What looks like it started out as a small but elegant frame home in the 1930s has receiving a thorough overhaul, but and likely an addition, but it maintains the feel and many of the features of its original era.
The two-story, 3,149-square-foot home, located in the Rosedale neighborhood near Ramsey Park, has six bedrooms and three bathrooms. Local architect Chuck Krueger pumped up the luxury a bit, but not overly.
There are high end finishes and features throughout, including real wood cabinetry, granite counters, a six-burner commercial stove, a full-size, stainless steel freezer and refrigerator, custom built-ins a huge mudroom with added storage lockers. The house also features a central vacuum and tankless water heater,
There are still plenty of nifty historic (or reproduction) features, including hardwood floors and period-style window frames, that blend well with statement pendant lamps and the like. A stone patio, deck, and grassy yard space continue the fun out back.
The listing helpfully provides photos of rooms staged and unstaged.
The kitchen features real wood cabinets and a six-burner stove.
The home is surrounded by mature foliage, including shade trees.
