About 595 Summit Avenue
Like the famous Park Slope brownstones in Brooklyn, this home is one of eight comprising St Paul’s "Summit Terrace". Arguably, the finest row of brownstones in Minnesota. Designed by Clarence Johnston, architect of Glensheen Mansion, Northrop Auditorium, Walter Library, and many Summit Ave. mansions. Completed in 1889, this home is just two doors east of the F. Scott Fitzgerald home, and was built to last. With up to six bedrooms, it offers elegance, comfort, and attention to detail with features such as high ceilings, hardwood floors with inlay, built-in buffet in large formal dining room, beautiful glass chandeliers, three original tile-surround fireplaces, bay windows, cornice moldings, carved door frames, a grand U-shaped open staircase ascending through three floors, illuminated by a large skylight. There is a full basement, with 9-foot ceilings, giving access to the attached one-car garage, with a deck above and an adjacent, private stone and brick courtyard. Don't miss out!!
