11221 North Parkview Drive

Price:  $489,000

Charming Modern Craftsman on 1 acre in the Mequon Estates Subdivision.  Includes 105' of lush frontage on the Milwaukee River. The house is not in the flood plain and does not require flood insurance (very rare for a home on water frontage). The first floor has an open plan with huge south-facing windows. The design of the home eliminated formal rooms, thus the remaining rooms are very large and bright. The living room, dining room, kitchen (solid surface countertops), office and all 3 bedrooms have south-facing windows which creates a passive solar heat gain in the winter, while overhangs shade the windows in the summer. The 2nd story has unstained staggered cedar shake siding, while the first floor has hardiplank (cement fiber) siding for ultra low maintenance.

The house is extremely efficient, with R50 insulation in the ceilings, R19 in the walls, low E argon filled Anderson windows, insulated aluminum and glass commercial garage doors and a high efficiency furnace and air conditioner. The HVAC has 3 zones (upper, lower, bonus room) allowing extremely efficient and controlled heating and cooling.  The first floor also has hydronic heating on a separate thermostat, while the garage has a gas hookup for a heater and thermostat.
