2014 Home Highlights: Denali Custom Homes, Inc.

As an award-winning luxury home builder, David Bieker of Denali Custom Homes, Inc. knows how to build homes to best fit into their environments, whether that environment is a sprawling expanse of land, a lakefront property, or—in this case—a narrow corner lot backing up to an association-maintained green space in the Portico neighborhood of Wayzata.

With three small children, the homeowners were drawn to the family-friendly neighborhood and the large open park space behind the home, serving as the neighborhood playground. Their dream home is everything they wanted: beautiful custom details, free-flowing indoor spaces, and a highly functional—and nontraditional—layout, making the most of the useable space.

Influenced by East Coast design, features include all white enameled woodwork, a quiet office off the foyer (serving as a shared working space for both homeowners), 15-foot ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the great room, a gourmet kitchen with a center island and high-end appliances, a pass-through butler’s pantry to the formal dining area, and a generous deck off the kitchen.

At one end of the upstairs hall, there’s a laundry room and opulent master suite with an oversized shower and soaking tub; the other wing is reserved for the kids’ bedrooms and private bathrooms.

The lower level was designed for entertainment, with a built-in bar, pool table, partial stone wall serving as a backdrop for the family’s large flat-screen TV, exercise room, guest room with bath, and secret “mouse hole” crawl space beneath the stairs, a cozy place for the kids to play on cold or rainy days.
