For those unfamiliar, Curb Appeal Enthusiasm™ is our feature where we pick out a half dozen or so unique, notable, or otherwise interesting open houses each week. Except when we don’t publish the feature for months, but why split hairs? On with the show…

Columbus_ave1
5100 Columbus Avenue, Minneapolis
|GMAP
$839,000|Sun 12-4:30|Daren Jenson, Edina
This spec (?) home near the creek is pretty damn impressive. Love it.
Fletcher1
4 Fletcher Place, Minnetonka
|GMAP
$749,900|Sun 1-4|Kathy & Melissa Murphy, Edina
Though wallpaper is making a comeback, this could stand a little updating.  Looks great from the curb, so still very cool.
Valleyview1
209 Valleyview Place, Minneapolis
|GMAP
$675,000|Sun 12:30-2:00|Beth Urban, CB-Burnet
This one begs for Cedar Shakes.  Bigger than it looks at 2800 square feet, and we dig the screen porch.
Queen_avenue1
4900 Queen Avenue, Minneapolis
|GMAP
659,900|Sun 1-4 | Sharon Ritchie, CB-Burnet
Love this part of Minneapolis.  See that stop sign to the right? That intersection is a skating rink in winter. We’ve slid through it maybe 1,000 times.
Beard1
5233 Beard Avenue South, Minneapolis
|GMAP
$399,500|Sun 3-5|Sandy and Buzz Bainbridge, Edina
Something about this works. Love the porch and decor except for the WHITE, WHITE, WHITE Kitchen.
Brooklyn_center1
6818 Beard Avenue N., Brooklyn Center
|GMAP
$224,900|Sun 1-4|Ken Carpenter, RE/MAX Results
A pool, that isn’t above ground, under 225k?  Were sold.  A little bit of Beverly Hills in Brooklyn Center.  Who knew?

If only I had 800-thousand dollars… nice to see you back blogging. Hope you’ve had a good summer!

800? Just buy the joint with the pool in BC.

Seriously.
