3821 Standish Ave

Charming Standish Bunglaow!

SOLD! Welcome to this classic South Minneapolis bungalow located in the heart of the Standish neighborhood. 

Step into the front porch with windows. This light-filled entryway has the original louver glass window panes. Add a bench and wall hooks so you can sit while you remove your shoes, and hang up your coat. The living room is spacious with high ceilings, original hardwood floors, and tall windows that stream in a lot of bright sunlight. The dining room still retains its original buffet built-ins.

Bright sunroom is an exquisite feature at the front of the house. Imagine filling it with hanging plants, books, arm chairs, and turning it into a cozy corner. 

The kitchen boasts original cabinetry from the 1916 era, with modern-day countertops. There are two bedrooms on the main floor. Both can comfortably fit in a queen-size bed. They can also function very well as a nice office, nursery , or a hobby/multi-purpose room. 

The partially-finished basement with new carpet has wonderful equity-building opportunities. High ceilings offers potential for a redesign…family or gaming room, or perhaps an office anyone! Put in an egress window and, voila, you have a 3rd bedroom. There’s also space to add a small bathroom if you so desire. The in-house workshop area is always useful.

Relax in the large backyard, which is a gardener’s haven. From berry bushes to fruit trees to native plantings, its your private green oasis of calm. Dine out on the brick patio. 

Two-car garage with plenty of space for extra storage. This lovely home is a hop, skip and a jump away from Roosevelt library, Hiawatha and Nokomis Lakes, Hiawatha and Sibley Parks and Rec., pubs, coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, schools, and all that South Minneapolis has to offer. 

Conveniently near and accessible to Blue line light rail, Highway 55, bus routes to Uptown, Downtown and everywhere else, and, of course bike trails. 

Bike and walk score: Very, very high.
