Curb Appeal Enthusiasm: Weekend Open House Picks

by Alex Stenback on January 22, 2010

Curb Appeal EnthusiasmTM is a Friday feature where I scour the slate of opens for the upcoming weekend and pick out a half-dozen that catch my eye.  Totally subjective outlet for my real estate obsession.  Suggestions and reports from the field are welcome.


1721 Mount Curve Avenue | Mpls
$2.95Mil | Sun 1-4 | Debbie McNally

Awesome looking 1906 with what looks like a full renovation. This week’s real estate porn.

2097 Iglehart Avenue | St Paul
$779.9 | Sat 12.30-2 | Bob Reidell

Old-school english tudor on the east side is 100 years old and looking fabulous. Millwork inside is a highlight.

4721 Wedgewood Drive | Minnetonka
$499.9 | Sun 1-3 | Bonnie Bohn Hector

For my inner rambler fan, this one gets a nod.  Has a nice low-slung look with what looks la like a mature, fully landscaped lot.

4916 Clinton Avenue S | Minneapolis
$379.8 | Sun 12-2 | Daren Jensen

This is the part where I admit the red trim totally sucked me in.  Very nice inside - mix of classic features plus modern renovations.

5632 13th Avenue S | Minneapolis
$309 | Sun 1-3 | Betsy Rubin

Timeless “little” (2000+ sqft) brick bungalow has a great look.  Fireplace in living room understated yet awesome, plus other great architectural details.

5249 Drew Avenue S | Minneapolis
$299.9 | Sun 12.30-2.30 | Bruce Erickson

Long time followers of this feature will know that I am a sucker for yellow.  This pad looks like a little jewel-box inside, everything in order, everything interesting.
