Dream Home on the Market


Dream Home on the Market: May 2017

Here’s your opportunity to call the historic Donaldson Mansion home.

This 1906 home is truly a dream home. With beautiful craftsmanship and details, each room is its own work of art. It was originally built for Lawrence Donaldson of Donaldson Department Store in Minneapolis. Designed by Kees and Colburn architecture, also known for other buildings in Minneapolis including the Loring Theater and the Grain Exchange Building, this is your chance to own, and live in, a piece of history.

Check out the unique features and stunning details below.

7 beds // 9 baths // 12,195 sqft // $2,995,000

Within the past years the home has been restored and modern amenities have been added including a home theater, in-floor heat and sound system. Each room has own unique features, and with 10 fireplaces, you’ll be sure to find one that you can cozy up in during the cold Minnesota winters.

The living area features beautiful woodwork including carved corbels representing the four seasons and pillars of oak and mahogany. The fireplace in the living room is carved Minnesota pink travertine. There is even a fireplace in the large dining room. The master bedroom also features a fireplace and a full bath and large walk-in closet.

The carriage house feature four garage stalls (or carriage stalls I suppose) and a full apartment that has also been renovated to include a new kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a full living area. Quite a nice space to have above the garage, but if you need to get back to the main home, there is an underground tunnel to get you there.

Not only is the inside beautiful and full of historic craftsman details, the nearly one acre property is surrounded by beautiful gardens and landscaping. You’ll feel like you’re in your own private countryside right in the middle of the city!
