“It became a huge gathering place, not only for our kids but for all their friends,” Ray said. “If people were looking for their kids, they’d call our house. They were usually there.”

Now the kids are grown, the big house is quiet, and the Petersons are ready for a smaller home — although they hope to remain in St. Anthony Park. “We’d like to stay,” Ray said.

 

Jacqueline Day of Edina Realty has the listing, 763-522-9000.
