St Paul, Minnesota, United States
My renovated, 120-year-old home sits on a very quiet, tree-lined street in one of Saint Paul’s most desirable neighborhoods. Just two blocks away is Linwood Park, and Grand Avenue’s shops and restaurants are an easy walk. The house has a large and tranquil study on the main floor that is very bright, with extensive custom-built wood bookshelves. This would be perfect for a faculty member, couple, or small family on a one-year sabbatical. It would also be excellent for those in the first year of a new appointment who are considering purchasing a home but want to become familiar with the Twin Cities housing market before doing so. The house is available because I have a fellowship to spend the coming academic year in Jerusalem. Highlights • Great location! Minutes to Macalester College or Saint Thomas, Saint Kate’s, Concordia, and William Mitchell (near Lexington/Saint Clair). • Alternatively, just a 17 minute easy drive from comfortable home to Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota (where I teach); still shorter to Saint Paul campus; never any difficulties in winter • Quiet, safe street with little traffic (not a through street), but only 3 blocks from access to I-35 E and/or Ayd Mill Parkway; 5 minutes to downtown Saint Paul; 10 minutes to airport. • Close to good schools and shopping; great neighbors. • Stone-and-wood shake exterior, newly painted. • South-facing windows give the living room, study, and master bedroom sunny dispositions. • Recently refinished red oak floors. • Tall ceilings and natural woodwork, including crown molding and staircase. • Huge living room with working fireplace • Two beautiful studies. Large one on first floor, especially bright (windows on three sides) with custom built-in book shelves. French doors open onto back yard. • Then also a newly renovated second floor study; great writing and reading space. • Freshly painted kitchen with gas range, dishwasher, lots of natural light, and good storage. • Convenient laundry area in upstairs bathroom. • Extensive landscaping. • House is pet- and smoke-free. • 2-car garage at back (access from rear alley); additional storage in tuck-under garage at front of house • Fully furnished, with owner’s books and personal items stored in basement.
