A Lake Harriet Home

This lovely home has a beautiful stone arch over the driveway. Beyond is a courtyard with a carriage house, garages, and a side entry. On this particular day, the sun was beginning to set and the waning daylight cast a golden glow across the facade.

This is a good example of why I love older homes. The craftsmanship is superb–the materials and construction hold up over time. We can’t say that about a lot of things made today. Additionally, the designs are classic, remaining uncommonly beautiful year after year. I’d like to photograph this home at twilight, with the lights on.

Below is a view of the front of the home.

There are many lovely homes along Lake Harriet Parkway in Minneapolis. I’ll be posting more photos of homes in the area in the coming days. Come back for a visit and we’ll take a virtual walking tour of Lake Harriet homes and architecture.

One of those rare real estate offerings…

I see a fair number of houses and homes such as this one are the exception rather than the rule. Warm and inviting, meticulously designed and decorated, with wonderful natural light and an ambiance that makes you want to sit and stay. It’s homes like this that are both a treat to see and to show.

A beautiful and seamless addition on the back of this home makes it larger than it looks from the front. Highlights include the arched doorways and windows, the gorgeous (original?) tile surround on the living room fireplace, the center-island kitchen with ample work and storage space, the spacious family room with custom built-in bookcases, and the three-car attached garage. The fact that it’s located just one block from Lake Harriet is another reason to love it. A true gem! Call me today for more information or to schedule a showing. I don’t expect this one to last long.

The Phelps fountain, also known as the “turtle” fountain,
at Lyndale Park by Lake Harriet in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

~~~

This fountain was moved from its former downtown Gateway site in 1962-63 when the perennial garden that surrounds it was built. It is located on the east side of the garden. The Heffelfinger fountain lies to the west of the Phelps fountain. Further west lies the Rose Gardens, the second oldest rose garden in the United States. Other places to see at Lyndale Park are the Peace Garden and the Thomas Sadler Roberts Bird Sanctuary. The picturesque setting of these gardens is frequently used for wedding ceremonies and photography shoots.
