Welcome to the Pearson Street Jewelbox, in the heart of Milwaukee's desirable lower East Side. Built in the 1890s, this single-family cottage home has been lovingly restored merging the charm of its original design with all of today's modern features and comforts. Owned and decorated by artists, the home features eclectic antiques and collectibles, Mid-century and contemporary furnishings, vintage light fixtures, and amusing and delightful artwork.

Keeping with the period it was built, the Jewelbox is small and cozy, but provides ample space for two. Just off the living room, you'll find a long bedroom with a queen bed, dresser, large custom-designed closet, stained glass window, large mirror and ensuite bathroom. The large bath has a roomy tiled shower. The dining room has a striking chandelier over an original Jens Risom dining table. The kitchen is completely remodeled and features a farm sink, stainless appliances, an artist designed metal table on wheels, and a vintage school bench.
As frequent travelers, we understand what makes for an ideal stay. The Jewelbox is stocked with the essentials you expect, such as cookware, dishes, silverware, coffee pot, glasses, towels, linens and blankets. We've also added the extras you want, such as stemware, hotel quality sheets and pillows, books, artwork, cloth napkins, wooden hangers, a blender, an iron and ironing board, laundry detergent, hand cream, tea, bottled water, a bottle of wine, a few beers, snacks and more.
You'll have the full first floor of the Jewelbox to enjoy. The unfinished second-floor attic and basement are closed off for storage. And during the warmer months, you'll love the adorable, secluded and landscaped backyard. We live just a few homes away and are available to assist, when and if needed. You can reach us by phone, text or email.
