If you are in search of an outstanding family home in the western suburbs, you may fall in love with our newest listing in Orono. This 2,783 square foot walkout rambler is spacious and stylish and offers charm, comfort, and modern functionality.
The current owners meticulously and lovingly maintain this beautiful home. The updates and improvements they made will impress you. Since we feel pictures tell the story of a home best, let’s begin our mini-tour and point out some of the features that we love about this home.
Orono has the charm of a small town while offering excellent access to the Minneapolis urban scene with downtown accessible by a 16-mile drive on the expressway. Four season recreational options abound since this community sits in the Three Rivers Park district, and bonus points for this home being adjacent to the Luce Line Trail.
What else? Shopping options are plentiful in all directions, and you never have to drive very far for a grocery run or dining out. Downtown Wayzata and the Beach are a short walk which is the icing on the cake! Another essential plus, this residence is located in the award-winning coveted Wayzata School District.
Main Level Features
The family room impresses. We love the abundance of windows that not only soaks the room in sunlight but affords a view of the beautifully landscaped back yard and wooded area. The vaulted beamed ceiling imparts mid-century vibes, and we dig it!
The kitchen is enormous and filling up all those cabinets you will have is going to be a challenge, seriously we mean it! Again we feel that mid-century thing happening with that bank of windows over the sink. There is a spacious dining area attached and access to a beautiful deck.
Walkout Lower Level
Again we are so taken with the amount of natural light that fills this home, even in the lower level. The family area features a large gas fireplace wall and currently functions as a home theater. The laundry/utility room and two more bedrooms are on this level and a new bath with a walk-in shower as well.
Yard and Surroundings
As if this home were not fantastic enough, it sits on an almost 1 acre, very private house lot. The back yard is enormous, partly wooded and private featuring beautiful flowers and plantings. (tulips coming in a couple of weeks) A large deck amplifies enjoyment and appreciation of your outdoor space off the kitchen, and as you walk out the lower level, there is a patio as well.
Among the updates, improvements, and features you will appreciate include top of the line Anderson windows, newer stainless steel appliances, freshly painted walls, carpet, tile, and wood floors. Outstanding features include vaulted and beamed living room, walls of glass, and a gas fireplace.
This exceptional family home is waiting. Don’t let it slip away. Check out the interactive virtual tour and then call Joe Houghton for personal viewing. But we warn you; once you experience this home in person, it may be difficult to leave!
