The locations of the original living room, dining room, and den have been maintained, and those rooms restored to original condition.
The owner asked that new work be in keeping with the style and details of the old house.He also asked for an addition to make the kitchen more usable and open, which would need approval by the Minneapolis Historic Preservation Commission and the Minneapolis Park Board.And he wanted state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems as part of the whole-house renovation.The Tre Hus design team added 10′ at the rear of the house and relocated the powder room, which created an effortless connection among all of the main-floor living spaces.The only inhabited island on the Mississippi River, and rich in Minnesota history, Nicollet Island is just off downtown Minneapolis.Its north end boasts 22 historic 19th-century homes. 1900 was a holdover of the earlier 19th-century gable-front house with a side wing.
Corner pilasters, a wide frieze, and six-over-six windows, all so characteristic of American Greek Revival style, are original.
The homeowner, in fact, calls this his “Nantucket cottage” for its similarity to the prevailing house type on that other island off Massachusetts.
The cottage was saved from demolition during the 1980s, when it was moved from its original location near the University of Minnesota.
Before that it had been a rental property for many years.
The kitchen, poorly remodeled in the 1950s, connected to the den via a walk-through bathroom.
With the kitchen and bath both in dire need of updating, the Minneapolis firm Tre Hus was brought in to design and build the improvements.
