Redstone Builders a Premier Builder in Wildflower of Lake Elmo Development


Local builders Bob Appert and Dan Larson of Redstone Builders are teaming up with award winning developer, Bob Engstrom, to bring you Wildflower, the brand new neighborhood in Lake Elmo.  Showcasing custom homes with small town style and a native habitat that is a nurturing environment for bees, butterflies and other pollinators, Wildflower boasts of 60 acres of development land situated on a natural preserve that includes three miles of walking and hiking trails. 

Preserving the land’s rolling hills and wetlands, the master plan for Wildflower includes 145 lots that offer home buyers four options when choosing their new homes.  These options include custom built homes overlooking the Prairie Conservancy; detached, maintenance-free Garden Villa homes with access to a private park; large lots that are perfectly suited for custom homes; and the coveted Bluff lots that will lend themselves to upper-bracket, architecturally designed homes. 

Set upon the ideals of a historic farming community, Wildflower of Lake Elmo is a beautiful combination of native Minnesota habitat and carefully crafted homes.  Dedicated to preserving the environment it’s built upon, 50% of the land will be left open for conservation purposes, continuing the open spaces mentality that Bob Engstrom has become well known for.

Some of the other benefits of Wildflower of Lake Elmo include the following:

  • Close and Convenient – The community is close to downtown Lake Elmo and has easy access to the St. Croix Valley as well as highways to many metro destinations. 
  • Quality Schools – Within two blocks of the community is Stillwater High School, Oakland Jr. High, and Lake Elmo Elementary.
  • Wildlife Sanctuary – Filled by a habitat friendly to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, the 60-acre Wildflower Association-owned nature preserve surrounds the home-sites.
  • Home Design Options – Local builders offer a range of custom homes situated on large lots down to detached maintenance-free homes.

Developer Robert Engstrom is dedicated to a tradition of excellence and concentrates on environmentally friendly conservation communities.  He has won multiple awards including the Urban Land Institute Award of Excellence for his three-block restoration and infill development in the historic District of St. Paul as well as Best Collaboration in Reuse of a Property and Champion of Open Space.
