Top Neighborhoods in Minneapolis to Begin a Cottage or Bungalow Search

Minneapolis is a city of neighborhoods, and as anyone who already lives here knows, each has something unique and defining about it, which is why it’s important to really read up on a particular location before making a decision, or perhaps even make a visit to the area if you’re unfamiliar what it already has to offer.

Depending on your needs and wants as a home buyer, some Minneapolis neighborhoods are better than others for certain property-types, price ranges, and various other characteristics. And if you’re someone who’s specifically looking for a quaint cottage or bungalow in town, here’s a short list of places to begin your search:

Bryan Mawr 

Vintage homes and the Bryn Mawr neighborhood in Minneapolis go hand-in-hand, which is why it tops our list for classic bungalows and cottages built back in the ‘30s and ‘40s. Easily one of the most highly sought-after neighborhoods in town, homes for sale in Bryn Mawr also won’t break the bank, further boosting its appeal and desirability.
