Nestled on a peninsula overlooking Wayzata Bay in Minnesota, this exquisite lake house embodies the timeless elegance of East Coast shingle-style architecture. Designed by Swan Architecture together with Streeter Custom Builder, this custom-built home stands on a truly exceptional property once owned by the first mayor of Minneapolis, boasting one of the most prominent shorelines on Wayzata Bay.

Influenced by the historic lake homes of Minnesota and the classic residences found along the East Coast, this dwelling showcases stunning design and meticulous craftsmanship. Its lower level boat house and open main floor plan feature multiple levels of decks, porches, and patios, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living while capitalizing on breathtaking views.

Every aspect of this home was carefully considered to optimize views, abundant natural light, and encourage effortless circulation between interior and exterior spaces. The choice of a bespoke classic East Coast shingle-style aesthetic perfectly complements the nautical nature of the site and aligns with the homeowners program goals.

Once the original Butler’s house on the property, has now been transformed into a beautiful Boat House. Rising proudly on the premises is the tallest residential flagpole in the state, proudly flying the U.S. flag—an emblematic tribute to the former homeowner who served as an ambassador.
