Homes in our seaport city of Duluth offer a broad range of architectural styles and, like the city itself, stunning locations. From peaceful and secluded wooded sites to those on or with a view of the splendor of Lake Superior, our city offers a plethora of choices.
This week we take a look at what we consider three of the most spectacular luxury homes on the Duluth real estate market right now. We’ll sure you’ll agree – there’s a lot to love about each one.
Bristol Wood Estates
The first word that will come to mind when you drive up the heated driveway to this Kenwood neighborhood home is “stately.” That driveway, by the way, has a dedicated heating system.
Step inside, onto the heated, gleaming wood floors though to find the real gems of this executive home. On the main level you’ll find a spa, great room, formal dining room, dual offices and a family room. Oh – and the kitchen -- it’s chef’s delight with top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of room to prepare a fabulous meal.
The spacious master suite is on the second level and it features a dual-sided fireplace in the sitting area, his and her walk-in closets and a bathroom with a whirlpool tub and a walk-in shower. There is a private balcony off of the master suite.
The walk-out lower level features an additional family and rec room with a full bar, a home theatre room and storage area. The entire home is wired for both security and sound/intercom.
Built in 2008, in all this home has 6 Bedrooms and 7 bathrooms in 8,736 square feet of living space. It is being offered at $1.395 million.
The Cotton Estate
Sumptuous is the word for this estate built in 1908 for attorney Joseph B. Cotton. Designed by Keyes and Colburn, this Italian Renaissance stunner comes with a 4,000 square foot carriage house.
The home contains 16,000 square feet and features Russian oak and walnut, 16th century marble fireplaces, Italian plaster frieze ceilings and Swedish wood accents.
You’ll find 10 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms and 2 half bathrooms on four levels. There are two kitchens, a formal dining room, living room, library and a total of 10 fireplaces. The children have plenty of room with a playroom and media room.
This home is offered at $1.35 million
Luxury to some includes low to no home maintenance. If that describes you, consider this contemporary townhome designed by Stanious Johnson Architects. Located on the beach at Lake Superior, it features seven miles of sand and unparalleled views of the lake, the city and the pier from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Stay cozy and warm at home in front of one of the home’s two fireplaces while your car rests in the 2+-car heated garage. This 3-bedroom condo with 3,194 square feet of living space is offered at $1.2 million.
Of course you don’t have to have a Bill Gates-style bank account to afford to buy a home in Duluth. To prove it, next week we’ll feature some homes that are priced just right for the first-time homebuyer.
