Property Showcase:  5006 Bruce Ave. in Edina

One of the interesting things about 22 mile long Minnehaha Creek is that it combines long, public stretches — like along 54th St. in South Minneapolis — with private hideaways where you’d never think to look for it.

Like in the backyard of 5006 Bruce Avenue in Edina, just south of Country Club.

The 1940 brick Colonial features one of the most dramatic Minnehaha Creek overlooks of any home in the city; it also is exceptionally well-built and updated, with 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, a terrific 3-car garage, and almost 4,500 square feet.

Price is $1.35M; Sue Wahman in Edina Realty’s 6800 France office has the listing.

P.S.:  if you weren’t already aware, the local rivers and creeks are (still) roaring. 

My favorite spots to watch:  the Stone Arch Bridge over the Mississippi across from downtown Minneapolis; and any bridge over the Minnehaha Creek (you could do worse than the one at 54th & Upton).
