$2.5 Million Home Features 6 Bedrooms, 4-Car Garage

This week's Patch WOW House is located on Buckingham Place in Brookfield...which is appropriate since it's pretty much a suburban palace.

From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally-friendly abodes, the Milwaukee suburbs are chock-full of one-of-a-kind homes for sale.

Each week, in our new feature, Patch will highlight one "Wow House" that caught our attention.

This week, it's a 10,200-square-foot home with 18 rooms and a 4.5-car garage located on a 2.2-acre lot 2610 Buckingham Place in Brookfield.

Listed by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Mequon, this "palace" includes six bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms, a theater, an elevator, a wine-tasting room, a music room and in-mirror television.

The asking price is $2,550,000. If you put 20 percent down and have a 30-year mortgage, your monthly payments would be about $11,800 per month. Property taxes last year were about $27,000.

To schedule a showing, contact JoAnn Vetter at (262) 240-2611.

If you're a real estate agent and would like to have one of your home included in our free "Wow House" feature, send an email to milwaukee@patch.com.

I can tell the difference between skilled hard work and not. Most people paying for work to be done can too. Usually you get what you pay for. The owners can choose to be generous with honest hard working employees or not.
Bob McBride November 05, 2012 at 04:25 AM
Because I'm in charge of everything. And, yes, everyone thinks I'm attractive. Anything else?
Annie Nominous November 05, 2012 at 04:30 AM
@ Jim Price - now you are trying to justify the innuendo of your original post. Did the Mrs. read it or something? Mixing classic columns...blah, blah, blah...nice try, though.
Annie Nominous November 05, 2012 at 04:35 AM
Whoa, Bob...really? Everyone finds you attractive?
Annie Nominous November 05, 2012 at 04:36 AM
Hey Bob...Are you sure your name isn't "Bob McPride?"
Bob McBride November 05, 2012 at 04:37 AM
Yes, really, everyone finds me attractive. Absolutely everyone. It's a curse, really. You should be thankful you don't have that problem. Anything else I can help you with?
Annie Nominous November 05, 2012 at 04:41 AM
Bob McPride...now you are just getting obnoxious. You are too good for yourself.
Bob McBride November 05, 2012 at 04:44 AM
I keep telling myself the same thing Annie, but what am I going to do? I'm stuck with me.
Annie Nominous November 05, 2012 at 04:44 AM
I did check your profile, and I think you resemble Bill Murray...so take that as you wish. Goodnight, McPride.
Bob McBride November 05, 2012 at 04:46 AM
Damn, you looked. You're a sharp one. Like a butter knife, you are. Nighty-nite.
Luke November 05, 2012 at 05:31 AM
Randy, your "trickle" is even thinner than the guy who owns that house. Size matters, and the tax base is not satisfied with you, by comparison.
Steve ® November 05, 2012 at 05:51 AM
Bren - when is the demo scheduled for your house and farm field contracted to be installed in its replacement?
sparky November 05, 2012 at 05:58 AM
If I am going to spend that kind of money for a house I know one thing for sure, it will be on a lake up north with walleyes and muskies in the lake. Whyis it up for sale? Lost their day care job?
Luke November 05, 2012 at 12:14 PM
@Steve Apparently she thinks farmland is worth 1 million per acre. She makes a lot of scents (peeyou).

Annie Nominous - wow, you really need to get some hobbies and interests. Looking over your comment history, you are on patch morning, noon, night, and middle of the night, and again in the morning. No one is taking you seriously. You are a troll. You are doing nothing but wasting your time on the site. Your are not changing any minds with with your unoriginal ideas and comments. Get out and do something with your life. Sorry you are so miserable.
Randy1949 November 05, 2012 at 04:23 PM
Is that so, Luke? Do you have a bigger one?
H.E. Pennypacker November 05, 2012 at 04:32 PM
Randall is quite ignorant of most matters that involve economics. We need more people like this building and owning homes this size. Randall, just because you live in filth and squalor doesn't mean we all should.
Annie Nominous November 05, 2012 at 04:51 PM
@ alt ideas needed - seriously? I work two jobs, run a household, and I type very fast. And I do have a hobby, which is reading whenever I have a free moment, including local and all other news. Your post is so typical of a liberal - full of hate, judgement, and resentment because you cannot support your arguments with facts. By the way, you have an extensive history of comments. I understand you are very stressed out about tomorrow's election.
Randy1949 November 05, 2012 at 04:52 PM
I don't know who this 'Randall' is, Pennypacker, but I know a lot more about property taxes than you might think. And I bet mine is bigger than YOURS too.
Randy1949 November 05, 2012 at 04:58 PM
@Bren -- Obviously farmland brings in much less tax revenue than a crown of McMansions built on half-acre lots. So there's a lot of pressure from municipalities like Brookfield to urge the farmers out to increase their tax base. It's short-sighted, because the new construction ends up costing them more in services than the farmland did. Sometimes i don't think the new property taxes make up for it. And once the green-space is gone, it's gone.
Steve ® November 05, 2012 at 09:13 PM
►Bren and Randy◄ I just checked back in from running a business all day, trickling down my created wealth and solving a lot of problems with third party technology. I am surprised but have not been informed when you both plan on demolishing your homes and restoring them to farmland. I await your response and thank you in advance. Your determination to this is a credit to our entire organization. Best Regards- Steve ®
Steve ® November 05, 2012 at 09:15 PM
You should give more since you want to force everyone else to. Lead by example. Prove that higher tax rates work better than consumer spending.
Randy1949 November 05, 2012 at 09:24 PM
@Steve --So sorry to make you waste your valuable time a a job creator to come here to chide us. How would you know where and how I live? Don't assume and make a fool of yourself.
Randy1949 November 05, 2012 at 09:29 PM
LOL -- I think mine is bigger than yours too, Steve, judging from your reaction.
Bren November 05, 2012 at 10:06 PM
Luke, I was referring to the land's value for food production specifically. I'll also add that construction increases ground temperature. So I'm female, eh? ; ) Steve, my lot isn't quite large enough to make a dent in the global food chain, sorry. And the house is historic. That's why I agree with Bob about the value of true architecture vs. ...this. If helpful, I did encourage my father to sell acreage to the DNR instead of the developer dogging his heels a few years back. It's part of a preserve now. As a traditional Republican, land conservation is very important to him. Also, I thought you "sold" your business. No? In that case, do you try to pressure your employees into voting GOP? Just curious.
Steve ® November 06, 2012 at 05:28 AM
Either is this lot. Typical liberal hypocritical statement. Keep burning your food supply in your fuel too right?
Steve ® November 06, 2012 at 05:29 AM
How much every year to you pay over and above?
Randy1949 November 06, 2012 at 02:28 PM
Same as you, Steve.
alt ideas needed November 07, 2012 at 04:38 AM
Haha Annie. Everyone is so impressed that you work two part time jobs and you can clean your own house. Well done. Keep up the good work. Your shining personality brightens everyones day.
KAY KRISTIN November 17, 2012 at 07:20 PM
Wow...all I can say is if you can afford it and want it, God bless ya, go for it. As for myself -- I think I'd get lost in there!!! But it is impressive...
