Deephaven Home Blends Modern Ruggedness and Victorian Elegance

If you love homes that embrace vintage style in a modern context, this $1.5 million five-bedroom, five-bathroom Deephaven home will appeal. Situated on a private nature preserve just minutes from Lake Minnetonka and downtown Excelsior, this home is built by Aspect Design Build and designed in collaboration with design firm Vintage Elements. Aspect’s Shaun Winkler and Tom Preissing describe the home as “rugged vintage” with one-of-a-kind features throughout.

In the two-story entry, for example, a custom-made chandelier—created with reclaimed milk glass pendants—is a dazzling focal point both inside and out. The aged-looking parquet flooring is reminiscent of an opulent turn-of-the-century estate, while the painted antique mantel in the great room looks like it’s always been there.

On the lower level, the piéce de résistance is the tavern, complete with an antique bar and conditioned wine and bourbon cellar in a tasting room with vintage copper doors. Upstairs you’ll find three bedrooms, a flex space with built in benches, and the master suite, where Victorian elegance is evident in the carved custom cabinetry and marble countertops.

This stunning home brings a rugged modern style to the Victorian age for the perfect balance of past and present.
