Curb Appeal Enthusiasm: Weekend Open House Picks

by Alex Stenback on February 5, 2010

Curb Appeal EnthusiasmTM is a weekly feature where I scour the slate of opens and hoist a few that catch my eye. Totally subjective outlet for my real estate obsession. Reports from the field and suggestions encouraged.

18510 9th Avenue N. | Plymouth
$1.675M | Sun 1-4 | Steven Bohl

I don’t do enough new construction for open house picks, plus I drive by this one at least three times a week and it looks even better in real life. 

5049 Queen Avenue S. | Minneapolis
$489k | Sun 2-4 | Sandy & Buzz Bainbridge

Extra points if you knew this style as Dutch Colonial without reading listing remarks.  One of my favorite Minneapolis spots, plus yellow makes this an easy choice.

5022 Stevens Avenue S. | Minneapolis
$394K | Sun 11-1 | Daren Jensen

Very cool crasftsman in Tangletown (mpls).  Loving the backyard and center-cut fireplace.

5032 18th Avenue S. | Minneapolis
$330K | Sun 12-2 | Sotheby’s Lakes

Definitely something charming about the way the stone façade fronts the street.  Bigger than it looks at almost 2k sq ft

12925 55th Avenue North | Plymouth
$329.9K | Sun 1-3 | Scott Robbe

Get your inner Wang Chung on with this circa 1986 rambler.  All the period details intact, right down to skylights and especially the indoor hot-tub.

5433 Emerson Avenue S. | Minneapolis
$288.9K | Sat 1-2 | Amy Jurek

Inside renovation looks spectacular.  That is all.
