In the summer of 2023, an opportunity has arrived to own a unique and historic Duluth property. The "pretty stone cottage" was originally designed as a carriage house for a mansion built for lumber baron John Millen.

However, almost as quickly as it was listed for sale, the opportunity to own the cottage was gone. The property was removed from the market in August 2023.

Good news arrived on March 5, 2024, when it was once again listed for sale.

Sitting on a gorgeous wooded lot, this historic cottage was built in 1912 and while it has been remodeled or refurbished for today's lifestyle, it retains much of the original character from a bygone era.

Take a look through a piece of Duluth's history, which could once again be yours.

Charming Stone Carriage House For Historic Duluth Mansion Is Back On Sale

Duluth is filled with historic properties and another chance to own one has arrived. If you've ever heard someone talk about "that pretty stone cottage", chances are they are referring to the cottage that sits at 1600 Vermilion Road.

This historic property was designed by renowned architect Fredrick German and it was once a carriage house for the neighboring mansion, which was built for lumber baron John Millen in 1912. Although it has been remodeled or refurbished for today's lifestyle, it retains much of its original character.


As you approach this iconic landmark, you'll notice the majestic stone arch that welcomes you and your guests. Once inside the 1,900-square-foot cottage, you'll enjoy a surprisingly open-concept floor plan on the main level. They've truly maximized this space, which features a primary suite, an ensuite, and even a unique lofted level.

The craftsmanship is from a bygone era, with stone walls so thick, you hear no sounds from the outside. While the cottage features a smaller footprint, it's certainly a case of quality of quantity and the new owner will find it a perfect fit.

Take a look through the historic property, which features 2 bedrooms and 3 baths. It originally went on the market in July 2023. It was removed from the market in August 2023, but on March 5, 2024, it was once again listed for sale for $825,500, after owners added an additional lot.
