September-October 2011 Open House
Light, bright, and airy, yet full of classic details, this 6,700-square-foot home in Shorewood is a knockout, from the gleaming mahogany floors to the jaw-dropping vaulted ceilings. Splashes of glamour (herringbone-patterned hardwoods in the dining room, anyone?) give this home its modern appeal, while the open floor plan allows for uninterrupted views of Christmas Lake. The four-bedroom, five-bath stunner offers ample room for a growing family. Listed for $2.25 million by Jacob Smith, Smith + Roffers, Lakes Sotheby’s International Realty, 952-230-3111.
This charming Afton farmhouse was built in 2007 as a nostalgic throwback to Minnesota’s agrarian roots. The hilltop home originally listed for $1.79 million, but after languishing on the market for almost four years, it sold in May for $1.25 million. It might fulfill the new owner’s Little House on the Prairie fantasies, but it also includes 18 acres of tree-dotted green, a picturesque red barn, five bedrooms, and 5,900 square feet. An outdoor patio with a kitchen, fireplace, and pergola offers a spot to enjoy the idyllic setting and endless views. Listed and sold by Sharon L. O’Flannigan, Coldwell Banker Burnet-Stillwater, 651-430-7759.
