Coldwell Banker Real Estate - 283425442

This property is a rarity! Seldom is it possible to find a home that has been positioned this close to the bluff. The benefit of the close proximity to the bluff is the view and the easy accessibility to the river. Todays regulations would not enable a structure to be built in this location. Access to the river is by stair system that has been built into the bluff enabling a 40 ft. dock to be placed on the 200+ ft. of privately owned frontage. The ease of accessibility to the river offers boating each night when returning from work. As this home is located just south of the mouth of Kinnickinnic River, boating north for five minutes enables swimming or picnicking on the sand beach of the River. How delightful can this be on a summer evening!The home is the perfect river home, offering views from every space as a result of the recent renovations that have taken place. The renovations and additions have created an open plan based upon a great room concept. The kitchen with cherry cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, flows to the vaulted and beamed great room that is dominated by a 2-story stone, wood burning fireplace and to the spacious dining room that overlooks the river.The private owner's suite is located on the main level, just off the great room and is enclosed by double doors. This space is also very impressive with views of the river, a private deck from which to enjoy the views and a stunning bath. The private bath includes all Kohler fixtures. The walk-in shower features a body spray system with multiple jets to sooth, an effervescence whirlpool tub, and two separate vanities. The tub also enjoys a view of the river. Located just outside the owners private bath is a hot tub and deck. Imagine sitting in the hot tub under the stars, listening to the sounds of nature, and then retiring to bed. What a luxurious lifestyle!This riverside house also has an office on the entry level. A large shop area is at this level that also includes the mechanical systems. A tuck under 2 car heated garage, a dog washing station and extensive storage is located on the entry level as well. The seclusion and river location nestled among the pines, provide the Northwoods atmosphere without the necessity of hours in the car to reach a cabin. While the atmosphere in Northwoods, access to both downtowns of Minneapolis and St. Paul & the international airport is only short drive to the west via Prescott.
