A Dream of a Home in West Bloomington
When we think of the Minneapolis metro suburbs that have it all, West Bloomington is at the top of the list. That’s why we are excited about Joe’s new listing in the desirable South Bay neighborhood. This delightful two-story home offers your family 4130 square feet of luxury on three levels of living space.
Five bedrooms mean everyone has their own private room plus accommodation for visiting family and friends. Four bathrooms mean never having to say you’re sorry for that long luxurious shower. Several distinct gathering areas indicate everyone can do their own thing or have lots of room for entertaining friends and neighbors.
With so many outstanding features to talk about in this elegant home, it is difficult to know where to begin. Here are a few of our favorites.
Superior Location in Bloomington
This home nestles seamlessly into the surrounding landscape in a neighborhood of comparable properties. Although secluded and private, it is by no means off the beaten path or isolated. Perched just outside the Hyland Lake Reserve and hugging the shores of Bush Lake’s south bay puts miles of trails for walking and biking at your doorstep. Pedal to Bush Lake Beach and enjoy a swim. The winter enthusiasts will be happy to note that the Hyland Hills Ski Area is just minutes from home.
The location accolades do not stop here. You are minutes from highway 169 which, connecting with 494 and highways 100 or 35 will lay the entire metro at your feet. An abundance of shopping, dining, and recreation are available to the west in Eden Prairie or to the east in the France Avenue shopping district of Bloomington and Edina.
Open, Light and Bright Main Level
Let’s take a peek inside.
The main level of this home is impressive. The rooms are generous and filled with natural light thanks to the wealth of windows. The combination of several gathering areas makes this property an entertainers dream.
There is a living room, a family room, a home office, and a formal dining area open to the large and well-appointed kitchen. The sunroom is also located here and is my favorite. This room offers a great deal of flexibility as to its use. The current owners have dedicated it to a home office. It would be delightful as a sitting room, a home library, or a playroom as well.
Preparing family meals will be a pleasure for even the most reluctant cook thanks to this cheerful bright kitchen. There is an abundance of white cabinets to fill with all your gourmet cookware and a kitchen island for expanded preparation space, storage and a landing spot for those casual family breakfasts.
The family room is the perfect spot for live-streaming the latest movie. Winter is the ideal time to enjoy the coziness of the fireplace and a cup of hot tea while discussing the most recent events of the day or for quiet time with a book.
Lower Level Family Fun Space
Your family will love spending time here watching movies, playing games or working out. It’s a great place for teenagers to gather or the little ones to have a play space. The fifth bedroom is also tucked away in the lower level and would make a great teen retreat or a craft and hobby room. One of the three full baths is found here in the lower level. A second fireplace is an added bonus feature!
Let's Explore the Sleeping Area
Upstairs you will find four spacious bedrooms. It includes a spacious master suite with a large bath featuring a tub and separate shower stall. The perfect adult haven and retreat from the tensions of the busy day. There is a second full bath on this upper level.
This outstanding family home has a lot to offer the larger family or, the smaller one that likes room to spread out. And for entertaining large groups or small intimate gatherings, it is perfect!
