Cedar Isles Dean
Visitors to Minneapolis commonly remark with surprise and praise about the city's residential communities—miles and miles of handsome, well-maintained single-family neighborhoods. And as an additional feature, despite the city's regular overall street grid, unique enclaves appear here and there throughout Minneapolis, in response to natural features like water and hills, or simply because of an imaginative subdivision plat.
The largest and surely most striking of these exceptions to the grid is the Cedar Isles Dean neighborhood, a recent planners' label for an amorphous area traditionally (if not strictly accurately) known to everyone as Kenwood.
This is a land of contrasts. It is physically disengaged from the rest of Minneapolis by lakes Cedar, Isles, and Calhoun. Located within the city, it is by definition urban, yet houses on either side of the France Avenue boundary with suburban St. Louis Park are of a piece. The signature tangletown neighborhood between Kenwood Park and Kenilworth Place is a memorable upper-income area of single-family house, with wooded, elegantly winding streets and expanses of water in every direction. Yet it is within a few minutes' walk of modest-cost rental apartments on Xerxes Avenue.
Downtown is conveniently close, reached, graciously, along parkways. Uptown is just beyond Lake of the Isles. Dozens of restaurants are located within a five-minute drive, as are distinctive grocery stores like Whole Earth and Byerlys. Cub Foods is five minutes' farther.
Of course the three lakes are a major attraction. Not just visual treasures, they also offer walking, bicycling, swimming, fishing, canoeing, and sailing—skating, hockey, and cross-country skiing in the winter. Naturally this area is highly desirable!
East Isles Real Estate
This highly desirable neighborhood west of Hennepin Avenue is built on the south flank of Lowry Hill, as it slopes into Lake of the Isles. Planners define the neighborhood boundary between the two at 22nd Street. But visually, this boundary is seamless. As a generalized observation, though, the largest, most imposing houses are found between Mount Curve and Summit, in Lowry Hill neighborhood, while the houses of East Isles are comparatively less impressive. Even so, the neighborhood holds several architectural landmarks, notably the Purcell house on Lake Place. Though East Isles is characterized by detached houses, the neighborhood also includes some duplexes and scattered apartment buildings, with a clustering of apartments south of the 29th Street Midtown Greenway. Even so, the line of mansions along E. Lake of the Isles Boulevard certainly equals the grandeur of Mount Curve.East Isles orients in each direction to a distinctive influence. Downtown is to the north, only a few minutes away by car or bus. To the south, the neighborhood merges into Uptown. These two centers are connected by the vibrant, occasionally outright funky Hennepin Avenue, which defines the easterly border of this otherwise-serene neighborhood. But Lake of the Isles is the major attraction, understandably so, a paradise for walkers and bicyclists who appreciate the park's exceptional scenic beauty.

West Calhoun Minneapolis Homes for Sale
Defined by the Excelsior Boulevard corridor, Lake Calhoun, 36th Street, and the city limits at France Avenue, West Calhoun is more of a collection of disparate adjacent environments—a few blocks of single-family houses, an apartment district, retail, and office—than it is a cohesive residential area. Nothing at all bad about this: with everything visually broken down into small settings (other than the lake itself), West Calhoun has an interesting, ever-changing personality.
In terms of land area, Minikahda Club is dominant; but with the clubhouse tucked away from sight up on a hill, and the wooded golf course visible only in pieces from any one vantage, the property is not overwhelming, but rather reads as a handsome landscaped open space.
While the area is only a short drive to the popular Linden Hills and 50th and France retail corners, a newer boutique center with Whole Foods and several restaurants offers routine convenience within an easy walk of apartment/condo dwellers living in the northerly section. Like the adjacent Cedar Isles Dean community, West Calhoun is very close to Byerlys and the abundance of convenience retail and services along Excelsior Boulevard and at Miracle Mile in St. Louis Park.
