This 'close-in' townhome in Eden Prairie is on the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac, right up against a wonderful 'northwoods' setting. You feel like you are well away from the world.
All views in this home look into woods/wildlife area. The split entry leads to an upper level which includes living room (with fireplace), dining room, and kitchen in a great room type setting and 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. There is a private deck off the great room area-- surrounded by woods.
The Master Bedroom has a walk-in closet, and a new king size Euro-top bed (15 inch mattress). There is a smaller second bedroom and a bath on this level as well. The spacious kitchen is well-equipped. Downstairs is a family room (with 2 single sleeper sofas), also with a fireplace and woods views, an office area (with internet cable and wi-fi) and a laundry room. There is a 2 car garage.
Perfect - what a hidden gem!, June 19, 2009
By Teresa Harris (New Hampshire, USA)
We had a fantastic week in Minnesota, in great part due to the comfortable, quiet and convenient accomodations here... wild rabbits at dawn and dusk; quiet tree-lined view - and yet practically walking distance to shopping, great restaurants and the major highway system. The kitchen was a bonus - fully stocked for complete meal cooking! We hope to return again on future visits, and are thrilled to have found such a "home away from home" in MN. Many, many thanks.
The townhouse was a mess when we arrived. There was old coffee in the pot. Partially used food items had been left in the refrigerator which itself showed signs of spills and/or mold. The water pipes seem to leave a bad taste to the water---there was a partially filled Brita pitcher with filter but, when I emptied it, black flecks (bacteria?) went down the drain. The bath and downstairs shower were filthy. The carpeting was dirty and has begun pulling away from the floor tacks so there are undulations that must be navigated while walking on it. All fry pans and lids were dented and/or warped such that they spin freely on the electric cooktop. Stored cookie sheets and pans were coated with oil residue and the original color was obscured by baked on food splashes. The oven had to be run through its clean cycle and the window scraped in order to see through it. All exterior windows were horribly dirty. The dishwasher drawers are broken is places preventing much from being placed inside so it had to be run frequently. Trash cans were full. The sheets on the master be were worn completely through in places. The propane grill provided on the deck was so filthy I elected to not clean or use it during our two month stay. The bathroom sinks drain poorly---I used one treatment of Drano which allowed us to use them but there is still a bigger problem. The A/C system had not been tested or used for a long time and caused water collection in the laundry room due to a blocked drain hose. The A/C tech reprimanded me for not changing filters and checking the system's functions before he knew I had just started my rental period. The laundry basket was so filthy we did not use it. Filthy is the watchword here. This is an absentee owner who lives in California and, I believe, relies on a relative to take care of this place which is not being done. With all of the cleaning we needed to do before we could live there, the owner offered to refund our cleaning deposit but altered that when she determined she needed to pay for professional window cleaners. As of today, August 18, her promised refund of half the cleaning deposit and all of our security deposit has not been returned to us. There were a few redeeming things about the property, specifically the privacy of the deck, but they do not offset the many, many issues presented to us. We ate there infrequently simply because it felt dirty to us even after we did our own cleaning. This property needs professional management.
The townhome provided all that we could hope for. The owner is very easy to work with and would recommend this location to anyone.
The townhome was perfect for our family of four. The split level floor plan was ideal as it provided two separate living spaces: one for kids, one for adults. It was very convenient to main highway and close to ski parks, main cities and Mall of America. There were quite a few restaurants nearby and a mall within walking distance. The townhome was very clean and quiet. We would stay here again!
This house was immaculate and pretty. We were in town for a conference and this place as beautiful and relaxing to come back to after a tough day. It was close enough to downtown to make the commute a breeze. The ammenties for cooking were excellent. I would highly recommend this place and Denise was very easy to work with.
This is a well appointed town house, in a very convenient location. This was my wifes first introduction to the USA. We came via Dulles Washington, which created a very bad first impression for her. Which I am glad to say was recovered by Minesota, the delightful house and the nice folks in Eden Prairie. Would I return to the same house, you bet I would.
Several miles of walking/running and biking trails lead out from, this home--- they are maintained by the homeowners association during the winter, In summer, nearby wetlands, their wildlife beckon. The Mall of America and the airport are 12 miles away, and downtown Minneapolis (the Guthrie, Orchestra Hall, The Art Institute, The Vikings and the Twins) only 16 miles away, Lake Minnetonka is 15 minutes away
