5917 Fairfax Avenue, Edina, MN 55424
In recent years, there’s been a shift in the “build big” mentality of luxury homebuyers. Today’s savvy consumers realize they don’t have to live in a McMansion—they can creatively maximize square footage through an open-concept plan like the one used in this five-bedroom, five-bathroom Edina home, for sale by TJB Homes. The open space and natural light give this 4,700-square-foot home an expansive feel, while exquisite architectural details and upscale finishes give it a sense of luxury. The home, located in Edina, also boasts TJB’s trademark energy-efficient features, including innovative cold-climate building techniques.
The main level gourmet kitchen, with Thermador appliances, is open to the walk-in pantry and adjoining mudroom, offering convenient access to gathering areas. The den/office features statement-making double-hung interior doors; while a wall of windows in the cozy hearth room adds warmth to the family space.
The upstairs layout includes a loft/homework/lounge area, three kids’ rooms with private window benches, and a Jack-and-Jill bath. The owner’s retreat features a private alcove and luxurious spa-like bath with a generous soaking tub, rain shower, and vaulted ceiling. The master suite leads to a convenient second-floor laundry area.
The finished lower level is home to a rec room outfitted in dark woodwork and stone, a large wine cellar featuring knotty pine and hickory, a spacious guest room, and a sports-themed bar (complete with a built-in draft beer dispenser).
The “less is more” contemporary design emphasizes line and form—two essentials of good design. The reputation of TJB Homes speaks for itself—they’ve been in business since 1980 and have been featured on two episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
