Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Port Washington, Wisconsin

By RetroRuth

Hope all of you had a good Holiday! This week we are looking at a home which is off the market, but there were a couple of cool/unusual details I really wanted to show you all, so I’m trotting it out anyway.


This home is located at 304 W Jackson Street in Port Washington, Wisconsin. It is three bedrooms (or four?) and two and a half bathrooms and is about 2300 square feet. This on is a bit older than most we feature here, it was built in 1932 and, as I mentioned above, is currently off the market. But I saved the previous listing information here:

Only the finest Architectural Appointments in quality & design will be appreciated in this unique brick Tudor Style 3br/2.5ba gem recognized as one of the seven most prestigious homes in Port Washington of the 1930’s!Custom features include copper gutters,leaded glass windows,natural woodwork,ornate plaster crown moldings,HWF’s,lots of builtins & loads of character & charm. Enter the sitting porch w/arched windows & white pillars.Great Rm w/Gas FP,Desirable Formal Dining Rm. Upper boasts 2 bedrooms & expandable attic.Lower Rec Rm w/Gas FP & terrazzo floor & much more. A Must See!

Okay, who wants a basement with terrazzo floors? Anyone? Anyone?

Also, those bathrooms are #goals right there. That pink bathroom with the fish wallpaper is the stuff of my dreams. And how often to you see a purple vintage bathroom?

But most interesting of all was the awesome shadowbox collection! Literally in every single room! I love it.

What was your favorite feature or the one you found most interesting?

    Look at the mosaic floor tile in the second bathroom! Where’s the heart eyes emoji? This house is a treasure.

    A very dignified house, but filled with far too much decorative goop for my taste, especially in the bathrooms where that fabulous tilework is almost “lost in the sauce”. And what is with that weird kitchen layout?

    They are in every room! Huh. Do love the purple bath. Used to call Port Washington home. Loved it there.

    The first thing that attracts me to the house is the veranda–this would be a lovely place to sit and relax. The second plus is the radiant heat–old cast iron baseboard and radiators. They may be ugly to some, but it’s the best heating system to keep a consistent warmth (I’m NOT a fan of hot air heat). Yes, the kitchen is a weird set-up and I am also not a fan of the decor shown in the pictures, but this home looks like it has wonderful bones and could be decorated to anyone’s taste–it all has potential, and yes! I love the terrazzo in the basement. Glad to see it has beautiful wood floors throughout instead of carpeting. From the pics, it looks as if it has been well-maintained and the owners were clean–I hope the new owner loves it as it is!
