Kenosha, Southeast, Wisconsin, USA.
Just 30 South of Milwaukee & 60 Minutes North of Chicago.
Other Activities: Shopping, Boating.
Year Purchased: 2006
Why the Owner Chose Kenosha, WI, USA:
I bought this property to work on my artwork. The magnificent views of the lake and sounds of the waves crashing onto the bluff serve as great inspiration.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is unique to other waterfront properties in Wisconsin because you can hear waves crash onto the bluff when weather permits whereas houses on smaller lakefronts don't offer such sounds. The house scenic, peaceful, romantic, inviting, inspirational, private, quiet, and serene yet is close to shopping, restaurants, golfing, entertainment, and much more.
