Let's say it's not 10 degrees outside. Let's say you need to shoot what appears to be a Miami-set music video, but in the Twin Cities proper. Let's say you have $3.75 million.
Welcome to 2545 Huntington Ave. in St. Louis Park.
“It’s obviously a landmark modern home with unbelieve views of downtown as well as Cedar Lake – water views, nature views, and skyline views," says Bruce Birkeland, the listing agent with Coldwell Banker Burnet. “There are other moderns in the area, but nothing like this; it has a double-house quality to it.”
That's because the structure – a collaborative venture between architectural firms Charles Stinson and Streeter & Associates – merges two houses into one.
A three-bedroom, three-bathroom main home was built in 2006, Birkeland explains, followed by the addition of a one-bed, two-bath lofted guest house in 2009. The buildings are connected by a glassy, 75-foot walkway that overlooks the pool. Sitting on a .73-acre lot adjacent to Cedar Lake, the 6,665-square-foot property also boasts three fireplaces (one's poolside), a wine cellar, and a three-car garage. Swag levels throughout? Quite high. (Click here to see the full listing).
Current owner Christopher Metz, CEO of Anoka-based ammunition/outdoor sports manufacturer Vista Outdoor Inc., purchased the place for $3.5 million in 2015, according to county records. He listed it for $4.8 million in 2017; it reemerged on the market Thursday at the current asking price.
