Beautiful two-story historic home built in 1906 was Designed by well-known Architect Ernest Kennedy. The property is conveniently located in the Lowry Hill and neighborhood, home to the acclaimed Walker Art Center, with contemporary galleries, a cinema and a theater, and the adjacent Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, known for monumental works like the iconic “Spoonbridge and Cherry” by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. Green spaces in the area include the landscaped Loring Park, with sports courts and a pond, and Lowry Park, featuring cascading pools. 

Main House

(PID 2802924310125)

    As you enter 1606 Mount Curve Avenue, you’ll be greeted by the warm foyer showcased by the ornate staircase and woodwork.  To your left, enter the formal dining room ready to host cocktails or dinner parties.  The dining room is adjoined to the kitchen by the butler’s pantry with room for an extensive collection of glassware, china and more. The white kitchen is spacious and appointed for making gourmet creations with abundant storage.  Past the kitchen is the formal living room.  This room has beautiful wood paneling, an ornate fireplace (one of three in the home) and stained-glass windows.  And you can’t miss the stone sun room with its warm tile floors and beautiful vintage windows looking towards the city.
     Upstairs you will find room for everyone, highlighted by two master suites, one with a fireplace and one with a large dressing room plus a large laundry area.  There are also three additional bedrooms including two bedrooms with lofts and a shared bath in the addition over the garage.  Upstairs boasts a total of five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
   The lower level features a family room with egress stained glass windows, a large fireplace and wide plank wood floors.  Along with plenty of storage rooms, there is also a ¾ bath on the lower level. The main house total finished square footage is 5,857.
     The attached two-car garage has a car wash installed in the 80’s.  It has since been disconnected, but the mechanics are still there.
    Make sure you spend some time in the back yard with its skyline views!  The bluff-top patio is the perfect spot for a fire pit and enjoy the outdoors.
