This home was on the 2014 Artisan Home Tour and is located on the rolling landscape in Cedar Bluff neighborhood of historic Afton, Minnesota, which hugs the banks of the St. Croix River.
The homeowners chose this location, because of its beautiful views of the prairies and bluffs along the river. The rural, quiet community was a perfect fit to raise their four children. They wanted a large home built for entertaining their family and friends.
The 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom home is built for entertaining. The personality of the home comes to life in its ability to seamlessly combine indoor and outdoor living spaces. The kitchen features a large dining island. There is an entertaining bar off of the kitchen, which leads to 4-season porch and lanai (an open-air, covered porch). The entertaining area overlooks a landscape patio and pool.
Home features include:
- Geo-thermal heating for the house. Geo-thermal heat is also used to heat the pool
- A cedar sauna in the master bath
- Extensive outdoor living spaces
