Fab Midcentury Modern Home in Wisconsin Includes 1950s Furniture for $1M

This river-view retreat is ready for a new owner to enjoy.

Built in 1955 and listed for $1 million, the fab pad in Fountain City, WI, recently underwent a major renovation.

And there’s no need to worry about decorating the place: All the furnishings come with the 2,540-square-foot home.

“The midcentury style is really going to pop, because the seller is an aficionado with collecting pieces and has really curated the home with the pieces that are perfect for it,” says listing agent Noel Krueger, with Edina Realty – Grand Avenue.

The retro residence sits on four acres, and many of the rooms have views of the Mississippi River below.

“When I’m there, I can just kind of sit and look out the window or be up on one of the balconies or decks, and it’s just so peaceful and relaxing to look over the water and see all the different birds and wildlife,” Krueger says.

The seller, who snapped the place up in 2020 for $359,900, is just the third owner.

“I first helped him purchase it, and it actually needed quite a bit of love,” Krueger explains. “The seller invested a lot of time and energy and funds in the last few years. He saw the potential and was really able to bring it out.”

The three-bedroom, three-bath home is made mostly of concrete and steel.

“It’s a real solid and well-built home,” Krueger says, adding that neighbors call it the “bunker house” because of the construction materials and the fact it is built into a stone wall.

In addition to selecting the perfect period furnishings, the seller remodeled the bathrooms, restored floors, replaced decking, upgraded plumbing and electrical, and more.
