1423 Chelmsford Street began its life as an award winning “Model Village House”, designed by noted architect Harry Firminger and built for University of Minnesota Professor R. C. Ashby. The house appeared in “St. Paul’s Architecture – a History” where the authors stated “That [Model Village House] design merits mention here because it combines Prairie School with English cottage motifs in a manner more akin to the overt geometries of Art Deco than to the picturesque tradition to which its materials belong. Its bewildering array of window shapes and sizes also anticipates the eccentric fenestration scheme of Firminger’s Moderne house 25 years in the future”.
1423 Chelmsford now has become one of the most ideally located, spacious and truly interesting homes in North St. Anthony Park. And it is in VERY good condition. From period details and whimsical spaces to a deep wooded lot with mature gardens, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath has character, style and lots of surprises for every member of the family.
Location, location, location…! This home is not what you expect it to be, so don’t miss it! It is likely to sell very quickly.
