The brand new property replaces a home previously built in the 1920s that can be seen below, which sold for $2,820,000. That means the duplex made over $3.7 million more than the detached house.
The duplex boasts a ton of backyard space, and the listing suggests it would make a great place to host backyard shindigs thanks to the included fire pit and BBQ area.
