5229 Duncraig Road in Edina Highlands

In a post earlier this week (The Far-Away(?) Buffet), I discussed clues that something “just isn’t right” in a particular photo.

So, is the apparently huge Living Room shown above for real?

You ‘betcha.

The MLS dimensions are 27′ x 17′, or 459 square feet — that’s the size of some one bedroom houses in South Minneapolis.

Meanwhile, the huge Living Room is consistent with the huge house it’s in — almost 6,800 square feet (address: 5229 Duncraig Road, in the Edina Highlands neighborhood off Vernon; listing agent is John McDonald).

I’ll see the rest of it a half hour from now, when I attend Edina’s weekly Exceptional Properties meeting . . . likely in this very same room.
