,This dreamy third floor unit in a historic Minneapolis mansion comes with a panorama of painted murals.

The latest: Listed for $1,750/month, it's inside Stevens Square's George R. Newell House located at 1818 LaSalle Avenue.

Why we love it: Artist and former resident Susan Lynn painted floor-to-ceiling masterpieces throughout the space in a style reminiscent of early American art, with angelic human forms on the ceiling and Twin Cities landmarks like the Como Conservatory and State Capitol across the walls.

  • Fellow former resident and journalist Zac Farber dove into the history of the unit, which was once used as the mansion's ballroom, and its artwork in a 2020 Southwest Journal article.

Layout: The unit has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and an off-street parking spot. All utilities are included and renters receive one month free with a 13-month lease.
