Welcome to this favorite home on historic Summit Avenue! Built in 1881, this stunning brick Victorian Queen Anne Mansion is part of the National Historic District of St. Paul. Architectural details are evident throughout the home: 4 carved and tiled fireplaces, 12' high ceilings, leaded glass windows, wood paneled walls, wood inlay floors, original light fixtures and billiards room and much more. With over 6,000 square feet of finished living space on 3 levels, and with substantial renovations throughout, it is indeed a special place to live.

Magnificent gardens and multiple patios abound on this corner lot, which is conveniently located to shopping and restaurants nearby, plus within easy driving distance to both downtowns.

The residence includes a separate Carriage House which is both a 1,100 square foot, renovated apartment and the 2 car garage for the main house. The Carriage House currently rents for $1,250 per month with the resulting cash flow covering mortgage values of $110,000 to $155,000 depending on term. In essence, the true price for 495 Summit Avenue is between $1.54M and $1.58M when the cash benefits of the Carriage House are considered. No other house currently for sale on Summit Avenue has an income-producing Carriage House. More financial details are available upon request.
