A Washington County landmark
is for sale. Isadora’s Bed and Breakfast, 724 Beech St., has
been listed by ReMax Realty at $424,000. “We bought it in 1999
from Monica and Lawrence Plaskan and we opened it as a bed and
breakfast in July 2007,” owner Darrell Ziebarth said. The
4,503square-foot, Queen Anne-style home dates to 1893 and
features a grand staircase, large foyer, original ornate crown
molding, and oak and butternut floors.
The home was built by Steven F. Mayer for his wife Isadora
(Pick). According to newspaper articles from 1893, the home was
said to be one of the “most convenient in the city.” Archives
also show the home had the “first indoor flushing toilet in West
Bend,” and steam heat, which 'was piped in from the West Bend
Brewing Co. on Main Street.”
The home has six bedrooms, five and a half baths, a pair of
fireplaces and impeccable landscaping with a wrap around
veranda. Ziebarth said they are selling to move closer to
grandkids in Waukesha.
“We haven’t had any offers yet, and we’re hoping to move by
July, but we’ll see what happens,” Ziebarth said.
