Located in the heart of Summit Hill, this five-bedroom, five-bathroom home was designed and built to blend in seamlessly with its historic neighbors. The stately home is just blocks from Summit and Grand Avenues, several colleges, restaurants, and more. Featuring a three-car garage and rough-in for a future elevator, the $1.5 million home truly presents new construction disguised as a sensitive remodel. Detail Homes designed modern living in the form of an open concept floor plan, efficient systems, and high-end finishes.
The pared back traditional style of the home, crafted by Kipling House Interiors, features all the classic elements of turn-of-the-century architecture with subdued and restrained accents. Unlike other spec houses being built, the finishes and materials are unique and have a point of view, as seen in the rich paint colors, modern light fixtures, and furniture. Some of the most enticing aspects of the 4,495-square-foot home include the Art Deco-inspired glass backsplash, the antique English campaign chest used as the powder vanity, the inlaid black marble “rug” in the Jack and Jill bathroom, and the Downtown Abbey-inspired laundry room. “The goal was to make this new construction home look like a historic remodel for an owner who had style,” state Detail Homes owners Ben Richter and Chris Van Klei. “In a city with so much charm, a concerted effort was made to provide St. Paul buyers with high quality, unique design. This house makes a statement from the front portico onward.”
