It's not often that you find value for money when it comes to property in Edina, which is what makes the home at 5859 Long Brake Trail such a rare opportunity.

The 1979-built two-story has everything you could want from a single family home: spacious yet cozy, filled with natural light, and set on a beautifully landscaped lot.

Creatively designed across its 4,254 finished square footage, and located in the Dewey Hill neighborhood where houses regularly change hands for seven figures, it's a relative steal at $749,900.

Found on the quiet, meandering Long Brake Trail not far from the popular Braemer Golf Course, its 0.38 acre wooded lot offers quiet seclusion and a mere 20-minute commute to downtown Minneapolis.

You won't be short of room for entertaining thanks to a layout that manages to achieve that trickiest of balancing acts of being open and airy yet warm and cozy.

The center of family life can be found in the great room, which is dominated by a stunning brick fireplace and opens to a sunny kitchen and breakfast area.

Each of its five bedrooms – four on the upper, one on the lower level – has space to spare. The grand suite features a walk-in closet and a second fireplace.

With expansive windows throughout the home, bringing the outdoors inside, maximizing light was clearly a key goal of the architect.

Entertaining guests? In addition to a wonderful guest suite, the walk-out lower level also offers a sun-filled family room, and a wet bar.

This unique and flexible floorplan could be perfect for multi-generational living.

Commuters have plenty of space to store their vehicles thanks to a three-car garage with oodles of storage, while a main level office provides ample room to work from home.
