Luxury Home Tour – 2008
Lower Lake, Lake Minnetonka
True to the style Stonewood is known for, this cottage like home was designed to capitalize on the picturesque view of Lake Minnetonka while creating a floor plan that speaks to the importance of comfort, modern technology, and practicality. Warmth and continuity were acheived by the soft paint tones and millwork chosen throughout the home, including rich walnut floors contrasted by white enameled crown molding accenting the expansive picture windows through out all 3 floors, white enameled custom-designed shaker style cabinetry which practically frames the highly functional kitchen and adjoining pantry. Other accents include the alder stained furniture like island breaking up the kitchen from the dining area, a stainedhandcarved limestone fireplace centering the great room, and the beadboard ceiling and wanescoting with a craftsman style fireplace simply accenting this cozy sunroom.
The master bedroom and bathroom suggest comfort and tranquility. The vgrooove vaulted ceiling and wanescoting perfectly characterize this spacious suite fully equipped with simple white enameled paneled and windowed custom design cabinetry offering both privacy and femininity. Maximizing the love of lake life and nature, the 3 season porch off the greatroom features a vaulted stained beadboard cedar ceiling complimented by a raised hearth fireplace, cedar flooring and ironwood decking with iron ballisters.
