"Charming Neighborhood"

In between Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet Linden Hills is home to a few of our all time favorite restaurants and local shops. The streets are tree lined and the houses are amazing. You will want to get out of your car and just stroll along the streets in this neighborhood. You can walk to either lake for more of everything the lakes have to offer or stick close to the business district, this is where our favorite restaurants and shops reside. There is a strong sense of community here, you will feel it and see it in action at the local establishments. You really do feel like it's a place where everybody knows your name.
Pros
  • clean and close to nature
  • Natural beauty
  • Next to two lakes
  • Local businesses
Cons
  • home prices are on high end
  • Far from highways
  • hard to find parking on some streets in the summer

There are a lot of new construction homes in this neighborhood in addition to a variety of more traditional architectural styles including craftsman and bungalow. It's close to downtown Minneapolis and Lake Harriet.

"A great place to live and play!"

Edina is a first ring suburb making it an accessible and convenient place to live. It has a long standing great reputation for fabulous schools, parks and shopping. Edina has several shopping area's but a few highlights include Southdale Center, which has been in the process of getting a much needed renovation and the Shops at 50th and France. Edina like Minneapolis boasts strong neighborhoods and communities. The streets are lined with beautiful trees and the yards and houses are well maintained. Edina is home to several neighborhood parks as well as a few larger parks that attract people from all over the Twin Cities including Centennial Lakes and Edinborough Park. Edinborough is completely enclosed and a great spot to burn off some energy during the winter months. We are also huge fans of the aquatic center, we've had memberships to the pool for as long as we've had kids.

"Our First Home"

We used to live in the Keewaydin neighborhood and we really enjoyed it there. The home was our first home and we were just blocks from the lake. The motivation to get out and exercise or simply enjoy the beauty of the lake struck you every time you drove by it. At the time we had a big golden retriever who absolutely loved our location, we walked him around Lake Nokomis every day. The lake is a little over 2.5 miles, and in my opinion the perfect walking distance. The neighbors on our block were very helpful and everyone was friendly. This location offers easy access to Hwy 62 and Hwy 77, making our commute or errand runs a breeze. We also enjoyed Fat Lorenzo's, Carbones Pizza and the Popcorn Shop... and we still do!
Pros
  • peaceful - great family atmosphere
  • Next to the lake

"North Loop"

I love this area, it's a great area to work, shop and play. Commonly referred to as the Warehouse District, this neighborhood has a trendy, industrial feel. Most of the buildings have been converted into condo's and apartments with shopping, businesses and restaurants below. The North Loop is home to Target Field, a great place to see a ball game. It's also home to some fabulous restaurants that embrace the look and feel of the North Loop, Bar La Grassa is my personal fav. You won't have any problem finding a unique, trendy place to grab a bite or enjoy a cocktail in this neighborhood, no matter what your palette.
Pros
  • shopping
  • Target Field
  • Next to downtown

"Beautiful neighborhood, properly named!"

This beautiful neighborhood is properly named, you can get tangled up in the streets because they don't conform to the regular Minneapolis street grid but it's worth it. The streets are tree lined, the houses are pretty and the yards are well maintained. Tangletown Gardens and Wise Acre Eatery are my favorite Tangletown destinations, if you love to garden you can beat the selection at Tangletown Gardens, and the landscaping at Wise Acre Eatery, done by Tangletown Gardens makes it the prettiest dining destination in Minneapolis. Residents in this neighborhood enjoy great schools and beautiful parks in addition to several other great shops and restaurants. If you enjoy walking, running, biking or hiking you will enjoy the Minnehaha Creek, it runs through the southern part of this neighborhood and connects the neighborhood to the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway and the Lakes.

The average home price in Tangletown is 352K. This is based on information from the Regional Multiple Listing Service of Minnesota Inc for the period of 09/01/2012 to 09/01/2013.

"Wonderful Neighborhood and Community!"

The Armatage neighborhood is right next to the Kenny neighborhood so we frequently find ourselves there. We love the tree lined streets that continue from one beautiful neighborhood in Minneapolis to the next, the houses and yards are all well maintained. You'll find plenty of neighbors out and about, walking to and from the fabulous restaurants and parks. The Armatage neighborhood is home to some of our favorite restaurants in Minneapolis, Cave Vin, Cafe Maude and Pizza Lola. It's also where you will find Settegren's hardware, you can't help but feel like a part of the community when you walk in this store. They greet you at the door and ask how they can help. Armatage is conveniently close to downtown, uptown and major freeways making your work commute easy and your entertainment options endless.

The average home price in Armatage is 239K. This is based on information from the Regional Multiple Listing Service of Minnesota Inc for the period of 09/01/2012/09/01/2013.

"A little bit of something for everyone."

Minneapolis really does have a lot to offer. We've lived in Minneapolis for 17 years, we've lived in two different neighborhoods and we've experienced life here with and without kids. The neighborhoods are amazing, with a little research you can find a neighborhood that's right for you, home prices and amenities vary neighborhood by neighborhood but they all have something unique to offer. The streets are clean and lined with tree's and just about every neighborhood has a beautiful park with great equipment for the kids to play on as well as green space for picnics and relaxation. There are a ton of trails to bike, run or walk, The Grand Rounds Scenic Byway is one, it connects downtown Minneapolis to the Minnehaha Falls to the Chain of Lakes, it's 50 miles long and a great way to explore the city as well as exercise. Minneapolis has a vibrant theater scene, a great place to take in a performance is the Guthrie, the building is a performance in itself. We have great restaurants, my favorites are all the locally owned neighborhood restaurants, every neighborhood seems to have at least one. Beautiful museums, The Walker Art Center is my favorite, you have to check out Spoonbridge and Cherry, it's a Minneapolis icon. Minneapolis is home to the Minnesota Twins, Vikings, Timberwolves and The Wild. There are a variety of great schools to chose from, public and private, from elementary to the University of Minnesota. The people in Minnesota are educated, involved in their communities and genuinely nice.

"Beautiful neighborhood"

When you walk the streets of Lynnhurst you'll find gorgeous homes in a variety of different styles, tree lined streets and beautifully landscaped yards.

You'll also find Lake Harriet and Minnehaha Creek, both part of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway they provide residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities; walking, running, fishing, sailing, paddle boarding, canoeing and swimming. Lake Harriet is also a great place to catch a concert and grab a bite to eat. Bread and Pickle recently opened in the bandshell, it's a great spot to stop and enjoy the view. The neighborhood also boasts great local restaurants like George and the Dragon, The Lynn and The Malt Shop as well as unique local shops like Patina and Zinnea.

The average home price in the Lynnhurst neighborhood is $498K. This is based on information from the Regional Multiple Listing Service of Minnesota Inc for the period of 09/01/2012/09/01/2013.
