Last week we took a look at what the median sales price of a home in North Oaks would purchase and, as promised, this week we’ll look at the two extremes of the North Oaks real estate market price range.
Cheapest Homes in North Oaks
Suffice it to say, North Oaks isn’t the city for someone looking to buy an entry-level priced home. The three least expensive homes in the city are all priced at more than $400,000.
For almost a half million dollars you can purchase the lowest priced home in North Oaks. Built in 1976, this home sits on almost two acres of land and features four bedrooms, two full and one partial bathroom and 3,408 square feet of living space.
The 2-story colonial home sits on a hill overlooking green space and it’s had some updates done.
Although the tax records claim this home is colonial it looks Mediterranean to me. It features four bedrooms, three full and one partial bathroom in 4,630 square feet of living space. The kitchen features black slate-like floors and an island. The rest if this two-story home has wood or carpeted floors.
This circa 1981 home sits on a half-acre of land with lots of privacy. It’s been on the market for one week.
The third least expensive home for sale in North Oaks is a rambler that offers four bedrooms, two full and one partial bathroom in 4,139 square feet of living space. Built in 1957, it sits on 1.59 acres that overlook open space. This home is in the Mounds View School District.
Most Expensive Homes in North Oaks
If you are looking at luxury homes for sale in the Twin Cities metro area, North Oaks is the ideal place to start. Eleven of the city’s 33 current listings are priced at more than $1 million.
North Oak’s priciest home on the market features four bedrooms, two full and one partial bathroom and more than 7,000 square feet of living space. Built in 1976, the home’s most impressive feature is its location – more than 1.5 acres of prime Pleasant Lake shoreline.
The listing agent’s remarks leave out the fact that the home includes a dock, accessed by traversing a park-like backyard.
Inside you’ll find architectural delights, such as cherry-trimmed windows, a rear-projection theatre room, heated floors and walls and a pool. Although the listing remarks claim an “infinite edge pool” (assuming he means an infinity edge pool) with a waterfall, the photos belie that claim. It’s a lovely pool, mind you, it just isn’t an infinity edge one and a waterfall isn’t in the photos.
Bring the car collection as this home offers a five-car garage.
The second most expensive home in North Oaks is the quintessential “luxury home.” The drive to the home takes you through heavily wooded areas until you reach the circular driveway that fronts the estate.
Built in 1995, this 11,183 square-foot home has been completely remodeled. The kitchen is beyond gourmet, with two islands (one contains the gas cooktop range), and more space than many well-appointed chef’s kitchens.
The master suite of this five-bedroom estate includes a sunny seating area and, in the laundry room you’ll find dual washers and dryers and a large island for folding laundry. A wine room and a large office are other highly sought-after features included in this home that sits on a little more than 2.5 acres.
The value of this home is definitely in the location and in the fact that it sits on more than three acres in a heavily wooded area between Deep Lake and Pleasant Lake.
The home features four bedrooms and five full bathrooms in 6,600 square feet of living space. Built in 2003, it doesn’t appear to have been updated, and, judging by the photos, it may need it.
The median sales price of a North Oaks home in December was $655,856 and the above-mentioned homes highlight the upper and lower end of the price spectrum of homes for sale in North Oaks.
