University Grove... Unique University Enclave of Mid-century Modern Homes

By Homesmsp @HomesMSP

If you are a University relocation and/or looking for a classic mid-century modern home, don't miss the awesome and unique University Grove neighborhood. Only 8 blocks long and one and a half blocks wide, University Grove is nestled between the University of Minnesota St. Paul campus and Luther Seminary... and between the University golf course and the awesome St. Anthony Park neighborhood of St. Paul.  It feels like St. Anthony Park, but this is a separate community with a Falcon Heights address in the Roseville school district.

This group of 103 homes built for UMN professors and administrators on land owned by the University of Minnesota over a 60-year period is an architectural time capsule. Because each home had to be designed by an architect with a maximum ceiling on costs, no two houses are alike and they create a cohesive mix. The early homes were mostly Tudor or colonial styles, but later houses showed the strong influence of the Bauhaus and international style... creating a unique enclave of mid-century modern homes.

"The Park", as neighborhood residents affectionately refer to St. Anthony Park, is one of St. Paul's premier walkable neighborhoods, with a neighborhood services including a grocer, bank, restaurants/coffee shops, small specialty shops, churches, schools, and a Carnegie library, the busiest in the the metro area.
