Intriguing, historic and wonderfully unique! Easily one of the most fascinating living spaces in the Twin Cities. A historic carriage house turned loft is on the market for $949,000. “The 1891 building started life as the carriage house of railroad tycoon J.J. Hill and is located on a cobblestone road across from the J.J. Hill House. Most mansions have carriage houses in the rear, but the bluff on which the Hill house was set made that impossible, so Hill built his carriage house across the street. The property fell into disrepair in the 1970s before it was subdivided into four condos and rehabbed by a local architect,” according to Curbed. Accessed through a deep arched entryway with a massive copper door, the 3,900 square foot multi-level space blends old and new with original brick and stone walls, remodelled bathrooms, original tack cabinets, walls of windows and a great library. The property also includes a fabulous 50′ x 25′ courtyard. It’s on the market for $949,000 with Mary Hardy of Edina Realty.
