Stately Tudor Beauty!


Welcome to this exquisite Tudor-style home located  in Bryant. Neighborhood. Built in 1937, this beauty has 4 bedrooms, 2 fireplaces, and an attached garage. Plus it has all the historic architectural charm AND modern renovations that you’re looking for!

Walk up to this 1930s stucco and brick home with its original solid oak front door. Don’t miss the antique leaded glass and brass fittings. As you step into the living room, note the honey-colored hardwood floors, the high ceilings, and the tall windows. The arched doorways with decorative side alcoves and a classic fireplace with a mantle add to the vintage charm.

The dining room has original corner built-ins. Additionally the main floor boasts two spacious bedrooms and a bathroom. Don’t miss the original linen cupboard, cedar closet, laundry chute and the rotary phone stand with a tiny cupboard for a telephone book.

As you head upstairs, prepare yourselves for the large main bedroom with a BALCONY that overlooks the lovely back garden. There’s also a 4th bedroom, another FULL bath, and bonus living spaces that you could convert into a library or hobby areas. The closets are deep and have so much storage space.

If you enjoy cooking, then you’re in for a treat. This kitchen is beautifully designed with granite counter tops, and newer appliances. Clean up is quick as the lovely tile floor makes it very convenient to mop. The kitchen is also quite a bit larger and wider  than those found in most South Minneapolis homes; you could potentially fit in a small island if you chose to.

Slightly off the kitchen is bonus space that’s currently being used as an office. Shut your eyes and imagine if you will a small eat-in kitchenette or pantry space.

The brightly-lit back porch is cleverly designed to be a mud-room, or three-season space.

The basement includes a partially finished room with a 2nd fireplace that could be an art room, den or office. It has so much equity-building potential. This house also boasts an ATTACHED one-car garage; a rarity in South Minneapolis.

Should you choose to call this house your home, you will be conveniently close to everything fun that South Minneapolis has to offer. Stroll around McRae Park, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park and Phelps Field Park. Sip coffee at Heather’s Cafe or Sovereign Grounds, and lunch at Turtle Bread. Grab a frosty glass of beer at Town Hall Tap. How about a sweet icy treat from Pumphouse Creamery? Pssst, their seasonal rhubarb flavor is a huge hit with the sellers of this house.

All the ideal bus routes are near by. Walk and bike score is a perfect 10.

In short, you’ll celebrate the South Minneapolis lifestyle. Are you the one to call it home?
