An imposing red brick Richardsonian Romanesque residence on a 0.55 acre property in Saint Paul, Minnesota can be yours for $1.7 million. The 10,780 square foot residence was designed by William Willcox and built in 1884 for newspaper magnate Frederick Driscoll. According to Placeography, the original frame front porch was completely removed and replaced with a new stone entrance in 1910. A large port cochere was also added to the south side of the mansion in later years. When Driscoll relocated to Chicago in 1900, he sold the red brick mansion to lumber baron Frederick Weyerhaeuser. Over the course of its 136-year history, the structure has served many different uses such as housing, public groups and the one-time headquarters for the Indianhead Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The property is currently being used a private residence with six bedrooms, eight full and one half bathrooms. There is an elegant marble foyer with fireplace, a stunning staircase and an ideal floor plan for grand entertaining. The property also includes an attached two-car garage, large deck and gardens. The Driscoll-Weyerhaeuser House is on the market for $1.7 million with Krista Wolter of Coldwell Banker.
