Now THAT’s Curb Appeal

Pop quiz: guess the listing price of this estate-like property (with a setting to go with) in Hopkins’ Knollwood neighborhood (just northwest of highways 169 and 7) :

A. $1.29M
B. $2.45M
C. $949k
D. $1.89M

Answer: C

What’s the explanation?

A rough market for upper bracket homes in the Twin Cities; and the fact that the home needs some cosmetic updating (some, not a ton).

Bonus question: what’s missing in the shot above?

No garage.

It’s actually on right side of the home, but what you see from the street is the back of the garage, not the front.
