paint and furnishings, however, there is typically a feature (or features) that steals the scene - from deep soaking tubs to wine cellars to bedroom fireplaces and more. Here’s a sneak peek at five scene stealers in five luxury homes currently on the market.


        1.  An Entertainer’s Dream @ County Line Road in River Hills

If you want a home where comfort and entertainment for a large group is important, step into this main living area and get your breath taken away.  When you add eight Viking burners with two ovens, a space large enough for a dining table that seats 14, a lounging media area plus a more formal sitting area with fireplace, you get a space for daily living and larger group gatherings that is beyond special. And I couldn’t leave out the master bath – that shower!

        2.  Wine and Dine @ Creekside Court in Mequon

Unwinding after a long day has never been so easy.  This dining area with both a curved window wall and extra-large wine refrigerator in this beautiful home on Creekside Court in Mequon is so inviting you may never leave. I can just imagine enjoying dinner or simply a favorite beverage with family and/or friends.  The perfect mix of comfort and elegance.

And how can I not show you the outdoor fireplace?  Incredible!

        3.  Underground Haven @ Ravine Baye in Bayside

This home has it all!  In addition to a stunning kitchen, bathrooms, office, backyard oasis and more, it has an underground paradise complete with media center, large bar, exercise room and a spa with a sauna!  Yes, you heard that right. This baby has the amenities and space to make everyday living feel like a vacation.

        4.  A Wine Lover’s Dream in a Restored Historical Gem @ Terrace in Milwaukee

This magnificent home is full of both historic charm and finishes and features that fit a modern lifestyle – from a gorgeous walk-in closet, luxurious bathrooms, a sauna, a super fun basement bar and so much more. It was tough to choose only one feature.  However, the wine room won me over with its huge cork wall, sconces, brick wall, racks and more. So beautifully done. I might be tempted to spend too much time there! This is truly a home that’s been well stewarded and will be a treasure for a new owner. 

Don’t miss this one: https://www.powersrealty.com/property/2221-n-terrace-ave-milwaukee-wi-53202/

        5.  Showstopper @ Sheridan Drive in Mequon

The jaw-dropping lake views, cathedral ceilings and finishes in this home are beyond beautiful, and there are many features to brag about.  However, this double-griddle Viking range adorned by a stunning, one-of-a-kind, ceramic tile backsplash topped off by a custom range hood makes me stop in my tracks every time I see it.  This is truly a place any family would love to call home.

And I can’t stop myself from including that jaw-dropping view (this is from the patio)…
