Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are a family of five, currently living in Manhattan, New York. Olga is born in Ukraine and Svein is from Norway. Our three children Sebastian, Sophie and Ingrid keep us pretty busy.

Why the Owner Chose Summit - University, Saint Paul, MN, USA:
We bought this house in 2005 when we moved to St. Paul. The house was built in 1889, and has a character and charm that spoke to us. It is in a child friendly neighborhood, with a huge park just and a public tennis court across the street. Mississippi Market, our local Coop with local and organic produce, is just a two minutes walk away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has character, and a great floor plan for having friends over.
