Classic lakeside home in Minnesota features modern farmhouse elements

beach-style-exterior

This classic lakeside home is the work of design-build studio Kroiss Development in collaboration with Lenox House Design, located in Excelsior, Minnesota. The exterior presents an inviting palette, consisting of Hardie Siding in Artic White, a black shingled roof and black Marvin Windows complimented by a black front door. The two-story interior encompasses 2,877 square feet of living space (not including a large finished basement), with four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

This home was designed for a couple of empty nesters, with grown children that are currently attending college. They wanted to have a home that they could walk right out onto the lake, to celebrate their love of lake living. The design offers an open floor plan that makes entertaining a breeze. There is a fluid connection between indoors and out, further enhancing their entertaining lifestyle.

Great looking home. Can you provide a sketch of the main floor of the home so we can see how it flows with respect to the front of the home and the garage if any. Thanks.

This home is absolutely beautiful. I love the texture changes on the exterior in white with the contrast framing in black. The interior is just awesome. Very noteworthy renovation.
