$2,750,000 | Built 1920 | 4 Beds | 4.5 Baths | 4,732 Sq. Ft. | 5.41 Acres
Nestled on 5.41 wooded acres along the St. Croix River in Hastings, Minnesota is a truly spectacular historic residence that very few people even know exist. Hidden within the thick forest, the 4,732 square foot stone mansion looks more like a castle than a home. Mediterranean and Gothic design elements are evident both inside and out. It was designed by architect Ellerbe Becket in 1920 and this is the first time in over sixty years that it has been available for purchase! A locally quarried limestone exterior and red tile roof set the tone for what’s to be found inside, from marble floors to hand-carved woodwork, the interiors showcase truly spectacular craftsmanship and detail. The formal living room includes walls of windows, an ornate beamed ceiling and substantial stone fireplace. A multi-story stone staircase winding in a large tower leads to a circular lookout tower opening to a large rooftop terrace. There is more than 4,700 square feet over several levels with four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The residence was built to take advantage of the views toward the St. Croix River and comes complete with your own private beach – perfect for boating, swimming and entertaining! The property first listed in 2018 for $3.6 million and was recently reduced to $2.75 million. It’s listed with Teri Kampmeyer of Coldwell Banker.
