7490 North Shore Circle N Forest Lake MN 55025 OPEN HOUSE Saturday September 16th From 12 To 200pmo
What do you love about the area?: When I come home from work, I always feel like I am on vacation. There is 188 feet of lakeshore which is naturalized. Take in the breathtaking sunsets from the house or the dock. Watch the 4th of July Fireworks from the yard or dock. The yard consists of mowed green areas, many trees, many mature gardens including 100s of varieties of Hostas, and naturalized areas. Watch the bald eagles, loons, ducks, hawks, and many other species of birds that stop by. Quiet circle neighborhood road where it is nice to take a walk or a bike ride. The neighbors are friendly and look out for each other.
What are some great things about Forest Lake?: I love the small town feel of Forest Lake. Tuesday nights during the summer with Arts in the Park in the downtown park. There is music, food, and people selling homegrown veggies, bakery items, and many other things. There are many locally owned restaurants/shops in town. There is a community theatre that puts on a play during the summer. Try out and you may become a star. A short drive from the cities. We have a movie theatre and a golf course.
What restaurants are nearby?: My favorite restaurant is Norman Quacks. It is a family owned restaurant. There is Famous Dave's, Applebees, Meet Market, Aqua, Keys, Vannelli's, Stella's, Big Apple Bagel and Cherry's Ice Cream, just to name a few. There are many fast food places including Subway, Arby's, McDonald's, Dairy Queen, Burger King, Taco John's, Taco Bell and White Castle. No need to go hungry here.
What grocery stores or nearby shopping is there?: We have a Target, Walmart, Home Depot, Menards, Cub, Aldi's, Ace Hardware. There are a few antique/second hand shops. Always new shops/restaurants opening.
What do you do for interests and hobbies near the property?: Enjoy the lake on a boat, pontoon, canoe, kayak, wave runner or just swim off the shore. Try your hand at fishing in the summer and the winter. Snowmobile, cross country ski, or snowshoe on the lake. Go for a lovely walk or bike ride after dinner in the neighborhood or on the trail that is in town.
Tell us about any additional property highlights, upgrades, recent updates that have been done: Other property highlights and recent updates would include a new roof put on in 2015 and an ABC Seamless Steel siding installed in 1997. Prairie Restoration has naturalized a portion of the shoreline. In 2012, a new carpet (corn based product - does not stain) in the carpeted areas in the lower level and upper balcony was installed as well as new sink/counter, faucets, crystal chandeliers and toilets in the bathrooms. New flooring was also installed in the upstairs bathroom. A new dryer was installed in 2013. Installed in 2014 were a new dishwasher, double oven, disposal, range hood and pump, and in 2016, a new washer and a garage door opener.
Key points about the house that we were drawn to when we first looked at the home: We bought the property because it had so many trees and the shoreline was so large. It was a palette to start the many gardens.
