Luxury Homes in Woodbury, Lake Elmo & Afton
Beginning in the 1970s and continuing through today, the Twin Cities metro area has expanded rapidly, with real estate buyers seeking their homes in communities in a widening area around Minneapolis and St. Paul. The eastern metro area has seen a dramatic expansion, especially in communities along the St. Croix River east of St. Paul. Starting in Woodbury, but including a wide range of communities from Stillwater to the north and Afton to the south, upscale homes make up a good proportion of the homes built during that expansion.

Recent construction of beautiful, spacious homes, often on large building sites or acreage, has led to a wide variety of home designs and styles available throughout this part of the Twin Cities. Builders have competed to create homes and developments in this area for some time, and the results are dramatic. The easy commutes on I-94 and the I-494 and I-694 loop take residents throughout the Twin Cities from comfortable, quiet homes with a distinctly different feel than in crowded suburbs elsewhere.
As members of Northstar MLS MN members, several of our experienced, creative Realtors and agents specialize in this part of the metro area, and have a deep understanding of market conditions and listings in these northeastern communities. Among the cities and townships in the area, exciting opportunities for home buyers can be found in:
- Woodbury – Located south of I-94 and west of the St. Croix River, Woodbury is the commercial center of the east metro, with extensive shopping districts along I-94, built to serve the growing region. Spacious, recently built homes, located on large lots or small acreage are in good supply for home buyers here, in the $500-800,000 price range, based on the current Minnesota MLS listing data. A wide range of designs and excellent amenities are the hallmarks of these homes listed by Northstar MLS of MN.
- Afton – Just east of Woodbury is the more rural Afton area. MLS home listings in Afton range from riverview homes priced into the low 7 figures to homes on acreage and hobby farms, priced in the high six-figures. Most are recently built and loaded with the amenities sought after by home buyers.
- Lake Elmo & Lakeland – North of I-94, and east of the St. Paul suburb of Oakdale, this part of the eastern metro also features a more rural feel. With prices ranging between $500,000 to around $1 million, MLS listed homes in carefully planned developments dominate the high-end market. Large building sites and homes on several acres are typical, with most homes constructed in the 1990s through the 2000s. A few multiple listings on the shores of Lake Elmo are also usually available.
- Stillwater Area – Located on and near the St. Croix River, upscale home listings by Northstar MLS in this area range from historic homes in one of Minnesota’s oldest cities through homes built in the 2000s. A few river view homes generally appear in MN MLS property listings, along with some lakeshore homes on the small lakes in the area. Prices generally range from $500,000 to just over $1 million. Highway 36 is the main route into the metro area for Stillwater area residents.
