Lake of the Isles Craftsman
This craftsman style home designed by Peterssen / Keller Architecture is nestled on a historic cobblestone road on Lake of the Isles Parkway. It’s unique site overlooks the scenic parkway with views of Lake Calhoun, Lake of the Isles, and the Minneapolis skyline. This home will comfortably address the needs of a modern family, while focusing on classic detailing that respectfully blends with the surrounding historic neighborhood.
This home sits on a small hill at the end of a private, cobblestone street. It is designed to take advantage of the surrounding views. The goal of the design is to have a lake view from every room. It sits along-side the Greenway Corridor, and is surrounded by large, hardwood trees. There are many local amenities, including a dog-park, beaches, trails, lakes, restaurants, and shopping.
This two-story family home is made for entertaining. It has an open floor plan. The kitchen is made to cook in, boasting a large working chef’s kitchen, with top of the line appliances, a gracious center island, and enameled wood cabinetry. The south-facing great room is surrounded by three walls of windows, looking out onto the terrace, front porch, and Lake of the Isles. The dining room is also south-facing with large, glass french-doors which open onto a stone terrace. The second level of the home is a family space. The master bedroom overlooks Lake of the Isles and has views of the Minneapolis city skyline.
The exterior and interior of the house is well-suited for the neighborhood, honoring the time-period of the area. It has the appeal of an older-style home, but the quality of new materials and craftsmanship.
