Since being featured on, Zillow Gone Wild, this one of a kind home has caused quite the stir. It has been known as the “Erickson House” this mid-century modern home was built in 1959 on top of a steel bridge spanning a creek that flows through the Congdon Estate to Lake Superior.

“The thing that strikes me so much is that it’s built on steel and it spans the creek, and you can never be allowed to do this again. The laws wouldn’t allow you to build over a creek like this. And so I mean, I’m just struck by the quality of the construction,” says Peter Gesell, owner of the home.

The home is as unique as they come, especially for the Duluth area. But the million dollar question, how much will a home like this cost you?

“The listing price is $750,000. And in my opinion, that’s a great price to get you started on what this property’s value really is. It’s a gem. Everything in it is vintage and beautiful. Yes. You’ll put some money into it. Any money that you want to spend to continue beautifying this property is going to be money that you’re going to get back again,” says the listing agent of the home, Karen Rue.

The home is currently on the market and is a listing from Edina Realty’s Gulliford and Rue team at 3328 E Superior Street, Duluth.
