James Denero did a great job with this listing. Not only does he have 8 photos, he has 10, and some of them are split into two frames showing both perspectives on a room. Good idea. I can finally understand what I’m looking at when I view a room. It looks like it’s been listed before since there is part of an old sign in the yard and Google Street View shows something other than a Re/Max sign.
The house is in a pretty cool location. Definitely close enough to jog over to Lake Calhoun or Harriet. And far enough west to avoid some of the challenges neighborhoods closer to 35W have been dealing with (but still close enough for easy access to the Interstate). Of course, it’s still not a place where you’d want to leave your iPod sitting on your dash. 36th Street is a bit of an artery street in that area since traffic bottlenecks onto 36th after hitting Calhoun or Harriet to the West.
Being on the end of a block rather than on a block makes the location a bit awkward for some people.
Uptown is walkable (I’d go West then North) and so are the cool restaurants at 38th & Grand. I’m not sure what restaurants are over on Nicollet near here, but there must be something.
The house looks like it’s in awesome shape. The hardwood floors look great. The bathroom tiles look news. The appliances look like they’ve been updated recently and check out the size of the washer & dryer: that’s industrial strength stuff.
I like the light the house gets, and an accessible garage is always a plus in Minneapolis. A few plants in front of the staircase could do wonders for the curb appeal.
At $239,900, it seems like a good deal to me.
