Cottage-Inspired Lake House-Charlie Co Design-01-1 Kindesign

This breathtaking cottage-inspired lakeside home was designed by architectural studio Charlie & Co. Design, located on Lake Minnetonka, in Tonka Bay, Minnesota. Spread out over three levels, this inviting retreat was designed for family living and entertaining both indoors and out. Upon entrance into this 5,550 square foot home, you will find that it radiates with warmth and openness, offering exquisite amenities throughout.

Every detail was thought of in the design of this home, including a built-in generator, heated garage, paver driveway and lush landscaping. A spacious outdoor deck offers a comfortable and tranquil respite to enjoy legendary sunsets.

Where do I start. The pops of color, the intimate places to go read a book, the big window on the stairs for a feeling of openness , the storage, the bench seats to take off shoes or flip flops, the many windows with so many details , the fireplace to cozy up rooms, its like a English muffin with all the nooks and crannies. It is delicious. My husband is a general contractor and our 1800’s den is gutted and will soon be renovated. Thank you for all the wonderful ideas.
