City Homes’ cottage-style home, complete with a welcoming front porch, is a slice of Americana as comfortable in the country as it is in the city—or, more specifically, in the Morningside area of Edina.
The inspiration for this $2.4 million home its unique site. “It’s a very secluded, wooded lot in the heart of Edina,” explains Rebecca Remick, general manager/owner of City Homes. “We felt that the house should reflect the character of the lot and wanted to create a relaxing oasis that gave a feeling of being outside the city.”
City Homes is known for blending new homes into an existing neighborhood, as well as for being good stewards of the community and impeccable attention to detail. This 5,272-square-foot home is in a new cul-de-sac subdivision on Sidell Trail, the first new street in Edina in nearly a decade. In addition to its stellar location, the beautiful home features a large, open great room and family room, creating a gathering space, gourmet kitchen complete with a support prep kitchen, five bedrooms, and five bathrooms.
Unique features include a Minnesota Room—an extension of the main living space—with a stone fireplace and large oversized structural wood beams, emulating an actual timber frame structure. A spacious second-floor master suite, set above the pines, feels like a treetop retreat. The lower level is all about entertaining with a 12-foot custom wood bar—created with wood from a tree on the lot—and a beer tap built into the brick wall.
