THE OWNERS OF THIS ELEGANT Eden Prairie estate have three active children who needed practice areas for their myriad activities. Michael Paul Design + Build integrated several sporty spaces into the design while capturing the most advantageous aspects of this gorgeous lot, situated high above the Minnesota River.
The home is outfitted with a sport court, rock climbing wall, indoor faux-ice hockey rink, and outdoor pool, plus individual spaces for each child and low-maintenance wood flooring to handle the heavy foot traffic.
Talley Jane Interiors worked with the Michael Paul Design + Build team tocreate seamless transitions between the clean lines and rustic elements. A metal floating staircase features rustic treads and an all-metal railing. White oak flooring strikes a tone of casual elegance, as does a nice mix of woods throughout the home, bright enamel woodwork, and colored cabinets. A large lower-level entertaining bar opens up to the backyard pool.
Don’t miss the private master suite, which proves why CEO/owner Michael Laumann calls the property “one of the best lots in the southwest metro.” The view from the master deck, overlooking the river valley, is nothing short of astonishing.
