Description

Architect built, Frank Lloyd Wright style Mid-Century Modern home. Surrounded by Japanese Gardens. 10 min from dntn Mpls, blocks from U of MN St Paul. Great neighborhood in walking distance to grocery store, shopping, book store, great restaurants.

Huge wall of windows overlooking gardens, complete privacy, black slate floors, marble floors in kitchen + bath, radiant in-floor heat, passive solar, stainless steel appliances, cement countertops, post and beam construction, all wood ceiling and walls, art collection. Second bedroom doubles as Media Room with 55" 4K HDR Ultra HDTV system. The whole house is surrounded by large trees and Japanese Gardens.

Whole main floor of house including full kitchen, full bath, large living room with stunning view, treadmill in exercise room, laundry room downstairs, screen porch, patio. You can also use the patio or stroll the Japanese gardens surrounding house.

I will be out of town or at my cabin (the Trade River Retreat Center) when the house is available. Simone, my housekeeper, lives in a separate downstairs apartment, with it's own entrance, and is available if there are any questions or concerns.

It's like being in a small town in the heart of the city. 2 blocks to great little grocery store, gift shops, independent bookstore, wine shop, post office and several great restaurants. Small nature preserve across the street behind the seminary. Just blocks from St Paul U of MN campus. Voted best neighborhood for architecture in the Twin Cities.

10 minutes from downtown Minneapolis, 12 minutes from downtown St Paul. Quick access to freeway. Bus stop in front of house on Como Ave and bus hub is 1 block away.


Eclectic blend of Japanese and Southwestern Native American aesthetic with lots of art and sculpture throughout. Very private, quiet and tranquil setting nestled in among the trees. Complete seclusion with the summer foliage, unique to an urban setting. Organic cotton sheets and towels provided. Early check in and late check out usually available upon request.

I am a fine art photographer, photo workshop instructor and lover of strong coffee & loud music that travels constantly. I love beauty in many forms and am very influenced by Japanese style, gardens and architecture. My house reflects my interest in Mid-Century Modern and ecologically sustainable architecture and the decor is a blend of Native American and Eastern spirituality.

You can read my bio or see more about my photography and workshops on my website by searching 'Douglas Beasley'.
