Letter to Buyers

Hello Friends!

Welcome to 3137 NE Garfield Street.  Get ready to fall in love with your home.  We became the second occupants of this rock-solid 1957 rambler in 2007.  Since then, we’ve made some incredible friends and memories on Garfield Street – and we know you will too.

Do you like entertaining? This is the spot. The main floor flows fantastically for entertaining large groups. The lower level has an incredible bar and game area, along with plenty of room for watching a movie or the big game. If you hadn’t noticed, the double lot in the middle of the block makes this house the center of outdoor living.  We’ve had enormous gatherings – grilling, bonfires, yard games, our neighborhood kids playing night games.

If gardening is of interest to you, congratulations – you’re about to walk into an urban oasis right in your backyard.  I’ve been a master gardener since 2009 (and was raised by owners of a greenhouse) – so it was just natural for us to grow vegetables in the huge sunny garden. You’ll find currants, blackberries, and blueberries in the east corner of the backyard. Enjoy the fabulous aroma of plum blossoms each spring as you pull your car in to the driveway! We have scores of perennials scattered throughout the yard – many of which are natives and pollinator-friendly. Two rain gardens packed with natives adorn the south yard, making sure rainwater returns to the soil and doesn’t run off into our lakes and rivers.

We’ve lovingly updated and improved 3137 Garfield with an eye for preserving all her mid-century goodness.  We’ve remodeled and finished the entire lower level, including a bathroom and two bedrooms with egress windows. We replaced the entry doors and 12-foot picture window. The hardwood floors are newly sanded and refinished, and you’ll enjoy a brand-new (installed May 2019) air-conditioning system (vented in the bedrooms through the attic, and a split-duct unit that is quiet and incredibly efficient.) We built the extended 2-car garage in 2011, which you will find one of the best things about this property. The 660 SF garage is insulated and finished with an epoxy floor coating that makes cleaning a snap. There is plenty of room for bikes, tools, camping gear, kayaks … whatever toys you might need to store.

You will not find a better block on which to live in Waite Park – hands down, we’ll miss this neighborhood the most. The short walks to Hazel’s and Sarah Jane’s are a special highlight. Garfield Street is bookended by Waite Park Elementary and Northeast Middle schools – which mean there are ample parks and open spaces. We’ve deeply enjoyed walks along St. Anthony parkway and bike rides everywhere – you can get to 20 breweries and at least three great micro-distilleries on bike or by foot (within two miles.)  But more than any of the amenities, the neighbors make this home truly exceptional. The neighborhood looks out for one another – we’ll regularly stop yardwork to catch up with a neighbor, which evolves into margaritas on someone’s deck or smores at someone’s fire pit. It’s just that kind of neighborhood.

So why leave? It is just time. As we’ve grown and changed as a family, and as our parents’ needs change, it is time to find a home that best fits us for the next decade and beyond.  Even so, it’s very difficult to say good-bye to a home that has been so wonderful for so many years.  We truly hope you love it as much as we have!

Sincerely,

The Sellers of 3137 NE Garfield Street
