Lowry Hill Historic Home #3

This weeks featured Minneapolis home is located in Lowry Hill at 1712 Mount Curve.

The oldest house on its block, this home was built in 1906. It was built for L. S. Donaldson by Kees and Calburn with obvious influences from the Prairie school of design.

The home has some wonderful architectural details that would cost a fortune to replicate in today's homes. The front porch is absolutely beautiful with its drip molding and ornate trim. The chimneys even have similar drip molding and trim at the top.

The last recorded sale of the homes was in 2000 with a purchase price of $2.825 Million. Taxes alone on the property are around $42,000 per year! But with the unbeatable views, I am sure that is a small price to pay. The home has about 9500 square feet and 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms.
