New Nautical Cottage


Minnetrista, Minnesota

This stunning new home sits on prime lakeshore and offers amenities at every turn. With six bedrooms, five full baths and two half-baths, the home sets up well to entertain guests in its 8,600 square feet. Visitors are greeted with views of the lake almost everywhere in the home—an important design aspect that also ensures that ample natural light cascades throughout. The kitchen is outfitted with a huge, custom, commercial-grade island made in California. An elevator hides in the mud room near the service entry and connects all three levels. The exceptional ‘smoking room’ is clad all in wood and features a stone fireplace and 4-panel, Marvin bi-fold door leading to a Phantom Screen porch. The master suite is a true retreat overlooking the lake below and features a barrel-vaulted ceiling and ample shiplap, staying true to the nautical theme.
