Minnetonka Real Estate


Once known by local Indians as “the big water” Minnetonka, Minnesota has evolved from a wilderness area to a 19th century mill town, a popular resort area, and finally, to what it is today, a charming residential city of freeways, shopping centers and manicured lawns.

The 14,528 acre Lake Minnetonka is irregularly shaped, with numerous bays and islands, and has afforded Minnetonka real estate developers the opportunity to construct many waterfront property homes although the city of Minnetonka, itself includes within its borders only Gray’s Bay, a small bay forming the headwaters of Minnehaha Creek.

A suburban community of nearly 52,000 residents, Minnetonka, Minnesota is a scenic region of mature trees, wetlands, prairies, numerous community parks, more than 1,000 acres of publicly accessible open space and some forty miles of hiking and biking nature trails.

Three public school districts, as well as a parochial school and an accredited private college prep school serve the city of Minnetonka’s school children.

The city of Minnetonka is located in Hennepin County, eight miles west of Minneapolis. The easy commute to and from the Minneapolis business district has considerably increased the desirability of owning Minnetonka real estate.
