Look inside one of Milwaukee's most impressive lakefront mansions

With nine bedrooms and seven bathrooms, sitting on three lakefront acres, the Uihlein Mansion is arguably one of Milwaukee's most opulent.

And it's listed for sale for just under $7 million.

The Whitefish Bay mansion, 5270 N. Lake Dr., boasts more than 13,700 square feet of living space. The entryway opens to a grand staircase leading in two directions; when you reach the top and look up, you'll see a fresco painted on the ceiling, surrounding a glimmering chandelier.

A full movie theater, billiards room, library, staff quarters, home fitness center and grotto are among its amenities, as well as a four car garage and courtyard with fountains.

The mansion, as you may expect, has a connection to Milwaukee's brewing history. It was built in 1918 by Herman A. Uihlein, son Schlitz president Henry Uihlein.

"In something of a twist, the home was the first home erected in the new subdivision created from the land that had previously been home to Pabst’s Whitefish Bay Resort," writes Bobby Tanzilo for OnMilwaukee.

But it turns out, that connection between beer dynasties wasn't the only intersection. In this week's podcast we talk about another Schlitz-Pabst link, plus Bobby shares more from his tour of this incredible mansion, on the market now.
