Do you want an original, look here! This home is NOT a cookie cutter.The Nelson Hall House in Saint Cloud

723 SE 10th Street Saint Cloud MN is a One of a Kind.

Seriously, how many homes will you find that have been in the same family since the 1800s? Or better yet that have a glass enclosed wine cellar access in the kitchen? Really this home must be seen. I will do my best to describe it, but as you will begin to appreciate, you have got to see 723 10th Street St. Cloud in person.

723 SE 10th Street Saint Cloud MN is for saleAs you pull up to this large 2+ story historic yellow brick home on the southeast side of St. Cloud you know that this is the original home in the area. We understand from the owner that when it was built in 1882 you could see the Mississippi River from the covered porch. As the neighbors built their homes and the view disappeared the owners deceided to build their own massive detached garage with a workshop. The drive to the garage is not connected to the cobblestone circle drive-through in front of the impressive home.

723 10th Street South East Saint Cloud MN The main entry on the south side has a foyer with one of the staricases leading to the 2nd floor. As you walk through the foyer you will immediatly notice the completely updated kitchen. Completely updated is a bit of an understatement, as this kitchen had no expense spared in it's remodel. From the custom refrigerator that matches the custom cabinets to the granite countertops and the built in range top with ceiling mounted hood fan you know that the previous owners bought the best. My pictures of the glass end cabinet, that gives you a peek-a boo view into the wine cellar, is a feature that I have never seen in my over 27 years of showing homes.

Sunroom at the Nelson Hall house in Saint Cloud for saleThen you have the sun room/ breakfast area that opens up to the patio and deck with multiple built in shelves and storage on the one wall. If you go the other direction out of the one of a kind kitchen you enter a massive dining room space and a very formal living room. Further beyond these rooms is a very interesting library/den. Ok think 70's only more modern, The massive fireplace is set in a sunken conversation pit with built-in cushioned bench seating.

Glass peek a boo into the wine cellarOn the other side of the formal living room is the entry to the 2nd foyer that has another staricase leading up to the 2nd floor where there are 3+ bedrooms. One bedroom is set up as a master complete with a full bath (one is small and would make a great nursery or craft/hobby room (it does have a closet) and another full kitchen, a family room complete with a vaulted ceiling and a loft area. If you head up the staricase to the 3rd story you enter another bedroom that has a secret passage behind one of the walls to get to the crows nest/loft area. Beyond the loft area is more space that could be used as a studio or for loads of extra storage (not fully finished).

What a neat house!  My daughter would be all over this one -- you'd have a definite sale if it were in NC, or if she moved to Minnesota!

Hi Bob & Carolin, Thanks!

Tony & Darcy, It is incredible on the inside you would not know that the home was from the 1800's, and the fact that it is basically a one owner home is so funny.

Hi Susan, People are surprised by what they find in the home, the 40,000 kitchen upgrade was done out of sheer joy for the owner and it is not something that you would normally see in this kind of a home, or in this price range.

Hi Tish, If she makes a trip here and it is still on the market I would be happy to show it to her as she is your daughter. This home has been a curiosity for the area and the open house had record numbers of people through, basically they all just wanted a peek. Before the open the Nelson Hall House had not ever been opened to the public.

Gotta love a home with all the history and none of the work!

This definitely is not a "Cloneonial" Great job of featuring this unique historic property. Would love to see a photo of this area, "..the massive fireplace is set in a sunken conversation pit with built-in cushioned bench seating."

  Hope you find that one special buyer soon.
