Map: Street











This 1907 Queen Anne style, 2 story home in the historic Cathedral District was built by Hubert Loonan of Loonan Lumber Company. It remained in the family until 1958 when it was purchased by Dr and Mrs. Barnett. The marble paneled entry has the original mosaic tile floor which leads to the piano room with carved oak ceiling and grand staircase. Living room paneling, columns and floor is quarter-sawn oak. Fireplace is original converted to gas. The dining room panels and ceiling are of Honduras mahogany and features original paintings by local artist Henry Rezac. Rezac also painted wall panels and the ceiling of the sunporch. Each bedroom is finished with different woods reflecting Loonan's lumber business. The home sits on 2 lots with a 14x10 gazebo in the north yard which has been the host of 2 family weddings. A 15x13 carport accentuates the covered front porch. Please take note of the ornate columns on the porch, carport and gazebo. Many more details on the attached addendum!

    What an amazing house! So many original features have been preserved. It has elements of Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival and Queen Anne and somehow they all work beautifully together.

    Agree with TGrant about the sunroom – wow, beautiful! Also love the frieze in the DR. The staircase and the fp aren’t bad, either. 😉

    An interesting and impressive mish-mash. The result looks better than the idea.

    My dream house! It all looks perfect to me. I lived in Sioux Falls for 4 yrs. of college. Very nice small city, best place in SD IMO. Very humid summers and frigid winters lots of snow. Otherwise I would live there.

      The town has changed dramatically. It keeps growing. This house is listed as being in the Cathedral District but is only one (large) city block away from 10th/12th Street, which I believe is now the second busiest street in the city. Population keeps increasing and so does crime; last I looked, violent crime was up 80% in 5 years. I won’t describe this neighborhood because it’s not in my place to do so.

      Just to the south of this house is the Sioux Quartzite home that was listed on this site several years ago. I’m sure you remember the buildings downtown made from that beautiful stuff. I wonder how the remodel is going. When did you go to school in SF?

        I live in this neighborhood, just 2 blocks away from this house. Please, enlighten me on how terrible it is…

          I think you missed the part (of my reply to Linda) where I wrote “I won’t describe this neighborhood because it’s not in my place to do so.”

          10th Street is a major thoroughfare and always has been. It’s perhaps not as busy today because the rest of the city is growing much, much more. I engaged Linda because I’m assuming she’s a bit older and can possibly remember when the busiest intersection in SF/the state was just a gravel road.

        We have lived here 12 years. And that street is busy, but not remotely one of the busiest in town. There is a vast difference in traffic between where this house is located and the street you speak of.

        Also, the Avery house is coming along beautifully. They just had a fundraiser where they opened it, and other Cathedral district homes, up to the public for viewing. The owners are doing a very nice job.

    It probably wasn’t intended as such, as I haven’t seen many, and those I have lack the built ins, but the paneled bedroom, I call dibs

  8. MichaelMichael says: 1109 comments

    Definitely not what I expected when I saw the exterior. Even on the exterior they went with porch columns usually not seen with this style. That said, I agree is does work and presents a stunning house, top to bottom!

    All this lovely wood and a not too bad kitchen. The price seems a little high, but I don’t know how real estate is in SD. I just can’t get over the woodwork. I hope the next owner doesn’t know how to open a can of paint…

    I love the dining room w/ it’s paneling and the lovely murals, stunning. Oh to drink a fine bottle of wine w/ good food and a great conversation in that room.
    Thank you Kelly, a very stellar day!

    Absolutely amazing…..so beautiful. I love it.

    The only thing I would change is the kitchen overhead light. Otherwise – it’s perfect.

    Sigh. Such beauty.

    Sensational in my opinion. The outside is wonderful – then I stepped inside and lost my heart! I ache for this one. I could not, in all conscience, leave that wood panelled room upstairs as just a bedroom. I would have it for a retreat. I would need to get away from the yumminess downstairs.

    I love the quiet elegance the paint scheme gives this grand house. The interior is one of the best ever! 6 months of the year I would wonder through this house taking in the incredible details, woodwork and supreme beauty and the other 6 winter months would be in a warmer climate. I wonder how much snow they shovel per season?

      But Eric, if you went south for the winter, you would miss the joy of cozying up to a roaring fire with a good book, a throw and a hot drink while a blizzard raged outside. One of my favorite pastimes as a 12-month New England resident.

    What an amazing home! I like the way the exterior doesn’t give you many hints as to the treasures that it conceals. Only the gazebo hints at the eastern influence inside the house. Walking through the front door must be a truly magical experience. And all that gorgeous woodwork too!
