4428 45th Ave S sits at the Southern end of the Longfellow community in the Hiawatha neighborhood. There is a lot to like about this location. It’s only blocks from Minnehaha Park where you can dine on fish tacos while drinking a Summit within feet of Minnehaha Falls at Sea Salt followed by a stop at Dairy Queen on your way home. Good living.
Being on 45th, it doesn’t have the higher traffic volume one sees on 46th or 42nd Aves. 46th is the first N-S thru-street from Lake to the Ford Bridge, so gets quite a bit of traffic. It’s also a bus route from 46th to 38th St. Being a block off of that has some advantages. It’s also a short walk to the 46th St LRT station.
The house is a 3 bed 1 bath 1300 sq ft bungalow with lots of updates. The kitchen appliances look great and the 2nd floor has been updated. The fenced in backyard appears to be dog ready. And it has central air, which is by no means standards in older Minneapolis homes.
Thanks to skadi for the tip. And thanks to others who have sent in tips. I’ll get those rolled out soon.
By the way, ryanol Tweeted earlier today looking for Minneapolis neighborhood recommendations for S or SW Minneapolis homes in the 180-240K range. Give him a shout or drop a comment here if you have advice you’d like to share. Personally, I think he needs to decide if he’s a river person or lake person first. That will narrow things down a bit.
