Unlocking The Twin Cities: Massive Home On Lake Calhoun
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Whether it’s square footage or the size of the lot, real estate space comes at a premium in a big city, and there’s one property on Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis has plenty of both.
The lot of 3512 West Calhoun Parkway is nearly one and one-quarter acre, which is the largest residential lot on the chain of lakes in Minneapolis.
Inside the home, there’s 7,500 square feet of finished space, which includes five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The master suite includes massive his and hers closets.
“I really haven’t seen a closet of that size here in (Minneapolis),” says Babette Bean with Edina Realty, who has listed the property for $2.9 million. “It just goes on and on.”
The property was originally two lots with two homes, which were torn down to make room for the current house in the 1987.
“The architect designed the house so that every window overlooks the lake,” says Bean. “You feel very private (inside), but yet you have the whole view.”
The position of the pool is also unique. The Realtor believes the pool is the only one on the water-side of a home on Lake Calhoun. The pool also offers a view of downtown Minneapolis.
