Minnesota Nice Homes: This Golden Valley home is modeled on a French chateau

It was built for a Minneapolis attorney who 'fell in love' with a chateau near Paris.

A little piece of Paris can be found in Golden Valley, in the form of his French chateau-inspired home in the Tyrol Hills neighborhood.

On the market for $929,900, the property at 4410 Tyrol Crest offers 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms across 4,906 square feet in a convenient location near I-394 – a short drive into downtown Minneapolis.

It was built in 1956 by the well-known architect Edwin Lundie, many of whose homes, lodges and country estates still survive today all over Minnesota.

The inspiration for this home came from France, with Lundie originally commissioned to build it by Minneapolis attorney Eugene Rerat, who reportedly "fell in love" with a house he saw outside of Paris.

It's now known as the "Rerat House" and retains much of the craftsmanship that Lundie was known for, including triple hung floor to ceiling windows, a butternut paneled kitchen, and several light fixtures and a dining room mantle that were imported from France.

That said, it's more than equipped to handle a modern household – and also a wood paneled bar on the lower level.

The Kim Pease Team from Coldwell Banker Burnet has the listing. They can be contacted at 612-386-3046 or email kpease@cbburnet.com.
