Inside a breathtaking Cape Dutch inspired home tour in Minnesota

cape-dutch-style-home-exterior

This Cape Dutch-influenced home was designed by Ron Brenner Architects in collaboration with Hage Homes, nestled on two acres of a gently sloping hillside in Orono, Minnesota. With family roots in South Africa, the homeowners were attracted to the Dutch Architectural style, which is prevalent in the Western Cape.

It is a style distinguished by simple forms, clean lines, white-washed walls, and distinctive raised gable end parapet walls. At the front of this dwelling, the landscaped courtyard is framed by a stucco wall and features stone pavers in addition to a modern channel water feature.

What We Love: This Cape Dutch-influenced home features a gorgeous exterior facade nestled into peaceful surroundings. Inside, radiant living spaces have large windows that draw nature inside to create a relaxed living environment. We are loving the exquisite staircase in the front entryway and the black and white palette with pops of brass for a sophisticated, clean aesthetic. Our favorite space is the kitchen, with its beautiful waterfall island, exquisite range and ample storage options.
