More than 60 years ago, Carl Hansen found an opportunity to turn western Edina into a different kind of Edina neighborhood. Diverging from standards set by the Edina Country Club, he chose to create a family-friendly area with meandering, tree-lined streets, larger lots and walkout lower levels. The first two developed streets, Parkwood Road and Knoll Drive, gave the Edina neighborhood its name: Parkwood Knolls.
Parkwood Knolls is the only Edina neighborhood that gives you the option to build a new home. Choose from a variety of Parkwood Knolls homes for sale, featuring beautifully maintained and updated ramblers that sprawl across extra-large lots. Or finance a rare, spacious building site designated for building your custom, Edina neighborhood dream home. West Ridge Farm, the former McLarty farm in Parkwood Knolls is a newly developed area and the only remaining open land in any Edina neighborhood. It covers 90 acres of bluffs and meadows providing panoramic, sun-drenched views of the southwest metro.
As part of a first-ring suburb, this Edina neighborhood is conveniently located near downtown Minneapolis. Parkwood Knolls is bordered by Vernon Avenue on the south and Mirror Lake on the east. As the westernmost Edina neighborhood, Parkwood Knolls shares a border with Hopkins, giving residents easy access to the best of both cities.
In fact, Parkwood Knolls is served by Hopkins Public Schools as well as Edina Public Schools, which is widely known for demanding excellence from its students. Renowned Edina High School consistently earns a spot in Newsweek magazine’s list of the country’s top 100 high schools. Ask your REALTOR® about schools accessible from Parkwood Knolls homes for sale.
