A Waterside Retreat: Mid-Century Modern Elegance on Frenchman’s Bay

Discover serenity in every detail of this Mid-century modern masterpiece, peacefully nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac, and looking onto the captivating water of Frenchman’s Bay. With limited houses on Frenchman's bay, this is a very rare find. Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's visionary designs, this home seamlessly integrates the beauty of its surroundings into daily living.

The front yard consisted of gardens, mature trees, a deck, and a distinctive patterned concrete driveway. Being located on a quiet dead-end cul-de-sac the front of the property seems fairly narrow, but it opens up beautifully to a very wide frontage overlooking the bay. The windows in the front of the house are aligned with the windows in the rear so that you can look right through the home and see the views beyond.

Upon entering the interior of the home you’re graced with a thoughtful and unique layout. The architect used Frank Lloyd Wright’s design technique of “compression and release” to make the journey through the entryway into the high-ceilinged living room even more dramatic. The exterior walls showcase unexpected angles that intersect through glass to continue on into the interior of the house.

Once in the living room, there are wall to wall windows providing a view of huge oak trees and Frenchman’s bay. The room features vaulted ceilings and a Malm style fireplace, as well as an original mural. This home is truly one-of-a-kind!

The rest of the house is just as interesting and thoughtful.

The home was constructed in a “reverse living” style with the common spaces above the bedrooms in order to take full advantage of the views. The kitchen, remodeled in the 2000’s, wraps around the family room which has even more large windows overlooking the bay. There are wooden interior doors that extend to the ceiling without lintels. There are multiple exits and outdoor seating spaces. The home has an inground pool, a pool house and sauna.

Watch fireworks and nature’s splendor over Frenchman’s Bay from the comfort of your own home and in the wintertime, when the water is frozen, enjoy watching as well as joining the skaters, hockey games, ice yachts, ice fishermen, and skate sails on the bay. The views from the home are remarkable.

Surrounded by conservation parklands, this property invites you to indulge in a waterside lifestyle. Walk out your front door to a scenic walking trail. Minutes away from esteemed yacht clubs and a marina, it's a haven for boating enthusiasts. Picturesque beaches and miles of waterfront trails offer endless opportunities for exploration.

Escape the ordinary and embrace the extraordinary with this Mid-Century Modern masterpiece. Whether enjoying the serene views from your private courtyard or exploring the waterside wonders just moments away, this home offers a lifestyle that is as rare as it is remarkable.

Discover a haven where architectural brilliance meets natural beauty, creating a residence that is truly unparalleled. Embrace the tranquility!

This Mid-century Modern retreat is ready to welcome you as its new and treasured owner.
