We’ve moved to a townhouse in Northfield at 1133 Heritage Drive, about a mile south from our Linden St. house. It overlooks Heritage Park (center) where there’s a mature pond with a walking/biking path.
Movers did the heavy stuff on Tuesday and we complete hauling everything else last night. Robbie spent more than a few hours cleaning our old house from top to bottom, prepping it for the new owners, Peter and Jesse. We’re planning a ‘meet the neighbors’ pizza party for them on Sunday.
We’re renting the townhouse on a month-to-month basis while we try to resolve our condo situation. I blogged about The Crossing in Northfield and Mendota Homes yesterday on Locally Grown.
We closed on our house today. Peter Seebach and Jesse Hajicek are the buyers. Details and photos on Locally Grown.
We have a buyer. Two weeks from today, we close on the house. We’re madly packing, as are the new owners who are moving from St. Paul.
I asked them how they found the house and what they thought of the blog:
What happened was, we hit Google for “northfield mn real estate” or something similar, found an MLS page with a couple of houses we liked, and I kept saying “I dunno, the Linden street one looks really cool”. Anyway, then I did another search with different terms, and the blog came up, and I looked at it — and immediately IMd my spouse to say “hey, look, there’s a blog for that Linden Street house”.
20:21:39 – Woah, they have a blog!
20:28:15 – I’m sold.
20:28:22 – They love that place, and everything got redone in 2006.
20:28:35 – I have written a polite email asking whether we could come have a look at it tomorrow.
We were already leaning towards “the Linden place” a bit, but the blog was absolutely the hook. We then went out to Perkins to sit around worrying that you’d already sold it.

It’s easy to find/get here as long as you don’t assume that you’re close if you’re on Linden St on the west side of Highway 3. Linden St is over there, as well. Just think “off Woodley St.” and you’ll be fine.
