Although these Lake Minnetonka homeowners were empty nesters, they wanted to make sure their forever home would always be a place for their children to feel at home, too—making sure each of the house’s four bedrooms have its own bathroom space and large closet. That sentiment of family stretched to the rest of the house, with easy community spaces such as a pub room—which is connected to the outdoor patio via a retractable-screened porch—bunkhouse, and lower-level entertainment area.
The style veers classic contemporary rather than beachy bohemian. Due to the roof line’s peaks, the upstairs bedrooms enjoy classic A-frame ceilings, allowing even more surface area to take in the views, and the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room are made more traditional with square-paned transom windows above. While the home’s airy interiors are largely white, they are warmed up by wooden ceiling beams and floors. Multiple fireplaces in brick and sand-colored stone surrounds also keep the atmosphere feeling cozy in the winter months.
Stonewood, LLC, made certain that the home met its owners’ requirements for entertaining and hosting, but they didn’t neglect the need for relaxing spaces. Areas such as the gathering room or the screened porch double as spots for entertaining or for peaceful nights looking at the lake. Plus, if people want to de-stress with a little exercise, there’s always the home’s fitness room, and the private lake access from the dock is always an option.
Between Stonewood, LLC, and interior design firm Studio M, this waterfront home provides the perfect place to stay, whether it’s the two homeowners or a full house with friends and family.
