Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: A few years back I used VRBO to offer my downstairs level to travelers and people in town visiting their families. I met so many nice people and enjoyed sharing my wonderful neighborhood. I run my own life coaching business and am an instructor. i have owned the house since 1998. Summer - this is a terrific location for beautiful walks or bike rides. one direction leads to the lakes and the other takes you to Minnehaha Falls and the Mississippi river. Winter -You are welcome to cross country ski in our great park system or nearby in our downhill areas or just enjoy the winter's quiet beauty along the creek.

Why the Owner Chose Minneapolis:
This property attracted me because it was like a small town neighborhood with all the advantages of the big city that is on the City lakes circle tour.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being right on the parkland by the creek means i often see many birds and wildlife.
