A unique new community is coming to Golden Valley.  The Liberty, with 187 apartments and 55 freestanding townhomes, will be the ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life while still poised conveniently near it.  It is neighborhood living redefined.Residents of The Liberty’s townhomes will enjoy a very singular feature: no electric bills! All townhomes are equipped with solar energy panels made by TruNorth Solar, which will provide enough sun energy that management is guaranteeing no electric bills for the first lease term of all townhome rentals.  The clubhouse and common areas in the apartment building will also run off of solar energy as part of The Liberty’s goal to reduce their carbon footprint.

The Liberty will occupy a quiet corner of Golden Valley on Winnetka Ave and Medicine Lake Rd.   The community will be near Highways 100, 169, and 55, but perfectly distanced from these busy main roads so they don’t interfere with residents’ solitude.  The Liberty will stand fewer than 20 minutes from downtown Minneapolis by car, and with one of the Twin Cities’ wonderful bike paths leading directly to it, cyclist commuters can ride to work as often as they wish.  

The Liberty will be only a short walk from Medicine Lake.  With pike, bass, walleye, and more, this scenic body of water boasts great fishing as well as picnic areas, a playground, a swimming beach, and a lovely township on a peninsula for pleasant evening walks.  Even nearer are several ponds, the perfect things to walk around with the dog or just in thought.

The Liberty’s amenities provide its guests with even more recreation indoors.  The clubhouse will have a community space complete with everything residents will need to host friendly gatherings, including a kitchen.  The large fitness center will be fully equipped with treadmills, elliptical and rowing machines, free weights, and weight machines for everyone to stay fit year round.  The Liberty Lounge will have table shuffleboard, television, a billiards table, a business center, and classic arcade game cabinets for colorful tests of skill.  Even the dog isn’t left out!  Take your best friend for a run around the fenced dog park, and then indulge him with a spa day courtesy of the dog wash in the building.  And when the sun is shining, residents can go for a dip in the pool and then dine on food fresh from the grill on the outdoor patio.

The Liberty’s accommodations will be split among two types of home: townhomes and apartments.  The townhomes are currently available to rent, and come in one, two, and three bedroom sizes.  At 1,540 square feet, the two and three bedroom two level townhomes are positively spacious.  At 850 square feet for single level, single bedroom townhomes, and 1,215 square feet for the single level, two bedroom townhomes, The Liberty offers the right amount of space for all of their residents’ needs.  All townhomes come with attached garages, because nothing is better to have during a Minnesota winter.

Apartment residents will enjoy quite a few perks as well.  Every one of the 187 apartments comes with a private patio or balcony, perfect to enjoy The Liberty’s peaceful surroundings from.  Like the townhomes, each apartment has its own washer and dryer, granite kitchen countertop, choice of white or espresso colored cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances.  Floor to ceiling length windows will bathe every apartment with natural light, generous closets will provide ample storage space, and woodlike flooring will bring a touch of class to every home in the community.  Two levels of heated underground parking will keep guests’ cars very happy too.


The Liberty’s townhomes are available for rent right now, and their friendly management welcomes you to come and see your next home.  The apartments will be ready for move-in in January, although you can see what they will be very much like should you tour a townhome.  If you are looking for luxury, convenience, and quietude from your next home, it’s all in Golden Valley.  Go and see why The Liberty is neighborhood living redefined today!
