There is certain nostalgia that accompanies raising a family on the water, and the empty nesters who built this northern Minnesota lakeside escape aimed to re-create those summertime memories for their four grown children and their families. Near the upper-level family room, built-in bar area, and patio, this third-floor rooftop deck overlooks the lake and lends warmth when the chilly lake breeze hits the shoreline after dark. Easy to stack and lightweight Crate & Barrel furniture offers seating to watch the sun set through the trees, while a Barbara Jean Collection fireplace with a subway-style brick veneer surround promises a cozy, comfortable ambiance while entertaining. Here, rich materials, custom elements, and immaculate attention to detail come to life on the lake.
