The natural beauty of the Minnesota River Valley surrounds this property near Mankato, which offers bags of space and bags of land for six figures.

On the market for $899,999, this Lake Crystal property is on the south side of the Minnesota River, about halfway between Mankato and New Ulm – perfect for a quick jaunt to the Schell's Brewery.

For your money, you get 6,316 square feet of floorspace set upon 50 acres of land overlooking the valley, which sits back on the end of a long driveway off of Hwy. 68.

It offers privacy, then, making it a possible hideaway for outdoor lovers who can take advantage of sprawling grounds that are a haven for wildlife drawn to the nearby river.

The main house is filled with oak hardwood floors and woodwork, including in the "Great Room" that has for its centerpiece a custom stone fireplace.

The kitchen opens up onto the Great Room, making it an idea entertaining space, while off to the side of the kitchen is a four-season porch that offers views of the surrounding scenery on three sides.

The grounds also come with a 1,500 square foot "shed" that is effectively a second property, though it is also referred to in the listing as a (sigh) "man cave."

The current owners also own two more parcels of land that comprise 17 more acres, that you can add to the purchase should you so choose.

Dennis and Daniel Terrell of RE/Max Dynamic Agents of Mankato have the listing. He can be contacted on (507) 340-4562, or by emailing dynamicagentsmn@gmail.com. You can see the listing here.
