Shingle Creek Minneapolis Real Estate
Named for the small river than runs through the eastern portion of the neighborhood, Shingle Creek is located on the northwest outskirts of Minneapolis, right on the city limits. The creek itself is named for the fact that the first shingle mill in the county was built here, in 1852.
This is a lovely picnic, fishing, and boating spot in the summertime; for anyone with a love of beautiful scenery, Shingle Creek is a wonderful place to live. The neighborhood has many suburban comforts but remains close to the heart of the city. The nature prevalent in this area is really what sells most homebuyers on the neighborhood. Shingle Creek has easy access to downtown and the freeway system, which makes it a great place to live.
Shingle Creek has two dominant architectural styles: one-story Ramblers and Bungalows. Most of these homes in the area were constructed in the 1950s. However, there are also Tudor style homes, Craftsman style, Foursquare style, and more.
