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 Carriage House, with many of its own charming and distinctive details, can be used as a rental unit or studio and represents a significant financial asset to this property. The rental portion of the Carriage House is currently $13,200/year, and pays for the equivalence of a $100,000 to $144,000 of mortgage expense, depending on the loan term.
