The house is on the MLS now – #3152250. Woo hoo.
I see this house being perfect for 3 different people:
- Single people (even with kids)
It’s a small place, easy to maintain, with lots of storage. Easy access to downtown and the highways with a huge lot for gardening and landscaping.
- DINKs or DIPs
Just the two of you and a couple of dogs that need to run? Comfortable, cozy spaces for pets and their stuff and yes, outdoor space for games of fetch. We didn’t have pets when we bought it, the lower maintenance and expense of a small house was perfect for us.
Wanna build a half-million dollar home in St. Anthony Village? Seems like a decent price for a big lot like this. For a while we were talking about adding a big, modern addition in the side yard. Living in this place during all the construction.
More info in my earlier post and over at Sam’s Urban Realty website as well.
This place just isn’t big enough for the 3 of us. So, we’re moving on. If you’ve followed this blog, you’ll know the backyard is great for watching movies off the laptop and recording podcasts. Bamboo flooring on the first floor, new carpeting upstairs, brand new stainless steel fridge, gas range, and dishwasher. Furnace and water heater less than 5 years old.
The house is on the high school marching band’s parade route and 2 blocks from the 4th of July parade route. Plus, we had an amazing vegetable garden along the east side of the house.
Other neat details: Huge lot (60*130), 5 miles NE of downtown Minneapolis. Between The Quarry and Silver Lake shopping centers. Lots of parks, a coffee shop, and a liquor store within walking distance. 1-car detached garage with second parking spot behind house. Easy freeway access.
It’ll officially go on the market on
Monday any day now, so consider this a sneak preview. If you’re interested, drop me a line and I’ll forward you to our agent.
