Property description

This 1926 Craftsman double bungalow (duplex) has all the detail and flexibility its architectural style suggests. The hand crafted woodwork that frames the home's interior, goes from dark to light as you move through the house, from a deep walnut framing the sunporch, living room, and dining room, to the original oak cabinetry of the kitchen, to the bright scrubbed pine in both bedrooms.

This property can sleep six quite comfortably, eight with just a bit of imagination. The master bedroom has a queen bed as well as a comfy chair and table for reading or lounging. The second bedroom has a full bed, a functional desk, a chair and bookshelf. We encourage guests to borrow or trade books from the bookshelf as their interests dictate.

The open sun porch has a pullout sofa bed (queen), vintage swivel chair and lots of windows and plants. Perfect for sitting, talking, reading or gazing. We have an additional deluxe queen size air mattress (the double decker) which can fit on the opposite end of the sunporch for larger parties.

The dining room overlooks the flower garden through a horizontal panel of three windows. The dining table (built in the same period as the house) is solid walnut with an Art Deco Sunburst pattern and seating for 8.

The kitchen is functional for cooking and equipped with pots, pans, cutlery and other utensils. There are sufficient tablesettings, plates, bowls, glasses, etc to serve eight. Guests will also find a breakfast basket filled with pastries fruits yogurts orange juice, etc...enough for your entire party's first breakfast in your temporary home. Coffee and tea are always provided.

The backyard is partially enclosed with a privacy fence and has a patio table and chairs with umbrella. Great for barbecuing or just sitting and relaxing from Spring through Fall. There is also an enclosed back porch with screened windows looking out over the backyard.

The house is located a half block off the Bike Boulevard, a right-of-way street for bicycles, and less than ten minutes ride from the Minnehaha Parkway bike trail which follows The Creek to beautiful Minnehaha Falls. We have 7 adult bikes, including a tandem, and two kids bikes for guests to use for leisure or general transportation. 15 minutes ride to The Lakes or downtown via the bike lanes.

If biking isn't your preferred mode of transportation, We are located only one block off the Bloomington Avenue and 38th street bus lines (#14 and 23)) and about 10 blocks from the light rail.

Car: Not Necessary

South Minneapolis is known for it's wonderful Craftsman Architecture, it's broad boulevards, quiet tree-lined residential streets, lakes, parks, and bike lanes. The Bancroft Neighborhood is the height of this model and is livable in a way that few American neighborhoods are. Its compactness, it's proximity to uptown, downtown, and The Lakes (10mins by car, 15 by bike), as well as its various Bike Boulevards, Greenways, and Bike Paths, make navigating the city easy, breezy and healthy. The Midtown Farmers Market, Seward Coop, and Lund's (hubs for local and organic foods) are all within 10-15 minutes drive or bike as well. The historic and beautiful Minnehaha Falls (named after the Native American princess from Longfellow's 1855 epic poem The Song of Hiawatha) is easily accessible by Minnehaha Parkway which follows Minnehaha Creek through a winding system of bike and foot paths. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are popular along the Parkway during the winter months. For the more urban-minded, our location is easy access to downtown nightlife, restaurants and shopping, 10 minutes drive via Park Avenue. We are also 15 minutes from the airport and Mall of America.
