Every once in a while an opportunity comes along to live in an iconic home. 1698 Dodd Road in Mendota Heights is such a property… the house architect Sara Susanka designed for herself in 1987 and built in 1988 that is said to have been the inspiration for her book, “The Not So Big House”.  She called this book ‘the blueprint for the way we really live,’ and in the 20 years since her name has become synonymous with homes that value quality over quantity and that emphasize comfort, beauty, and a high level of detail… and lives that make room for what really matters.

Situated on a private 4.5 aces the stunning open design brings the outside in, with a Prairie School feel and an Asian flair given by her signature round window. If this is the kind of home you have dreamed of living in, your dream could come true. Currently listed for sale at $1,575,000 this could become your next home. Not ready to buy? Another option is renting for $6,500 a month.  More info on 1698 Dodd Road… we would love to help you make this noted architect’s former home your new home.

The Twin Cities of Minnesota… where there is always tonic in the air and wine in the winds…

We just finished a fascinating course to become 'Old Home Certified', which of course included some history of the Twin Cities. While the current growth of the LRT lines makes it feel to me like we are becoming a 'grown-up' metro area, it was transit lines way back in the railroad era 1880-1920 that enabled.
