August 2012 Open House
Combine unmatched location with distinctive style and you get 8 Park Lane, ideally situated on the picture-perfect Kenilworth Channel between Lake of the Isles and Cedar Lake. Designed by architect Timothy Greer and constructed in 2002, the 5,800-square-foot home combines elegance and charm with extensive detail and upgrades—not to mention extensive views of Cedar Lake. The site was purchased in December 2000 for $1.2 million before the present home was designed and constructed. It’s listed for $3.35 million by the Barry Berg Group of Coldwell Banker Burnet.
It’s one of the most iconic houses in Edina, primarily because of its lofty perch off of the busy 50th Street thoroughfare, just east of Hwy. 100. But the beauty of this historic and majestic home is actually not street side, but from the rear, where it overlooks Mill Pond with 370 feet of creek shore. Still, 4933 Sunnyslope Road E., originally constructed in 1937 and extensively and beautifully updated, recently sold for 21 percent off of the original list price of $3.3 million. The 2.3 acre estate, listed by Babette Bean of Edina Realty, sold for $2.595 million.
