Kris and Ben's Victorian Masterpiece
Located in the heart of Lyndale, just steps from all Minneapolis has to offer, stands Kris and Ben's 1902 Victorian. This stately 4 square has been lovingly preserved and maintained for 20 years, offering a rare glimpse at some the most storied architecture our neighborhoods have to offer.
Kris and Ben spent the past month going through Rare Form's rigorous design-to-sell process. Their efforts shine as their home is showcase worthy for all who will walk through it.
True to form - 3132 Harriet has classic Victorian porches on front and rear.
Original architectural detail has been preserved for generations to come with impeccable enamel work throughout the home. From doors to leaded glass accent windows and large ornate pillars - no detail was left untouched during turn of the century home building.
The main floor houses a beautiful study/music room - a wonderful space elevated by built in book cases, large windows and original sconces.
The dining room is a masterpiece with beautiful woodwork, original built in, pocket doors from the living room and a classic original tiled fireplace.
Kris and Ben remodeled the kitchen in 2002 bringing in the same maple flooring and incorporating the same enamel work and craftsman details while adding modern functionality in cabinetry and appliances. New windows and structural work will keep this open kitchen in use for years to come.
The second floor boasts 4 large bedrooms, a great fit for long term growth. Maple flooring throughout, fresh paint, and an airy staircase bring light into these living areas. The bathroom was updated with all new tile, in floor heat, and an upgraded vanity.
The 3rd floor is a completely finished, inviting, and architecturally appealing attic. An attached bathroom and gas fireplace make this suite a fabulous fit for both master or guest accommodations.
The basement brings great additional living area with a large open space perfect for multi-functional use and family bonding time.
The backyard is Kris and Ben's pride and joy - their favorite part of the home. They created a beautiful sanctuary enclosed by a privacy fence to make the most of our Minnesota summers. With stunning perennial gardens, maturing trees, patio pavers, and a serene water feature - outdoor living will be a top priority of 3132's new owners.
