I often wonder if every home that has famous connections sells because of its past history. We shall soon see. The home located near Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis at 2104 Kenwood is on the market for $3.6 Million, after receiving a complete makeover the last two years.
Home shot as location for Mary Tyler Moore Show is now For Sale at $3.6 Million
The popular TV show used a shot of the third story exterior as the location where a character lived during the series, but Mary Tyler Moore never lived there. The current owners are hoping the history will add to the nostalgia of the home, but don’t expect it to sell just because of its famous past.
The classic Queen Anne Victorian home is beautiful. At around 9800 square feet, the home boasts new hardwood floors, complete re-wire, four new furnaces, a 3000 sf kitchen/living room additions, rebuilt windows, and much more. The owners goal was to update the home to the 21st century, but restore what they could of the original design characteristics of the home. They saved what they could, and added what was missing. The original large parlor pocket doors were even found walled up, in perfect condition. They have done a magnificent job at restoration. As I myself have restored two Queen Anne Victorian homes as well, I can attest of the excitement one feels once the home is completed. I will keep you updated on how much the home sells for!
