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.

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.
