Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am inspired by traveling, meeting new people, and exploring new cultures. Besides living in the US, I have lived in Costa Rica, Panama, Hawaii, the Netherlands, and Venezuela. Traveling, I have become best friends with fellow couch surfers and have had the opportunity to work in a butterfly garden, teach yoga, Spanish, and English. I am currently back in MN raising my 2 year old son and working at coordinating music festivals. I am only able to survive life in MN by leaving for part of the winter. My soul sings with the sun and I take every opportunity that I get to be somewhere warm.

Why the Owner Chose Powderhorn Park, Minneapolis, MN, USA:
I purchased this property while I was going to college. At that time I had a great time living there with all my college friends. It was so nice living under the same roof but also having two separate spaces. As the years went by I was able to come and go from here between my travels. It was so nice to always have a place to come home to. I have done so much work to this house in the past ten years. It has been an amazing learning and growth experience for me. It is definitely filled with my blood, sweat and tears. I am now married and have my 2 year old son. We have now purchased a home in the suburbs but I am so happy to now be able to use the space to share with others traveling through.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house was built in 1888. I love the history that this home holds. I love the diversity of the neighborhood and how convenient it is to get to most parts in and out of the city. It is close to walk or bike to parks, Minnihaha Falls, coffee shops, restaurants, and bars.
