Sold! Historic Duluth Stone Carriage House Was Priced At $825,500

Duluth is filled with historic properties and another chance to own one recently arrived. Anyone in Duluth who talked about "that pretty stone cottage" was likely referring to the cottage that sits at 1600 Vermilion Road.

Renowned architect Fredrick German designed this historic property and it was once a carriage house for the neighboring mansion, which was built for lumber baron John Millen in 1912. Although it has been remodeled or refurbished for today's lifestyle, it retains much of its original character.

The iconic landmark features a majestic stone arch that welcomes you and all guests. Once inside the 1,900-square-foot cottage, there's a surprisingly open-concept floor plan on the main level. They've truly maximized this space, which features a primary suite, an ensuite, and even a unique lofted level.

The craftsmanship is from a bygone era, with stone walls so thick, you hear no sounds from the outside. While the cottage features a smaller footprint, it's certainly a case of quality of quantity and the new owner will find it a perfect fit.

It originally went on the market in July 2023. It was removed from the market in August 2023, but on March 5, 2024, it was once again listed for sale for $825,500, after owners added an additional lot.

On May 14, 2024, the property was officially sold, and the new owners got a bit of a deal.

Take another look through the historic property, which features 2 bedrooms and 3 baths and you'll also see the final sale price with the final photo.
