A lovingly restored historic brick home on a 0.34 property in Saint Paul designed by architect Augustus Gauger and built c.1886 for Samuel Dearing has sold for $775,000. The 5,700 square foot home has been painstakingly restored by master renovation specialists and includes period woodwork, elaborate tile work, ornate fireplace mantels and detailled panelling. There is a substantial porte cochere on the east side of the residence, a large attic with numerous windows and exceptional formal rooms with elaborate details. Current owner, Scott Kramer, purchased the elegant residence in 2005 with his wife for $450,000. They embarked on an eleven month renovation, spending upwards of $300,000 updating wiring and plumbing, restoring nine fireplaces and replicating woodwork made of eleven different types of wood. Kramer was given a conditional-use permit to operate a Bed & Breakfast in the residence limiting him no more than two guests in each of the mansion’s six bedrooms and forbidding him from hosting parties and paid events. According to the Star Tribube, Kramer ran into issues with the city when he hosted a large murder-mystery party at the home, reportedly violating his conditional-use permit. The permit was temporarily revoked and eventually reinstated, but Kramer decided to list the historic home and move onto a new venture. The sale included the conditional-use permit opening up possibilities for a new owner.
