This Stonebridge townhouse provides the finest in worry-free living while offering all the storage that might be needed when moving from a traditional single family home. Built to exacting standards for which this development has become known, every detail of this fine home speaks of quality. Its spacious foyer with its niche for displaying art or fresh flowers offers a place to welcome guests. The graciously-appointed great room with its high vaulted ceiling and cheery fireplace, flanked with carefully-crafted wood built-ins, invites convivial, relaxed conversation. Meals of any formality will be a pleasure to serve in the dining area which separates the great room and the kitchen.
Banks of cherry cabinets and yards of durable and easy-to-clean Corian keep all your cooking needs readily at hand with ample space to easily plan and prepare a multi-course meal. A granite-topped center island separates the cooking area from the dining area and provides “breakfast bar” space when needed. A substantial pantry cabinet adjacent to the meal preparation area keeps all your kitchen supplies and instruments readily at hand. Thanks to thoughtful kitchen design which has everything in its logical and most efficient location, meal preparation will be a pleasure. Tasteful ceramic tile floors in the entrance, kitchen and dining areas combine contemporary class with ease of maintenance and clean-up.
A doorway from the dining area takes you to the breezy screened sun porch which catches light from the south and west, making a marvelous place to take morning coffee and read the paper, enjoy a late-afternoon libation, check the latest email traffic and Facebook postings in season.
An audio system with ceiling speakers installed in the great room, master suite and den/office allows the broadcast of an important game or soothing music throughout the main floor.
The spacious master bedroom is flooded with morning sun. A substantial walk-in closet has sufficient room to accommodate a sizeable wardrobe. The master bath features a long cabinet with widely-separated twin sinks and ample linen storage. An expansive jetted soaking tub provides the opportunity for a truly decadent bath. A classy tiled shower completes the suite.
A den/office/study located just off the foyer features its own gas fireplace and a huge closet. This space is truly large enough to operate a home-based business or to serve – as designed – as a fourth bedroom, a fact reinforced by the presence of a full bath just around the corner. A laundry room with excellent cabinet space fills out the functional needs of the main floor along with a large owner’s coat closet and another, smaller closet for guest’s coats located near the front door.
The attached 2-car garage is finished inside and has a large storage area for bikes, seasonal equipment and other out-door gear.
The lower level with its large, multi-purpose family/amusement/recreation room, two spacious, sunny bedrooms (both with large closets) and ¾ bath provide all the extra space needed for extra living area, guest quarters and family gatherings.
Mechanical systems include central air, humidifier, air-to-air exchanger, water softener and water filtration system. With its immense storage capacity in the garage, closets and storage room, this townhouse is a superb alternative to the traditional single family home.
The location is ideal. Both Minneapolis and St. Paul downtowns are readily and quickly accessible as is the airport. I nonni, an award-winning Italian restaurant known for its wine-tastings is but steps away and paired with the Buon Giorno Italia deli which continues to receive rave reviews. A full range of shopping lies only minutes to the south in Eagan’s Town Centre shopping area.
The pass-code protected community entrance gate assures a high level of both privacy and security. The homeowner’s association is professionally-managed and exceptionally well-run. The common areas of the community are beautifully manicured in summer and efficiently cleared in winter.
