Summerhill is housing for those 55 and over who want to continue living securely in
a family style home but without the responsibilities of maintaining a typical house.
Summerhill offers not only the same features as a house, but also the freedom,
security, sociability , and sense of community of cooperative condo living. The building
is conveniently located at 7610 Smetana Lane in Eden Prairie, a southwest suburb of
Minneapolis, in a park-like setting with convenient access to Highways 494, 212, 169,
and to Eden Prairie Mall, restaurants and shops.
Eden Prairie was named by Money Magazine in 2010 and 2016 as one of the "Best small city in which to
live in the United States".
The most extraordinary features of Summerhill are the individual units. They are larger
than seen in most condo-type buildings, with dimensions from 1800 sq. ft. to over 2100
sq. ft. with 9 foot ceilings in all rooms, and large high windows, each unit is always bright and
Each unit is designed with a large kitchen, complete with all appliances, a generous
living room, a dining room, one bedroom and den, or two bedrooms and den, two baths
(one with both a tub and shower), a laundry room, walk-in closets, a generous
storage room, and a balcony. The big plus is that both the laundry room and the
generous storage room are uniquely located in the individual unit, unlike most other
condos, where they are located down the hall or in some remote location.
Because of the size of the units, each one is equipped with two-zone heating and air
Among the many reasons seniors are leaving their individual homes is repair and
maintenance. At Summerhill all facilities are maintained for you. The monthly fee
includes an amount set aside in a reserve fund to repair and/or replace all appliances,
fixtures, floor coverings, etc.
