Apple Ridge subdivision of southwest Rochester was platted in 1985. It consists of all residential homes nestled on six cul-de-sacs and two through streets. Unless you live in this little pocket of heaven you're never likely to stumble across this subdivision which makes it all the more sought after. 


Apple Ridge is set in softly rolling hills. You'll find homes tucked into the hillside with tuck-under garages as well as split-level, ranch and two story homes. Most yards have wonderfully mature trees as does the main boulevard. I believe some of the homes have a joint mailbox system where everyone shares a large common mailbox with individual compartments for each address rather than mailboxes on each house.

Homes of Apple Ridge Subdivision - Rochester MN

Most homes were built between 1985 and 2000. You will find a very nice combination of ranch, two story and split-level homes. The softly rolling hills causes some homes to be built into hillsides with tuck-under garages. Lot sizes are around .2 to .7 acres with the larger lots at the end of most cul-de-sacs. Homes are connected to city sewer and water. Home sales from 2013-2016 show 23 homes were sold and they ranged in price from $169,900 for a 2500 sq. ft, 3 bedroom, 2 bath home built in 1990 to $288,00 for a 3200 sq. ft, 4 bedroom, 4 bath, 4 car garage two story at the end of a cul-de-sac.


At this time (12/2016), the Apple Ridge Subdivision is in the Ben Franklin Elementary School, Willow Creek Middle School and Mayo High School boundary area.


Apple Ridge is very conveniently located to shopping, dining and entertainment. Just five blocks west of South Broadway on 20th St NW, you have easy access to the local Kwik Trip for gas an common grocery items. You're not far from a couple of small restaurants such as John Hardy's, Tinn's and Ichi Tokyo. Walmart South and Menard's South are just a mile or so away with Apache Mall about 2.5 miles. Access to downtown is a breeze, just straight down Broadway and will likely take 10 minutes on most days, 15-20 during rush hour.
