The Far Hill Neighborhood of Wayzata Minnesota is located immediately North of Highway 12 and 1 block West of Broadway Avenue. The neighborhood includes 19 homes that are part of the Far Hill Home Owners Association. The Home Owners Association owns and maintains the Far Hill Monument, the mailboxes, and the Neighborhood Tennis Court. This tight-knit community gets together at least 3 times a year for parties and socializing. There is a very even mix of new homeowners and original owners and a pride in getting know each other and looking out for one another.
In 2012 Wayzata Real Estate Agent and Broker Joe Houghton bought a foreclosed home that adjoins the neighborhood tennis court. As a former College tennis player at St. John's University and the assistant head tennis pro at the Wayzata Country Club, it was a natural fit. It was actually one of the main reasons Joe was determined to outbid the other 9 parties that submitted offers. After a 2 month renovation, the home was like new and we were able to experience the magic of the property location and neighborhood. As a Realtor, it was important for me to have quick commutes to the entire Metro area and the neighborhood is just 13 minutes from Downtown Minneapolis which is a huge bonus. Other Real Estate agents are bullish on the Far neighborhood and the rest of Wayzata because it has seen such drastic improvements over the last 5 years and has so much planned for the coming years.
On any given day you will see residents of the Far Hill Neighborhood, chatting with one another, playing tennis, or walking through the neighborhood on their way to the beautiful downtown restaurants, shops, coffee shops, and studios. There are so many things to do and so many places to go in this small town of 4,000 people that you will see people coming from all over the Twin Cities to enjoy its good vibes. Wayzata is often referred to as the gateway to Lake Minnetonka and I couldn't agree more. Downtown Wayzata is bustling with energy and feels like a summer vacation destination.
