Curb Appeal Enthusiasm: Weekend Open House Picks

by Alex Stenback on February 12, 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.

243 Blake Road S. | Hopkins
$600K | Sun 1-4 | Dressel Meadows

1937 with hipped roof – who knew.  All brick, all the time. Updates look nicely done.

243 Bushaway Road | Wayzata
$500K | Sun 1-3 | Tony Trout

Main floor especially looks great, plus I always go in for big, open front porches.

4725 2nd Avenue S. | Minneapolis
$349.9K | Sun 1-3 | Faith McGown

Love the way these old craftsman foursquares front the street – defines solid. Try to get stucco of this quality today.

3252 Colfax Avenue S. | Minneapolis
269.9K | Sat 11-1/Sun 1-4 | Lynne Alpert

I will admit the picket fence on this cottage sucked me in.  Inside has some intriguing and unique detail.

   3502 Grand Avenue S. | Minneapolis
199.9K | Sat 1-3 | Dawnn Green

Woods and period details inside look awesome.  Personally I’d open that porch up.  There is a Zen pond out back. Oohhhmmmmmm…..

   2950 Upton Ave. N. | Minneapolis
118.9K | Sun 12-3 | Ron Olsonoski

Drop this baby in Linden hills and you can double the price – unbeatable curb appeal at this number really.
