Owning a home within the city of Duluth that not only features 2 acres, but also 250 feet of Lake Superior shoreline is rare, but that's what hit the market this summer.
What makes this home, which features both of those things and a lot more, even more rare is that it was built by Duluth's legendary Congdon family.
Take another look through this historic property. It hit the market for $1.1 million in August 2022. The new owners closed on the property on October 5, and they did get a bit of a deal.
Sold! Built By Duluth's Congdon Family, The Historic Lake Superior Home Listed For $1.1 Million
It's not too often that you have the opportunity to own a "Big Lake" Duluth property that is not only situated on 2 acres but also features 250 feet of "pristine Lake Superior shoreline." But, that is exactly what hit the market
in the summer of 2022. What made this property even more intriguing is that it was built by the Condon family, a family with a very rich history in the Northland.
Built in 1971, this property is set back from London Road, which allows it to not only feature panoramic views of Lake Superior but there's plenty of privacy as it's also surrounded by dense woods.
This home totals 6,897 square feet, featuring 5 bedrooms and 7 baths. The 500+ square foot master suite features its own bathroom, fireplace, walk-in closet, attached sitting area, and an amazing Lake Superior view.
There's also a 400+ square foot kitchen that features St. Charles cabinetry and a breakfast nook.
Multiple fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, a formal dining room, a huge rec room, a 6-car garage, the list of amenities goes on and on.
The home hit the market for $1.1 million in August 2022. The new owners closed on the property on October 5, 2022, and they got a bit of a deal.

Sold! The Historic Cutler Mansion in Duluth Originally Listed For $849,900
Featuring a limestone facade and a castle-like appearance, one of the most recognizable homes in Duluth is the Cuter Mansion. In April, 2022, this historic home went on the market for just under $1 million.
Dwight Cutler, a building materials mogul, obviously spared no expense when commissioning the construction of this residence, which was built in 1912. The exterior stone was quarried from Lake Erie’s Kelly Island and the woodwork throughout was skillfully crafted.
The mansion features 8,484 square feet including 12 bedrooms and 7 baths on a large, treed, corner lot. It also provides 4 attached garage spaces.
What's interesting about this listing is that it could be a revenue generator for the new owner. It was built as a single-family residence, but has since been converted into a four-plex. Each unit of the four-plex features large living spaces, spacious bedrooms, full kitchens, and private laundries. It also provides gorgeous common spaces.
While the home was being used as a rental, but it could also be used as a multigenerational home, possibly a bed and breakfast, or even converted back into a single-family home.
There are a lot of great options for the new owner, who closed on the home on 8/26/2022. The Cutler Mansion was originally listed for $849,900, but ultimately sold for less.
