For the clients, who own homes in various parts of the country, their Lake Minnetonka getaway was to be an amalgam of traditional style, breathtaking décor, and spacious enough to accommodate their interests. Of the utmost importance, it is a place to unwind and relax. Beautiful millwork accentuate the entryway; near floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the lake. Details and a comfortable flow are evident throughout, and the mindfulness of the home’s overall space is prominent.

A scullery is cleverly tucked behind the central area of the kitchen, accessible via an almost undetectable double-swing door. The living room is large enough for the baby grand piano, but cozy and comfortable. Adjacent to the formal living room is a less formal gathering area with more relaxed seating, a fireplace, and TV. The owners’ suite is replete with a bathroom comprising a soaker tub, beautiful custom cabinetry, striking tile, and more lake views. A small wet bar adjoins the bedroom. Large windows and a balcony look onto the lake.
