Property Description

302 Main E St Rochester WI 53105-6707 - No cookie-cutter house here! Wisconsin statehood was in its infancy when this Greek Revival four-bedroom home was built in about 1852. Located 30 miles from Milwaukee, this historic home is set on an oversized lot with mature trees. There is ample room for a large garden in addition to the oversized two-car garage and garden shed. Old house enthusiasts will appreciate its many unique features: exterior hand-made, red/orange bricks; large windows; a cross and Bible front door; spacious rooms; two-panel interior doors; hand-hewn beams; wide molding; maple floors; iron door latches; and a simple Federal style staircase with well-worn steps. The first floor consists of a formal living room, dining room, large eat-in kitchen, pantry, bathroom, laundry room, and porch. The second floor consists of two large and two smaller bedrooms, and walk-in attic. The connecting doors between each large and smaller bedroom create the possibility for bedroom suites. The "new" front porch was added in about 1885, near the close of the Victorian age. The door accessing the upper level of the porch is fitted with an original etched-glass window. This home was featured in Heritage Guidebook: Landmarks and Historical Sites in Southeastern Wisconsin by H. Russell Zimmermann. Modern updates include a newer gas furnace, updated electrical with circuit breakers, and a basement with concrete floor. This home preserves the materials and craftsmanship of an earlier time and is part of Wisconsin's cultural history. Sensitively restored, this home will serve today's needs while showcasing the past, and it has the potential for historic renovation tax credits. Bring your vision and creativity to this solid home's high-quality materials and classic design. You will be rewarded with your own unique piece of history that will last well into the next century!
