One might assume a homeowner who incorporates a duck hunting cleaning station in his garage would prefer a rustic style lodge over a contemporary home, but that would be entirely too stereotypical—and this home is all about shattering stereotypes.
First off, it doesn’t look like a “typical” suburban home from the outside, with its contrasting textures, linear architecture, stacked paneling system, porcelain tile entry, and flat rubber roof with exaggerated overhanging fascia. It is an ultra modern home—built by Mueller Homes, LLC, and designed by Jaque Bethke and Lindsay Knott of PURE Design Environments—and brings a cool downtown vibe to a 2.5-acre lot in Inver Grove Heights.
Inside the home, the family’s playful personalities are reflected in artfully modern touches: in the floating cabinetry of the kitchen, office, and mudroom, in the unique artwork displayed throughout the space, and in the stunning textured wood stair tower. The contemporary design is hip yet classic, warm and inviting.
On the main level, the superbly crafted nontraditional kitchen features a large and open layout conducive to uninterrupted interaction and flexible entertaining, whether the group is gathered in the kitchen, in the bright and spacious great room, or around the fireplace in the morning room.
On the upper level, two kids’ bedrooms, connected with a Jack-and-Jill bath, are closed off from the main hallway with a pocket barn door. Down the hall is a magnificent master suite with a beautiful intricate ceiling design of intersecting shapes and soffit details, like no other ceiling you’ve seen before. It’s just one of many unique features in a home that makes a statement and leaves a lasting impression.
