Why we have a crush on this property

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the heart-stamped home near Lake Harriet has hit the market in Minneapolis. Built in 1921, the little green bungalow isn’t afraid to show its true colors as a charming alternative to an apartment or condo—vibrant paint choices make the place a cheery escape from winter in Minnesota.

Inside, original woodwork lends antique charm to every room. But the vintage flair doesn’t stop there: the bathroom boasts a cast iron clawfoot tub and a built-in medicine cabinet, while a period linen closet and classic door knobs throughout the home complete the retro package.

The 889-square-foot house’s pint-sized kitchen has been renovated to make the most of its small space, offering tall, ceiling-flush cabinets and space for open shelving above the fridge. As for other contemporary updates, there’s also new electrical wiring in the home, as well as a new water heater and a routinely serviced furnace.

A huge basement holds the potential for refinishing, but for now, offers a new washer, a dryer, a deep utility sink, and space for another refrigerator or freezer. Outside, a reasonably sized yard with a small garage acts as the cherry on top of this neatly packaged treat.

The home near Minneapolis’ tony 50th & France shopping district is listed for $325,000 by Joshua Schrock and Eric Robinson of Wits Realty.
