The Rand house, Minnesota
|One Old Territorial Road, 55362, Monticello, Minnesota, UNITED STATES.|
Description: The Rand houseRandom is set in nearly three acres of lawns and traditional Victorian flower gardens, highlighted by fountains, a pond, and walking paths. Random offers a peaceful, tranquil setting for walking, meditating, snowshoeing or just taking "time out" from the daily hurly-burly of modern life.
"Random" was built by Rufus Rand, Sr., owner of the Minneapolis Gas Light Company, as a wedding present to his bride. The property passed through several hands before being acquired by Duffy and Merrill Busch in 1986 and both the house and grounds have since undergone total renovation, and have been featured frequently in local and national magazines, newspapers and guides.
There are several communal rooms for your enjoyment, the dining room is where you'll enjoy elegant country breakfasts, as wonderful to look at as they are to enjoy. Breakfast is also served in The Solarium, and - season permitting - on The Rand House's grand front porch, fully screened and overlooking the lawns and the croquet court.
The winter parlour features a massive stone fireplace and large arched windows overlooking the lawns, pond, fountain garden and woodland gardens. The Drawing Room is the perfect setting for afternoon tea, reading, games, or just quiet conversation. Guests are welcome at the grand piano.
