Charming tudor style lake house with timeless details on Lake Minnetonka

tudor-style-home-exterior

This breathtaking Tudor style lake house was designed by Murphy & Co., located on a peninsula between Echo Bay and Lafayette Bay on Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota. The owners of this property asked to remove their existing lake house and build a brand new dwelling that would capture the multiple views offered by this unique site.

The architects devised a layout that would not only enhance the view but also work within the tight setback and impervious surface requirements. The finished result is a timeless aesthetic that is based on the English half-timber style, with virtually every room capturing the lake views.

This house reminds me of a storybook B & B…and that is a sincere compliment. Beautiful use of a site. An exquisitely constructed home in a lovely setting.
But…(there isn’t always a but).. the sinks in the master bath make me think of a bathroom in an orphanage…during a depression…and in the 1800s…yikes! I can’t get them out of my mind!
