You cannot beat this location. Edina is one of the most desirable 1st tier suburbs of Minneapolis. The new owners will appreciate the easy access to both Highway 100 and 35 and the Crosstown. Surrounded by parks, lakes, shopping, fun, and food with a 15-minute commute to downtown Minneapolis, what more could you ask for? Great Schools? You have that too. Edina has a nationally recognized school system which has been a magnet for families with kids over the years.
Floorplan – Open and Bright
Most home buyers today want an open floor plan. This home has it in spades. The family room incorporates the dining area and flows directly into the kitchen. Note the abundance of windows to draw in the natural light and the beautiful hardwood floors. Neutral white walls make everything look so fresh and new. You know you will love that fireplace when the Minnesota winter arrives.
Ohhhh That Kitchen
Here it is. New. White cabinets. Lots of them. Subway tile. Butcher block counters. Professional grade stainless appliances. Wood floor. If you love cooking you will be in heaven. If you don’t enjoy cooking, you may find inspiration in this beautiful kitchen.
One bath is on the main level of the home and the other in the finished lower level. Both have been completely modernized. Note the beautiful patterned tile floor in the main level bath.
Professionally Finished Lower Level
It’s all here. The 4th bedroom, a family room with another fireplace, a home office and a full bathroom. Perfect for the family teenager of visiting family and friends.
Bonus Points For the Enclosed Porch
At the rear of the home is an enclosed porch that looks out over the lovely expanse of yard. It has the feel of a Northwoods cabin. The built-in snack bar is a thoughtful touch. What a great place for morning coffee or afternoon naps!
The deep backyard has a lush green lawn, a stone patio and is entirely enclosed. It’s perfect for summer lunches and gathering around the fire pit on chilly autumn nights. Invite the family and friends over to toast marshmallows and tell ghost stories.
