EcoVillage Rehab to be Featured in Minneapolis/St. Paul Home Tour!
Post and photo by the Hawthorne Hawkman
The list of properties for the Minneapolis/St. Paul Home Tour has been released! This time around, Hawthorne's representative is 3011 6th St N. This house is part of the MURL program, and has a buyer. The photo above was just taken, while work is still being done. This place will look terrific when the work is complete - which includes preservation or restoration of much of the original woodwork inside.
ADDENDUM: This post originally credited the North News with releasing the information regarding properties on the home tour. A Hawthorne resident gave me a paper copy of the North News and inside that was a separate paper copy of the home tour. Since I had worked with a contact person, Realtor Margo Ashmore, at North News on getting the property on the home tour, I assumed that the two newspaper items were one and the same. They are not, and that has been corrected in how the post appears now.
I remember this property well. Back when I had to make regular passes through the EcoVillage just to be sure that nothing had been broken open or burned down, I came across a squatter in the place. Days after that incident was reported to the Realtor, the price dropped.
Now the house will soon boast yet another new owner-occupant in the EcoVillage and we get to use it to also show off the new construction that will begin soon. This is progress!
