From the Zillow listing:


The John & Maria Broom House – first time on the market in 56 years! Referred to as “the spiritual center of the Healy Block” this unforgettable Queen Anne sits amid one of Minneapolis’s most visible and cherished historic districts. Where else will you find such an elaborate mix of curves and gables? Or a tower cap without a tower? Inside, you’ll find some of the most elaborate fretwork in Minneapolis, as well as incredible built-ins, fumed oak woodwork, and a sunroom with windows so opulent they might only be topped by the breakfast room at Glensheen mansion. Imagine the satisfaction you will feel, having restored this incredible property to glory. Sitting on your front porch, perhaps welcoming guests of the annual historic walking tour for cookies and a peek inside. What a legacy that will be. The Broom House is waiting for you.
