A multimillion-dollar modern man cave in Milwaukee snagged a ton of clicks and easily won the crown of this week’s most popular home on realtor.com®.
If a SoCal transplant desired a lair near Lake Michigan, this would be the place. A glance at Google Street View shows just how much the sleek home sticks out in a sea of traditional homes lining the block.
Spanning three stories and offering 6,000 square feet of living space, it’s also a very spacious place.
No, it’s not the kind of home where you’d want to raise a toddler—there would be fingerprints all over the glass railing—but for a buyer looking for an unabashedly masculine address to impress, this is the spot.
Besides the mod in Milwaukee, you also clicked on an opulent home in New Orleans, a Beverly Hills mansion marketed as a private wellness retreat, and a bespoke beach house in North Carolina.
