With natural exterior stone detailing, cottage-style windows and doors, and picturesque rooflines pierced by prominent gables, this gorgeous home in Wayzata’s Locust Hills neighborhood looks like it could’ve been plucked right from the English countryside.
The use of wood and stone add country charm to the interior, evident in the exposed handcrafted timber trusses, wide plank hardwood flooring, distressed white kitchen cabinetry, ample built-ins, and massive double-sided stone fireplace in the two story great room; while modern amenities can be seen in the beautiful two-toned kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, large granite center island, and Cambria countertops.
Fourth-generation home builder, Sven Gustafson, owner of Stonewood, LLC—along with Tom Flint—worked closely with the couple to customize their four-bedroom, four bathroom 5,200-square-foot space: the homeowners’ personalities and interests shine through in the separate informal dining room (with distinctively bold red walls), expansive laundry/sewing room (complete with a fabric closet), built-in dog kennel, and second story music room/office, with a sliding barn door for added privacy.
Other special features include an elevator, a Juliet balcony overlooking the main floor, and a sunny and bright east facing master suite with enameled woodwork, luxurious fireplace, walk-in closet, and spacious master bath. The homeowners can polish their golf skills (and play, practice and compete on virtual championship courses) with a golf simulator on the lower level, near the bar.
The space is filled with atmosphere, personality, and charm, perfect for entertaining friends and family or curling up with a cup of tea.
