1. The Cedarcrest Neighborhood of Maple Grove
Imagine living in a modern, planned neighborhood that offers its residents a private park with a swimming pool and a children’s playground. This is a friendly, warm and welcoming neighborhood, with many planned social events such as end of school year party, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day, National Night Out, Super Bowl. From the current owners: "There are children of all ages in the neighborhood who play well together in our backyards regardless of age. As you can see looking out back there are 7 playsets. We will miss this neighborhood dearly."
2. Local Amenities? Twin Cities Metro Access? You Betcha!
There is a dog park is just a few miles away as well as Fish Lake, Weaver Lake, and Elm Creek Park reserve. Many walking and biking trails nearby as well. Shop at nearby Arbor Lakes which has so many great restaurants as well. Ridgedale mall in Minnetonka is a short ride away and there are multiple grocery stores as well as Target and Walmart within 5-10 minutes of this home. Did we mention great schools and a 30-minute commute to downtown Minneapolis? If you prefer public transit stations are just north near Target in Maple Grove as well as a bus that picks up right outside the neighborhood.
3. Great Quality plus Outstanding Design in Your Twin Cities Home
With 4016 square feet on 3 levels, this home is plenty spacious. The great floor plan provides for generously sized rooms with good flow from area to area. Lots of windows let in the light and the result is an open, bright, spacious and airy home which is family friendly yet lends itself seamlessly to entertaining as well.
The heart of the home is at the rear with a kitchen open to a casual dining area and a living/family room. The welcoming gas fireplace will provide a warm glow which will be so appreciated when winter rolls around again. The custom cabinets on both ends provide great storage opportunities while walls of windows draw in both light and the lovely back yard views!
4. Elegant Functionality in the Kitchen
The family chef will be delighted and inspired by this fabulous kitchen! Warm, rich wood flooring against gleaming white cabinets and millwork create some interior design drama. Outstanding is the word for the large island with seating for six. Stainless steel appliances include a range and double wall ovens, black granite counter tops, a custom tile backsplash and sleek pendant lighting complete the look of total kitchen elegance. Wow! I want this kitchen!
5. Luxury Master Suite
At the end of the day, the master suite will be your perfect retreat! From the plush carpeting in the bedroom to the soaking tub, separate shower and his and her vanities in the master bath you will feel pampered. You will really appreciate the enormous walk in closet that has room for everything!
6. Lower Level – Sky’s the Limit
The current owners did a great job of designing the space on the lower level to provide for great versatility. There are 4 basic living areas that currently serve as a family room which includes a second fireplace, a wet bar, an exercise room and a fifth bedroom. A light, neutral designer color hugs the walls while windows and an abundance of recessed lighting make this space bright and cheerful. The plush warm carpeting begs for barefoot toes!
7. Odds and Ends
Sometimes it’s the little things that take a home from ordinary to extraordinary. The main level mudroom is a great place for removing snowy boots and jackets or drying or cleaning muddy dog paws. The maintenance free 12 by 14 deck just off the kitchen is a great place for taking the party outside in summer. The beautifully landscaped park like back yard with a fire pit takes entertaining into the evening hours. Custom interior paint, added shelving in all closets, upgraded light fixtures, shelving in the garage, 20K in new landscaping and custom blinds make this home a better value than new.
Elegant, livable, functional, serene, less than 20 miles north of the Metro and a truly great place to call home!
