Shingle colonial style lake house with breathtaking details in Minnesota

shingle-colonial-style-lake-house-exterior

This shingle colonial style lake house was designed by Murphy & Co. Design perched high atop a treelined bluff on Turtle Lake, Minnesota. The design of this home was inspired by the relaxed aesthetic of shingled colonials seen in Nantucket. The “L” shaped plan includes a pediment roofed portico, a salvaged cupola from a local college building, and miles of weathered shingles with blue shutters.

An English-styled Orangerie adorns the side of this residence, while the attic in the main gable – accessed via a ship’s ladder – encompasses a cozy studio with incredible lake views.

What We Love: This inviting shingle colonial style home features a gorgeous exterior facade that opens into an equally exquisite interior. Living spaces are open and airy with beautiful details throughout. We are especially loving the classic details in the kitchen with its black and white palette and the lovely Orangerie that can be enjoyed throughout the seasons. A covered outdoor patio with lakeside views is an idyllic spot to relax with family and perfect for entertaining.

Tell Us: What do you think of the overall aesthetics of this dwelling? Is there anything you would change in the design if this was your home? Let us know in the Comments!
