Awe-inspiring Congdon home rich in Duluth history! This Renaissance Revival home was designed by Fredrick Perkins, who also designed the Sinclair Lewis house, the Duluth Women's Club, and the Tweed House. Built for George A. French, owner of the French and Bassett Co and interior decorator for Glensheen, this home has had only two owners. The main floor features a grand foyer with ornate moldings and plasterwork; a library/den with chestnut paneling and a fireplace surrounded by Mercer tiles; a bright, spacious living room with detailed woodwork and marble fireplace; a sunny garden room with four sets of double glass doors leading out to the gardens on the mall; an amazing American walnut dining room with original German sterling silver chandelier and pendants, plus a fireplace; two spacious butlers pantries; and an updated kitchen. On the upper levels, you'll find six large bedrooms and the original tiled bathrooms in mint condition. Outside is the original garage with caretaker's quarters above, formal gardens and a unique circular tea house. Truly one of Duluth's finest, this stunning home was built for entertaining. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of history!
