Historic Schorenstein Garage to become a home for young couple

The property is the last from the vacant home tour to be sold

The historic Schorenstein Garage has new owners. The property, which is the last to be officially sold from the Dayton’s Bluff Vacant Home Tour, will be converted from a commercial space into a home.

During the Jan. 11 St. Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority meeting, the sale and development agreement were approved for the property at 216-218 Bates Ave. 

The former commercial property will be rehabilitated by Cory Vandenberghe and his fiancée, Tia Helfrich, for their future home, making this particular home sale unique in that it is being rehabilitated by the future occupants themselves rather than a developer.

In 2009, 275 Bates Ave., foreground, in the Dayton's Bluff neighborhood of St. Paul, could be purchased for $1 from the St. Paul Housing and Redevelopment Authority. 279 Bates, next door at right, was on the market for $5,000. Since then, 279 Bates has been rehabbed and is now on the market for $169,900. (Pioneer Press file photo: Scott Takushi)

The Louis Hansen House and Bakery at 275 Bates Ave. was built in 1884 at a cost of $800. An example of Italianate design reinterpreted for Minnesota weather, the two-story, L-shaped frame building sits on a coursed limestone foundation and under a gabled roof.

And soon, it may be torn to the ground.

In the Dayton’s Bluff Historic District, the Dayton’s Bluff Community Council is making a final push to save six vacant properties from demolition: a free home tour in an antique bus.
