If your looking for something to do this weekend and are into visiting historic homes, be sure to check out the Minneapolis and St. Paul Home Tour. There’s even a house in the Cleveland Neighborhood on the tour! Here’s the description of this magnificent home from the tour brochure:
This home is a perfect example of a classic with great bones but victimized by neglect and bad remodeling decisions. The exterior had great appeal, with stucco and Tudor architectural features, but the second floor was falling apart, uninhabitable; the “octopus” gravity furnace, broken and inefficient, consumed the entire basement; and the kitchen was unusable. We salvaged carpet-hidden maple floors, as well as fantastic cove-mouldings. We brought this beauty back to life by remodeling the second floor into a spacious bedroom, with skylights, bamboo floors, plenty of storage, and spray-foam insulation. A designer gourmet kitchen fit into a modest space, and the basement is now comfortable, warm, and dry, with a spa-like bathroom, full bedroom, and family room. Now boasting infloor radiant heat that’s 97 percent-plus energy-efficient, this is the perfect house!
Take a visit on Saturday or Sunday!
