Donald Grieb - 118 West Bergen Drive, Fox Point

118 West Bergen Drive, Fox Point

This particular house was built in 1957 for Ralph and Tillie Jankins. The Jankins had commissioned the young and upcoming architect Donald Grieb to do the house, prior to the start of the Milwaukee Domes project that Grieb is famously associated with. It is a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath house with 2,800 square feet of living space. It features vaulted ceilings and expansive use of glass to overlook the generous prairie-like backyard. The original owners recently sold the property in 2011.
