A Private Glimpse

A Private Glimpse

Milwaukee boasts several remarkable landmarks about which many residents and most visitors wonder. Structures including the Tripoli Shrine Center, Pabst Mansion, and North Point Water Tower have long histories of appearing both majestic and mysterious. Also on the list of charming curiosities, is the beautiful castle-like building on Bradford Avenue on Milwaukee’s East Side. For 138 years, Eastcastle Place senior living community has been an enigmatic gem in Milwaukee.


Eastcastle Place is a Life Plan Community, offering independent living, assisted living, memory care, short-term rehabilitation, and long-term skilled care. The beautiful campus of Eastcastle Place boasts diverse apartment homes within both its Historic and Contemporary Buildings. There are 24 different floor plans comprising the 82 independent living apartments; each model is unique with distinct features and upscale amenities.


Eastcastle Place management has decided to invite area residents to get a glimpse of a few of its incomparable apartment homes through its new video series Inside the Castle. Weekly episodes will feature apartment homes that are seldom available for personal viewing. “One of the most appealing features of Eastcastle Place is that it’s a true reflection of the East Side neighborhood, which is vibrant and eclectic,” said Tyler Gudex, executive director. “We are pleased to invite prospective residents to a virtual glimpse of some of our apartment homes.”


Eastcastle Place’s Victorian Gothic style Historic Building dates back to 1892. It was designed by renowned Milwaukee architects Henry Koch and Herman Esser. Within its doors are marvels, including a staircase with Cyril Colnik metalwork, and Tiffany memorial stained glass windows. The 23 apartment homes in the Historic Building are each unique, some including features such as built-in bookcases, beautiful woodwork, columns, balconies, lead glass windows, and double-facing fireplaces.


The Contemporary Building, built in 2006, has 12 unique floor plans of one and two-bedroom apartments. They boast upscale finishes, beautiful detailing, and special features such as fireplaces, balconies, and eye-catching turrets.


Six apartments will be open for virtual viewing over the next six weeks. For an invitation to a private virtual viewing, visit www.EastcastlePlace.com/contact.
