Wonderful opportunity to own a piece of Minnesota history on Lake of the Isles – the Frank M. Mapes home, built for the son of Cream of Wheat founder Emery Mapes, designed by Harry Wild Jones. A Craftsman villa built of brick, steel, tile and reinforced concrete with so many original details still intact and ready for the next chapter in its story.
Gracious public spaces featuring velvet wallcoverings, oak herringbone floors, leaded glass windows, terracotta tile floors, and functional rooms like large kitchen, breakfast room and butler’s pantry ready for modern renovations. Second floor features 6 bedrooms with Jack and Jill baths, large sunroom. Lower level with large family room with fireplace and wet bar. A once in a generation chance to reimagine this landmark home.
