McKennan Park treasure blends historic charm with skillful modernization

October 20, 2021

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this incredible four-level brick home is a rare opportunity to move into a McKennan Park gem.

Located at 1220 S. Main Ave., this four-bedroom, two-bath Neo-Tudor home is 3,385 square feet masterfully modernized.

“There’s simply nothing else like it in Sioux Falls,” listing agent Amy Stockberger said.

“There’s incredibly intricate attention to detail paid to this home, which allows it to retain its historic uniqueness while offering many of the amenities you find in newer homes.”

Built in 1923, original quarter-sawn floors flow throughout the main and second levels.

Natural light streams into the formal dining room from a bay window.

Original French doors provide access to an upgraded kitchen.

“Here you’ll find many modern touches – custom cabinets, granite counters and high-end appliances,” Stockberger said.

The living room features a wood-burning fireplace with a carved surround and bookshelves.

And a sunroom surrounded by windows is accented by French doors and original quarry tile.

The second level reveals a colossal owner’s suite, plus two more bedrooms and two bonus rooms that originally served as servants’ quarters.

A second floor bath has been stylishly redone in keeping with the era.

A finished third level includes an option for a fourth bedroom, a “zen den” and a bonus room with storage.

“The design of this home fits many households and lifestyles,” Stockberger said.

“You’re going to find your kids’ rooms, your guest rooms, your home office, your fitness space and your hobby space within this home, and it’s flexible enough to adjust with your changing needs.”

A finished lower level family room features heated floors, a renovated bath and a finished laundry with an antique cast iron apron sink and updated mechanicals.

The private yard is screened by a cedar fence, and you’ll love the lush patio and pergola.

“The outdoor living in the heart of the city is outstanding,” Stockberger said. “Plus you’re a quick walk to McKennan Park or a bike ride downtown.”

You’ll love the rare, heated attached two-stall garage and other extras including a clay tile roof and dual heating and cooling.

“This home honors its history while looking toward the future so well,” Stockberger said. “It’s a gorgeous piece of the past waiting for you to call it yours.”

This Executive Home is listed for $689,900. For information, contact Amy Stockberger at 605-731-9597 or
