Spacious 19th Century Estate

Discover a peaceful 10-acre estate that feels far removed from urban sprawl despite being only 20 minutes from Milwaukee. This is the last piece of the Fromm empire that is still owned by a member of the family. The Fromms were the “Rockefellers” of the silver fox industry and the world’s largest producer of ginseng when they purchased this tract around 1920. Today, this historic property radiates a combination of Old-World charm and tantalizing possibilities.

Among the highlights of the parcel is a spacious 19th-century home that has 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, a large rec room and 2 fireplaces. Outside you can explore the patio, in-ground pool, observation tower, courtyards, 2 garages and more. The incredible potential of this property is embodied by the adjoining 15,000 sq ft Shaker building made of timber frame and stone. Turn-of-the-century structure contains a living quarters, office, wood & metal shops, fitness room and four drive-in entrances. Transform this space into a corporate headquarters, spiritual oasis, training center or anything you can think of.

Most of the tract is in mature woods with maple and walnut trees as well as an apple orchard, walking trails and plenty of wildlife. An 18-hole golf course borders the land. Within 3-4 miles of Lake Michigan
