Update 2: With the lovely economy, this house really is a bargain at $149,900. Makes me sad, but you get a great house.
Update 1:Â There will be an open house on Saturday, April 26 from 2pm-3pm. Stop by and see the house!
With my new job, comes another cross country move to a new location. Which means, sadly, we need to sell our very cool, big house. When we first purchased it in 2006, we planned on staying put for several years. There were no plans to move anytime soon, so we embarked on cleaning up and fixing the house how we wanted it. In the process we’ve improved several aspects of the house, including rewiring the living room (and pulling enough wire to complete rewiring the upstairs) updating the phone wiring for better high speedÂ internetÂ connections and installed a climbing wall in a bedroom for the kids. Now it’s finally how we imagined it to be, and we’re leaving.
The house is located in the original plot of the town of Stewartville, Minnesota, a small town 10 minutes south of Rochester, MN. It’s the birthplace of Richard Sears, (we can see the house he grew up in from ours.) The neighbors are wonderful, the neighborhood is quiet, and there’s a city park just around the corner with trails and picnic tables and a great play area for kids.
If you work in Rochester (possibly at Mayo Clinic or IBM–the area’s two largest employers), there’s a commuter bus stop a mere 2 minute walk from the house! That’s how I’ve gone to work the past 18 months. It’s great. Had I not accepted my new position, we’d be happily living in this wonderful house for a long time.
So if you are looking to buy in the area, or know someone who is, let them know aboutÂ this great house.
