Grand Mediterranean Home on Lake of the Isles

2427 Lake of the Isles Parkway East, Minneapolis

Last week I had the chance to tour the recently listed historic mansion on Lake of the Isles. It is a beautiful Spanish Revival home that was built in 1911 by architect Frederick Soper, presumably for Charles Buchholz the president of the Western Biological Supply Company.

A photo of the home as it looked in 1974 shows how the original entrance looked before the front stairs and terraces were added in 2005. The home is a standout inside and out, and features a grand staircase in the middle of the home, which gives an atrium feel to the home. It is currently listed for sale for $5.495 Million, one of the most expensive homes on Lake of the Isles.
