UPDATE: Breathtaking Views at $1.5 Million Studio in Rochester But You Can’t Live In It…Yet
UPDATE as of March 22nd, 2022: The home that has been sitting unfinished in SW Rochester, Minnesota went on the market for $1.5 million. Since the home was listed, I received several phone calls, e-mails and messages regarding this home and rumors associated with it. Below is the latest update regarding the home at 2630 Wild Rose Ln SW in Rochester, Minnesota.
One of Rochester, Minnesota's most expensive studios went on the market last week for $1,500,000. Well, you probably won't' want to live in it right away but if you buy this piece of real estate in Southeast Minnesota, you'll have one of the most amazing views of the Med City!
Rochester, Minnesota's Most Expensive Studio for $1,500,000
I've had my eye on the property at 2630 Wild Rose Ln SW for quite some time for a few reasons:
- #1 - I love this area of town. I can't afford it but I love it. All of the houses in this subdivision and area are just massive and there are quite a few that have that modern look to them which is one of my favorite styles.
- #2 - you can see this place from so many different spots. It is so high up that it just towers over everything else and has an amazing view. The cool thing though is that when you drive in the neighborhood, it is hidden pretty well.
- #3 - this house has the potential to be a house with that modern look that I love. It's going to cost some serious cash to make that happen since the house is missing quite a bit right now but someone could make this place absolutely amazing.
Although the house doesn't have any real bedrooms at the moment, the listing does state that it has a 6 car garage.
The current structure was built in 2017 and features 15,000 square feet and the entire property is 4.5 acres.
Unfortunately, the property was pulled off the market shortly after it was listed. (Learn why below). When it was listed though, the agent, Robin Gwaltney, stated on Realtor.com, that the house is not finished but that could be to your advantage because if you've got the cash, you can build your dream home and pick out everything so it is exactly how you want it to look and feel.
Although the photos that have been taken don't show it, there are tons of wildlife in this area too. If you are wanting a place with lots of deer, I can guarantee that you will see them on this property. I know because when I drove by this place recently, there were deer standing in the front yard.
Here are a few more photos that show you the amazing views that this home offers.
Let's chat about the rumors circulating about the Wild Rose property in SW Rochester, Minnesota
When I wrote the story, I had no idea I would get so many phone calls and e-mails telling me all sorts of reasons why this home should be torn down, why it is not going to be sold, why it was not finished, and personal details about the family that had no reason to be told to me. The story was about a home for sale - not a family. I was a REALTOR for many years in Rochester and knew that the first step to getting answers was the agent, so I reached out to Robin Gwaltney and her team for answers. I was told, "I have no comment".
One of my co-workers, Andy Brownell with News Talk 1340 KROC-AM and 96.9 FM (krocnews.com) spoke with the agent that same day though and had a conversation with her about this home. If you are curious about the rumors, what is real and what isn't, you can read the truth about the property here or listen to the podcast below.

Just a bit to the North is another million-dollar home for sale in Rochester that is picture-perfect. Unfortunately, an offer is pending so my dream of living here is not happening either but I still love looking through the photos and imagining I'm sitting on the couch by the fireplace with a cup of coffee in the mornings. Feel free to do the same!
