What do you love about the area?: We love our quiet cul-de-sac location, centrally located between Forest Lake and Wyoming, yet, in a semi-private neighborhood surrounded by other custom upscale homes. Near freeway, businesses and schools. 155 feet of beautiful views of the lake, sunsets and nature make for an oasis in the middle of civilization. Our neighborhood is great for gatherings around campfires and front porch socializing. The neighbors are friendly and like getting together for birthdays and holidays. Location, location, location.
What are some great things about Wyoming?: We are fortunate to live within 2 miles of 2 very different towns. Forest Lake has all the retail, business and government offices as most major cities. On the other-hand Wyoming is quiet and quaint for a slower easier way of life. Our home is located on a bike/walking trail that leads to either town and makes for a wonderful experience for bikers or walkers of every level. Fairview hospital, clinics and community living are only a mile away. Our towns are far enough away from the cities for a small town feel, yet only 20 minutes away from the Twin Cities.
What restaurants are nearby?: We love to eat at Applebee's, Aqua, Norman Quacks, Keys Cafe, The Old Log Cabin, Don Julio’s Vannelli’s, there are tons of places to pick from!
What grocery stores or nearby shopping if there?: Shopping in the area has variety enough for even the pickiest of food or retail connoisseurs. There are locally owned and nationally established restaurants and grocery stores.
Information about the schools in our area: The area schools are in the middle of $180mm upgrades. There several Charter and language immersion schools to choose from. Several colleges and universities are within commuting distance, as well.
What do you do for interests and hobbies near the property?: We like touring the neighborhood in our golf cart, or on foot, with our dogs in tow. I like biking around the lake and into town for a change of scenery.
Tell us about any additional property highlights, upgrades, recent updates that have been done: Our house was constructed to include all the updates we could think of including in-floor heating in the lower level and in the master bath, panoramic views of the lake from every room, large 30 x 38' garage that can house 3 cars and several toys, benches/tools and lawn equipment. There is an additional shed for seasonal storage. Both full baths include whirlpool baths and separate showers. There is a full wet bar which includes a large bar with fridge, dishwasher, sink and dining area. The walk out basement enters into a screened in porch and then onto a concrete patio that encompasses a 36" fire pit surround by a fenced back yard on the lake. The remainder of the home is finished in upgraded moldings, stone, granite, tiles and hardwoods. The main level also includes a 4 season porch with full lake views. The exterior is finished in brick, cement board siding, and asphalt shingles. The front of the house includes a full turn around concrete driveway with island and continuation to the side of the garage with access to the back yard. The 1.5 acre yard is fully landscaped and includes an in-ground sprinkling system.
Key points about the house that we were drawn to when we first looked at the home: We built the home for entertaining and central to the area, but with a feeling of exclusivity and privacy.
