A 1936 Georgian Revival estate in St. Paul, Minnesota, has come on the market asking $1.85 million.
The home was built by the Hamm family, owners of the St. Paul-based
Brewing Company, according to the listing. The current owners, James and
purchased the home in 1992 for $575,000, according to property records. They were not immediately available for comment.
Sitting on nearly two acres, the 10,914-square-foot eight-bedroom home was once known as “the limo house” and was the site of frequent parties, according to the listing. The home has numerous living and entertaining spaces, including a living room with a fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that lead out onto the property, as well as a wood-paneled game room with a fireplace, and an in-ground backyard pool with a multi-level deck.
Hardwood floors are featured throughout the home, and a spacious open kitchen with windows and counter seating leads into a breakfast nook with wall-to-wall windows and doors that open out onto the backyard.
A sunny formal dining room features floor-to-ceiling windows as well, and a dramatic spiral staircase leads to the upper level and living quarters. The home also includes two offices, a basement gym and wine cellar, and the backyard is equipped with an outdoor dining area as well as a grill and pizza oven, according to photos.
Designed by architect
the home’s stately brick facade is offset by manicured grounds and an authentic English garden.
The sellers have put thoughtful upkeep and updates to the property, said
of Lakes Sotheby’s International Realty, who has the listing.
“The luxury market is booming in St. Paul,” Mr. Lynch told Mansion Global. “In 2019 we saw 15 sales over $1 million, and in the first four months of 2022 we have already surpassed that number. The way people live in their homes has changed.”
Mr. Lynch added, “The buyers at the highest end of the market are looking for more space, multiple home offices, outdoor kitchens and pools.”
The Star Tribune first reported the listing for the property, which came on the market May 6.
German immigrant Theodore Hamm established Hamm’s Brewery in 1865, according to the company’s website, and at one point had breweries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Baltimore and Houston in addition to its St. Paul flagship. The company is well known for its mascot, the Hamm’s beer bear as well as its jingle, “From the Land of Sky-Blue Water.” Hamm’s is now owned and distributed by Molson Coors.
