Nicollet Island Greek Revival Renovation, MN
(Select image on right to enlarge)
This classic Greek Revival was originally built in 1900 close to the U of M and moved to Nicollet Island in the 90’s. The renovation of this home included restoring the exterior, adding a mudroom that recreated an original back porch and remodeling the interior that included a kitchen and master bedroom suite.
Every inch counted in this home and every detail was vetted to fit the period. The classic frieze and corner pilasters were restored. The front picket fence was scaled from historic examples to provide a friendly buffer. On the interior kitchen cabinets were designed to accommodate original window sizing and layout.
The hutch was designed to reduce the massing of the cabinets and add vintage appeal. Carrera marble for the counters and a custom spice shelf on either side of the stove add historic appeal.
