25674 Hamline Court Wyoming MN 55110 MUST SEE HOME
What do you love about the neighborhood?: We love that our home is on a cul-de-sac in a heavily wooded neighborhood. It is quiet and private with good neighbors. The Sunrise River runs along the back of the property, so this combined with the mature trees create a spot that promotes the viewing of wildlife and birds. The yard is very park-like in the summer with many garden areas and we like to sit on our front porch and enjoy the view. There is also a fire pit in the back yard that we have enjoyed a lot of time around. The lack of street lights on this cul-de-sac helps to give a beautiful view of the night sky on a starry night. Our daughter-in-law says that we have the best neighborhood for walking and the public landing on Comfort Lake is just a 1 mile walk. It’s very hard to find a property with so much privacy that is only 3 miles from the I-35 freeway. It’s an easy commute for anyone working in the Twin Cities or heading ‘north’ for the weekend. It’s just under 2 hours to Duluth. We will definitely miss our home and neighborhood, but the time has come.
What are some great things about your city?: There’s a very nice bike trail that goes south to Hugo and as far north as North Branch. Another bike trail, The Swedish Immigrant Trail, is being created and when finished will go from Wyoming to Taylor's Falls on some of the oldest abandoned railway in the state. The portion that is finished is in Shafer and it’s quite pretty. There is a Fairview hospital/clinic about 3 miles from our home and for those that value chiropractic care I would highly recommend Pfeiffer Chiropractic in Wyoming. In the Fall we like to visit Lendt’s Pumpkin Patch, The Sunrise River Apple Farm, and Pine Haven has some popular Halloween activities.
What restaurants are nearby?: Food. . . well we do have our favorites, but there are many other choices. Some of our favorites are Don Julio’s in North Branch and also Chisago City, The Northern Grill in Chisago City, Joy Garden in Forest Lake, and Pizza Pub in North Branch. If you just want to meet a friend for coffee, The Nesting Grounds in Wyoming is the perfect spot.
What grocery stores or nearby shopping is there?: Bruce’s IGA is just 5 minutes away which is very convenient. Depending on your preferences there are other choices close by in Forest Lake; Cub, Aldi, Walmart, and Target.
Information about the schools in our area: We are in the Forest Lake school district however you will see Chisago Lakes school buses in this neighborhood as well since the two districts meet here. Our children went to Wyoming Elementary and then on to middle school and high school in Forest Lake. In addition to other activities offered in the schools our children were heavily involved in speech and drama. There is also YPA (Youth Performing Arts) for older school age children that was a very positive experience for our children and they put on some nice plays for the community.
What do you do for interests and hobbies near the property?: There are a number of golf courses nearby, but my husband’s ‘go to’ is Falcon Ridge in Stacy. The course has an 18-hole course and also a 9-hole executive course
Tell us about any additional property highlights, upgrades, recent updates that have been done: After some hail/weather damage, the roof was re-shingled in the Fall of 2015. One bedroom downstairs has a newer wood-laminate floor. We had intended to expand on that type of flooring, but did not get to it.
Key points about the house that we were drawn to when we first looked at the home: When we bought our property it looked exactly like what you see across the street, heavily wooded.
