Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Champlin, Minnesota

By MidModMichelle

Hey y’all! I hope everyone is having a lovely Father’s Day! For your viewing pleasure, today’s super cool mid-century modern home comes from a suburb of Minneapolis and was designed and built by an artist. It also sits right on the Mississippi River and has quite a beautiful view. The only downside to this listing is that there aren’t enough photos of all the rooms. But I love what I see in the existing photos and I think y’all will too!

This home is located at 12154 Mississippi Dr N, Champlin, Minnesota on a large wooded lot. It is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2,940 square foot home built in 1964 that is being offered at $480,000. The listing is courtesy of Ellen Schillace at RE/MAX Results. For more information and additional photos you can check out the listing here. From the listing:

Unique Mid Century Modern is owned, designed and custom built by artist. Designed with tons of light and views of the river, it sits on half an acre. Meticulously maintained and mechanically updated (it has two furnaces), it has lots of woodwork through out, a three sided fireplace, a skylit bathroom, vaulted ceilings, informal and formal dining and many details.




(I always love these 3 sided fireplaces!)


(The original cabinets and Formica countertop are amazing! The kitchen sold me!)


(Such a cool space with the original paneling and flooring!)



So what did y’all think of this one? I definitely agree with the listing agent that it is unique! It hasn’t had too many updates as far as we can see in the existing photos. I hope the new buyer is a fan of mid-century modern so it avoids the generic makeover fate. 😊

    The house appears to be in excellent condition, and it’s good to see that the current owners have used minimal furnishings and avoided clutter. Love the kitchen countertops!
