Property description

This is a perfect location for a kid-friendly winter vacation. Spend the day at Buck Hill (3 miles from house) downhill skiing, snowboarding, or snow tubing then warm up by the fireplace. Spend a day shopping at Mall of America while the kids enjoy the rides and arcades of Nickelodeon Universe. Perhaps dine at the Rainforest Café. The Mall of America and all its attractions are only 13 miles away. Visit the Minnesota Zoo (6 miles from house) or cross-country ski the wooded trails of Alimagnet Park (2 miles from house). If the kids would like to sled for a couple hours, the backyard has a sloped hill down to lake great for sledding in winter. Enjoy the backyard lake access by trying your hand at ice fishing or perhaps snowshoe across the frozen lake to the walking trails of Lac Lavon Park.

The house is located on Lac Lavon in Apple Valley. The backyard has a sloped hill down to lake (great for sledding in Winter), lake access, a small dock with aluminum fishing boat and paddle boat, and a private sandy beach with portable fire pit.

This property has a large modern kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, gas-burning stove, dishwasher), teak wood cabinets, and bamboo hardwood flooring. Additional minor appliances include: above stove microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and blender.

The three-season porch attached to the kitchen has panoramic lake views and an adjoining deck with a propane burning, stainless steel barbeque grill.

This property features a first floor formal living room and attached formal dining room with vaulted ceilings.

The family room has a wood-burning fireplace; flat screen LCD TV; bamboo hardwood flooring; leather sofa, chair, and ottoman; glass-top coffee table; art; and lake views.

The upstairs master bedroom has a queen size bed, adjoining master bathroom with walk-in closet, and a small 3rd floor balcony with lake views.

The master bathroom has heated hardwood floors, walk-in closet, whirlpool bath, separate shower, and lake views.
