Linden Hills Minneapolis Real Estate
Minneapolis is a fairly large city, so when house hunting, it's a good idea to check out specific neighborhoods to determine the best place to settle down. Linden Hills is one of the larger neighborhoods in Minneapolis. It is located in the southwestern part of the city. To the north, you'll find Lake Calhoun, one of Minneapolis most visited areas, and to the east you'll find Lake Harriet.
Linden Hills is a very developed and upscale place to live within the city. This neighborhood was first developed in the late 1800s and was named for its linden trees. The developers hoped to persuade homeowners to purchase cottages on the lakefronts, most of which have been renovated. Many of the homes in the area are now large Tudors or bungalows, but the city's historical roots shine through.
