From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally friendly abodes, southeastern Wisconsin is chock-full of one-of-a-kind homes for sale. Each week, Patch highlights one "Wow House" that caught our attention.

This week, it's a home on Highland Preserve Court in the Town of Lisbon in Waukesha County.

This custom-designed, exposed ranch home is 7,820 square feet and backs up to a 140-acre preserve for views of a pond and wooded privacy.

It features a dramatic atrium with a 28-foot-tall ceiling and stately pillars. The home also has rosewood, bamboo, Travertine and marble floors that are heated for comfort.

This five-bedroom, five-bath home also includes a theater room, a family room, and excercise room and a large game room with custom wet bar.

Built in 2004, the asking price for this home is $847,500. It's being offered by Realtor Victoria Hren at RE/Max Realty 100. To schedule a showing, contact Hren at (262) 250-8136.

This house's highest assessment during the peak in 2007, was $717,000 and it's current "estimated fair market value" is $647,000. I'm not sure if Patch gets a commission percentage on the sale for advertising this, but it is really not fair to call this an $847k house because it is listed at that price. As for the square footage, it is certainly nice and finished well, but just because someone asks a price based on a realtors suggestion, certainly does not mean it is worth close to that much. Realtors need to do a better job informing their clients of realistic prices and sale expectations.

Obama hates the owner if this house.

One day soon, there will be a knock at the door and a family, with bags in hand, will introduce themselves to the owner as ready to move into the second floor, to get their fair share of this home at no charge ... thanks to the Divider-In-Chief.

I think it is a nice house. 847,500 won't buy you that in Shorewood though. Seems like they have a lot of land. Assessments are higher than fair market right now. If someone wants to pay for it and can pay for it, why not? Isn't that what life is all about? I don't agree with lending money to people that may not be able to pay it back but a lot of us were not prepared for the recession. Everyone has the best of intentions but things happen. As for demographics, people should be able to live where they want to, regardless of race or judgement.

The only time I will buy a home is when property taxes go down in wisconsin its to expensive here to own a house even though wisconsin has great views :)

Have you been inside? How would you know what its worth? Maybe the assessor never went trough the house and based the assessment on an average. I love it when people who don't have a clue start posting.

"if this house"?

Of this house. Come on not that hard to figure out.
Rose Lover February 21, 2013 at 07:51 PM
So right it wasn't hard to figure out 'if' meant 'of'. What is hard to figure out is how you know Obama hates these home owners, or home owner.
C. Sanders March 02, 2013 at 09:11 PM
@Rose Lover ... Having trouble figuring out why Obama doesn't like these homeowners? Purchase price $847,000 is out of reach of the middle class and falls squarely in the lap of all those nasty folks that have gone to school, worked hard, established successful careers, and/or started businesses .... And haven't paid their "fair share" when examined through the ideology of the Divider-In-Chief.
