This historic 1855 home, one of the oldest in Milwaukee, is for sale

On this week's Urban Spelunking podcast, we're live on-site for an update at the 1855 Isaac Leister House, 11142 W. Bradley Rd, in the former town of Granville.

I went along with OnMilwaukee's Bobby Tanzilo to meet contractors and new owners D’Angelo McNair, Brandon Clark and Barton Clark of All Service Contracting, along with Karen Samuelson who grew up in the home.

The house has been renovated while preserving as much of the original character as possible, McNair says. Field stones making up the walls and foundation have been cleaned and uncovered, while original millwork has been carefully polished and restored. Meanwhile, contractors reformatted and expanded the kitchen, while attic has been converted to a media room with 6 stadium seats.

Now, at the time of recording, the house is for sale.

Listen to this week's episode for an live, on-site update including a conversation with McNair and Samuelson. We've also included the original podcast episode for even more background, as well as Bobby's complete story at
