This Midwest cottage style home designed by Peterssen/Keller Architecture in collaboration with Martha O’Hara Interiors is located in the charming Linden Hills neighborhood, of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Encompassing 5,518 square feet of living space, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom contemporary urban cottage easily accommodates a family’s active lifestyle. 

The vision for this dream home was to create a modern, yet timeless urban cottage that blurs the lines between indoors and out. Highlights include expansive rooms, get-away spaces for parents and kids, three fireplaces and a swimming pool. Designed to fit within the context of the neighborhood, this spacious two-story house blends traditional, gable-roofed cottage vernacular with exhilarating modern contrasts in texture and color.

What We Love: This stunning Midwest cottage was designed to accommodate a family’s active lifestyle and their love of outdoor living. Two gabled pavilions offer living spaces for kids and adults to enjoy their privacy while the core of the home allows for quality family time. Traditional cottage vernacular blends with an open modern aesthetic, creating a stunning overall result.

Love the design and the decorating however I need to see floor plans to see how the space is laid out…… each room looks great but how does the space interact throughout the house.
