Beautiful contemporary home boasts magnificent views over Cooks Bay

contemporary-exterior

Alexander Design Group designed this beautiful contemporary home to capture the lake views, located on the shores of Cooks Bay, in Mound, Minnesota. Cooks Bay is one of many lakes and bays that make up Lake Minnetonka. Literally, one complete side of this dwelling is almost nothing but windows! A bright and open floor plan, a unique staircase, and multiple stone fireplaces are highlights of this incredibly stunning design.
