Location: 3328 E Superior Street, Duluth, Minnesota

Year Built: 1959

Footprint: 2,452 square feet (three bedrooms, three baths)

Lot Size: 0.34 acres

From the agent: "This home speaks to the heart of what we mean when we say a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity.’ The midcentury-modern home, known as the Erickson House, is built on top of a steel bridge spanning a creek that flows through the Congdon Estate to Lake Superior. Built of steel, concrete, and slate in 1959, this time capsule is ready to be restored and polished. The wall of windows in the open-concept living room and primary bedroom looks into the trees, suspended in nature. This engineering feat has stood solid through its 60 years, and is ready to once again shine."

A long walkway overlooking the surrounding property leads to the home’s entrance.

Upon entry, original wooden cabinetry partitions off the main living spaces set just beyond. Clerestory windows line the walls, drawing in ample natural light. 

The open kitchen is located on the opposite side of the entry partition.

Each of the three bedrooms is a quiet refuge for relaxation, with a spacious en suite bath.

Soothing sounds from the creek below can be heard from the home’s private balconies.

An indoor pool—ready to be restored and polished—awaits under the garage.

3328 E Superior Street in Duluth, Minnesota, is currently listed for $750,000 by Jessica Buelow and Karen Rue from the Gulliford & Rue Realty Team at Edina Realty.
