Tour this beautiful New England shingle-style home on Lake Minnetonka


Hendel Homes in collaboration with Vivid Interior Design has designed this New England shingle-style home for a family of four, nestled on Lake Minnetonka in Orono, Minnesota. Constructed on four private acres of lakeshore, this custom home emulates coastal English elegance with warm, inviting furnishings and finishes that juxtapose refined and natural for a truly rich contrast.

The interiors incorporate fresh updates to historical and traditional references and draw in the romantic, expansive lake views beyond. There are a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms in this stunning lake house. Continue below to see the rest of this inspiring home tour…


What We Love: This home on Lake Minnetonka provides a family with beautiful details throughout, from the magnificent entryway to the curved, vaulted ceiling in the living room. Spaces flow harmoniously from one to the next with customized furnishings and gorgeous material selections. A calming color palette offers a relaxed atmosphere, what one would want in lake house living. A wonderful home to enjoy for years to come.
