You might think a large real estate property this close to downtown Minneapolis would have a typical street to driveway entry, special security issues and limited life style facilities. This is not the case at Birdsong Estate. The entry to Birdsong is no ordinary entrance. The Birdsong Estate includes beautiful landscaped property on both the east and west side of what the community calls “Oakland Road’s Grand Boulevard”. A special custom paver sidewalk was built on the east side of the Boulevard to provide pedestrian access. The west side of the property includes the Birdsong residence and all of the land for the future development of the property. The fencing on the back of the property, proximity to adjacent homes and only one access road provides excellent security. If you want to enjoy additional life style facilities it is only a 5 minute walk starting on the Boulevard sidewalk to Minnetonka’s Meadow Park. The park has 2 tennis courts, 4 play counts, hockey rink, informal baseball field, connected walking and cross country skiing trails and a wonderful modern children’s playground and summer children’s activity center. On your walk to Meadow Park and a few hundred feet from Birdsong is a massive 23 acre property donated to the City of Minnetonka with the Minnesota Land Trust holding a permanent conservation easement to ensure that the land remains in a natural state. Only walking trails and wildlife!
