Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Peggy and Jay raised their children on this property. We have recently transitioned to a townhouse in Minneapolis and chosen to retain our ownership of this beautiful home and property. We still enjoy the home, and actively tend our landscaped yard, vegetable garden, and orchard. We are nearby most of the time to take care of anything our guests might need.

Why the Owner Chose Chaska, MN, USA:
When we bought this property we were looking for a place in the country where our kids could grow up, where we would be close to our business, and where we'd be near family. Most local roads were gravel and although we are just 25 miles to downtown Minneapolis it felt like a world away. We didn't envision just how the area would change and grow over time. There's still a half mile of gravel road to get to our driveway, but the suburbs have crept close. Most shopping needs are conveniently reached by car now within a 5-10 minute drive. A long planned highway (MN 212) now connects us to the urban center with ease. We still enjoy our sense of open space and privacy and feel like this home offers the best of both worlds. We hope you'll feel the same when you stay with us!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home and property is uniquely comfortable. We've made it what it is over 25 years with alot of love and our talents. Everything is tasteful and appropriate, but not luxurious or pretentious. Our home offers a pleasant common sense approach to living. Peggy decorates with extraordinary style. She collects vintage items and furnishings and fixes them up. Our kitchen is a focal and gathering place of the home and she designed it with completely elegant country charm. Her touches are evident throughout. Jay has a love for all things outdoors and is proud of the stewardship he has taken of the 5 acres in his care. He has planted almost every tree on the property (there are hundreds). He's built and maintains the landscape beds, and looks forward to planting and tending his large vegetable garden ever year. If you're here during the growing season he hopes to share with you whatever is growing in the garden.
