Twin Cities Real Estate - Standish-Ericsson
I love South Minneapolis.
The grand rounds scenic byway - Our priceless “resource”.
Different people. Different needs. Different wants. It’s what real estate is all about. I hold this to be true and it’s one of the things I love about selling real estate in South Minneapolis, because of the diverse opportunities it offers. For example, you can live affordably by a little lake (Lake Hiawatha) or head further west to bigger lake, with a higher price tag to Lake Harriet.
Standish - Ericsson: Affordable, urban living, near lakes. Lake Hiawatha and its surrounding park, a 241-acre recreation area that offers wonderful walking and biking paths, swimming, tennis courts, cross-country skiing and one of only a handful of 18-hole golf courses in the city limits.
Great neighborhood for eating…..conveniently close to the Light Rail Transit, you can hop on at the 46th Street station and be downtown, the Mall of America or the airport within about 15 minutes!
The following was excerpted from Article Minnesota Monthly April 2010:
2009 MEDIAN SALES PRICE: $225,000**
If you fancy living in the city and within a long slice of a golf course, put Nokomis’s Ericsson neighborhood on your radar. Lake Hiawatha and its surrounding park, a 241-acre recreation area that offers swimming and cross-country skiing, is one of only a handful of 18-hole golf courses in the city limits.
Bordered by East 42nd Street, East Minnehaha Parkway, and Cedar and Hiawatha avenues, Ericsson features lovely walks and biking paths. Ride along the parkway to Minnehaha Falls, just across Hiawatha Avenue, or mosey up the hill at the southeast corner of Hiawatha Park for a great sunset view. The homes here are solid citizens, mostly pre-1940, single-family residences that pay homage to an era defined by Craftsman quality. The handy retail area along Cedar includes Hudson’s Ace Hardware store—where that mysterious piece of a 70-year-old faucet is no mystery to the guys who work there—and newcomer Angry Catfish Coffee and Bike Shop—where hipster cyclists and coffee snobs meet. Dining runs to comfort food and neighborhood pubs. But that can be outstanding: Colossal Café, home of the famous Flapper pancake, and A Baker’s Wife’s Pastry Shop. Just down the block, Buster’s on 28th serves up a good selection of local microbrews, along with excellent eats. If an ice cream is more to your liking of a summer evening, stop in at Grand Ole Creamery on 47th and Cedar for a decadent scoop of Black Hills Gold in a handmade, hand-rolled, malted waffle cone.
Thanks to the Hiawatha line, easy public transportation is now a hallmark of Ericsson. Downtown Minneapolis, the Mall of America, and the airport are each roughly 15 minutes from the 46th Street LRT station.
