An article in Money Magazine ranked Chanhassen Minnesota #1 in Minnesota and #16 in the nation as one of the best places to live. Many of those who own Chanhasssen homes never saw that magazine article.

They already knew that this was a great place to live. Besides, they think that article is off-base. People in Chanhassen believe that the town should be rated #1 in the nation as well. Also, that article was written in 2005. Since then, the quality of life has become even better. If you are thinking of buying Chanhassen homes a new freeway has made your commuting distance to Minneapolis a non-issue. It is only 17 miles southwest of the Twin Cities anyway, and the new freeway means you don’t have to restrict yourself to looking for suburban Minneapolis homes in the first or second tier communities. Chanhassen real estate is now a viable option for anyone who commutes to the Twin Cities.

Here are just a few reasons why owners of Chanhassen homes think their town should be rated #1:

  • This is a friendly, rapidly growing community. Chanhassen has a traditional downtown area that is the center of activity for business, entertainment and recreation. Celebrations and year-round festivals receive an enormous amount of support from the citizens, and help to maintain the small-town atmosphere. If you want a family-friendly neighborhood, check out Chanhassen homes.
  • The residents are vigilant about preserving the natural beauty of this area. If you own a Chanhassen MN home, you might not be spending much time indoors. You will be out and about on the vast network of bike trails and parks. The name “Chanhassen” means “sweet sap,” and there is certainly no shortage of maple trees here. Spend some time outdoors here, and you will find it hard to believe that the town contains over 600 business enterprises, including retail, service, and commercial office centers that employ 9500 people.
  • Chanhassen has a number of fully recreational lakes. You have plenty of choices for places to go waterskiing, and the fishing is excellent. Chanhassen homes with lakefront are affordable, too!
  • The educational needs of the community are served by an excellent school system. Children will attend Chaska School District 112 or Minnetonka School District 276. Both of these districts are recognized for academic excellence. There are also good choices among a number of private schools. The good reputation of the local schools is a big factor in quality of life, and supports the property value of Chanhassen homes.

Do you want to live on a lake? You might be interested in a Chanhassen lake home on Lotus Lake, a 245 acre fully-recreational lake full of bass and walleye. Lake Minnewashta might also be an option for you if you are looking for Chanhassen real estate with lakeshore. This 738 acre lake offers some excellent bass fishing. The beauty of this Lake is enhanced by the 340 acre Minnewashta Regional Park, which occupies the southern and eastern lakeshore. There are also a few other lakes that offer Chanhassen lakeshore living opportunities.
