Quality Updates in Foursquare

Mary Johnson's father, AG Johnson, a MN State Senator, had this Four Square home built as a wedding gift for his daughter. He had another home using the same design built for his son in Winthrop. A forward thinking man who believed fireplaces wasted heat and were dangerous had a gravity heat furnace installed in the basement.

This home is believed to be the first home in the area with indoor plumbing. The hutches in the Dining Room and the Kitchen Hall were built and shipped from Sweden. The home was remodeled in the 1920's with the main level floor plan being opened up, two front porches added and a game room. Terrazzo floors were added in the front porches.

Many more recent updates have taken place including a beautiful, modern kitchen with granite, upper level Family Room with access to large patio. The home has been used as a Quilt and Retreat House and has so much potential as either a single family home or business opportunity. What an outstanding place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, to a more serene and private getaway of your own.
