Curb Appeal Enthusiasm™: Weekend Open House Picks

by Alex Stenback on March 31, 2006

Spring is springing, and that means much better weather for hitting the streets for an open house hunt. A LOT of opens this weekend.

Sheridan_ave
2441 Sheridan Avenue S., Minneapolis|GMAP
$699,900 | Sun 1-3 | Edina~Leigh Thomas
Just great looking all around – love the tile work, shakes, stained glass. Wedged between Isles and Cedar lakes.
Norman_ridge1
200 Norman Ridge Drive, Bloomington|GMAP
$479,900 | Sun 2:30-4:30 | Edina~John Murray
Kind of a cool contemporary here, but must like washing windows.
Grand1
4054 Grand Avenue, Minneapolis|GMAP
$334,900 |Sat/Sun 12-3 | Edina~Betsy Rubin
White/painted woods kind of a nice changeup.  Nice look from the curb.
1st_ave
3337 1st Avenue South, Minneapolis
|GMAP
$329,000 | Sun 2-4 | Edina~Sherry Graham
Woods, stained glass, and leaded windows all over the place.  Dig it.
Xenwood1
3356 Xenwood Avenue, St. Louis Park|GMAP
$235,700 | Sun 2:30-4:30 | Edina~David Abele
Classic St. Louis Park saltbox – like the kitchen upgrade. Interior finish feeds our yellow fixation.
14th_ave1
3957 14th Avenue S., Minneapolis
|GMAP
$229,000 | Sun 1-3 | Edina~Timothy Hammett
Look! More yellow (inside!)  Like the bricks, but not quite sold on the exterior brown.
Reader Submission: Again, we encourage these, and make every effort to get them posted [Read: we'll stretch the curb-appeal definition a good ways]

Reader
1037 24th Ave SE, Minneapolis|GMAP
$194,900 | Sat/Sun 11-2 | FSBO
Not a lot of "pop" from the curb, but fit & finish looks quite good for under $200k. AND there’s a sort-of blog for the listing, which wins points with us.  Good rental property (close to UofM).
