traditional style home exterior

Tritch Design in collaboration with Highmark Builders has custom designed this absolutely stunning traditional-style family house, nestled in Inver Grove Heights, a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota. Spanning 5,637 square feet, the home is gracefully ensconced amidst lush landscaping on a wooded property, promising luxurious living.

An open and airy feeling is evidenced by the ten-foot high ceilings and open-plan layout. Interior spaces were designed to be highly functional with the importance of creating spaces for family gatherings. A great room, as well as a hearth room just off the kitchen, are perfect for spending quality time with family and for entertaining guests.
