PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $6.2 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! This grand estate on the shores of Mirror Lake in Edina, Minnesota is a luxurious retreat from the everyday, yet is only 30 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. Sited on a cul-de-sac on +/-4.5 private acres with more than 375 linear feet of lake frontage, the home also provides beautiful views of Interlachen Country Club, located directly across Mirror Lake. With a private dock, paddle tennis court, skateboard park, and frisbee golf course, the home is an ideal place to spend a summer day, and ice skating on the lake is a favorite pastime in winter – but the indoor pool with lap lanes and volleyball area is perfect year-round. Complete with sauna and shower, the pool area also features a heated walkway leading to an exterior hot tub.
The approach to the home is wooded and pristine, with lush landscaping flanking a winding, private drive. A circular motor court leads to the property’s entry portico, graced with a custom wooden and wrought-iron door. Upon entry, an intimate foyer with a lovely dual staircase opens into the heart of the home. Entertaining areas are spacious, and are outfitted with hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, and charming period details like custom, built-in china cabinets and intricate mantles. Stone accents throughout the home lend a rustic charm, and high-end finishes evoke a timeless elegance.
EDINA, MN. Edina is a special place that exudes small-town charm but features big city amenities. Recreational activities include centers dedicated to aquatics and ice hockey – and everything in between! – from Braemar Arena’s three indoor ice arenas to the Edina Aquatic Center’s surf simulator, 207-ft long body slide, and Olympic-sized pool. Multiple sports leagues including baseball, soccer, and lacrosse call Braemar Field home, and those wanting to hit the links can choose between Braemar golf course, Interlachen Country Club and Edina Country Club – all of which offer challenging, 18-hole courses that have been the site of many state and national championships.
Residents of Edina also have plenty of opportunity for arts and culture. The Edina Art Center provides a space to enjoy artistic and cultural events, take art classes and utilize a pottery studio, while Edinborough Park offers free music, dance, theater and visual arts programs in addition to an acre of indoor play structures in a completely enclosed recreation facility. Education is important in Edina as well; in particular, Edina High School has previously been ranked 197th best public high school in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, and 89th in Newsweek’s “List of the 1,200 Top High Schools in America.”
MINNEAPOLIS, MN. One of the largest metropolitan centers in the Midwest, Minneapolis is a dynamic and vibrant city that offers an endless array of activities. With the nearby capital of St. Paul, these two cities are commonly referred to as the “Twin Cities.” Minneapolis has prioritized its green spaces, and residents are never farther than six blocks away from one of the 197 parks; indeed, the Minneapolis park system was been ranked best in the nation annually from 2013 to 2017 by Park Score.
Another key attraction for residents and visitors alike are the multitude of lakes throughout Minneapolis, particularly the “Chain of Lakes” (the collective name given to the five largest lakes in the region). Given Minnesota’s moniker as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” their appeal should come as no surprise, and whether canoeing or kayaking, playing a game of pond hockey in the winter, or just enjoying the scenic view, the lakes provide an idyllic respite. For a different kind of “nature scene,” head to the Minnesota Zoo or the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory in St Paul.
While Minneapolis may not be world-renowned as a food mecca, it is on its way to this distinction. The city boasts a variety of international cuisine, but is perhaps best known as the home of a cheese-stuffed hamburger patty that rivals 5-8 Club and Matt’s Bar both claim to have invented called the “Juicy Lucy” (or “Jucy Lucy” depending on the bar!). The city has become a destination for craft beer lovers, and it also boasts a number of distilleries. For a more unique meal, take a ride on “The Danger” at Betty Danger’s Country Club where you can eat and drink on a Ferris wheel lovingly referred to as a “vertically revolving patio.”
There is no shortage of cultural refinement in Minneapolis: the metropolitan area offers 55 museums to visit and the renowned Guthrie Theater houses world-class theatrical productions. In fact, according to Pollstar, the Twin Cities are second behind only New York City for number of theater tickets sold on a per capita basis. Additionally, public works of art are in plentiful supply, as evidenced by the numerous commissioned murals around the city.
