Built in 1970, This Rochester Home Is Like Stepping Back In Time
"This house is a living museum that should be purchased on behalf of the city and state or private, registered as a Historic Property with the Department of the Interior and to assure investment and preservation, available to rent for all to experience this one of a kind architectural masterpiece here in Minnesota."
That's a quote from Tyler J. Aug, local director, producer, filmmaker, etc. And if you look at the pictures below, you may just agree 100%.
Built in 1970, it has 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, one of the most unique kitchen/dining room spaces in Rochester, and an enormous amount of natural light and storage. 2,180 square feet on a 2.21-acre lot. According to realtor.com, the house was most recently put on the market for $750,000 on July 15, 2020 and sold on November 13, 2020 for $747,500.
This beautiful home, known as The Grabow House, was designed by John Howe who was Frank Lloyd Wright's chief draftsman for 25 years. The home features a prominent living room with an extensive hearth, a vaulted ceiling with a massive wall of windows perfect for gazing at the wildlife, and an oversized built-in sofa to accommodate entertaining.
The living room opens up with sliding doors leading out to a patio and screened porch surrounded by brick planters that blend the outdoor space with the interior brickwork of the fireplace.
