For more than 50 years Kootenia has established its reputation as a highly credible homebuilder in the Twin Cities, known for its superior design, attention to detail, and quality craftsmanship. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Kootenia is also selective when choosing locations to build Kootenia homes. Currently, we are one of a handful of approved builders in two developments – the Rapp Farm neighborhood in North Oaks, Minnesota, as well as the Saddle Club neighborhood in Lino Lakes, Minnesota. Let’s look at some of the benefits to building in both of these locations.

Rapp Farm, North Oaks – (8 Lots For Sale)

One of the major benefits to building in this development is the natural setting. The North Oaks Company’s goal is to preserve natural topography without disturbing woodlands and wetlands whenever possible. In fact, over 600 acres of land have been set aside in the Rapp Farm neighborhood alone, never to be developed. Within North Oaks are another 500 acres of open space available for residents to enjoy. This idea of land preservation creates a beautiful ambience throughout the suburb of North Oaks. Think lush, wooded, winding roads, private cul-de-sacs, limited street lights, wildlife, natural surroundings, green spaces, parks, recreation areas, and miles of trails. Homesites throughout North Oaks are centered around conservation areas. In fact, renowned landscape planner Randall Arendt designed development spaces specifically around the land that would be preserved, with homesites being placed in areas that offer the best views while complimenting the surrounding natural environment. The 8 lots that remain in Rapp Farm’s final phase all back up to either woods, conservation land, open space, ponds, or a combination of these elements. Beyond the recreational facilities, lakes, parks, playgrounds and trails, Rapp Farm residents also exclusively have access to a community clubhouse and pool. The North Oaks Home Owners Association is responsible for maintenance of all recreational programs, facilities, and roads, which is of great convenience to its citizens. The Rapp Farm neighborhood is also part of the Mounds View School District, one of the premier school districts in the state. Beyond all of these attributes, North Oaks is in close proximity to everyday amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants, major highways like 35E and 35W, downtown Minneapolis, St. Paul and MSP Airport. Packages for homes in Rapp Farm begin at $650,000.

Saddle Club, Lino Lakes (Phase 4 Opens Fall 2019)

The Saddle Club neighborhood only has 7 lots left for sale, however, the fourth and final phase of this development is coming this fall, which will add 8 additional lots to this gorgeous development. That means in total, 15 homesites remain in Saddle Club, Lino Lakes. With packages starting at $450,000, it may be the perfect place for you and your family. The benefits of building in Saddle Club are similar to that of Rapp Farm in that you are immersed in nature. Homesites are surrounded by mature trees, ponds, wetlands, conservation areas, and the Lino Lakes Trail & Parks System. It’s hard to believe because of the beautiful natural surroundings but Saddle Club is also in close proximity to shopping, dining, major highways 35E & 35W, downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. Saddle Club is part of the Centennial School District, another highly reputable district in the state of Minnesota.
