4BR House for Sale: 1762 Princeton

We have lived at our home at 1762 Princeton for almost 10 years now and are doing what so many tangletown families have done before us – moving within the neighborhood. We’ll be moving just around the corner from where we are now, in January or February 2023. Our house is 4 BR, 2BA, 1800 square feet. In addition to the 4 bedrooms there is a bonus room that could be an office space. There are another 300 square feet that are close to finished in the basement, which is dry and usable. We have a one-car garage and brand new sod, patio, and landscaping in the backyard. And a new roof in 2021. Unfortunately, we have not yet invested in central air conditioning.

4BR Furnished House for Short-term Rental: 4728 29th Ave S in Minneapolis

Price: $3000 / month

Sweet 4 bedroom / 2 bathroom home in great neighborhood available January – June 2023.
We’ve got a big yard with a garden and a playset, in a neighborhood with lots of kids, walking distance from multiple playgrounds, beaches and schools.  We’re a half-block away from Minnehaha Creek and that bike trail, from which you can easily cover all of Minneapolis and much of St Paul.
The kitchen and main floor were recently renovated; we cook and eat and invite friends over frequently, so it’s well set for that.
Additionally, we have a piano, which at least one visiting jazz professor has loved.
