Hobby Farm in the City (Minus the Farming)

You don’t normally expect to find a big home on 7.6(!) acres within 15 minutes of downtown Minneapolis.

In a very expensive neighborhood, to boot.

For basically the price of just the land (if not much less!).

But that’s exactly what’s for sale on McGinty Road in Minnetonka right now.

The price for the home (pictured above) and land (below) is a very reasonable sounding $700k.

Buy the Land, Get the Home for Free

The catch? (and you knew there was one)

The land is subject to a conservation easement, which prohibits all commercial uses including subdividing the land, developing it, renting it, and yes, farming it.

Still, that still seems like a helluva parcel for the right Buyer . . . .
