The Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Southwest Minneapolis is one of the best cottage neighborhoods in the Twin Cities. The Bryn Mawr neighborhood is known for its progressive nature and close proximity to downtown Minneapolis, the Minneapolis Lakes, and miles and miles of trails and parks. In Bryn Mawr, real estate doesn't come available often but when it does it sells quickly. The North Bryn Mawr neighborhood sits Glenwood and Highway 394 and the South Bryn Mawr neighborhood sits between Highway 394 and Cedar Lake. Both North and South Bryn-Mawr are accessed by the first exit out of downtown, the Penn Avenue exit. The skyline views from the Penn Avenue bridge are incredible. Imagine walking or biking the natural trails of Theodore Wirth, Cedar Lake, Lake of the Isles, Lake Calhoun, and Lake Harriet, starting from your doorstep. Life here in Southwest Minneapolis' Bryn Mawr Community is good. You will find restaurants, bus stops, day-care center, brewery, parks, coffee shops, churches, schools, shopping, and grocery store all within a couple of blocks.
Bryn Mawr does not experience as much of the recreation traffic, even though it is adjacent to Cedar Lake and the Wirth Park Woods. Residents in these neighborhoods tend to be professionals or executives, many of whom work out of their homes, so there are people about throughout the day. Surrounded by parks like Bryn Mawr Meadows, Bassett Creek Park and Theodore Wirth Park there is always something to do. Some of the residents' favorites include golf, snowboarding snow tubing, cross country skiing, mountain biking, running, tennis, volleyball and site seeing. You can get everywhere you need to go through back roads: Uptown, The Lakes, Downtown, The burbs, the farmers market, and the Twins Stadium all just minutes away.
The Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Association is one of the most active neighborhood associations in the Minneapolis.

The team leader of the Minnesota Property Group of Remax Results, Joe Houghton was raised in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood and spent 7 of his adult years living in Bryn Mawr. He is still one of the neighborhoods' go to Real Estate agents and enjoys holding open houses whenever his home sellers want him too. Joe still keeps in touch with his old neighbors and get's to chat with them when they stop by the new listings he holds open houses for. The only reason Joe moved from the Bryn Mawr neighborhood was to get an acre lot for his dogs and 4 boys to run around in. The golden doodles were spoiled when they lived in the neighborhood, though. Joe took them to the Cedar Lake Dog Park every day and let them play with their friends. If you are considering buying a home or selling a home in the Bryn Mawr Area, contact Joe and his team today.
