Every year, I look back at some of my favorite stories that I've ever written and this, by far, is #1.  If this house ever goes back on the market, I am calling dibs!  It truly is the perfect Minnesota home.

Perfect Minnesota Home Features Brewery, Ice Rink, Pool, And Was Owned By Minnesota Twins Player

I just told my husband, "Hey, I found the perfect house for us in Minnesota.  It's all farmhouse style, which I love. It's got a brewery with 6 taps, which you would love. There is a pool, an indoor ice rink, AND it was owned by a former Minnesota Twins All-Star!" 

I heard through Citypages.com that Glen Perkins, former Minnesota Twins pitcher, had his phenomenal home in Lakeville, Minnesota on the market.  Lakeville to Rochester is a commute I could probably handle. The house is located at 24729 Dodd Boulevard in Lakeville and has 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and 5,823 square feet.  It truly is the perfect house for anyone in Minnesota and honestly, the price is a steal.

The description of the house on donedam.evrealestate.com stated:

"Escape the city life with this once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy an estate-style property situated on 10 scenic acres on Vermillion River. The centerpiece is a 2017 custom-built farmhouse, which anchors the cluster of outbuildings that have all been thoughtfully repurposed to suit an active family that loves to entertain. The property features a pool and pool house, fully equipped wood shop, a tavern with brewing room and six taps, and a covered ice hockey rink ('Miniucci') with warming house for a true Minnesota experience. The main home is a beautiful, custom-built, designer farmhouse with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, home gym, art room, and a show-stopping two-story kitchen/living area. Attention to architectural detail around every corner, an attached silo with top-floor playroom, accessible by a ladder in the children's rooms - ideal for whimsical days Your personal executive retreat awaits on 10 acres (with another 90 adjoining available), within 30 minutes of downtown."

What features would be in your dream home?

Apparently, I don't have that cash for a million-dollar home so I won't be moving there anytime soon.  I've jotted down a ton of the features in this home that I love though to help transform my current '70s home into my dream.  It is a major work in progress.

I'm curious, what is a must-have item for your dream home?  Let me know over on my Facebook page (Jessica On The Radio) or DM me on Instagram.
