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.
